Reviewed 16 March 2014

The hotel was OK, though the cleaniness of the rooms was not on top - under the bed they had not been bothered to take the dust and the mirrors and windows were filled with spots. The breakfast was good and people were friendly. Furniture and interior kind of old and very used.

Good level hotel for business travelling, basic features available, location somewhat far from centres. Nice personnel and fast services. Decoration with books excellent idea but only in norwegian, unfortunately.

The hotel was clean, but very outdated. It screams 80`s...
The food was great and the breakfast among the best I have had at hotels.
The only thing is that they need to work on their vegetarian option cause my maincourse at dinner was terrible. And I am not a picky vegetarian..

All in all a great hotel, great welcoming personel with some room for improvement regarding food (vegetarian not the rest) and interiour.

I did not pay for the room since I was there on a conference where all was covered so that is why I have no review on the value...

Very good place to hold meeting on, here are all kinds of size meeting room, good with refreshments during breaks.
Good standard of rooms.
The hotel is a bit messy to find your way in with a lot of stairs and corridors.

Hi, and thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed the conference area and rooms. Since the hotel opened in 1985, it has been expanded several times. It could probably be the reason why it is seems a bit "messy". We hope to see you again!

I have stayed 3 times in Quality hotel Olavsgaard and it is very nice place for conferences or meetings (especially during summertime). hotel is right next to highway (only negative thing about it), but definitely the hotel is older than highway, so can't blame the hotel owners. Hotel is easily accessible also by airport transfer bus, which leaves in every half an hour just in front of the arrival hall. Buscompany Nor-Way Busexpressen, line F1, stop Olavsgaard, appr 30 min, 150 NOK one way in 2013.
Hotel building looks like nice old cattle mansion. Rooms are rather small, but for conference guests big enough. Hotel offers one of the best breakfast and lunch I have ever had. There are so many options available that you could easily spent hours in buffee restaurant. And compared to many other Norwegian hotels, they offer pretty decent coffee as well - fully automated WMF machine offers full range of drinks with or without milk.
Majority of the conference rooms have windows, which is big thing, if you have to spend a full day in one room only. And they have fresh fruits, cakes, popcorn and soft ice available for conference guests. Wi-fi is free of charge for their customers and it works perfectly everywhere in the house. So all in all, very nice place for conferences, trainings and long meetings.
Only negative sides of the hotel come from it's location - noise from highway and the fact that there is nowhere to walk around the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the reception area are quieter, as highway is on opposite side.

Right in the middle between Oslo airport and downtown Oslo is this great conference hotel right by the highway. And, parking is free. Right next to bus station too. The restaurant has a great breakfast buffet and lunch and dinner offerings are really good. You´ll enjoy some steaks here that are of the best you ever had. I promise. So if you are throwing some event in the Oslo area, your guest will stay focused because there´s nothing else to do in this area than be at the hotel. However, that is no problem because when your program is over, the bar is one of the most cozy and beautiful modern bars I have seen in a Norwegian hotel. Comes with a baby grand piano.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the E6 highway. Ask for 2nd or 3rd floor with a view north - away from the traf...

This review is only about the restaurant.

We arrived as a party of three and asked if the restaurant was open. We were told that it was going to open in 10 minutes. After 30 minutes we were let in (we was told that the delay was because the waiters had to set up the buffe). We ordered our food (from the menu not the buffe), and while we were waiting to be served a lot of screaming and laughing people arrived. It turned out that all of them belonged to the same party and had booked all the other tables. The waiters were then busy serving them, and after another 30 minutes we asked what was happening with our food. We then got one hot portion, one intermediate and one cold portion.

This was a very bad experience. I fully understand that the other people wanted to party and have fun, but it is totaly unaceptable that to squize in other guests together wit a "closed" party without telling them in advance. Especially when the staff do not have the capacity to serve alle the guests.

Except for the cold portion, the food tasted as it should. The prizes were very high, especially drinks.

Not recommended. Stay away.

Thank you for your feedback. We are so sorry for your experience when visiting our restaurant. We totaly agree that it is unaceptable to give you table together with this group without notify or asking if this is ok for you.
Afterwards, we see that we should have closed the restaurant for other guests this evening.
We understand that you will not recommend us to others after your experience, but if there is anything we can do to correct the impression, please let us know!
