Set on the outskirts of Geilo, the Bardøla Hotel has some wooden cabins and private chalets on the adjacent piece of land. Therefore, the facilities of the hotel are on-hand for you to make full use of (indoor pool, sauna, restaurant & bar), but you have the freedom and advantage of being in a self-contained space. They are cosy - note the fireplaces - but without being in any way opulent. The cabins are heated up on your arrival and a sack with fire-wood is included.

Each cabin has four bedrooms, creating a home for up to 10 guests, with two of the bedrooms are in the loft - this is where the children gravitate to. Two bathrooms with heated floors and shower cabinets, an open-plan kitchen and living room (with TV) and the afore mentioned fireplace completes the picture. encourages a warm, comfortable atmosphere. 

They also have a handful of chalets for hire in a nearby farm; Paalrud also sleeps 10 in four bedrooms, spread over two floors;  the Queen Farm is  a charming log cabin with three bedrooms; the Royal Palace (really?!) has a large living room with fireplace, two bathrooms and four bedrooms on one level and,  To Rely is the smallest option, a impossibly cosy cabin for just two people.
