Such a lovely and warm place. The location is superb for a skiing adventure. The fire place at the reception is quite charming and welcoming especially during the winters. The food is great. I just love all the Radisson hotels out there.
We stayed here in January for a skiing holiday. The apartment was a good size, clean and with an excellent kitchen. It was decorated scandi style with reindeer hides etc. The ski hire side was a slick operation and we were assigned a locker so after skiing all the way back to the hotel you just store your skis and boots in the locker at the end of the day. We also changed our skis to better ones after the first day without any issues. Food and drinks are expensive in Norway so it's a good idea to bring some supplies with you.
Stayed here for three night during the world rallyX championship in holjes Sweden. Very nice hotel, the room was comfortable and breakfast was good. Excellent outside parking conditions. Also used the pool which was really comfy. Location for biking in the summer and skiing in the winter is great. Pleasant staff as well. The restaurant and lobby has a good atmosphere. Highly recommended
We stayed here in Feb half term. Trysil isn't too busy whereas some other ski resorts tend to be at half term. Excellent facilities for storage of ski equipment and straight out onto piste. As a beginner, I found the close proximity to the green runs to be wonderful. There is a short trek uphill to the meeting area for lessons, but it's not too far and you just need to leave yourself some time to get the kids moving! Lessons from Trysil Guidene were fantastic. They pay so much attention to adults and children alike, and are so encouraging with beginners. By the end of the week they had me and the kids on a blue run despite my reluctance. Left me just wanting to go back again! The hotel was very clean, modern and had a lovely scandinavian feel about it. We ate at the buffet which was good, but especially enjoyed the pizza restaurant. Huge choice for breakfast. We had to leave very early morning, and were provided with a 'pack up' and a coffee to take away while we stood outside waiting for the bus - much needed in those temperatures! Swimming pool was best used before mid afternoon when it got busy and it could do with being a bit warmer. Having said that, there is a lovely warm sauna if it gets too much. Overall, I would certainly recommend this hotel. It's a fantastic base, the ski in ski out makes things really easy and the slopes are perfect for a beginner.
We stayed in the Radisson blu hotel for a week at the beginning of April. Our family room had plenty of space for the 4 of us, with one double bedroom and two sofa beds in the spacious living area. It also had plenty of storage, including a very useful drying cupboard for wet ski clothes to dry in overnight. The food was excellent, with different themed buffets and a great selection. Desserts in particular were excellent. The hotel is literally ski in and ski out, which means no walks to the slopes - a real bonus. We would highly recommend this hotel and this resort for skiing.
Had a good week staying at the Radisson Blu in Trysil. Skiing was good - we are not expert skiiers! but good selection of runs, friendly and patient ski instructors. Would recommend and we would go back to the resort/hotel.
Our group consisted of 4 adults and 4 children (aged 5 to 6). We stayed in a 4 bed apartment on the top floor on a half board basis. Apartment was absolutely incredible (amazing high ceilings, floor to ceiling glass offering views of the slopes, German kitchen with top of the range appliances, big bedrooms and cleverly designed bunk rooms for the kids). 1800 sq ft gave us more than enough room for all of us. Hotel facilities themselves were first class as others have mentioned. Particularly impressed with the food. The ability to ski in / ski out and the well organised boot room made the experience of getting on and off the slopes with whole family a breeze. Overall an extremely enjoyable (and possibly even relaxing(!)) family holiday. Would definitely return.
We stayed in a 3 bedroom prestige apartment in this hotel and it was simply amazing. Huge apartment with 3 good sized bedrooms, overlooking the ski slope. No, not overlooking, more like hanging over the ski slope!!!! Giant living room, cosy fireplace, comfortable seats/beds. A quick few negatives. There was no phone in our room so we could not order room service. The only restaurant available during daytime was the pizza restaurant. The room could be cleaned better. Room cleaning was cheaper if booked in advance than booked in the hotel. There was no microwave. The ski/boot room was perfect, garage for the car, ski in and out on a very gentle slope then access to the main slopes through button lifts. Huge terrace in the apartment, amazing views, great fun swimming pool, decent play area for younger kids, cool lobby area, the bowling area looked nice. The wifi was excellent. We are already planning next year's trip!!
A superbly located hotel for the ski slopes - and a great ski locker room with ski in-ski out convenience. The hotel is extremely well run with efficient and professional staff. Food is generally very good quality. Rooms are superb - clean, well appointed and superbly comfortable beds. My family thoroughly enjoyed staying here for 8 days. Not the cheapest but well worth the cash. We will go again and we are hard to please!
It's challenging to find somewhere decent for late march skiing. Trysil is a gem. Just over 2 hours north of Oslo it has great skiing in March. By Alps standard it's not a big resort but perfectly suited to families and beginners. The accommodation choices were limited and Radisson Blu has a bit of monopoly but they do it very well. Excellent front desk staff were so welcoming and engaging. English only speakers not a problem throughout the resort. Whether at the swimming pool, bowling, restaurants or bar everyone made us feel welcome. The hotel has excellent facilities for families - great swimming pool, bowling and entertainment area. The restaurant choices were good - though in our week the main restaurant was shut. Very well organised resort with ski lockers accessed using room key passes (and swimming pool lockers too!). Ski in/Out was huge bonus and close to main "tourist centre" very handy. Downside is that ski hire is a hike up the hill and not available in the hotel. Go for halfboard option if you can - it's weird as only gives you option for a "main and dessert" (not starter) but it is reasonable value given prices (and quality) in other restaurants around the resort. Norway and resort are not cheap so also bear that in mind. The inclusive breakfast is fantastic though - a true smorgasbord of options! Another bit of advice - stock up in duty free on booze (spirits and wine - check limits but they are good). You can only buy alcohol under 4.75% in supermarkets otherwise you have to go to the government controlled off-licence in town (vinmonopolet) - it's a 20min walk downhill to get there and not a great choice either. This is a great place for families with beginner/intermediate skiers. The hotel caters very well for families and the skiing has excellent green and blue runs (but also some of the best pisted blacks I've ever been on!). Thoroughly recommend as alternative to the Alps. Radisson Blu run a tight ship with fantastic staff, good sized rooms and facilities.
