We spent a couple of nights at this exceptionally child-friendly hotel. Our goal for the trip was (as I assume is the case for most of the guests here) a couple of days in Hunderfossen Familiepark. The hotel organizes activities for the kids every day; games, painting classes, disco and film screening.
There’s also a “swan sea” with paddle boats and a mini golf course at the hotel premises. It’s just a short walk from the family park and an even shorter one from “Barnas Gård”, which has lots of different animals for the children to feed and pet. The hotel is also just a couple of minutes’ walk from the Hunderfossen train stop, so it’s easily accessible even if you travel without a car.
The included breakfast is a nice buffet, bonus points from the kids for including pan cakes in the breakfast as well as the dinner buffet. The dinner buffet had most of the classics and some child friendly extras. Even picky eaters will find something to enjoy here. All though the quality of the food is all right, I think it was a tad pricey.
We stayed in a family room which was just about big enough. The room was nice and clean, but a bit worn down. Definitely not classy og high-end, but it has a rustic charm to it. Nice enough to stay a couple of nights with the kids, but not the place you go if you’re trying to impress the girl of your dreams. Come to think of it, if you even consider this hotel as a good place to court a lady you’re either A) in over your head og B) exceptionally family-oriented. In case of B): I hope your chosen woman is as well. If not, see A).
And returning the point: Hunderfossen Hotel & Resort is a good choice when you’re travelling with children (and in my opinion a bad choice if you’re not). Our stay was pleasant and the kids were happy. And when they’re happy – so are we!
