“Elin and good friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Just spent an amazing weekend on Gaustablikk together with good friends! We had an amazing time skiing and enjoying the fantastic nature!
We lived in nice cabins and had a grate time visiting the hotel with swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and a hot tub. Highly recommend Gaustablikk Høyfjelshotell!

Every year for 9 years we have taken the whole family here for a few days of relaxation and pleasure. The hotel itself is family driven with a relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and an attractive lobby with a wood-burning fireplace and an outside sun terrace. There is an indoor swimming pool with both a hot sauna and a steam room - both free, but the jacuzzi is at a charge.
The restaurant buffet served every Friday is an outstanding experience with almost every imaginable traditional Norwegian fare like lobster, crayfish, crabs, shrimp, mussels and so on, pluss a number of hot dishes and a carving board serving generous slices of reindeer meat and other delicacies.
The hotel also operates the next door skiing area with several ski lifts and well maintained slopes, pluss a network of groomed trails for cross country skiing, some of them illuminated for nighttime use. A special treat is the free ski and boot rental for children aged 7 or younger, including free lift tickets. Great deal for young families.
There is hardly any other mountain resort in Norway that has such a condensed array of winter leisure activites on their doorstep.

Room Tip: Try for a room facing the Gaustatoppen mountain

Nice family driven hotel . This is the place to stay in the winter with very good off piste opportunitues og Mountain Gaustatoppen 1882 m.o.ocean. Take Gaustabanen inside the mountain to the top and go skiing down. Alson possible for children to ski one of the pistes down.

I've stayed here on a couple occasions, so it's definitely a place I come back to. The hotel is in part a ski resort, but both my stays have been in the summer so I can't really comment on that. It has nice and friendly staff, very nice and clean and a large lounge to relax, which part of has a bar. It has a swimming pool which I didn't try.

My biggest complaint here is the bed, it's much too hard for me. Next time I'll probably bring a thin inflateable mattress to put on top. Breakfast serving is top-notch, a huge selection of everything and beautifully presented.

The restaurant serves a all you can eat buffet with both hot and cold food in the evenings, again a huge selection of everything. Three or four meats with a chef slicing and serving it, different potatoes, and other things to go with. A good selection of seafood including crab, lobster, shrimp, caviar, and more. Also a very good selection of vegetables, desserts. My only disappointed is a limited selection of beer. I'll add that I find it a little pricey at about 400 NOK. Although not an issue for me, but for my travel company - everything at their buffet was gluten free.

Scenerey is lovely with an amazing view of Mount Gausta, it's a quiet and peaceful area. It's located just a short drive from the usual starting point for going up on the mountain, but also just a short drive from the more historical sites of Tinnsjøen and Vemork with had significance during WW2 - also this area is the start of Norsk Hydro and it's invention of artifical fertilizer which revolutionized food production (read about norwegian heavy water sabotage).

I'll be back for sure.

Only stayed one night, as on a motor bike tour of Norway.Unfortunately,there was a low heavy mist,so we could not see the large mount Gausta, behind the hotel,we would have had a great view from our bedroom window. The bedroom was fine for one night,a bit on the small side.There is a good size swimming pool and a steam room,both I found too cold, and this was in August. I fancied the Jacuzzi, it was behind closed doors, bubbling away, but to my disappointment,I found you had to pay equivalent to £5 for 13mins.use. Thought, that expensive! The evening buffet was outstanding,everything was well cooked and well presented, with reindeer,lamb,veal and beef on offer.The reindeer is popular,and goes quick, I missed out.
It is a ski destination,so expect to pay plenty.But nothing is cheap in Norway.

Absolutely amazing place, scenes are fab. The staff are a credit and the food superb. I had the best nights sleep ever, then to be met by a superb Norwegian style breakfast, what more can I say. We left with a longing to return and return we will. If you want open unchanged and vistas to die for then this is it.
