My wife and I spent just one night at this hotel. It was the seventh leg of a self-arranged fly drive tour of southern and mid-Norway. The hotel is conveniently situated a few kilometres from the main road leading from Dombas to Lillehammer and Oslo. It is surrounded by pastures on low hills, with a scattering of homes, farms and a couple of cafes. Check-in was very friendly and we were made to feel most welcome. There is ample parking to the front of the hotel and it was just a short distance at ground level to transfer our luggage to our room. There were attractive wall hangings and artefacts in the public areas. Our room had a sumptuous view from its large window and there was plenty of natural light. The room was rather spartan but sparklingly clean, reasonably spacious and comfortably furnished with everything in a bare pine, country style. There was a double wardrobe for hanging clothes as well as a further single one with shelves. As well as two comfortable chairs and a low table, the room contained a further table with a chair and two bedside cabinets. There was neither TV nor anything to make a drink in the room (neither were there complimentary coffee or tea available in reception). The bathroom was sensibly proportioned with a walk in shower. The floor in the shower area was slightly sunken helping to prevent the rest of the bathroom becoming wet underfoot. Water pressure was reasonably powerful and there was ample hot water. Our room had two single beds pushed together. Mattresses were reasonably supportive without being too soft so we slept quite well. The curtains were thick enough to make the room sufficiently dark for sleeping. We found that the wooden building allowed sound to travel easily – we could hear people walking around in the room above ours. The tile floors in the corridor also meant that we could hear every movement (and the loud conversations of inconsiderate guests) from our room. The wi-fi was rather weak in our room.
The hotel offers a three course set dinner which is served at 6.30 pm. It was in a very attractive room with beautiful views to be had in all directions. On the night of our stay, the creamy asparagus soup was delicious and augured well for an interesting culinary experience. The main course was rare roast beef with a peppercorn sauce. There were roasted potatoes with olives and broccoli. This was odd as much of our broccoli florets were green and yellow whereas other diners, we noted, had purely green florets! Dessert was disappointing - half a pear with cream and a chocolate sauce. So, the meal became less appealing with each subsequent course. It was partly redeemed by the provision of coffee and home-made syrup cake served in the bar after the meal. At 320 NKr we thought it was dear for a rather modest dinner.
The buffet breakfast was basic with the usual selection of sliced meats, cheeses and pate. Muesli and a couple of other cereals were available as well as two types of yoghurt. Boiled eggs and porridge were the hot options. There was a wide range of breads and jams and some fresh fruit (sliced apples, bananas and oranges). Packed lunches could be made up from the buffet at additional cost.
The setting of this hotel and its proximity to the main road were the main attractions for our short stay. A longer visit would have opened up the opportunity to explore the beautiful countryside – the reason for most of the other guests I suspect. If the dinner had been better it would have been possible to give a higher rating.

Room tip: Likely that upper floor rooms are quieter - suggest a room at the end of the corridor for same reason

So pleased I decided to return to Oigardseter and all went to plan with the owner waiting at Otta railway station to whisk me up the road to the fjellstue. The ride was very cost effective as we gave a lift to two Swiss and two Germans who had not made any attempt to organise their uplift to Hoveringen. Unusual given the normal traits of both nations. The welcome was warm and inviting and the owners were very pleased to see me back. Although the hotel had only opened for the season the day before I arrived everything was working perfectly. Great for families and the food was of great variety and quantity. Location is great and the grandeur of the mountains adds to the splendour. You really get the feeling of being in the wild. Skiing was excellent with an extensive network of linked trails. This was a training trip prior to undertaking a traverse of Hardangervidda in March. those overnight stays and meals will be very different. I was so pleased with the visit that I will return again next year. For first timers dont be out off with the distance from Oslo. Great railway system connects well with the airport and its good value and easy to use.

This hotel has rooms which are a bit out-dated, but nice and clean. Our room was spacious. The drive up to the hotel from the main road (E6) is almost worth the trip alone and the surroundings are perfect. The staff is really friendly and helpful. Please note that if you want dinner the only option is a three course dinner served at 18.30.

Stayed at the hotel for mountain biking. The hotel from the 50s, and some interior trim and furniture is a bit faded. The older parts, and the timber lodge sitting room is filled with antiqe furniture. Great atmosphere.

I stayed with full pension, and the meals where great, traditional Norwegian food.

We have used Øigardseter for our winter holidays since 1975 and we still want come back for many years! The ambience is friendly and relaxing and the food excellent.

Situated close to Rondane National Park with good tracks for skiing, it is the perfect place for people loving cross country. Rondane is perfect for everyone enjoying the feeling “It’s marvelous, it’s only me and the mountains!”
