Clarion Collection Hotel Hammer

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Central and cosy hotel with the additional service of snacks and waffles in the evening. My preferred hotel in Lillehammer, but sometimes others have cheaper offers. Within easy walking distance of the rail and bus station.

The hotel is ideally located for a weekend in Lillehammer and surroundings. Very nice and helpful staff at the hotel. Rooms are nice and tidy and they have dinner buffe and afternoon coffee free of charge.

We recently stayed here for three days (originally we only booked for two but decided to extend a night so we could visit the Maihaugen museum which we discovered wasn't open on Mondays in winter). The reception staff were so welcoming and we had no issues extending our stay in the same room. We were given room 416. Great room, on the highest floor with a lovely view of the mountains (just ignore the postal distribution centre below, not noisy at all. Our room had a small balcony with two chairs and a great big door which let in lots of light. Comfy queen size bed, wardrobe, hairdryer and iron. No safe or fridge. Coffee maker on desk. Dressing gowns and skippers provided. Great sized bathroom with heated floor and great shower water pressure. We were really impress with the food inclusions in our rate. The daily rate included breakfast, afternoon tea which was freshly made waffles and light dinner. Brekky was the normal affair with eggs, bacon, salad, cold meats, cheese, cereal, yoghurt and lovely fresh bread. The light dinner was actually quite substantial with two hot selections, salad, cold meats and cheese as well as a light dessert. You won't go hungry here. The staff were fantastic, welcoming and so happy to assist. I had a query re ice skating in Lake Mjosa and Christian at reception was more than happy to researchand find me an answer. The location was perfect, walking distance to the main pedestrian mall. Lots of parking. The hotel does have some limited free outdoor parking but you have to ask for it. They also have under cover parking in their garage which you have to pay for. We were so happy here. I will be recommending to everyone I know including my clients.

Many hotels in the Clarion Collection line is a bit to "stuffy" to my taste. This is the opposite. You almost get the feeling of staying at a mountain lodge instead of a city hotel (well, if you find Lillehammer to really be a city....). Inviting reception with a real fire place, friendly service, clean rooms and a standard, but good breakfast. Recommendable.

The hotel was cosy and inviting - especially important during Norwegian winter! Rooms were clean and good size, but the water from the shower tended to leak out onto the floor. It was really convenient that the hotel offered dinner - food was simple but good quality and tasty, with salads, mains and a dessert. Breakfast was also good with plenty of choice.

Very clean, nice and cozy hotel in the city center. Helpfull and friendly staff. Coffee and te available at all hours. Breakfast and evening meal included in the price. We very much enjoyed our stay!!

This hotel is fantastic because of the wonderful staff. They helped us with travel arrangements and made mealtime pleasant and warm and friendly. Every day we felt like we were being welcomed into long lost family. Being convenient to town, it was nice to go out for morning and evening walks. The big windows in the dining areas made the light snowfall all more beautiful. Meals were more than adequate as breakfast, afternoon waffles, and dinner was included. After a long day of having fun in the area, these were more than adequate. The rooms near the lobby were great to hang out in, watch TV or work on your computer. The hotel rooms were just fine. I can't recommend this hotel more highly since the staff here just took this property to a higher level.

This is a modern and tidy hotel in the heart of Lillehammer. The room was nice and clean, the staff was helpfull and friendly, the meals was very good, especially the breakfast. We will defenately come back😊😊

Excellent hotel, staff and food. What we liked the most was the food service. through out the day, snacks are served including breakfast and dinner. All buffet style. Good choice for vegetarians. The head chef was so kind to advise us which dish is for vegetarians. to get to the underground parking lot, what impressed us , was the satellite image copy of the location. that the front desk staff gave us. It made it so easy to locate the underground parking. Parking entrance is small but managable.

From the outside the hotel look exactly like any of the small wooden houses along Lillehammer's main street, and the feel continues into the reception area and the cosy lounge with a fireplace. However from there on it is a modern hotel with all you can ask for. I like the Collection themed hotels with its cosy feel, free coffee and waffles and rot top it up evening meals are included from the buffet. The rooms are good, with very good free wifi throughout the building. The staff is friendly and very service minded, which is pretty much as expected from a hotel in Norway. Would I stay again, already have ;-)
