I just needed some time out. Hence, I was looking for a quiet place, where I might be able to swim, hike, and maybe cycle, enjoy the nature, not to have to worry about food and where I can easily get to and fro from Oslo with public transport. Sundvollen Hotel seemed to fit the bill.
Result: The kitchen has its own herb and berry garden, the food is made on the premise, no convenience pap from a tin. All bread, incl. knækbrød is baked by their own baker. Despite being a conference hotel during the summer it is peaceful and quiet with more than enough space. The room as also the bathroom had ample space. The members of staff – I live in Oslo, where the concept of service is rather lacking, which has made me qui jumpy by now – but the members of staff in this hotel were fantastic. They actually made my stay into a holiday with their friendliness and service-minded orientation. They do care and should there be a hiccup, something might need fixing or just the requirement for information, they will go out of their way to make it possible. This includes the chamber maids as also the chefs, the waiters, the ladies from the reception and the service manager.
And to get there I just had to get on the buss towards Hønefoss, get off in Sundvollen and walk 100m till the reception.
