We stayed at Hovden Resort for one night. 2 adults and 2 children aged 2 and 4 respectively. We rented an apartment wich was informed to have 3 bedrooms. Surprisingly, two of the bedrooms did not have a window (wich became i slight problem because of the heat in the summer). This was disappointing because there was no info about this before we arrived and actually saw it with our own eyes. I even doubt that its legal to marked apartments where so called bedroomsare without windows. At least the website should offer some sort of information about this upon booking.

Apart from this we had a good stay. The hotel is easy to find, and the parking facilities were good.The apartment was clean, cosy, and with a well equipped kitchen. The staff was nice and friendly. They had a small playroom with a lot of toys wich the children apreciated.

Would I stay here again? Yes- but not in a so called 3 bedroom apartment if I really needed 3 separate bedrooms. 2 bedrooms were very small, and, as mentioned, they didn´t have windows.

Date of stay: July 2018

Hi and thank you for your visit and for taking the time to leave us a review regarding your stay!

We are happy to hear that your children enjoyed our playroom and that you found the apartment clean and cozy! We are also glad to hear that you were well looked after by our staff!

Regarding the sleeping arrangement in the apartment and the small bedrooms with no windows: We apologize that it wasn’t informed well enough that all bed rooms don’t have windows and that this became a problem due to the heat! A good night’s sleep is important! We will look in to getting this information out clearer for future guests.

Our apartments have been designed with smaller bed rooms to make space for a roomier living room and kitchen. All is approved by the right authorities and is fully legal.

We hope to welcome you back to our hotel again!

Really great resort with nice cabins and a hotel - the style is traditional and old-fashioned, looks great. It was also nice to have breakfast in the hotel restaurant, the food was good as well. Will return.

We are a family of 5 and have rented an apartment here a week in (winterholiday) February the last 5 years. It is a quiet place with nice staff and location. The hotel serves all meals but there is small kitchens in the apartments to use.
The kitchen is often missing some cutlery or cooking utensils. We have noted, along with our friends who rents another apartment, that the apartments are a bit worn out, and the beds have lost their tightness.
When we look at other apartments to rent at Finn.no this is high priced with regards to standard....so next year I am sorry to say, we are probably renting somewhere else here in Hovden.

Hi Ivar,

first of all, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.
We are very glad to hear that you have chosen us as your holiday destination for the past 5 years, and that our staff and location is to your liking. It is unfortunate to hear that you missed some cutlery and cooking utensils in apartments, and would like to apologize for that. We will take this directly with the housekeeping department for improvement. We are in the process of improving our rooms and apartments, and we are happy to say that all of our hotelrooms has been partly renovated. We will also be changing out our beds this year and we hope to have the chance to welcome you and your family again in the future!

We stayed in one of the three bedroom apartments that are obviously more popular in winter for the ski resort so a great price out of season. Decorated in a modern style, fully featured kitchen, comfortable living room with big TV. Peaceful and tranquil location with a river running along the back of the hotel. Had a great night's sleep! Five minutes walk from the centre of Hovden.

Hi Marcus,

Thank you for your review, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you got a good nights sleep!

Our apartments are our most popular room option amongst our guests and we are truly lucky with our location close to both the centre of Hovden and beautiful walking tracks.

Hopefully we get to welcome you back during winter season as well!

Kind Regards

This a cheap hotel with a big river on the backside. Friendly staff. The Hotel is very old inside and outside. But clean with an old atmosphere. Just few hundred meters from the center of Hovden. Nice and quiet.

Room tip: Big hotel with lot of rooms and cabins.

Hei Trond,

Tusen takk for at du tok deg tid å skrive en omtale, vi setter pris på alle tilbakemeldinger vi får fra våre gjester!

Vi har valgt å beholde noe av det eldre i våre felles lokaler fra tiden da Hovden Resort (tidligere Hovdestøylen) bygdes, men det er planer om litt oppussing i fremtiden. Noen av våre hotellrom fikk seg en forandring nå i starten av 2017.

Vi håper vi får ønske deg å dine hjertelig velkommen tilbake til besøk her hos os oppe på fjellheimen!

Med vennlig Hilsen

Madeleine
Resepsjonist
Hovden Resort
