We originally went on the Splendours of Norway Tour in 2004 and enjoyed ourselves so much that this July we decided to go back to Norway on the same tour with Crystals.
As on our first visit the hotel was great, Jon the owner and Unn his daughter made us feel like we had arrived home. The staff are brilliant and nothing is too much trouble for them.
The Skei Hotel is a wonderful place to stay, once again our room overlooked the beautiful Lake Jolster, The food, buffet style, was always fresh with plenty to full us after a day in the fjords or on the glacier. You are also given a paper bag at breakfast to help yourself from the buffet to make yourself a packed lunch. Three course meals with plenty of choice, homemade soup, salads, cold meats and a choice of 4 hot dishes to choose from. Great desserts wetted our appetite. A great modern swimming pool, sauna, table tennis, mini golf and tennis courts were available to use free of charge. On the lake the hotel also provided free rowing boats.
Once again we had a wonderful guide the lovely Katarina, who went out of her way to make sure everyone was happy with their holiday, nothing was too much trouble for her, her knowledge of the area is fantastic.
The tours are well worth going on and good value for money.
We would fully recommend the Skei hotel as a wonderful place to stay and also the Splendors of Norway tour as we think it is the best way to see the real Norway!
