An interesting night
I stayed one night at the Dombås Hotel while on the road. The motel and hotel are run by the same people and the reception for both is in the same place (in the food service building up on the top of the hill in back of the hotel). I wanted to stay at the motel but I think they must close down at least some of the motel buildings for the winter and ended up in the motel.
The staff are friendly and the buildings clean and the food good. The main motel building has a nice lounge with TV and books and games. It is a bit of a problem that the reception is not located in the hotel building (which 100 meters away from the motel/reception). At first, we were given a key to the wrong room and had to run up to the hotel to explain that we had walked in on a half naked man. Then the front door to the hotel building malfunctioned and we had to call someone down. We had to call up to get the code for the free internet and so on... It wouldn't be so bothersome except you are paying 'hotel' prices.
Don't be discouraged from staying here. It really is clean and nice but they really should position staff down at the hotel as well. We paid 1200 kroner for one night.
The famous part has burned down
The famous old landbark building that was Dombås Hotel burned down to the ground in May 2007. After this tragic incident only the new part of the hotel is left. And the front desk and restaurant has been moved into Dombås Motel. Even the new part of the hotel, which was saved from the fire has a distinct motell feel about it. It is worn both outside and inside. I have stayed here one night because there was huge delays on the train to Oslo. So unless the old building is rebuildt I would stay clear of this hotel.
Unique Quality: None anymore
Fine, old and homey
We did not stay there, but went in to check the restaurant, which serves a buffet style dinner between 19 and 21.
The old part of the hotel burned down 19 may 2007 :-( But there is still a hotel there with 60 rooms, and a motel with 23 rooms.
Unique Quality: Dombåstun Hotell is a beautiful wooden building right in the middle of Dombås. It has 78 rooms, a restaurant, 2 bars and a night club, and there are conference areas. There is also a motel, as a cheaper alternative. The atmosphere is homey and elegant. Great place for company conferences!
Directions: Right in the middle of Dombås, appr. hundred meters from E6.
