From the outside this might look like a typical roadside motel but Lampeland Hotell, 20km north of Kongsberg on the Geilo road, has plenty of charm. The common areas are decorated using subtle, deep tones and the cosy velvet sofas are perfect for curling up with a book on a cold day. Rooms are simple with a few luxurious elements.
There's a decent restaurant that serves traditional Norwegian mains at lunch and dinner (169kr to 299kr), though the evening service can finish early – check ahead if arriving after 8pm.
