The hotel, which is located on the "sunny side of Mount Gausta", was originally built as a sanatorium for wealthy townspeople who sought to get out of the unhealthy city air to gain new strength in beautiful nature and fresh mountain air. Today, the hotel is owned and operated by Malin and Einar Gurholt.

Rooms with soul and modern facilities
All the rooms at Tuddal Høyfjellshotell have been newly renovated, and the old style and soul have been carefully preserved. Each room has its own original and original style.

Apart from the main building, there is an annex in the yard with 3 bedrooms. The rooms here are slightly larger than in the main building with room for a small family. You can also bring your dog here. The cabin Haugestul has been newly restored and gently refurbished. Here it is authentic!

The Gildehallen is close to the hotel and is a popular gathering place after a trip out in the fresh air. You do not have to be a hotel guest to use the Gildehallen.
