“Convenient location in downtown Lillehammer”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Very nice hotel conveniently located downtown, walking distance to shopping and restaurants. As mentioned, breakfast and dinner, plus afternoon snacks, all included, makes for a very good value. There is also free coffee, tea, fruit/nuts (in relax/fitness room) offered all day. We reserved a superior room which was still too small for our needs (we were traveling with 4 pieces of luggage), but for the normal traveler, the space should be quite adequate. There is an Indian restaurant downstairs next door, and I noticed the smell of curry in the hallway of some of the rooms near the front of the hotel. We were in the back, so there was no smell. For U.S. travelers, there are a few things lacking in a normal 4 star (U.S.) hotel, e.g. no wash cloths, small European shower, no polished marble floors with granite counters and tub in the bathroom, etc., but my rating is relative to European hotels. Also, there is no self-serve laundromat in the hotel (some old information mentioned they had coin-operated laundry), but they offer laundry/dry cleaning services, plus, there is a laundromat down the main street. The hotel is quaint, staff is friendly and accommodating.

This hotel provides excellent service and food well above expectations. Location is great, and safe parking facilities is a big pluss. This has become our favourite place to spend the night when travelling the Gudbrandsdal.

Great hotel, great evening buffet (included in room)
Nice hotel staff, nothing to complain about there.
I will recommend this over all other hotels in downtown Lillehammer.
Did oversleep for breakfast so can*t say anything about it.

I was surprised in a positive way : for that price, we got included both a good breakfast and dinner buffet. Additional this is a cosy hotel with a more personal touch, e.g.there are books on the desk in your room. About the service there is nothing to complaint either. I would like to say, this is especially a good tip for foreigners visiting Norway and expecting high prices for everything. Here I found at least one exception.

This is a very good hotel in this segment, and probably the best in Lillehammer. The service was excellent, the room was very good and clean and the location is fine - less than 2 minutes from the main walking street in Lillehammer. A few details for improvement: a smell of food in the corridor on the second floor (,but not inside the room), exchanging the shower curtains and making sure that there is cognac in the bar.
In all a very agreeable stay in a "homely" atmosphere - good value for money.

Thank You very much for a nice review.
The reason why there is curtains instead of glass walls on two of our rooms is so that disabled persons should be able to access the shower. Almost all the rest of the bathrooms are with glass-walls as you prefer.
What happend to the cognac I am not sure. Normally there are sufficient for everyone. Probably it has been sold out right before you came. We apologize for this.
Have a nice day.

Very nice hotel right in the centre of Lillehammer. Great service and a very relaxed atmosphere. We booked 5 days half board for a ski vacation. Nice breakfast with good selection of bread, cereals, yoghurts etc. Tea and coffee free all day and waffles in the afternoon. Lovely supper like self service dinner with good variety of food.
Parking garage under the hotel
We had a superieur room which was large with a couch and 2 chairs.
Only drawbacks were the relative soft and small bed. Pillows where great but mattress to soft for my like. Another point -not a major issue for us but for some it may- was the fact the elevator only reaches 3th level and we were on 5... We stayed in the main building part at the Storagaten so no nuicance for us from the postal distribution area behind the hotel.
Personal most friendly and helpful
Skiing in Hafjell and Kvitfjell was nice and relaxed although the areas are way smaller than the large resorts in the alps. No long waiting times and no hustle at the lifts!

Room Tip: rooms at the Storagate part back side are without nuisance from the postal station behind. Elevators...

Lillehammer is a quaint community with a few hotel options for visitors. The Storgata is the main drag in town, and the Clarion Collection Hotel Hammer is located directly on it, only 2 blocks from the pedestrian-only area, which makes it a perfect location.

The hotel has its own parking garage for 60 NOK/night, or there is plenty of on-street parking, but that requires you to fill the meter during the day.

The staff was very welcoming as soon as we walked in the door. The hotel provided a good free breakfast AND a quality free dinner. In addition, there is ready-made coffee/tea available 24/7 for guests.

The room itself was very comfortable. The 2 single beds provided are separated by a table, so a guest would need to move the table to push the beds together, but that isn't a big deal. The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. In addition, the hotel had an excellent wi-fi signal.
