The hotel has 26 rooms with shower/wc, old diningrooms in timber and nice lounges with old fire places. We also have a wonderful log cabin that sleeps six, with shower and WC, well­appointed kitchen, two soapstone fireplaces and a veranda with views over the valley.

Wellness

In 2010 we opened a unique small wellness with a large sauna, infrared sauna, hot tub, showers and direct access to the snow outside. One sauna and some other walls are partially clad with timber from an old barn. The other sauna is built like an old stone shelter. A large oil painting on the wall depicts the rock formation Hindholet, the wellness areas name.
