Hard to add anything more to the already superlative reviews - all I can say is that they are not lying! The location was stunning but made even more special by Margherita who was holding the fort whilst the owners were unable to be there. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she went the extra mile the whole... More

We had the most wonderful time at Kongsfjord Guesthouse, such a beautiful place. The accommodation was perfect for 2 couples travelling together and it was warm and comfortable. Wonderful food and drink. As for the Owner and her colleagues they could not have been more perfect... had the feeling we had known them forever and they looked after us in... More

My sister and I have just returned from Norway. We stayed here for a couple of days and wish we could have stayed longer and not wasted time or money going to the next venue in Kirkenes. There was quite a bad storm but our room was cosy, warm and safe. Osa and Marguerita make this place very special indeed.... More

My sister and I were here for a couple of nights and have never felt so welcome. Asa and Margarita are amazing women and their warmth and the quality of the accommodation made for an unforgettable stay. If you go, make sure you take advantage of the very cosy lounge area upstairs, with tea and coffee on tap, so very... More

Stayed here for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year to go scuba diving with king crabs. The room was wonderful and tastefully furnished, with real character. Kongsjford is a tiny place, but is home to some fantastic people. Although the owners were away, I was made to feel amazingly welcome by Margarita (a wonderful lady who works at the... More

Currently in Kirkenes after a wonderful two night stay at the Kongsford Gjestehus. As others have commented, the warmth of welcome from Asa and Margarita, combined with the high quality accommodation, delicious home made food and simply stunning surroundings make this a very special place. Walked for four hours around the peninsula and didn't see another person - just the... More

This is an incredibly beautiful and peaceful place. The cabins were very comfortable and the hospitality brilliant. A great place to get away from it all and soak up the amazing scenery and wildlife. My visit left me with fantastic memories.

This place is one of the most peaceful places that I've visited. We were there in the middle of winter - a week before Christmas - and we arrived in the village on the bus from Batsfjord not really knowing what to expect. Thrown out of the bus, we were greeted by Trygg who loaded our luggage into the car... More

We had a very warm welcome here from Asa and Tryggen. Asa very kindly made us a Blotkake when we couldn't find one in Tromso. It was delicious. Our room was spacious being the disabled room on the ground floor of the little house we stayed in. The underfloor heating was amazing and I had to turn it waay down... More

Have just spent 2 nights here with good friends. Have travelled all my life but never experienced anything similar. The nature is just fantastic in good (or bad) weather. I expect Veineset to be a good place for birdwatching, diving and just walking, There were lots of seals svimmimng close to the shore. The rooms in the guesthouse have been... More
