We stayed here three nights in August. Owners and staff were fabulous. They were cordial, provided gourmet meals, and even helped us navigate the area and find help in locating the farm where our ancestors grew up before coming to US in late 1880s. They made the trip a memorable one. Thanks to them all. This is a very special... More

We stayed at Nordre Ekra for five nights recently. The room and the location was fantastic, so peaceful and relaxing. The historical aspect also added to the whole wonderful experience. The fact that our dog was also welcomed was a bonus! On the last night we decided to have dinner in the restaurant. I can honestly say that this is... More

I was initially thinking I would review the location and accommodations...that was, until I had dinner. We decided to book our evening meal here given the other reviews on Trip Advisor and the sparsity of choices nearby. Forget choices!! In our 10-day trip across Norway, this meal was hands down the best. We could have been in Paris, New York... More

We had a three course celebration dinner at Nordre Ekre where I also tried some of the local speciality beer. All the dishes and the fresh bread were delicious. The hostess was great and had a wonderful sense of humour. The farm has a very tasteful interior and a nice shop where you can buy local farm products. Highly recommend... More

This farm hotel has everything we ever would want: historical atmosphere, excellent food and service, clean, tasteful, reasonable price. The owners have taken their customers seriously by restoring and inviting us into their unique medieval farm buildings. We will return.

Beautiful scenery in such a remote part of the world. We saw a wild reindeer, musk ox, and a herd of probably 50 domestic reindeer that surrounded our car (no Santa, however). The Farm House is run by lovely people, and it is just incredibly relaxing and special. You can hear the roaring rapids of the river which is just... More

This is a real gem of a hotel. We stayed one night in June this year, our experience confirmed the glowing reviews the hotel has received. The accommodation is comprised of small farm buildings which are very comfortably fitted out. Some of the buildings are centuries old. They are decorated with a sophisticated simplicity. The hotel is located in a... More
