    Perfect location for us, next to station, also for the town. Very good breakfast, friendly amd helpful staff.

    Window-blind broken, could neither be closed nor opened. Dirty window, inadequate curtains for summer. (room too light) Small room.

    The hotel is situated in the City Center, with easy parking. The bed was fairly comfortable and the room was nice and clean.

    There wasn't a lot about this hotel to praise. It was summer and Lillehammer is probably at its best in winter but this hotel needs a serious makeover anyway the best thing is the location in the centre of town but still only about 1 minutes drive from the main E6 road.

    Plenty to dislike. The hotel is very out dated and needs some care and attention, the rooms are well past their past in terms of layout and comfort. It is not good value for money at all. When checking out their credit card machines had gone off-line so they insisted that we had to pay for the room in cash - lucky we had the cash available but for a hotel not to be able to take a credit card and then have no viable back-up plan seems to me in this day and age a real problem.

    The room was large and the bathroom was nice and clean. The interior is not brand new, but ok. The reseptionists were most helpful, and the breakfast was good.

    Location. It is near some nice shops for walking and dining.

    Our view facd the train station and lots of noisy construction. The tv's need to be updated and it was the smallest bathroom I have ever seen!

    Rooms are far too small for such a price. This looks like a budget hotel for a too high price

    Very drab room. Worst Ive had in 4 months travelling . No kettle or fridge. Many hotels do have them & it makes a difference. Breakfast understaffed

    Possibility to bake your own waffles at breakfast (however the dough was undigestable due to tons of cinnamon), great free 24-hour internet cards for guests

    Worn hotel in overall, worn and old room, very noisy at night (students partying), could hardly get any sleep, poor breakfast (only whole grain bread, no croissants, fake Nutella), parking very small in the back of hotel, would never stay again
