I had the opportunity to visit Øigardseter Fjellstue (Mountain Lodge) in July, perhaps the best part of the summer season in Høvringen, which also is called the gateway to the Rondane National Park. The area is known for its accessible and varied mountain terrain. From Oigardseter you have splendid views over the mountains and Gudbrandsdalen itself. And the place is ideally situated for walking with a lot of marked trails throughout.
The hotel has a generous capacity of room-alternatives, from double room to apartments and larger cabins. The rooms are fairly small (no double beds) and with simple facilities, but including WC and shower. The whole place is impeccably clean and spacious with a number of dining rooms, seating rooms and several open fireplaces.
I was in particular fond of the quality of food served (prices are including half or full board) - breakfast and lunch buffet and a three-course dinner. Nicely presented and delicious Norwegian dishes. The wine-list is not great, but the prices was a very pleasant surprise, indeed! Above all, the attentive staff made the stay and overall experience simply just great!
This is a place I’m delighted to recommend to others!
