Energihotellet is a small design hotel located in the tiny village of Nesflaten in Suldal. In the 1800's Nesflaten was known as a popular tourist area as part of the Discovery Route from Stavanger, through Ryfylke, to Hardanger and Bergen. Today Nesflaten is known through the hydropower headquarters of Hydro's Roldal Suldal Kraft and residential area designed by famed Norwegian Architect Geir Grung in the 1960's. Energihotellet was built as a housing facility for Hydro's workers and guests and retains many unique 60's features such as original furniture and a gold fireplace. Today the hotel focuses on local food ingredients and traditions, culture and hydropower. All 14 rooms have a spectacular view of the Suldal lake and the surrounding mountains.

The drive from Oslo to Nesflaten, and especially the last part, offers incredible landscapes and this hotel is located in a very beautiful and strategic position. This is not a posh or luxury hotel, it is a very basic no nonsense hotel but with style. The building is very nice,

The journey here is half the fun, small roads empty of traffic running through beautiful fjord company. The hotel is architecturally significant, and its style is reflected in the peaceful minimalist rooms. We stayed in the junior suite in the older part of the hotel which

Dear Knut, Thank you for staying at Energihotellet and for your nice review. When we extended the hotel with new a new building based on orginal designs by Geir Grung (finished by his daughter Tai Grung (architectural firm Lie & Øyen), we mainly chose the rooms on the ground floor in the new building for rooms where dogs are allowed. Several reasons for this, first of all we wanted to have rooms where it was easy for guests to walk the dog (rooms are just next to the forrest). Unfortunately there are some limits to which rooms and areas where we can allow dogs due to the risk of allergy. We have more and more guests wanting to bring dogs, so when we now are looking at extending the hotel even further, this is an important issue. Those 3 rooms on the ground floor don`t have the same view as the rest of our rooms, but have other design-elements (concrete) and they are not A4:) Kind Regards Olav Lindseth Manager/Owner Energihotellet
