Unfortunately we only stayed 1 night here, if we were ever in norway again we would make this our longest stop. The hotel itself is fabulous and well worth the extra we paid for any other in norway. We booked a standard double room and are not sure if we were upgraded as the room was superb - very spacious and split into 2 sections, a bed area and a seating area. There was a big flat panel TV built into the wall between the 2 sections and it rotated round. The whole room was very tastefully furninshed, clean and had a luxurious feel. The bathroom was the same with high quality looking fittings, although if there was one gripe it would be that the shower attachment on the bath had no high-level holder, so it was difficult to use it as a shower as there was nothing to hang it on. The room had a stunning view out over the fjord (which must be one of the most beautiful places on earth) and didn't suffer from the heat problems of other locations. The location of Geiranger itself is breathtaking and really is a must see for any visit. We took the evening buffet dinner and although not cheap the selection and quality of food was excellent and very much worth the money. The included breakfast buffet was the same, a great selection including plenty of choices for the non-continental european eater (i.e. more than just cold meats, cheeses and fish) - you'll make up the difference in cost with how much you'll eat. Once nice touch was a sliding screen beside the bath, which meant you could soak in the bath while looking out onto the fjord - excellent!
