Our stay here was a warm and welcoming experience. It was easy to find as we drove there directly from the Oslo airport. The front of Hollandske Guesthjus faces the highway, and the back of it faces a small river or large stream. The grounds are beautiful, and we enjoyed exploring them as we walked near the stream. The owner... More

We stayed in the cottage by the river. It was a beautiful setting! The cabin was built in 1924 so understandably, there were no modern amenities! It was very clean. However, I do think it would be nice it they upgraded the bathroom and kitchen. The bathroom had no separate shower facility. Therefore, the water flooded the floor and you... More

We stayed one night here- our first night of our Norway trip. We were delayed at the airport (our luggage was accidentally sent to Sweden and our flight was delayed) and there was lots of construction on the highway so we arrived much later than we originally intended (around 9 pm). Our hosts were very kind and helped us to... More

We stayed one night here during a tour of Scandinavia. The guesthouse/hotel is in a great setting by the river, with a large and scenic garden. Location is good for the transit route Oslo/Trondheim. Comfortable room, and superb home-cooked meals and a welcoming landlord. The hotel has a very interesting history, which is all around you in photos and explanations.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay in the Kvila at det Hollandsk Gjestehus. The Kvila is a comfortable wooden cottage in the one acre garden that we came home to after our various trips in the neighbourhood. Whenever the sun was shining the veranda was the place to relax, with its nice view over the river Lagen, on which... More

The Hollandsk Gjestehus is a lovely guesthouse with a nice story that explain, an ideal stop on the route between Oslo and Ålesund. Berny and Maarten, the hosts, are a nice couple with a fun and interesting conversation. Highly recommended.

This guest house is perfect for anybody traveling between Oslo and Alesund. Being an historic hotel has some compromises - this is a traditional, all-wooden building so don't expect five stars luxuries - but the experience is quite unique giving a true family feeling. A beautiful garden by the river and classic living room with couches and armchairs provide plenty... More

Lovely stay in this hidden treasure hotel. The food was as tasteful as the lovely design of the rooms. If you like real experience on your trip, stay a few more days, and discover the splendid natural surroundings. Thumbs up for those enterprising Dutch! Floris M
