Recently renovated, this sprawling Scandinavian manor offers modern rooms on historically legendary grounds. Said to be on the venue of a great viking battle, the Quality Olavsgaard Hotel offers somewhat more peaceful environs now, situated halfway between Oslo and the airport. Handy to the E6 expressway, families can make the most of the hotel's many child-friendly treats, like little gifts and special kids' check-in, plus full-size tubs for the easy containment of children and water at bath time. While the entire grounds are beautifully maintained and conducive to relaxation, there are also conference facilities onsite for those with business on the brain. Oslo city center is 15 kilometers away and easy to get to by car using the expressway.
