“Disappointing honeymoon suite”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

We rented their so-called honeymoon suite for our marriage weekend. It was disappointing in so many ways:
The inner glass on one of the windows were shattered and dangerous shatters of glass were sticking out!
The sliding door in the living room couldn't be closed. There was a 5 cm glitch and the wind blew straight in. A burglar wouldn't need to break in, he could just lift the provisional clasp, slide open the door and walk straight in!
The so-called firewood provided for the fireplace were cut pieces of used woodplanks. Some of them even had nails in them!!
Before arriving we got an SMS from the place, wishing us welcome and "PS! Have a look in the fridge". A very nice gesture, we thought. In the fridge we found a bottle of alcoholfree wine (which we had requested, so that's ok) and a small box of chocolate. Total worth probably less than 100 NOK. Not that impressive when we were supposed to pay 1995 NOK a night.
The bathroom with it's bathtub was filled with candle lights - which would've been nice except for the fact that all of them had already been lit before and some were almost "empty".
We got no breakfast in the morning, and we didn't receive any information regarding where we could get breakfast.

On the positive side we had a very nice view to the ocean and the beds were ok. We also had quite a lot of luggage since we brought our baby, and the personnel were kind enough to help us carry it.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

We were supposed to stay in one of the main buildings, but we got downgraded to a separate ramshackle building ...

The beds were narrow and uncomfortable. The TV was broken. The place wasn't very clean. The walls were very thin. The view of the sea was non-existent. There was one shower between 12 adults.

Breakfast the next day was a farce - they kept running out of the bread, and the choice was fairly poor.

Definitely one to avoid!
