“Good hotel - fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Stayed for 5 nights. 3 friends sharing a suite. Room was fine for our requirements but the amazing part of our stay was the quality of our set three course dinner each night. Each course produced by the Latvian chef was a delight both on the eyes and the pallet. In addition the waiters and reception staff were charming - always helpful and obliging. Amazingly our bill ended up at just over £100 per person per night which included half board and a bottle of wine each night. The public areas - particularly the lounge and reception area are really nicely furnished with lots of lovely seating areas to relax in. The only negative point I would make is that the tiles in the beautiful pool and hot tub area were extremely slippery when wet.

A hotel with lovely design and central location. Something unfinished in the rooms, but the staff was quick to fix up the deficiencies. It goes free skibus from the hotel. It could have been a little bigger selection for breakfast, but it tasted good. The food in the restaurant tasted great! Bathingresort was also good. Excellent for those with small children. I will come back to this Hotel!

Stayed here for a week in association with a yearly trip to Geilo which my company arranges.
Unortunatley it did not live up to its name.

When first entering the reception area it gives a feeling of luxury. The hotel reception area looks rather nice and so does the bar area, it has obviously been put a lot of money into this, in order to make it stylish and modern.

Unfortunatley this is just a fasade, the hotel prentends to be something it is not. It seems like a top class hotel, but unfortunatley they are far from it. The reason for this is the unwelcoming staff (they seemed often cranky/tired of their job). The food was terrible, way off standard. The stake's was overcooked (and ruined), the fish was destroyed and the choclate mousse was turned into choclate sauce...unfortunatley the breakast was not even close to match the impression the hotel puts on.

The rooms is average, and quite okay. Anyways, this is not the place you will be spending the most amount of time.

A final tip would be; It is now use spending a lot of money on appereance when the kitchen and the staff is far away from matching it.

Booked with Crystal ski. The hotel was brilliant. Location perfect for going on the xcountry trails. Near to the town centre for getting ski hire and shopping. Pool / sauna were great. Staff made us most welcome and very much at home. Food great - after a day skiing we were never left hungry.

Top hotel just undergone refurbishment. Right in the heart of Geilo with pool, jacuzzi and sauna, and fantastic lounge. Great heated storage lockers for ski kit ( dry, warm gloves and boots each day). Three minute walk from Nordic trails, about ten to ski lifts, ski bus stops outside hotel. Loved our stay, will go again next year !!

This is a very good hotel with excellent service. Good rooms and very good food. The lobby is a very cosy place and this is with no doubt a hotel you will feel at home in.
Check also out Dr.Holms hotel at Geilo, a valid competitor.

Room Tip: Choose a room not facing the main street.

Had a very pleasant stay at Highland this weekend. The staff is extremely service minded and make the best effert to make the stay comfortable.

I like the reception area especially good, as this clearly is newly renovated.

Try the restaurant! The food is amazing!! Local food prepared in the best way!

If you want a genuine Norwegian mountain experience, stay at Geilo and Highland!
