Reviewed 10 September 2017

Skarsnuten is a cool designhotel on the top of Hemsedal. Spectacular view and very Nice decor in the lobby, restaurant & bar. Rooms are small and nothing special. Service up and Down. Weekends in Winter very busy With afterski. Not a Place to bring Your kids in Winter weekends. Food is very up and Down, they change concept almost every year and didnt manage to deliver high quality during the years.
But to have dinner With a view like this is Worth a try.

As this hotel is part way up the mountains and excellently designed, it is a glorious treat to spend time here and enjoy the spectacular views. Our room, the restaurant, and the bar all had great scenery. The hotel and restaurant staff are really friendly and helpful, and we particularly appreciated the help of Elin on reception in arranging our shuttles to our bus and arranging a late check out. It was great to be able to rent skis on site and ski from the door. The room was lovely and quiet and also well designed, with a lovely big window, comfy couch and bed and practical bathroom with powerful shower. The breakfasts are amazing - a delightful buffet and chance for eggs cooked to order. The only slight downside is that buses don't run at night so it is tricky to get out and try different restaurants, and as pescatarians on a budget we were a bit limited by the options, but we enjoyed everything we had and in some ways didn't want to go elsewhere anyway as the atmosphere, service and views were so nice.

Have just returned from an excellent holiday at the Skarsnuten Hotel in Hemsedal Norway . Firstly I would like to say that the customer service is excellent , all the staff were friendly and very helpful , nothing was too much trouble . The facilities are amazing too . The food was fantastic , plenty too eat at breakfast , cooked to order omelettes and lots of choice . We were on half board so had a set menu in the evening but this was amazing too , 3 courses and if you were unsure about it , they would try to find an alternative . The hotel has spectacular views and the afterski is good , they make amazing gin cocktails . You can ski out from the hotel and it's served by its own lift so easy to get back to . The rooms are comfortable and quite spacious so plenty of room for all your ski gear . They have there own ski shop at the hotel , but it is small so don't have masses of stock and a tiny boot room . Overall a fab place to stay and can't wait to come back .

We visited Hemsedal for our annual skiing holiday. We stayed at the Skarsnuten for 6 days! We were 1000 metres above the resort in a modern lodge style building. Staff were all very helpful, wifi worked, the views were fantastic, you can ski in/out and the restaurant serves great food. The downside: infrequent transportation to and from town, rooms functional but could offer more privacy- windows to the carpark entirely exposed, ski-room needs sone heating as boors were dump each morning. We thought that a shuttle service would be major improvement and some more activities offered other than massage. We were also surprised by the lack of a steam room. On balance price was fair.

We are in Hemsedal for the first time and found this beautiful hotel at the top of Skarsnuten. The restaurant with pooltable is an experience for many reasons. Great "fika", service, atmosphere and the view from the terrace. We will be back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Skarsnuten Hotel, at 1000 m.s.l, has a magnificent view to mighty mountain Hemsedal. Skarsnuten is a design hotel, where nature plays a prominent part of the architecture. Large glass surfaces virtually let nature right into the buildings. Extensive use of glass, stone and slated stone in the lobby, bar and restaurant, plus modern steel constructions, contributes to the typical Scandivian touch of this quite new hotel. ... more   less
