The recently renovated Dalen Hotel is now-days a hospitality magnet in Norways Tokke municipality. The hotel was originally built in 1894 when the hospitality/hotel need grew and an overnight break became mandatory on the cross country tourist trek that linked together the Skien - Bandak lake and further westwards.
The hotel has had a few ups and downs over its initial 100 years or so before almost falling into a ruin, eventually the hotel closed and fell into disarray. Now fully restored in its original glory.
Now-days Dalen Hotel is a fully functioning destination in itself, open only during the summer season. The hotel is a member of.
The Norwegian Hospitality Group.
