Seljord Hotel

Top choice hotel in Seljord
Image by

This lovely old wooden hotel, which dates back to 1858, started life as a ladies' college, but on running out of potential 'ladies', it became a hotel. Rooms have period touches and are individually named, each with its own story. It, unusually, has the same rates all year. The restaurant is Seljord's best.
