“Old Historic hotel, excellent for hiking trips”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Hotel with tradition dating back to the 1800's. All rooms are individual with squeaking floorboards. Food in restaurant is excellent prepared. Ideal location for hiking trips to Snøhetta and lots more. they also offer "safaris" to watch Moskus.

Room Tip: All rooms are individual.....

For the second time this summer we chose to have dinner at this old and beautiful lodge. And we were not let down this time either. Local ingredients, lots of flavours and well presented!Beeing a traveller in the Dovre mountains for the last 30 some years, Kongsvold has always been a place for serenity and summer delight. Yes - the place has a history dating back to King Eystein in the early 1100s and have been used for travellers between Trondheim and Oslo ever since, so don't expect New York Hilton standards. All buildings area also under the Norwegian protection act, so I guess the owner has some mean restrictions on his hands...Instead suck in the atmosphere of times past and enjoy a charming senery and great food. Expensive? Oh yes...even by Norwegian standards. It takes quite an effort to keep authenticity alive - just loved it!

Room Tip: If you're a family - why not try the Vinjestua or Fantstua...

We stayed here so we could see musk oxen and reindeer and for that purpose this location is ideal - a wild musk oxen was viewable from our bedroom window pretty well throughout our stay.
The mountain lodge is a collection of charming wooden buildings, in a lovely mountain setting. The rooms themselves are however very basic, like a dated youth hostel.
The main house is furnished with traditional local furniture, ornaments and photos and there is a little museum which, although showing signs of wear is still quite interesting.
The hosts are very proud of their lodge and have a passion for high quality cuisine. The food was elaborately presented and well made, although personally I find myself irritated by places where the chef explains the dish to you, especially with fancy descriptions ('with chocolate air' - come on, it was a bit of froth!). The chefs were not very experienced in catering for vegetarians which is not unusual in Norway but they tried to give us something special every day. We did not drink alcohol which was as well as the prices were astronomical even by Norwegian standards.
The young waiting staff and our musk ox guide were lovely but we found the host somewhat superficial in his hospitality - he started to tell us about the history of the lodge then wandered off and never came back; nowhere to be seen on our last morning.
It was a pleasant enough stay and the location was great, but the accommodation is not really up to scratch.

Our week long trip which took us along the the beautiful Atlantic drive and through Kristiansund to Trondheim was planned around a visit to Kongsvold Fjeldstue and the stunning Dovrefjell and the nearby alpine plant collection. It had been featured in a Tv documentary we had seen and I had read several reviews in travel magazines so we were really looking forward to our stay. We arrived at reception to be told that we had no booking. When we showed a copy the confirmation we were sent by e.mail we received no apology just a grunt and were given a twin room which the Queen of Norway had stayed in once upon a time. The room was cold and could be described as of 'vintage youth hostel' standard, the adjoining bathroom must have been from the 1960's. We had booked dinner in advance and came down to have an aperitif 15 minutes before dinner was to be served. We couldn't find anyone to serve us and when we did they said dinner was delayed.We had plenty of time to look at the antique furniture which fills the sitting rooms. Nearly an hour later we were ushered in to the dining room. The portions were so small it was ridiculous,postage stamp size fish course, the garnishes were tired, the only high point was the full bowl of roasted potatoes and the dessert. We choose to have the house wines with each course - the red wine was served colder than the white and when I asked for a more room temperert wine I was told that we were on the top of a mountain! The accomodation, food and especially wine was incredible expensive even by Norwegian standards and the service non existent. We definately will not be back.

Room Tip: The ' Queens' room is over a sitting room with a piano, there is no sound proofing - take ea...

I remember staying at this hotel as a kid, and then it was great. When i returned many years later, I wasn't that impressed.

I got a single room, with a smal bed, no tv, no desk and shair, and a no better than OK bathroom.

They have a dinner that I'm told are great, but i didn't arrive early enough to try that.

The breakfast was OK, and no more than that..

My expectations wasn't met, and I don't know if I'm going to come back..

Room Tip: Get one of the bigger rooms, i hope that helps!

We decided to stay here to break up a train journy from Trondheim and what a great decision this was.The setting is superb, not quite in the middle of nowhere but nearly so. The inn is timbered throughout and furnished in high quality traditional style. The major surprise however was to find such fine dining in so remote a spot. The food was imaginative and up to the standard of any top city restaurant. Expensive, but then this is Norway; they don't do cheap!

I have stayed at Kongsvold Fjellstuer three times totally, and I hope there will be more occations.

This is not the average hotel, and room standard is simple. Buildings are old, and the rooms are spread around in different buildings. But keep in mind that these tradtional houses have been renovated and upgraded while keeping the traditional style. So you get uniqeness for your money, more than comfort. But although a road goes close by, this is the norwegian countyside and rooms are very quiet.

Location is rare, so is the hospitality by the hosts and their staff. So, if you treasure closeness to breathtaking nature more than room standard, this should definitely be a pick while travelling in Norway.

The really great thing about this hotel is their food - so you definitely should try out their lunch and/or dinner while staying. It is a bit pricy, but well worth it. Breakfast I find to more average, but charmingly different from hotels.
