“Winter Wonderland”
Reviewed April 18, 2006

Nice hotel a short and quaint 10 minute walk from the centre of town. The rooms are basic, but clean and functional. No bathtub, just a shower that is open on the floor, so water splashes all about. The breakfast is good, but basic. The hotel sauna was very nice after a day of cross country skiing, but it's split with a separate sauna for men and women - clean, but again basic.

The area has exceptional cross country trails (about a 20 minute car drive away) and unlike many other countries/areas you basically drive to a trail, park your car and off you go, without any boundries. The cross country trails are really quite exceptional.

In town there are several good restaurants and shops. The drive to the hotel from Oslo's main airport is very easy and takes about 2 hours.

Had a lovely break here in Dec 02. Simple inexpensive apartment, clean, nice small kitchen, dishwasher etc.

About 15-20 minutes walk from train station. 25 minute bus to Ski area.

Nice walk to the local quiet bar in the evening.

If you don't mind the walk/ taxi from the train station (i didn't), its perfect!
