“unable to order, perfect @Esso”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

At 11:30 unable to order lunch when we visited as individual travellers.
No time to wait and went to nearby ESSO fuelstation, there prepared a perfect, lunch build from fresh ingredients.
I feel sorry to report this, hope they can be more service minded, service orientated, flexible and tourist friendly.
Driving such a hotel in such environment creates expectations, this is disappointing.

Good hotel for overnight stay on the way up north or south or if you want some peace and quiet for a few days or to explore that part of Norway. Pleasant, clean, somewhat dated decor, typical Norwegian efficiency and lack of fuss. Very good hotel restaurant. The Norwegian Christmas buffet lunch ( a week before Christmas) was plentiful and with excellent food throughout, from starters to the delicious Norwegian cakes. There's excellent shopping across the street for Norwegian artifacts and clothing.

Another beautiful fjord location in Norway. Our two nights here were wonderful with a spacious room overlooking Lake Jorstal and a lovely deck area. After sightseeing in the area, the glacier, the home of artist Aastrup, etc., returning here was relaxing and peaceful. A special treat for us was the hotel's owner inviting us to his "Hut in the Sky" for an hour of stories about his family and the area and music from his accordian, along with coffee and cookies. A very special evening. The town also has some cute, reasonably priced gift shops.

This hotel is near Førde. It is quite OK for one night - room quite simple with view of lake. A nice stop before travelling further. Food very good; glutenfri bread. Late night reading novel - leader reception, lit a fire in the fireplace for me.

Room Tip: Do not know. Only two rooms available when we called for reservation.

It is a great place for a 1 night stay. The place is very quite, nothing much to do. The is an indoor swimming pool. There is a nice souvenior shop nearby. Price cheap compared to other places. The store owner is a nice sweet gentleman. He will personally recommend you things that are reasonable and that are good buys.

Room Tip: Should get rooms nearer to the lobby if not you will be walking in a maze trying to get to your room...

I have spent one night in august during my trip around norway. the hotel is a standard hotel. clean with big rooms. I have reserved a superior room overlooking the fjord. the view was amazing. this is a small village on the main road and there is nothing particular but one stop for an evening is quite good. Restaurant offer a big buffet or a la carte menù. a bit expensive but good. service at the front desk is not very active. I made a reservation through the web asking for a basket of fruit in room for my wife birthday but nothing was arrange at our arrival.

Room Tip: ask for a superior room overlooking the fjord

We ordered from the 'a la carte' menu. Maybe the chef in kitchen had a bad day.
They didn't manage to bake pommes fries, they initially served burned food. The hamburger was really not tasty, also this was more or less overcooked. Salade was cut in very big pieces.
Overal taste was too salty and absolute nothing special.
We expected more quality and inspiration from this well know hotel/restaurant.
Overall quality of the food was below the 'veikro' standard.
Price was therefore too high.
Only plus was that the quantity was ok.

We really think that they can do better, due to our previous experiences.

Tor_Skrede, Director of Sales at Thon Hotel Jolster, responded to this review, 28 August 2013
Thank you very much for your feedback from your visit to our hotel and restaurant earlier this month.

We are very sorry to learn that this most recent visit of yours was not up to your expectations, based on earlier visits, which we understand have been good- and positive experiences for you, which we are of course happy to learn.

Our management and restaurant- and kitchen team members have now spent time going through this incident, where all details have been investigated, discussed and analyzed. It seems clear that some routeens had not initially been followed, however during the meal been sorted out and corrected professionally by present staff members on duty. It has also been established that our “Cowboy burgers” were ordered, which are somewhat different from ordinary burgers,- but should nevertheless of course always be fresh, tasty and correctly presented.

On basis of the above, we again apologise for the fact that not everything initially “went by the book” on a very busy day, but at the same time we feel that everything was done by our staff members on duty that evening to make necessary corrections and improvements as quickly as possible during your meal.

However, and in spite of all internal routeens for our à la carte menu having now been rechecked and updated for all staff members, we would like your next visit to our restaurant to be as good-, pleasant and as positive as practically possible. Therefore I would like to invite you to send me an e-mail to my personal adress tor@skeihotel.no with necessary details for next time you plan to visit us. Then I will personally make sure that a suitable arrangement is agreed and prepared for you for a happy and memorable visit and meal. I look forward to receiving your e-mail at your earliest convenience.
