“Great location, excellent food, beautiful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

My husband and I rode the train from Oslo to Bergen and we stopped along the way in Geilo to ski. We heard the alpine skiing was good in Geilo, and we decided to take a chance on it. We didn't have reservations ahead of time, but we could see the Dr. Holms Hotel from the train station, it was within walking distance, and we hoped it had space available. What a pleasant surprise: the hotel was charming, well appointed, and historic. It had a bowling alley, a cafe, and ski rental shop down below. The cafe, as others stated, closed fairly early, so if you're hungry, don't dawdle. We missed the cafe so ate in the dining room instead and it was so much better anyway. The staff was great and helped us with lift tickets, directed us to ski rentals, etc. The dining room was gorgeous and the dinners (although pricey-hey this is Norway, right?) were delicious. Breakfast too. The rooms were very comfortable. I would stay here again.

We allways stay here when in the mountains either for skiing in winter or walking in summer.
A very nice traditional hotel with a nice spa. The pool area could need a litle bit of refurbishing but is fully functional and clean, apart from that everything is nice, the food , the rooms , the employes and a stunning view.

Ski in ski out for alpin and cross country lovers

Didn’t seem to appreciate tourists. Coachload arrived at 4.45pm so that’s time to shut the nice looking coffee lounge – wouldn’t have hurt to stay open for an extra period. No coffee making facilities in room so down to bar which didn’t open ‘til 6pm. Staff at front desk not sure where a cappuccino could be obtained. Buffet reasonable. Room small but functional. I know that we were out of season but a little more enthusiasm and catering to needs of hotel guests would go a long way.
