Amazing stay. We were there for one night whilst travelling up north. I called as we’d arrive after check in closed. It was no issue. He told me my accommodation room number and I was open for our arrival with the keys left inside. Lovely, clean accommodation with really comfy beds. If I was coming back I’d certainly book a couple of nights here

Beautiful waterfall in our front yard. Room was adequate. Needs new pillows. Breakfast was good. Staff was friendly. I would stay here again.

Highly recommended
Typical Country Hotel with each room having its own access to outside. Lots of 'Troll' information and trails overlooking a beautiful waterfall. Food was good and very reasonably priced, and the excellent breakfast was good quality - the first time we have had real sliced ham for breakfast instead of pre-formed, fruit was very fresh, warm bread etc. Facilities were very good, access to well equipped kitchen if you wanted to self cater (as well as the fridge and microwave in the bedroom) and showers and toilets for campers and hot tub users were very clean and comfortable. Excellent value stopover with everything you need.

Good location to see the northern lights
We stayed here for one night on our trip round the ring road. This would be a good location for northern light spotting if the weather was right. Our room was overlooking the waterfall and had everything you would expect including a mini fridge and TV. There are hot tubes on site and troll walks. There were no evening meals when we stayed, but we were given access to a self catering kitchen and took advantage for the free breakfast the next morning.
