First of all, this cosy little hostel is a private house and you stay there as if you were staying over at a friend. Don't confuse this with a luxury hotel because you'd be disappointed. If in stead you're looking for a place where service is still personal and you're really looking forward to meeting new people and share travel...

Great visit at Lilian's guest house which was clean and comfortable. She was very welcoming and a great host with helpful correct advice with everything to do and see in Lofoten. Only negative was the toilet and shower were located in same room which didn't allow you to use toilet when guests were in bathroom/shower for long periods of time....

Thank you for your review and recommendations! I'm happy to announce that from autumn 2016 there will be another bathroom available downstairs for my 8 guests. Happy traveling and I hope to be able to welcome you here on another occasion.

If you have your sights on traveling to Reine, you probably already know that this is one of Earth's treasures. You'll not be disappointed when you first see the village situated against a backdrop of Olstinden and other fjord peaks. The setting is nothing short of breathtaking. Staying at Guesthouse Det game Hotellet is unlike staying at any hotel. While...

The guesthouse is located in the heart of Reine, close to an oil station where you can by some grosseries so it's very convient for a road trip. The hostess was very nice and helpful (she helped us with ferry timetables), the room and shared bathroom are clean. There's a space where guests can chill out and take breakfast together...

I stayed a couple of nights here in late September / early October. The house is easy to find, located in the middle of the village opposite the bus/petrol station. I had a top floor single room which was basic in furnishings (basically a bed/bedside table and chair) but comfortable. You also can't lock the door from the outside, although...

We had the upper two rooms of the guesthouse, and enjoyed it very much. The location was great - we could see the harbour from our window, and everything you could want to do in the area is within walking distance. Lilian was a lovely hostess, and was extremely helpful with local suggestions. We wished we had stayed longer!

Beautiful white house right next to the two restaurants and café in Reine. Beautiful view from the window. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can do laundry at their neighbors house which was very convenient after some days hiking. Absolutely recommendable!

My room was a single on the top floor, perfect for taking photos during the Midnight Sun. Everything I needed was provided in this clean,warm, welcoming environment. And I agree with Chris H, who said it has a bit more of a community feel. My favorite part of my stay, however, was Lillian. She is a font of information on...

I recently stayed for 9 nights at this excellent guesthouse as part of a photography tour of the Lofoten Islands. Nothing was too much trouble for Lilian, our wonderful hostess, who made us feel so welcome in her home and was more than happy to accommodate our daily pre-dawn departures in search of the best photographic opportunities. She is a...

I had the opportunity to stay with Lilian at the beginning of the season and while the guesthouse and location were amazing, she really made me feel welcome despite being the only one there. A lonesome traveler couldn't have asked for anything more. She knew where to take photos, connected me to the locals, and was a real pleasure to...
