We have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions during the last 10 years. Since being taken over by Thon Hotels we have noticed a difference. Unfortunately, not for the better. We were accompanied on this skiing trip by another couple who had always wanted to stay at the Hotel. Whilst our room was acceptable, the other one was inferior and overlooked the kitchen courtyard/bins. It turned out it was an old office, but not converted to the same standard. Both rooms suffered kitchen noise, particulary at night. The evening meal was repetative and unimaginative. On one occasion half way through the holiday our request to sit together, as we had done every night, was met with suprise. Whilst they said they would lay a table for us together we got tired of waiting and did it ourselves! Breakfast was reasonable but on one occasion staff had more food on their clothing than I had on my plate! Whilst the general atmosphere of the hotel was OK the fires were not lit regularly as they apparently did not work! Unfortunately, we had experienced some of these issues at another Thon hotel in Geilo on a previous occasion and now assume that they are their norm. Our complaint to them on returning home was poorly dealt with. In consequernce we will not be returning to this or any other Thon Hotels
A previous visit to another Thon Hotel in Geilo was similarly disappointing.
