Skarsnuten is located at the best spot if you want a view (ask for it upon booking) and good for ski in-ski out. If you do not care about the afterski party down at the bottom of the ski slopes it is perfekt for alpine skiing. Access to cross country tracks did not seem that good.
We stayed in a deluxe room which was nice and clean, great comfortable bed, and large bathrom. A little minus for our shampoo being empty two days in a row, and not able to replace it when we asked. There was a fitness room with som weights and a few cardio machines that was OK, and free wi fi.
Since we decided to have dinner at the hotel both nights, we were a little dissapointed of the short a-la-carte menu. The main dishes varied in size, and one looked like a starter and was too small whilst the other looked like a main and was good. One night one of the starters were slightly frosen. We opted for the hotel dinner because of the drive down to town. We thought the dinner was a little overpriced when you pay for the room in addition. The service was so so, mostly young Swedish people working there, and service did not seem their top priority. It is a shame as this hotel has great potential but did not give us the WOW factor. Something was missing to really make us feel like wanting to come back here very soon.
