We only stayed one night here before travelling home but having eaten in the restaurant we wished we'd has more nights here. The hotel was really comfortable, the room we had was spacious and had a huge bed. The public areas are very stylish and offers complimentary hit drinks at all times, a really nice touch. Where this hotel really scores high is with the food. The buffet offerings at breakfast and lunch are spectacular and I've rarely seen such a wide variety with such attention to quality - totally amazing. Added to the was the wonderful meal we had in the restaurant. We shared a basket of bread , oil, salt and balsamic vinegar ( we were offered more when the basket was empty). My starter consisted of green bean soup with coriander dressed with olive oil and balsamic glaze while my husband had aquavit cured salmon with butter fried bread, salad and horseradish cream. Both starters were really tasty. We'd been advised by a waiter in Southern Norway that the further North we travelled the better the Reindeer became so we decided to test it out. It was easily the softest and most delicate meat we had in Norway. We had pan fried reindeer with potato purée , roast root veg and a red wine sauce, it was absolutely wonderful and my other half joked he'd rather have the reindeer again that desert but we decided on a white chocolate and sambuca mousse with raspberry compote and chocolate sauce. As farewell meals go it was a marvellous way to bid Norway goodbye.
