“So close to the bus stop you could fall ovet it.”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

This was the first hotel on our tour of Norway a good choice as the bust stop next door to the hotel whisked you in to the centre of Oslo very quickly (purchase a return ticket from the driver it is much better value). The hotel is clean, spacious and offers good value for money the breakfast is very good, plenty of choice hot & cold all available. The rooms are of a good size with decent bathrooms, we journeyed in to Oslo centre for our evning meal so cannot comment on the resaurant. All in a good hotel with lovely staff who were very helpfull, to our embarrasement and relief they spoke perfect English, with a smile. Thanks to all at the QHO

This hotel has books all everywhere. All through the halls, there are bookshelves with cosy little benches beside them, where you can sit down and read. Every room has 3 different books that are recently printed in addition to one big book with local history and one big book of art. The food and service is excellent! :) This is the hotel where you can go all by yourself and have a great stay, just by sitting reading good books either inside in a cosy place or outside in the beautiful garden.

Short travel distance to Lillestrøm (4km) and Oslo (20 km). Close to Hvam bus station for public transportation.
The hotel is ok for conferencing and shorter stays.
Rooms are a equipped with large lcd tv and minibar, nice bathroom however not very modern.
Library with a variety of books in the hotel room and other areas.
Fireplace and newspapers by the reception.
Good complimentary breakfast and lunch available
Free rental of bikes and helmets by hotel, free soft ice for guests.

Conference hotel located on the countryside between Oslo and Oslo airport. You need a car to get there. The service are good, rooms are large, but the restaurant have really high prices if you have in mind you are at the countryside. The hotel use the possibility, when you do not have any options to eat elsewhere. On the other hand the hotels focus are at conferences and business.

Please note; Wintertime the turn off the radiators, and it is extremely cold in the rooms. I have stayed there more than 50 times and it is the same in all rooms..

I spent a couple of days running a seminar in this hotel last week. The conference facilities are excellent and well organised.

The hotel itself is more functional than luxurious. It's situated right by the highway but there were no noise issues and this location does mean the place is very well connected to the airport and the city.

There were a couple of issues with the room, hence my rating of "average" rather than "good";

1. My room had a tiny single bed, which was too soft and had a light fitting about 30cms above the one and only pillow.

2. The room was freezing cold. The bathroom had underfloor heating, but the bedroom only had a small heater under the window with no visible means to turn it on.

I think it's quite likely that the problem with the heating is not representative of the hotel, but I can only rate it on my experience and I was cold!

In summary, an excellent conference hotel. Probably not one for the tourists.

Meetings, a necessety of office life. Now the overnight session at Olavsgaard. An ok hotel, next to the E6, situated just out side Lillestrøm, en route to Gardermoen. A nice stop-over for those with early flights.

The rooms were nice, the check-in service ok and the food was above average. In short, this is a hotel to be recomended. Maybe not for the romantic getaway, but for meeting and rest on the travel, yes in deed.

Were here only during one day, and great staff, great facilities, OUTSTANDING lunch, and lots of space to park.

One of the better hotels i've seen, despite the fact that it's an old one.

Recommendable!
