We just spent three weeks traveling through Norway by car and on foot, staying in various types of accommodation (including our tent), and absolutely loved the Turtagro on the Sognefjellet. The room wasn't huge but clean and tastefully decorated, and had glorious views of the Hurrangane and everything you would expect from a mountain hotel.
The lobby/fireplace room was very cozy and was filled with nostalgic photographs. There was also a library full of books on climbing and hiking in just about anywhere in the world in a variety of languages (not just Norwegen).
The rooms do not have television, which did not bother us at all. An annex to the lobby had internet and a widescreen television for those suffering withdrawal.
The food was excellent, we opted for full board, which allowed us to pack our own lunch from the delicious breakfast buffet. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and we felt welcome and could relax.
The only downside to this hotel, as with most of the best places to stay in Norway, was the price, and it is the only reason I did not give this hotel full marks.
I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling the Sognefjellet in Norway.
