    I was there for the winter holiday at this great location. The staff is friendly, although the hotel itself is very 70's and need upgrading as others have pointed out. The room was ok, and the tiny bathroom was refurbished to modern standards. We were disappointed about the pool area, the water was plainly filthy and opaque and too cold as well. My daughter didn't even want to swim there, and she really loves water. All in all so far I would rate this 3, if not for the grossly overpriced dinner. 450 kr for the 3 course menu, and half that for the kinder 'buffet' which was hot dogs, chips and schnitzel one day, and lasagne, chips and something assumed to be hamburger the other day. 225 kr for 'all that'. The adult menu was good enough, but the servings were so small I had to fill up with chips from the 'buffet'. What a rip-off! Apart from that we had a nice stay here.

    Stayed: March 2014

    Good skifacility, fantastic scenery, helpfull staff, good food and a nice room.
    In the evening we enjoyed the swimming pool and sauna.
    This is a good 4 star resort. We spent 3 nights here and had a good time.

    We choosed Gaustablikk in the first Place because of its skiingfacilities but were very pleasantly suprised by the Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell. We spent two Nights at the hotel in a double room. The room - as the rest of the hotel, was very clean and had everything we needed, including a great view at Mount Gaustatoppen. From arrival to departure, we experienced a warm and welcoming service and atmosphere. The hotel, built in 1970, has not lost its charm and cosy style but rather developed into a Perfect place to let the shoulders down and feel like home. Everyone, from the receptionist, to the roommaids and chefs, were friendly and observant. We had breakfast and dinner in the restaurant and found both meals excellent. The breakfast buffet was very well assorted with everything on it. In the evening, we had a buffet the first night and three course meal the second, served by a very friendly waiter. We asked for extra sauce ( it tasted so good ), which was no problem. We like good Food and were not let down at Gaustablikk, it was fresh and had good compositions and variety. After dinner, we went to the bar and was served excellent by a swedish waiter. The bar invites for good conversations and is located close to the lobby and fireplaces. The hotel has a pool with damp sauna and whirlpool. The area is spacious and we relaxed there after a long day at the slopes. We live a busy life in the city, so visiting Gaustablikk, was just what we needed - a little break in the Mountains. We highly reccomend this hotel and we will for certain visit again.

    Room Tip: Ask for a room with view to the mount Gaustatoppen.

    Many thanks for a fantastic stay at your beautiful hotel.
    We are both very impressed by the standard offered on dining and scenery.
    A very acomodating staff throughout our stay made our visit even more enjoyable.
    From the receptionist to the restaurant staff - all of them went out of their way to ensure that we as customers had a pleasant stay. Impressed. Like coming home ...
    The enthusiastic cooks also had prepared an amazingly varied menu . I.e wild game, sea food etc.
    Wine list had also apparantly been carefully chosen

    Scenery is fantastic and we con only Imagine how nice it must be when the winter season arrives with all those skiing oportunities in the area .

    Tip: A hiking tour to the Gaustatoppen peak 1880 mtr above sea level ( 2 hours - walk) is a must do. On a clear day you see 'half' of Norway's mountain areas .

    Rooms are decent standard and beds/bathroom are very good and clean.

    Summarazed. Good value for money , we'll definetly be back.



    Kan bare tenke oss hvor fint det må være når snøen er kommet.

    Vi kommer gjerne tilbake -det er sikkert

    Room Tip: Ask for room with mountain view.

    I have to admit up front that we didn't stay here. We stopped to see what it was like, to get a couple of drinks, to use the WCs, and to look into stopping the next day for breakfast. For a supposedly 5-star accommodation, we were less than fully impressed. I used to work in the hotel industry, and I learned that you can tell a lot about a hotel from its common areas. We learned that these people seem lack pride and professionalism.
    The lobby itself was attractive and quiet. That was the high point. The trash in the ladies room was overflowing onto the floor. Lacking a sudden, simultaneous arrival of six tour buses, I can think of no excuse for letting trash get to that point. The mens room smelled like a kennel - I'm not exaggerating, I've worked in kennels. Again, no excuse.
    The desk clerk was pleasant, but his duties, with no apparent assistance, included manning the front desk, manning the adjacent kiosk, taking restaurant reservations, and bussing lobby tables for dishes and glasses. He did a nice job trying to keep up, but people were waiting at three places, when a true 5-star facility would not have tolerated such inconvenience to guests. At least two people were needed for the tasks he was performing.
    We had our drinks on the deck looking out over a beautiful vista, and the dining room looked nice enough that we made reservations for breakfast rather than go for a less convenient alternative. That paid off, except for one rude server (Reviewed separately).
    Typically, we aren't really all that picky. However, when you advertise a 5-star rating, you need to live up to it, and it's the little things that count.
    We've both seen better, and we wouldn't bother going back.

    Room Tip: Sorry, we can't help.
