“not very clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2010

We stayed two nights in Brekkusel. It was overall a nice place and would have been a nice stay if it was cleaner and more comfortable. The bed we had was very lumpy, and not only that, didn't appear to be covered with a real sheet. It looked almost as if it was just covered with a badly stained mattress cover. The shower area was also kind of dirty, and the towels were stained.
I think this could have been a really nice place if the rooms were kept up a little better.
I couldn't wait to leave.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2009

This was a lovely self catering room, with en suite kitchen and bathroom. Spacious, warm ad tastefully decorated, we were a short walk away from the town centre. Very good value for money - highly recommended.
