great location, lovely hosts and personell, great food based on regional ingredients with contemporaneous interpretation, fine craft beers, rooms are a bit small, but this is what you expect in a small mountain hotel, the sauna helped enormously to warm up stiff muscles after long snowshoe hikes

A real get away from it all holiday. Excellent and inventive local food beautifully presented. Rooms are small but clever use of space in bathrooms. More than made up for in authentic living space with sweeping views, log fires and reindeer skins ! Very comfortable place to be with cheerful and friendly staff. Andre acted as a fantastic guide both...

We visited Hindseter for 3 days in February, and we were very satisfied with the place itself, the landscape and the service. We have for some time looked for å a small hotel in the mountains as an alternative to a mountain cabin of our own, however so far without finding a place that we really would like to return...

Perfect location for back country skiing. The hotel offers a relaxing atmosphere, old fashioned with friendly service. It offers a nice sauna and jacuzzi, which is nice after a long day out in the mountains. What it doesn't offer in modern slick facilities, it really beats everyone regarding the kitchen. We are experienced mountaineers, loves great food, and are spending...

My husband and I have been here twice og will definitely be back next year. The food is great - Homemade, from local producers and a fantastic selection of cheeses. The beautiful surroundings are perfect for hiking, hunting and fishing. Impeccable service!

We we got the "Norwegian Hospitality" in a special way because the hotel was highly crowded and the landlord was over challenged. She told us in an unfriendly way, for dinner we cannot get 2 seats in the restaurant, only in the reception area it is possible. There it was bloody cold, the open fire was started after our claims...

Dear Derinder! I remember you well, as we are in the lucky situation to almost never have guests who are so little satisfied with our service and food. To keep things simple: I must admit that we had a challenge to manage the table reservations with third part booking systems like booking.com - when we have so little contact prior...

In a month travelling around Northern Europe, this was our favourite stay. The beds weren't 5 star but were fine. The room wasn't the largest we'd had, but was ample. We just loved the way the staff want to help you enjoy this amazing part of the world. It took longer than google maps suggested to drive from Oslo airport,...

If you want a little higher class on your stay in this area, this is the place! We slept there for one night. The rooms are just ok. The bathroom was newly renovated (but you can hear the neighbour pretty good). But this is not a place for hanging in your room. Rooms are just for sleeping. The food is...

The hotel is beautiful situated in Jotunheimen and offers more "upper class" experience for hikers. The double rooms are small even for a family of 3, but clean and tidy. The food is excellent - both the dinner and breakfast offers local specialities served in a delicate manner. But don't bring small kids here. The hotel will help you with...

Thank you for taking you time to review your stay and thank you for your nice words. I agree that we do not have any special offers for children - still we have a lot of families coming back year after year enjoying the tranquillity outside and inside. We chose not to have music or TV running in our dining...
