My college-aged daughter and I spent 5 nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a little studio which was perfect for us. The hotel's very friendly and helpful manager, Shaun, and a driver, met us at the Flybus station and brought us back there at the end of our stay. In between, Shaun was a wealth of information, arranging for a rental car for us, giving us wonderful advice on places to visit and how to get there. Our room was quiet, spotlessly clean and large, overlooking the snow-capped mountain range. The breakfasts were huge and kept us filled for hours. Although there are not a lot of restaurants in the area, there are grocery stores and a couple of fast-food places right outside the door. Shaun told us about the Alafoss bistro, a great place where we ate dinner 2 nights - the food was great, the price was right, the atmosphere friendly and it was a very pleasant 10-minute walk from our hotel door. It's very easy to get into the city center on the bus right across the street, so you really don't have to have a car. We rented one for a couple of days to take day trips and the rest of the time we used the bus to get into the city. All in all, this hotel is a real bargain and if you want to avoid the noise and bustle of the city center hotels, go to this one!
