I have stayed 3 times in Quality hotel Olavsgaard and it is very nice place for conferences or meetings (especially during summertime). hotel is right next to highway (only negative thing about it), but definitely the hotel is older than highway, so can't blame the hotel owners. Hotel is easily accessible also by airport transfer bus, which leaves in every half an hour just in front of the arrival hall. Buscompany Nor-Way Busexpressen, line F1, stop Olavsgaard, appr 30 min, 150 NOK one way in 2013.
Hotel building looks like nice old cattle mansion. Rooms are rather small, but for conference guests big enough. Hotel offers one of the best breakfast and lunch I have ever had. There are so many options available that you could easily spent hours in buffee restaurant. And compared to many other Norwegian hotels, they offer pretty decent coffee as well - fully automated WMF machine offers full range of drinks with or without milk.
Majority of the conference rooms have windows, which is big thing, if you have to spend a full day in one room only. And they have fresh fruits, cakes, popcorn and soft ice available for conference guests. Wi-fi is free of charge for their customers and it works perfectly everywhere in the house. So all in all, very nice place for conferences, trainings and long meetings.
Only negative sides of the hotel come from it's location - noise from highway and the fact that there is nowhere to walk around the hotel.
