We Loved every minute of our stay here. We stayed in an apartment .There were six of us and with three bedrooms and two bathrooms it was perfect. We were here for the skiiing and went to Hafjell every day to ski, where the slopes were great . In the evening we returned to Apartment and went Tobagnning on hill beside us or ice skating also beside us!!. The apartment is so warm and the staff at reception cannot do enough to help you(even let me use computer in office to print airline tickets home).There is free inernet in reception also but no printer. Hotel is quite with no real bar or resteraunt but only ten minute walk to town ( be wary of up hill on return). If you Book a five day or more lift pass for skiiing you are entitled to free bus pass fro rception otherwise 400Kr each way on bus for adults 200kR for kids(we only found out on third day!). We also did husky dog safari through hotel this was brilliant and would highly recommend it. Highlights of trip: excellent Skiiing , snow and take your breath away landscape Tips for future: It is mor expensive than Ireland and UK for Food and drink, we went to supermarket and stayed in 3 nights and ate out four. The Hotel has two restaraunts down town and they are superb (make sure book through hotel as get 15% discount) especially all you can eat Brazilian food.. You pay a bit more for food but all very high quality. Beware twy take New year and Christmas seriously so alot of Bars and Resteraunts close around these dates. The fire works all through the town on New Years Eve are amazing and there is a big Tourch Procession up the olympic hill . i
Buy a few bottles in airport on way over for the fridge as norway not in EU so duty free!! We loved every minute of our stay here and our 11 year old thought it was what the North Pole would be like!
