Photo of the Day Saturday 2nd February 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day……” You cannot make your candle glow brighter by blowing out the other guys’.”
“Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.”
I could never understand why so many people stayed at the Quality Spa Resort in Norefjell. For one thing, it is up on a hill, 13km from the nearest village of Noresund, and reached by driving up a toll road, including a section that is gravel. Not only that, but in winter the drive up to the hotel is not easy, as the road is covered with snow and ice. Then when people arrived at the hotel, they paid a small fortune to stay in what I would rate as an average 3 star hotel, and certainly nothing special. I have stayed in many hotels that would knock spots of this hotel, but why do people drive up and pay high prices to stay here?? True, the hotel does have a small swimming pool and a limited skiing area around it, but if people travelled to the Swiss or Austrian Alps then they could find far better skiing areas. Are the hotel rooms special at the Quality Spa Resort? I would say not, and certainly nothing out of the ordinary. And the food in the hotel? Again, nothing that would make me drive up 13km into the hills for. So if you are heading to Noresund then my advice would be to stay down in the valley, save some money but still be in the same area.
