We left Stavanger yesterday and drove in to the valleys and ended up in Dalen, Telemark. We did not have money to take in to Dalen Hotel but we do visit it today. It is a iconic building. It is the first hotell in Norway that have electricity. The extras show the hotel from the garden.
Here is some text from wikipedia
Dalen Hotel is a historic hotel in Dalen in the municipality of Tokke in Telemark county, Norway. The luxury Dalen Hotel, once a popular locale for European royalty, is one of the largest wooden buildings in Norway and one of the best preserved hotels of its size from the 1800s.
The hotel is located in eastern Dalen on the shores of Bandak lake. The hotel owners operate a ferry service along the Telemark Canal, which during the warmer seasons has daily trips between Skien and Dalen on the historic passenger ships MS Henrik Ibsen and MS Victoria. The hotel can also be accessed by road on Fylkesvei 38 and 45, which extends down from E134 to the north.
