Dr. Holms Hotel

Top choice hotel

in Geilo
Image by Booking.com

The century-old Dr Holms has been providing a place for relaxation and recuperation amid the mountain scenery for over 100 years, and it has an air of undeniable grandeur. It's split in two halves: the historic old section, with 'English-style' rooms full of antiques and burnished furniture, and the modern annexe with more contemporary, clean-lined rooms.

There's also a traditional restaurant and, rather inexplicably, Norway's highest bowling alley.
