Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Dalen Hotel is a fairytale hotel, build in 1894 in grand romantic style with dragonheads, towers and balconys. The paper "Varden" wrote in 1894: "The new elegant furnished Hotel at Dalen, at the top of the Bandak waters, is now ready to recieve guests".After early golden days and later years of decay the hotel was in 1994, after years of restauration finished to welcome its guests again, all restored back to its original beauty. It has the same soul, calmness, peace and atmosphere as the wooden castle that opened for more than 110 years ago.

A romantic hotel taking you 100 years back in time. Beautiful details inspired by the old Viking ship Oseberg. Wonderful staff and great food. Nice veranda with a lovely view of the lake surrounded by the mountains.

This is a lovely historic building, and very well restored. The setting is great with lawns sweeping down to the lake. Inside, one feels very Edwardian, as if you were on the set of a Merchant Ivory film, dark wood, brown leather etc, service staff in Black with small white

"Ask for rooms overlooking the lake, for example the corridor starting with number 31, odd numbers"
"We had a very nice view out toward the lake - the sounds of the waterfalls down the mountains on each side of the hotel is unforgettable"
"Book the rooms without the bathroom: you will truly enjoy the "historic" place and they have the best view"
"upper floor roomsat the rear, have a view to the water"
"For us seniors, rooms on the ground floor is recommended, as the hotel has no lift."
