We stayed at the Thon Hotel Vestlia just before Easter 2010. The location was wonderful. We took the train up which was comfortable and convenient for the hotel who collected us from the station. It was very easy to ski in and out of. The slopes were not overly crowded and there wweren't any queues for the lifts. The hotel was convenient for alpine skiing also. The staff were fantastic:the kitchen catered to our needs being vegetarian and gluten intolerant; and the front desk booked extra activities such as snowscooters. The spa suites were very comfortable and appeared to be newer than another wing of the hotel. . The hotel has two pools. The nicer one in the brochure/website/posters is only for over 16 year olds which wasn't advertised anywhere except when we went to go in with our 12 year old daughter. The other pool was much older, colder, and had no towels for guest use.
location Sauna never worked
the saff wernt kind and wellcome
For the price we paid I found it not fair that you still had to pay for the swimmingpool. I realise however thatr his was probably part of the spa pacakage we didn't take.
Room had not been cleaned. Filthy and disgusting.
Close to Downhill slopes. spa and swimming pool facilities excellent ! Reception staff very professional and customer friendly. Insufficient toilet paper stored in bathroom. Breakfast at Buffet not very delicate (experience:out of bacon, old/dry cheese, undelicate fruit). Some of the staff in breakfast area apparantly not too concerned about hygiene when handling food (not wearing gloves when E.g handling bacon). 3-Course dinner ok, but limited food/value for the money paid.
The staff was kind and helpfull. For my purpose it was a very good choise.
The view from the room was nice. There was free use of sauna and swimming pool. Very dry air in room. Mattress too soft. No hair dryer. Swimming pool rather small. No towels at swimming pool. Evening meal was set dinner, no possibility to choose. Stale bread for breakfast. Hotel quite far from town centre. We were lured to this hotel because of the swimming pool and sauna but those were disappoining. There are probably better choices closer to the town centre.
Very good service, super geilo-overview
Very pleasant hotel, beautiful view, comfortable room. The lady at the reception desk was very nice and helpful! The dining buffet was also good with wide choice. After the abundent dinner we had high expectations but the breakfast was not above standard. It didn't spoil too much because the total experience was a very good one.
I really enjoyed staying in this hotel.I got an apartment with all the possible facilities. The breakfast was good also.
The evening buffet was excellent with so much to chose from. The receptionist and the gentleman in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful The room was rather small and basic.
everything went smooth, the staff was very friendly and smiling all the time, the overall atmosphere was very good. The food was brilliant, now after a week we got used to what we would get from the buffet in the evening, maybe a little bit more variation would be good - but keep the smoked salmon! it's a family hotel and in the evening children kept running in the gangways while their parents were at the bar (probably). As we had a room in front of the bar, we heard them all the time, but it didn"t last till the late hours, and it was very bearable. This is really the only minor point we can mention, so it's no big deal at all
Very good hotel, Beautiful location. Price is reasonable.
Big comfortable room, wonderful view of the mountains. Fair facilities: no minibar, no fan
Very good location with a large view on the montains. Air conditionned a bit noisy.
