Ustedalen Hotel

Reviewed 22 August 2014

We have stayed here several times and absolutely love this hotel!! The staff are friendly and helpful and the setting couldn't be more idyllic. The rooms are cosy and comfy the views from some rooms are fantastic, they all have large windows that let in plenty of light (I spend most of the night watching the fabulous view!!) the lounge area has a beautiful roaring fire and the swimming pool is lovely and warm.
The food is great, the buffet has plenty to choose from for children and adults.
Stay in this hotel and you will return over and over!!!

Stayed overnight in Geilo, it's a great stopover. The hotel is not fantastic, but it's clean, comfortable and cozy. In other words, it does the trick - and there are musical numbers at the bar after dinner!

On the positive side: very nice staff. Service is rated only average because the hotel shuttle car is not much at guests disposel but for transport to and from the rail station.
Nice small indoor pool for childrens play or just relaxing.
Not so positive: This is a two to three star hotel with no upgrade since the seventies. Poor and simple interior. Average food. A bit outside ( 10 to 15 minutes walk ) the village centre.
Be aware for the rest of 2014. A lot of building activity is ongoing creating a mess outside. Unfortunately it is not the rooms or resting/restaurant areas being refurbished, it will be buildt flats and superior rooms.
I have now staye through the last years on all hotels and other cheaper lodges at Geilo. This is definately my last hotel choice. For a great mountain experience, choose another one.

Room Tip: Not facing the street. Not so much traffic there, but other side has a nice mountain view. Try not t...

Well built and run place, which they're extending (but not in an intrusive way).

They'll run you to the train station if you ask. Good food, log fire, small sauna and swimming pool (tends to be fairly overrun with kids, but it was half term when we went). Helpful and pleasant staff, and lovely views from the rooms (ask for one with a view).

Bit noisy from kids running up and down our corridor, but we put our earplugs in and coped.

Stayed here for 5 nights in February. Very eassy to get about Geilo. Downhill slopoes walkable behind hotel. Also easy to walk to cross country tracks.
Nice buffy breakfast and evening meals. Small swimming pool. Lovely views from bedroom,lounge and dining room. Bedroom a little basic but very clean and cosy!

Excellent stay for three nights.breakfast and dinner good choice. Room a little tired but didn't cost the earth. The new apartments look superb.a little out of the town but the ski bus stops and the hotel will run you around on request,altogether very good.

Great hotel on the outskirts of Geilo, very friendly staff who strangely for somewhere like this remain the same year after year. Superb food and the views from the lounge and and south facing bedrooms are amazing.

Room Tip: Ask for the view of the lake
