The General's Story
General Hotel is a small and family run conference hotell in a green area south of Hønefoss. “Everything” here is within a 1 hour reach: OSL Gardermoen, Oslo, Drammen, Kongsberg and Valdres. The hotel is located close to the river “Storelva” that floats out to the “Tyrifjord” and there is only a 10 minute drive to Nordmarka and Krogskogen. Here at Helgelandsmoen the military has had a location since 1869. In 2004 the area was sold to private investors and in 2009 we opened our doors. Our last extention was in 2011.
As people we are helpful, personal, informal and precise in our work.
Our kitchen is international, with French roots. The hotel also has a real Italian trattoria as an a la carte offer.
Our interior is characterized by a sober and modern Scandinavian design. In 2011 we set up new conference halls and meeting rooms with tasteful furniture and lots of modern equipment. Our rooms where new in 2009 and are both practical and comfortable in accordance with today’s standard.
The swimming centre “Ringeriksbadet”, the gym “Actic”, the “Gallery Klevjer” and the boat “M/S Dronning Tyra” are our good neighbours and many of our guests pay some of these a visit. We also help our customers with planning various activities.
