We had a great time at Hotel Hamar. The dining experience exceeded expectations and was delicious. We even got a wake up call to see the northern lights. We would stay there again.

**Be careful of their beautifully decorated yet slippery tiled bathroom** Picturesque hotel ground! We got a corner junior suite (room 130) that walks out to the golf course from the back door. Great setting to see the aurora, and we did on our mid-September trip! Really appreciate the hotel staff's aurora wake-up call too. What we want to caution other travelers about is their beautifully decorated yet slippery tiled bathroom. It's the glossy type that can still be slightly damp after wiping. My 9yr old child slips twice after everyone has used the shower and once nearly hit the toilet. It may be a safety hazard, particularly for senior travelers. I'd suggest for travelers place towels all over the floor after using the shower. Other than that, it's a really lovely hotel and great breakfast too!
