The hotel is located on a hill overlooking a breathtaking fjord. The rooms are very small, but nice.
The staff was friendly. Do not, repeat, do not, get a room with "mountain view." Only get rooms with the fjord view, which cost more. The "mountain view" looks at a hill in the backyard. You could get a "mountain view" room and just sit in their very comfortable lounge, which has the fjord view, however. It you want to go to sleep and wake up to the view, however, you need a room with the fjord view. Also, don't miss the geothermal hot tubs with the great view.
