“Winter is the best of course”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

This is an excellent winter hotel with all the facilities. Open in summer also, but not the best hiking area in summer. Still a very good choice.

Room Tip: No bad rooms that i have noticed

We were touring the west coast of Norway with our Norwegian friends and stayed overnight here. The rooms were very good. We took a walk up to the top of the small hill behind the resort and, WOW, the scenery was awesome - mainly a flat plateau with majestic mountains in the distance - no wonder it is a successful cross-country skiing resort!! But the surprise came at dinner - the restaurant is long and faces south, with sheer glass windows all the way along - the scene beyond was breathtaking! As for the food - just imagine what a banquet fit for a king looks like - that comes close to the standard here - for starters you had the choice of various salmon, caviars, cooked meats and many other dishes. I just wish we could have stayed longer!!

Room Tip: Ask for one

Storefjell is a big hotel located at Golsfjellet 1000 meters above sea level. The hotel is “in a middle of nowhere” so you do have to use the hotel for everything from eating to the nightlife. But the hotel can offer very much. This hotel is like a cruise ship with a lot of activities, many common rooms and a restaurant with a buffet that you perhaps never have seen before. I remember my first night at Storefjell. As Norwegian I was used to big breakfast buffets at the hotels, but this one just made me startle. Another time I had dinner here (no buffet that time) and when the guests entered the restaurant all the waiters was lined up to great the guests. And this is one of Storefjell’s big advantages. The service is so friendly. When I have entered the hotel and approached the reception, the receptionist shake my hand. This isn’t common at a hotel with several hundred rooms. Here the employees are drilled in giving the guests good service.
The only minus are the rooms, they are just average. And of course such a big hotel has its advantages and disadvantages compared to a smaller hotel.
