My partner and I stayed here for a few days recently and were VERY disappointed. We had such wonderful experiences in Oslo and Balestrand, and were hoping at least for the hotel to be true to its website. Our room was unclean, with outdated decor and ragged, stained furniture, and crowded, unsafe electrics. There was a pube in the bath. Eeeek. The room was TINY. This must have been one of their older rooms, as I think there are better ones that have been rennovated. When we complained, we were moved to a much larger room that was quite well kitted out. The breakfast was pretty awful - the eggs were cold, the buffet looked more 'dumped' than 'arranged' and the staff made you feel like a nuisance just for wanting brown bread instead of white. The reception staff were cold. Yes, there were some facilities that were good eg wi-fi etc, but this is pretty standard these days and nothing to write home about. The 'art' experience was pretty dull and not really worth much. As you can see, we were actually pretty gutted as we had spent so much money. We would have turned right around and tried to find somewhere else had it not been for arriving late and then our agent being unavailable at the weekend. Definitely NOT recommended.
