This property surprised us by its location. It seemed to been in the middle of nowhere. The room was very comfortable. The host checked us in quickly. Breakfast was a nice treat as the bread was warm and they provided fried eggs instead of the usual hard boiled. The only disappointment was that they had TV in the room but it was so windy that the satellite dish could not maintain the signal

Great condition. Rooms were spacious. The views were incredible. We got to see the northern lights in their full glory, what more can you ask for. They also provided extra linen when we requested. Great service

Very clean and comfortable place to stay close to Hof'n and near Vestrahorn. We stayed for two nights and found it to be a perfect home base. Breakfast was also good.
Justin, ca2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
3/5 Positives: Nice hotel. New and updated. Easy to find and get to. Great breakfast (loved the coffee machine). Very helpful staff service. Negatives: Ran into a couple issues. First: My partner and I each got two bug bites at night. They need to do a more thorough cleaning of their beds or cover sheets. Second: The bathroom didn't have shower door, which made the bathroom floor incredibly slippery and wet. Using the bathroom after we showered was very difficult. I would recommend the management to add a glass door or shower curtain.
