Highly recommend this charming historic hotel
A magical experience - like stepping back in time. Excellent in every way...from pleasant and efficient check in to superb meal with white glove service, amusing story telling, and phenomenal views. We took the MS Henrik Ibsen up the Telemark Canal which added charm to the entire experience. The staff was attentive, cheerful, and pleasant. The rooms and decor were a throw back to kinder more gentile times where class and elegance were so very important. The pace was slow...everyone's shoulders fell as they relaxed in an atmosphere devoid of technical distractions. And the surrounding views were phenomenal. Norwegian nature at its best. Highly recommend!

8/10 Very Good

Great hotel but must have nice room.
When we arrived we were given a terrible room with no privacy on the 1st floor when we had asked for a room with a view, not too small. We asked to be moved and were told there weren't any other rooms but my husband persisted and finally both us and our friends were upgraded to nice rooms. I would recommend this hotel but you must insist on a decent room and email them before. Other than that, our visit was very nice.

10/10 Exceptional

A gracious and elegant place. The sense of history is everywhere. Dinner in the beautiful dining room was excellent...pricey but worth the experience. Drinks by the fireplace came with very cozy chairs and a short history Le's of the place, delivered by our waiter. Scenery was fantastic. This isn't a bargain stop but for a special occasion or a splurge, well worth it.

6/10 Good

Elegance in a dim light.
This is a vintage hotel experience, and if that appeals to you, then it is a good, rather expensive hotel. But the room we stayed in was very, very small, very dimly lit, and the bathroom, while it has been modernized(or perhaps the rooms originally had no bathrooms), had nowhere to put anything, no hooks or shelves, and there was nowhere to put our luggage. The dining room was elegant, but again with very dated lighting that really didn't render it appealing. Service was very professional and efficient, and the breakfast was the best imaginable. The grounds are lovely, and there was a wonderful pianist playing in the salon after dinner. This is an elegant place, but not really to my liking.
