Det jeg ikke likte var , DÅRLIG SKILTET, og når du søker opp adressen dukket det opp tre forskjellige adresser. ( brukte Google, GPSen i bilen og mobil kart.) Måtte til slutt ringe men dårlig dekning gjorde at det tok veldig lang tid før vi viste om vi var på riktig vei.. Damen i resepsjonen viste heller ikke vei navnet, så vi måtte vente mens hun fant ut av det. Men når vi endelig fant frem var alt annet veldig bra.

This was a bit atypical since I was the only guest in this very large facility! Still the cook came in to prepare breakfast just for me. Very accommodating! Staff was very pleasant and the facility is very well-appointed. Great breakfast buffet on normal days. Rauland is definitely off the beaten track and not the place for swinging urban pursuits. But it's wonderful for quiet relaxation and outdoor activities.
