Being a seasoned world traveller and Norwegian citizen working in Norway with a certain amount of annual nights in Norwegian conference hotels, the staff of this hotel is palpably more attentive, interested, pleasant and accommodating than the average. It is apparent that they are well trained, granted a high level of "power of attorney" and working in a healthy environment. I felt personally recognized and had a few laughs and jokes with the Clarion crew. Excuisitly and interestingly designed, the hotel is located a short walk from the centre of Trondheim and has a pleasant outdoor area facing the harbour. The roof terrace is wonderful. Traveling with children, we enjoyed Saturday morning in the huge water park next door. We were there for a family gathering, facilities for our formal activities were excellent. The breakfast is outstanding. The rooms are small but well designed and clean. Norwegian conference hotels have in general an issue with dinner food quality, in this case no sensational experience however in the category "good". It is not the fault of the staff that prices for food and (alcoholic) drink are horrendous, we brought, by experience, our own "topping up" wine supply we had in our room- so sad the industry has not realized that if they offer reasonable prices guests will buy more from the bar instead of drinking pocketed booze. I guess all this is regulated, and it is a common phenomena seen in all Norwegian hotels.
All in all, a great choice in Trondheim if you can afford it.
