“good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We like this hotel because of friendly staff, cleaness, quiet area. We stay here on our way to from Norway to Stogholm and do not expect any cool views or intertaments. Hotel has nice italian restaurant.

Awesome place! Really relaxing quiet surroundings. Ideal for a walk or to enjoy the lovely sunshine while lying on the grass fields surrounding this place. Hotel itself looks awesome. Lots of attention for detail. Spotless clean. Decent quite large sized rooms. Looks brand new even though the hotel already exists for 10 years! Included free breakfast offers enough choice and is of really good quality. Parking can be done for free and only 50 meters walking away from the entrance. WiFi is free and offers awesome speeds. Flawless Skype, Netflix, YouTube, etc. Pizzas are sold from 119 NOK and up. There's nothing else around, so go here to enjoy the silence or don't go here. We had no problems whatsoever finding this place. Don't try to navigate for the street as it doesn't exist on most navigation systems. Instead navigate using Waze on your phone. Use Google Places in Waze to look for the General Hotell and it will take you right in front of the door. Other option, navigate to these cooridnates: N60 6' 42", E10 13' 44" Great value for money!

Room Tip: Rooms on the same side as the entrance can get pretty hot as there's direct sunlight on them the...

My organisation planned a meeting here. We booked the restaurant in advance, but could not give exact number of people. As the day of our arrangement was coming close - it turned out to be hadrly no people attending our meeting! We had to canseo our booking. The hotel was very friendly, and we had no extra charge! so: DON'T BE AFRAID TO PLACE YOUR ARRANGEMENTS HERE. YOU WILL BE WELL ATTENDED FOR! And I've heard the food is good also!

A comfortable 3 star hotel located in what used to be a Norwegian army camp. The hotel building was totally renovated and rebuilt and is located near Honefoss in lovely rural surroundings on a river. Rooms are fair sized, comfortable beds, smallish bathroom with a shower, sparsely but pleasantly furnished. Delicious breakfast served in an intimate dining room. Staff very friendly and more than willing to assist with all queries and needs. Suitable for a weekend getaway in pastoral surroundings.

Room Tip: All rooms quiet as hotel is located in a pastoral area with very little noise.

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.
