Both the reception, library, fireplace lounge, Øyer Hall, Hafjell Hall and restaurant with the dining rooms and buffet area are on the same level. Most of our food can be made lactose- or gluten-free. There is easy accessibility between the facilities. The main entrance is created in a way that makes it easy for people with wheelchair to enter, all year around. We have therefore created an entrance area with a gentle slope down towards the front door - in addition to laying heating cables in the entrance area so that it will not become icy in winter.

For the Hotel, it is important that there should be minimal use of disposable items such as plastic glasses. The hotel focuses on energy management, waste sorting and HSE work for company employees. We were re-certified for 3 new years in June 2023. The hotel has a great commitment to society and supports local sports and associations, in addition the management has several positions in the local environment. People from many different nations work with us and the diversity is great. On the 2nd floor above the kitchen, we have created a large staff room with a dining table, sofas and a large TV. Here we eat lunch together as far as possible, and hot food is served from 11.30 - 14.00 and 18.00 - 20.00 every day. We are concerned that everyone should respect each other and know that everyone is equally valuable. When employed with us, you get a link to a digital personnel handbook that is continuously updated when they start work. We have gatherings, Christmas parties, general meetings and departmental meetings, as well as regular staff meetings. Breakfast buffets and buffets have no single-use items, and guests are encouraged to serve themselves several times, so that we reduce food waste, both via information in the food market and via infoTV. Self-produced honey is served at the breakfast buffet, which our 30,000 colleagues on the roof produce. In addition, pigs are bought from a local farmer, where the hams are hung in the barn on the roof together with own-produced cured sausages. A herb garden on sedum grass has been planted around the barn. The kitchen at the hotel buys moose from moose hunting teams in Øyer, and makes its own moose chops, among other things.
