I recently stayed for 9 nights at this excellent guesthouse as part of a photography tour of the Lofoten Islands. Nothing was too much trouble for Lilian, our wonderful hostess, who made us feel so welcome in her home and was more than happy to accommodate our daily pre-dawn departures in search of the best photographic opportunities. She is a... More

I had the opportunity to stay with Lilian at the beginning of the season and while the guesthouse and location were amazing, she really made me feel welcome despite being the only one there. A lonesome traveler couldn't have asked for anything more. She knew where to take photos, connected me to the locals, and was a real pleasure to... More

I'm just back from a week's stay in this excellent guest house and can highly recommend it. Lillian was the perfect hostess, who made us feel really welcome and looked after all our needs. Nothing was too much trouble and we really enjoyed all aspects of our stay. The guest hose was spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable and perfectly positioned... More

I spent last week staying with the owner Lilian at her guest house with a number of friends on a photographic tour. We had the guest house to ourselves and found its location ideally placed in Reine to explore the area. The owner was a genuinely lovely and very knowledgeable lady and made us all feel very welcome in her... More

A group of us stayed there in February, 2014. Although the accommodations are rustic, Lilian makes it a memorable stay in this Lofoten island gem. She radiates warmth from the moment of your arrival, and caters to every need. In my case, she led me through the use of a Norwegian SIM card for my US phone, a fact that... More

Of all the accommodations we had booked all over Norway, we had low expectation of this one. Somehow the photos did not look all that appealing to us but we booked anyway based on the great reviews and location. I am glad to say that this place is much better than what it looked in the photos. The wood paneled... More

You can't find a better place than Reine in the Lofoten Islands, and this place feels just like home! I really enjoyed this stay and Lilian's welcoming. It is great to be able to have tea (and not the cheap one!), and coffee whenever you want in the little living room. The location is perfect when you do not have... More

I spent 4 nights by Det Gamle Hotellet in Reine and thanks to Lilian my holiday there was perfect ! Her place is nice, clean and her hospitality goes much beyond "the usual stuff". My single bedroom was at the top and I enjoyed the fjord view. In the common area teas and biscuits free for everybody at any time... More

I had 5 nights in early April, and it was a lovely stay. Lilian is friendly and very accomodating, afforded me some extremley pleasant introductions and had excellent suggestions for what to do for winter fun in Reine. I've been many times to Lofoten and promised myself one year to stay in Reine and get a feel for that south... More

I stayed here 2 nights early September 2012. It is right opposite main bus stop in Reine and only a 1 hr walk to ferry. Very helpful but not intrusive host. Clean, quiet and comfortable beds. Shared bath has tub and shower and is spacious. Shared sitting room with tea and coffee. NICE PLACE! Reine is a lovely town and... More
