This is the third time I'm staying here for a seminar. The location is beautiful, located about 1 hour south of Oslo, right on the fjord. The surrounding area is excellent for excercise, like jogging, swimming or just walking. The scenery is wonderful and relaxing.
The rooms are OK but nothing above what is to be expected. Some minor details should be pointed out - two out of three lightbulbs in the bathroom were blown when I checked in, and as noone from the sevice dept was on the premesis the recepton said there was nothing to be done that day. Definately not satisfactory.
But, that being said the receptionists were friendly.
As have been mentioned by other posts, the hotel sometimes tend to attract partying people, so I you aim for a relaxing spa weekend, you may have your relaxation and sleep smewhat disturbed by partying people.
My room faced the entrance area, and I had to close the window to be able to sleep.
The food was good, but again, nothing above what should be expected.
All in all, I recomend a stay here, and especially if you manage to avoid the partygoers.
