“Nice weekend in the Lillehammer area”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

A nice hotel with clean, big rooms and a cosy restaurant/breakfast room. We were there out of season, but the wonderful autumn colors and the very nice and helpful staff compensated for the lack of activities. Anyway we came there to rest and enjoy Lillehammer, Maihaugen and Hunderfossen Family Park, and it was nice to get back to calm countryside environment with the possibility to see movies, relax in front of the open fires and sit in the bar(for grownups) The playroom for children was very popular, and the food tasty, but we would have liked more choices for the dinner buffet and a bigger variety of bread. I missed white bread at the breakfast. But we got crisp, warm bacon and perfect choice of drinks, milks etc. I went there with my daughter, who loved the park, the hotel and the city of Lillehammer. Most of all we enjoyed the train trips, both from Oslo and back and the short trip to Lillehammer and back. Going by train gave us discount for the room, and also a nice opportunity to get oriented on foot in a new place. Wonderful nature walks:)

Room Tip: First floor was very good,

Very nice staff. Clean rooms with no frills. OK but no-bacon breakfast. Very nice environment.
The Vegmuseeum is well worth Your time annd well appointed for children. -Free admittance! Also You find a "Feriesenter" , an entertainmentpark centered on trolls. Expensive!
The place i ideal for a stop between Trondheim and Oslo

Room Tip: Very different views. Ask when You arriwe

We stayed at this hotel because we were visiting Hunderfossen Park with our son.
All in all, we enjoyed the location of the hotel, we enjoyed the friendly staff and we enjoyed the hotel activities for children.
But, we did not enjoy the quality of the room and the quality of the food. Especially for the price we paid (NOK 2000+ per night), we expected more.

The location of the hotel was great. Lots of green around it and very close to the park itself. Just a short walk along a nice path.
The reception staff was great - I would give them top score. Always smiling and very helpful. The common areas of the hotel were nice, with lots of space for both children and adults. A section with a big Lego-table got a big thumbs up from our five-year old. Also, there was a separate room next to the reception set up as a movie room for kids. Not very fancy, but a nice touch and popular with children of various ages.
Our room was supposed to be a family room, but I found it to be small (compared to other family rooms at other hotels). The extra bed was squeezed in by the double-bed and there was not much room for anything else. For the price and the term "family room", we were expecting a more spacious room with a more solid second bed.
The breakfast buffet was not very good. Limited choices and quite boring.
For dinner, the hotel only offers what they call a buffet. We took one look and went to another hotel nearby to eat!!!!
Next time we are in the area, we will try one of the other hotels (a bit further from the park) instead.

Room Tip: Ask for size and details of rooms when booking, so you do not get overcharged for small room!

The hotel is built in a beautiful retro-style that feels very genuine and Norwegian, it's quite new and very well maintained. A very nice place to stay with your family if you're here to visit the Hunderfossen park. Outdoor playground, indoor playroom and organized activities for the children in the evening, i.e. cinema, visit from Buldre the Troll etc. Our family room was spacious and clean with plenty of room for the double bed, a sofa and a baby crib. No in-room minibar or refrigerator. The train track runs very close to the hotel, so if you're a light sleeper you might wake up at 5 am in the morning. Apart from that the hotel feels quiet. Reasonably priced dinner buffet with a limited selection of high quality food. Breakfast buffet is also good, although pretty standard, but where's the bacon? Free Wi-Fi (for 32 hours). Very friendly staff. The hotel has a bar, but the staff is not very knowledgeable (I was offered a cognac when I asked for a whisky). The beer selection is incredibly limited: the entire selection is one (1!) bland pilsener from a mediocre industrial brewery, not a single beer from any of the world class Norwegian micro breweries.

We went 11 friends to enjoy the weekend in Hafjell Alpinsenter. Free bus from the hall almost everyhour (but check as between 9,30 and 11,05 there is none) The resort holds the hotel, and several cabins and facilities in the surroundings (mini golf, Kids area and so on). Booking the cabin, free facilities: Sauna included!! Enjoy it! it is a really nice place with fantastic staff !! but I missed a couple of things in my cabin: Toaster, and a bigger kitchen!

We stayed here as part of a Fam trip, so the location was great, right beside the Ice Hotel, in which we stayed, the Bobsleigh, skidoo driving and the Winter park, the hotel photos are not representative as the Hotel has been refurbed. The inductrial look has been lost and warm colours used to help the ambiance. Breakfast & Dinner was good, but with little choice. Staff are very pleasant & do try to assist with every enquiry.
The rooms are cosy but a little basic, but very clean. There is a sauna & bar but little else. You are there for the activities and the proximity to Lillehammer not to spend all your time in the Hotel.
I would recommend highly & the Ice Hotel- which was an experience-sleeping in a bedroom at minus 4 degrees!

This is not a bad little hotel, though you'd have to need to be here for a reason, for example the 'Familiepark' or the bobsleigh track, for which it's very convenient. My room was small but comfortable and clean. The view from the window was snow covered forest, which was very picturesque.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food I had was pretty good although I went around Christmas and we had Christmas buffet which was nice and varied. Free coffee in the foyer was nice in the cold too!

It's about 13Km from Lillehammer
