The General Hotell was a pleasant surprise! It's a nice, clean, modern hotel. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The people that work there are very nice and the food is good. It's about a 15 minute drive from the town of Hønefoss and is in a pretty part of the countryside.

Would stay here again. Quiet location, helpful personnel, and a good breakfast. Enjoyed being out in the countryside; seemed more Norway. Appreciate the level of English and general helpfulness of employees.

A warm, clean, friendly hotel. Bar, good food, comfy beds - what more is there to say? Sited in an old military base, the initial impression is a bit odd. Only 5 minutes to Honefoss with a few bars and restaurants. A good pizza restaurant on-site makes the first night easy.

The room is nice, clean and big space. I love a breakfast here, There are not many foods but all good quality. The hotel location seem in the business park, this not bad just 15 min drive from the centre town and free parking. There are some business near the hotel such as Sport gym, Restaurants and shops.

A bit out of the way, this hotel has everything we needed. Breakfast was good, WiFi was OK. Nice clean rooms. Friendly bar The location was a bit a way and the area was quite industrial (so was the exterior of the hotel)
