The staff at Granlibakken made sure everything was perfect for our group. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the food was beyond fantastic. This was our third event at Granlibakken, and we will be booking another retreat there for 2016. Next year I will be riding the zip line! I'll be 74 then, and I think it's time.

We had the chance to visit this nice hotel during the Spartan World Championship. The staff was welcoming and helpful. I really liked the free breakfast in the morning. The rooms were clean and spacious (we had a little loft). The localization of the hotel was great because it was close to everything in town, in driving distance. The wifi...

We stayed in the 2 bedroom townhouse. It was large and the kitchen was stocked with every amenity any cook would need. Slightly dated buildings but everything you need. Awesome breakfast buffet. A bit on the pricey side for its age.
