“Cozy, cute, central”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We were not sure what to expect, especially in terms of decor, but we were really happy with our room and stay. The antique furnishings were charming, not over the top, we had a small, modern en suite bathroom, and a kitchen nook with a fridge and small stove that let us fix our own breakfast. Adequate kitchen gear to fix a simple dinner, too, which could save a ton in Norway! A nice location close to central Larvik and the water, within walking distance of various sights. We found the host to be friendly and helpful, including pointing us to an excellent Indian restaurant just a few blocks away when we got in late and hungry. The courtyard is cute and it is quiet at night. We would recommend this place to anyone who does not need luxury or handholding. A good deal for Norway.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2010

The rooms are well decorated with antique furniture and clean, but the owners clearly hate the fact they earn their livelihood from their guest house. There is no breakfast (which is not completely clear from the website), there was no information in the room and the owners were totally unwelcoming and brusque. The worst part was when we were leaving and Ronny bullied us into paying an extra 100 NOK per night for putting us in a "more comfortable room" than the room we had booked, as the guest house was completely booked the second night. He's a big guy and we didn't argue. If Margaret or Ronny could perhaps crack a smile and be upfront about the real costs, they might generate a living from their guest house. Currently they don't deserve to!
