Charming hotel facing the water. Nice and clean rooms, even if the hotel is not brand new. The hotel is a nice basecamp for fantastic nature experiences in the surrounding area. Very good breakfast buffet and also an amazing all you can eat dinner buffet every night. In the peak season you should book in advance to be sure to...

We stayed one night at this hotel. The room was neat and tidy, somewhat basic, but all you needed for a place to kip. The hotel had a decent laundry so washing travel clothes was a simple affair and not very expensive. We ate in the restaurant that night. Our waitress was super helpful, knew her stuff and the menu...

We were there on Sept 11, 2016 to stay a night and had dinner at the buffet. When we arrived the restaurant, we were being taken to the back area where the lights were dark. Our tour guide thought it was just being turned off, so he told us to grab some food first. He will ask the staff to...

Hello Wsyng, Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay. I`m sorry to hear that you didn`t feel welcome in the restaurant. We had some electrical issues this evening, and some Groups arriving in late. But that is no excuse for the staff to be rude. On behalf of the hotel, I apologize for this.

Thon Hotel Jolster is situated by the Jolster lake. The surroundings and the view from the front balcony-rooms are beautiful. But I am sorry to say that what is inside this hotel is of lesser quality. We upgraded to a room with a balcony. It was rather narrow. In front of the balcony there was litter enough to take away...

This looked from TripAdvisor reports as a likely stop during our driving tour of Norway. A convenient stop. The location looked great and it was in a glorious position. However what we did not know that this is a stop for coach operators. Hence the hotel was full of back packers who were given better treatment than the casual tourists....

The housekeeper entered our room without even knocking every single day of our stay. My husband asked at the front door when the bar would be closing, and he got a straight "i dont know" as an answer. The guy insisted he could not say for sure and didnt help us at all.

This hotel is dated in the lobby area. The rooms are small and there are no refrigerators. No A/C so if it's warm out, you'll suffer. Lots of large groups so the buffet meals, which include breakfast and dinner, are crowded. The food doesn't change from day to day so if you are here for more than one night, I...
