I`ve spent a hiking weekend in Geilo surrounding and slept in Bardola hotel 2 nights. Hotel is older but with an atmosphere, wide offer for breakfast and tea/coffee available during whole day at lobby.

We lived in a traditional norwegian timber cabin, just across the tennis courts, behind the hotel. We have no complaints, and enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed using the fireplace, and also preparing our own meals. The cabin was a standard timber cabin of decent standard. Two floors, two toilets and about 10 beds, so a group of friends should have... More

Hotel is very traditional a bit in the outskirt of Geilo. Walking distance to the centre around 10 minutes. When you get there by train they pick you up and bring you to the hotel. City is very small and quiet. Very good for skiing and hicking. Besides this for a travelling stop one night is quite enough. Rooms are... More

Great hotel, fantastic breakfasts lovely cafe for evening meals. Great pool and rooms. Such a fab place to stay. We loved that you could ski and ski out from the top of the mountain to the hotel. We stayed at Easter - loads going on for children, couldn't recommend it more highly.

We stayed at one of the wooden lodges. Quite spacious with two bathrooms, open kitchen and a well functioning woodstove. The cabins are situated at the backside of the Bardola hotel and are quiet but do not offer a great view (parking and tennis area). The surroundings are quiet and you can easily reach thecentre of Geilo by foot. The... More

Large hotel for the mass tourism. They cater hordes of coaching groups. That gives congestion during breakfast. Furniture and rooms are out of date, early 1980 style. No fridge, but free wifi. Bed is 80 cm wide. Swimming pool, sauna and gym are good. Location is far from village center. This hotel is suitable for the winter sport. They do... More

I LOVED this hotel!!!!!!! After many nights in super-small European hotel rooms, this was a pleasant surprise! The entire far wall was windows and we had a good-sized balcony with a beautiful view. Granted, the décor was a little 1980s-ish, but it was very spacious and had a unique charm. The breakfasts were great and smorgasbord dinner was interesting. Loved... More

I like that the heater was inside the bathroom! No more cold bathroom especially after a shower! There's only a heater in the room & no aircon but likely it was very cold outside so it was nice Hotel is filled with old vintage furniture which made it charming. It's in a remote town hence there were nothing much to... More

Our tour bus stopped here for lunch. Old chalet style hotel, no doubt popular with the skiers in the wintertime. We had a lovely buffet lunch with lots of selection. Good food; good service. clean bathrooms.
