“Complete lack of welcome and extortion of extra money ruined our stay”
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!
