We stayed for one night as we were travelling throughout the country quite a bit. The old fashion hotel has a beautiful front view with the Nisser lake and mountains skyline on the background. The lobby and hotel's various lounges are beautiful art pieces and a reminder of old time blissful serenity. We were even welcomed by a piano solo concerto when we arrived! The breakfast was good and plentiful, staff warm and helpful, and the wi-fi connection very good indeed - I could watch an important football game impeccably :) The hotel was originally built in 1864 by the same Straand family still owning it now, so tradition is the key word, with old, beautiful furniture spread in the lobby and all the numerous lounges around. By visiting only these rooms is like a trip back in time, just lovely! Otherwise the hotel was expanded in stages so the rooms can be different. I could not help myself noticing the old, if not aging furniture with kind of stiff mattresses and old pillows which made my back hurt in the morning. The bright side is that the hotel is categorized as a resort too and you have lots of utilities available to enjoy: swimming pool, sauna, gym, tennis court, playgrounds with trampolines, etc. for kids, boats and canoes to rent, or you can choose to go on a trip with M/S Fram on the Nisser lake and Vråvatn. A good choice is to take a trip on theTelemark canal, a true amazing experience with its unique locks system ( http://www.visittelemark.com/telemarkskanalen ). The location of the hotel gives actually plenty of opportunities for trips in the vicinity, so I would recommend warmly staying for a few days there if you come in the area. Enjoy!

My fifth stay at this hotel, which offers good rooms at an affordable price. Great internet connection without password, quite good food at dinner (buffet), great deserts, very good breakfast, and a very nice and a very accomodating and service minded staff. Quiet rooms, good sleep. I got a reserved dinner and breakfast table in the restaurant without asking for it! It's an old hotel, but still well kept. The hotel has good beds, has a minibar frigde in the room, but no minibar content, since everthing in this chain of hotels are moved to a small kiosk near the reception area, but rather small and old TV's with few channels. But who cares with a great internet connection!? Rooms are without ceiling lights, sp quite dark in the evening. A possiblity to swich on a ceiling light would have made my working experience more pleasant. The table light does not give enough light for working with papers.

After a 5 hr bus ride from Oslo up into the mountains one would think we would end up at a yuult campsite. What a surprise to find this gem hidden in the woods. This resort has been in the family for 3 generations and looks like a pristine establishment. There is a gym on premises and you can schedule a massage. The staff is wonderful and there is a piano player in the open lounge area. The fresh seafood dinner we ate was as good as one we had in Oslo. Down the road is a lake with a picturesque setting. Well worth the long journey.
