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.

Fascinating to read some of the items that have been left behind in the Travelodge group of hotels. They have published a list of the things that have ended up in their lost property departments. Unbelievable in fact what some people will leave behind in a hotel room…..
- A winning EuroMillions ticket
- Keys to a Bugatti
- A stamp album worth £250,000
- A box of 200 Queen Elizabeth masks
- A valuable set of Olympics tickets
- A trunk of Cadbury chocolate bars
- A diamond encrusted wedding ring
- A Persian Chinchilla kitten worth £600
- A suitcase of vinyl records
- A set of false teeth with diamonds
- A Rolex watch worth £50,000
- A Tiffany engagement ring
- A pilot’s training manual
- A Kenwood Magimix worth £600
- Joseph’s Dreamcoat
- A pantomime horse
- 7,000 copies of Fifty Shades of Grey (not all in the same room !)
- 76,500 teddy bears
- breat implants owned by a woman who had brought them from America for an operation.
- and a person who left a $975 Persian cat in the hotel room, despite the fact that she was on her way to a cat show.
The list goes on, amazing !!
Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Norefjell, and not missing the managers there at all.

Another photo from southern Sweden again today, and from Skane. Sweden was also the home of ABBA, who sold over 370 million records/cds, making them one of the best selling music groups of all time. Interestingly, one of the members of ABBA (Annifrid) was actually born in Norway. Apparently, they also considered Ali Baba’, ‘FABB’ and ‘Baba’ as names for the group before deciding on ABBA.
Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
