Arrived via the longer Fjord route, which seemed a lot longer than the 15mins additional time than using the tunnel, however It was snowing and would not recommend this route if snow is settling on the road! Staff were very helpful giving advise on trips out and forecast for the Northern Lights with wake up service offered if they are spotted. Hot tub was a welcome relax after the drive and managed to co ordinate with 1 hour of sunshine! Rooms were lovely, split level with the bedroom upstairs and sitting area and bathroom downstairs. Torch may be useful if you need to 'go' in the night! The views over the Fjord magnificent from the room but even the rooms that had views over the mountain out the back were stunning. Bit of a shock when the hot water in the shower comes on as very strong smell of sulphur but you soon get used to that.
Food was beautiful, fish and lamb excellent and vegetarians also catered for. Breakfasts were superb with plenty of choice, the Gravlax was to die for with the dill sauce and all the bread was freshly made.
Would definitely stay here again and the staff welcoming and very helpful. After a very slight mix up over a dinner, and with no complaints from me, they even refunded the cost. Excellent service thank you Richard!
