About us

On the edge of the Randsfjord, you will find the idyllic Thorbjørnrud Hotell. Despite our rural location, it is walking distance to Hadeland Glassverk, Norway's largest outdoor water park; Randsfjorden Badepark and Jevnaker centre. A short drive from the hotel you will find the iconic Kistefos Museum and their international attraction The Twist. Thorbjørnrud Hotell is a pronounced food hotel with a focus on short-traveled food and local produce. In our lush hotel garden, there is plenty of fruit, berries, vegetables and ornamental flowers that supply us throughout the year. At the hotel, we also have an unusual hotel brewery where tours and tastings with the hotel director are on the agenda. We have 82 spacious rooms, of which 8 are family rooms.

Historical with distinctive architecture

The farm where Thorbjørnrud Hotel is located today has a long and versatile history - and can be traced back to the 14th century. The main house has been, among other things, the director's residence of Hadeland Glassverk. The hotel wing was built on in the 1980s, the architect was Alf Bastiansen. The new building is a rare architectural gem with a lot of glass and consequently a lot of light and a view of the historic garden and the Randsfjord. The venerable Direktørboligen today serves as a company and restaurant venue. We have otherwise done a lot to create a vibrant, colorful and inspiring hotel - with the help of interior design and art and the lush garden.
