“Set right next to the mountain”
Reviewed 4 May 2009

I stayed here with my husband and my 7 year old son. We arrived late in the day, so we called the hotel in advance to explain we were on our way. When arrived, although they stopped serving dinner at 9pm, thet said it was'nt a problem we have dinner for you. Very grateful as we were pretty tired and hungry! We had a self contained lodge-like room, which was linked to the hotel but we could park outside and there was a door at the front of our room also. The view was stunning, you could see across the valley...so pretty. Our room was all wooden walls and very cosy, our son had his own room, which he loved. The main bedroom was set aside from the lounge area and private with curtains, but no door. Lots of room for all our snow gear! A fridge, whirlpool bath, very nice after aches on the slopes. We had friendly norwegian neighbours, always said hello to us! The food at breakfast time was varied, eggs and bacon etc, lots of cold meats, some cereal and pancakes, very filling! always running out of orange juice though! staff friendly. Lunchtime we really looked forward to, buffet style lots of pasta, meats, salads etc, best part of the day. dinner menu limited, not sure if you did'nt like something what there was as an alternative. I felt hungry sometimes leaving there. Lunch and dinner had a small selection of childrens food. Very expensive drinks, I think that's normal generally in norway though. The location of the hotel was great, they gave us ski passes gratis one day. It's a ten minute walk or 5 minute ski to the lifts. They also have a lovely spa. They offered night time entertainment, but we were too tired to go back after dinner. Would definately go back again. As with ski-ing, boarding etc...we were beginners anyway, but looked as though they had some fab runs on the slope, great ski area for children too. plenty of hire places aswell

I spent 3 nights at the Thon hotel Skeikampen. The hotel lies on the foot of Skeikampen, which on a clear day must be a great scene (it was foggy and cloudy during my stay).

To summarise:
Best: location with regards to skiing.
Worst: the room, and the price/value ratio (I didn't pay for my stay).

The service at the reception was not the best I've experienced, partly because of the mood of the receptionist and partly because of the small language barrier (most of the staff was Danish and Swedish).

The room was the worst part of the stay. Although spacious and with a nice view over the underlying valley, the floor was carpeted, the bed was average and all electronic equipment was as taken out of the mid-90's (TV and telephone, the hotel has WLAN via Telenor, but that costs...). The bathroom was, like my girlfriend said, like a cheap London hotel. Not exactly dirty, but more old and cheap... we had a small bathtub with a shower head that most of all wanted to spin 'round and 'round.

We had all meals included, and beside of the location, that was the best part of the trip. OK breakfast with several traditional Norwegian dishes. The lunch buffet was nice, the same was the dinners.

The hotel has a little spa-department with 2 jacuzzis, 2 different saunas and a cold water pit. This is free of charge for the hotel guests. You can also buy different spa treatments, but it seems you'll have to order in advance to be sure the list is not filled.

As mentioned, the hotel has a good location for alpine skiing, and a great location for cross country skiing. The alpine part is what I would call a ski-in (not ski-out), because you'll have to ski 300-400 meters to get to the main lift and to buy a ski pass (they don't sell ski passes at the hotel!), this little ski trip is OK if you're an over average cross country skier using slalom skis, but be prepared to break a sweat.

The cross country track is 5 meters from the hotel entrance! Absolutely great!
