Stayed two nights at General Hotell and liked it a lot! The rooms are very clean and quite spacious. The breakfast buffet had everything you can ask for in a typical Norwegian breakfast and the lunch and the dinner sereved at the hotel + the Italian pizza at Pizzeria Generale were also very tasteful. This is the perfect hotel for conferences and stop overs if you`re doing a road trip in Norway.

The parking is free. The breakfast is good. STaff helpful and nice. Very clean and comfy. It is located on an old military base so a little out of the way but so quiet. You need a car. The sink in the bathroom was so tiny and hard to use.

Nice hotel located just a few minutes drive from the town center. This is good value for your money! Staff is helpful and friendly, rooms are tasteful and clean!
Located in a quiet area, ideal for taking a walk, or if you are travelling with your family make sure to visit the swimming facility just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel.
Hotel also has a very good Italian restaurant!

On arrival a member of staff was outside to welcome us & carry our luggage. The room was large and comfortable with an enormous (!) en-suite shower room, complete with some disability aids, (there is also, a wheelchair platform lift from ground to 1st. floor). The free satisfactory Breakfast was served in the restaurant. For special mention, must be their in-house superb Pizza Restaurant where, all Pizza's are hand made, to accommodate individual choice by their talented Polish Chef who, has worked in the U.K. & Ireland - so speaks excellent English. We stayed at the GeneralHotell on two occasions and would recommend this Hotel, especially to those travelling from Oslo to Bergen. Do not be put of by photo's of the exterior, it is situated within a very spacious 'Trading Estate' created from a former Army Base - hence the title of this Hotel - 'GENERAL', I salute the general manager & staff for providing a friendly welcome, beyond the call of duty!
