If you'd like to stay at a historical place with a lot of character, you could do so much worse than Nordre Ekre. This farm hotel is run by a husband and wife team, who'll greet you by shaking your hand and introducing themselves to you. This is the kind of place this is: it's atmospheric and really pleasant.

The buildings are mostly from the 1700s and 1800s, but the interior is more eclectic. There is both a common room if you feel like socialising, and some of the hotel rooms also come with the option of a shared kitchen. The room I stayed in had its own bathroom, but I don't know if this is the case of all the rooms. Check ahead when booking!

Both of the owners are trained chefs, and so the food at this hotel is simply amazing. The price for a three course meal isn't that bad compaired to other upscale restaurants in Norway either. If you don't have time to stay overnight at Nordre Ekre, you should go just for the food!

The only downside to this hotel is that because it's located in such a remote place, you'll need some sort of transportation to get you there. If you get in touch with the owners before going, though, they'll advice you on the best modes of transportation.

To sum up: the food at Nordre Ekre is great, the place itself is brilliant and the hosts are wonderful. I'd recommend this place to anyone, and I'll be visiting again too.

Room Tip: If you stay at the pink room like I did, you get access to a kitchen. This room is also fitted with a bathroom, but I don't know if all the other rooms are. You should ask the hosts!

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, we highly appreciate your feedback.
For those who wonder if there are bathrooms in every room: There is, however one of our rooms, “the attic” in a 18th century storehouse, has got a private bathroom in the open air hallway. This hallway is typical for these old storehouses. The rest has got ensuite bathrooms.

Amazing place in Heidal, Norway. Well-kept traditional wooden buildings, hospitable owners and amazing food. Even has a small store, selling local products including their own jam in different varieties.

Room Tip: above the store

It is rare that my husband and I stay at a hotel and cannot find fault with something but that is the case with Nordre Ekre Farm. After staying here we wished we had booked other farm hotels. Everything about our stay was excellent. We chose Nordre Ekre because we wanted to be in a convenient location for the start of the Besseggen Ridge hike (the location is ideal). Everything has been beautifully designed and carefully maintained in this centuries old farm. The room was spacious with its own bathroom and high quality linens and facilities. The dining room in the main farmhouse, with its open fireplace, was a perfect setting for the amazing gourmet food that our hosts (and trained chefs), Øyvind & Marit, made for us. Breakfast and dinner were an culinary joy. Øyvind & Marit ensure that every aspect of a stay at their home is perfect.
There is nothing that we can find fault with. The only problem is that we had such a wonderful experience at Nordre Ekre that we were disappointed by every hotel we went to after that!!

My only regret is that we arrived in the evening, left the next morning, and didn't have more time to explore! It was so amazing to stay in a centuries-old farm building in such a beautiful location. And the food was excellent!
