“Expensive, dated but competent and satisfactory. A bit strange.”
Reviewed 25 August 2010

Elverum is pretty much a one-horse town, and the Central is the dominant hotel. In need of modernisation, it is nevertheless competent and satisfactory. But for the money (£150/night), in most parts of the world you would expect a significantly higher standard. Breakfast is comprehensive and included in the rate, car parking is free, internet is fee and quite fast, but the rooms are quite compact. Singles are extremely small. Bathrooms are in need of modernisation, with blocked extractor fan (jammed with dust), and around the hotel you can come into contact with strangely positioned stuffed birds..... Gymn consists of a punchbag, lying against the wall adrift from its ceiling hook, and a skipping rope hung on the wall ! A quirky experience, but relatively clean and comfortable. Only real complaint is the value for money, but this is partly accounted for by the fact that it is Norway which is generally expensive anyway. The staff are helpful and speak excellent English.

Reviewed 7 October 2006

We stayed at the Hotel Central for 4 nights in September, 2006. Our rooms were on the 4th floor and had wood floors. We looked at rooms on a lower floor that had carpeting. We preferred the wood floors. The rooms were clean with lots of windows. The hotel was doing some construction when we were there, so that had some effect on how the hotel looked. The breakfast was good with quite a few choices. We ate at the hotel restaurant one night. The food was good. The staff was friendly and helpful.
