The Bardøla Hotel has a certain charm - one that's hard to define...but we do know we like it. Perhaps it's the traditional wood furniture and scattered antiques, or the lounges with inviting open fires, or the 'games'-orientated facilities (darts, billiards and board games), or the home-made pastries served in the acclaimed café? Or is it simply because it all combines to feel authentically Norwegian, in all its home-spun glory. There is nothing of the corporate feeling you get when staying in a chain hotel. In Bardøla you are genuinely treated as a guest by the friendly team - as it should be.

None of the six suites, 60 semi-suites and 55 standard rooms are the same when it comes to décor.....it's one of those hotels. All are comfortable and are well-equipped with a shower or a bath, minibar, telephone, satellite television and internet access. The standard rooms can take one extra bed, while the family rooms (which, like the junior suites, boast a sitting area) can sleep up to five.

Kids are made to feel particularly welcome - there is a playroom and organised activities centered around crafts, baking and magic shows every evening. Adults tend to gravitate to the large bar, which features regular live music, and the sauna, jacuzzi and solarium. There is a large indoor pool with an adjoining children’s swimming area. The spacious and elegant restaurant is not only the setting for dinner, but also an impressive breakfast spread, from which you can shamelessly put together your packed-lunch for the mountain. Dinner is a three-course buffet with fish and seafood specialties, plus plenty of game and meats such as reindeer. Only fresh Norwegian produce is used, and the hotel bakes its own bread and smokes its own fish.
