Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
We booked the two bedroom apartment and were very glad that we did. We did lots of laundry and were able to thoroughly clean all of our water bottles and other dishes we had used along the way. Having bedrooms at opposite ends of the apartment ensured a quiet, uninterrupted sleep. Beds were very comfy.

Superb apartment
We stayed in an apartment in the Old School. It was very spacious, comfortable, and even elegant. Although it was not inexpensive, the well-equipped kitchen, large living room and 2 bedrooms made it a good value.

The hotel was clean and quiet in a lovely fjord setting. The dinner at the hotel was excellent. Breakfast was a little sparse but they made a very good latte. Overall a very nice experience.

Comfy stay in a converted school
Charming little town and this is a matching house to stay in. I stayed in the downstairs suite of the old school. Lots of room and it was comfy and clean. Laundry facilities are a perk! You can hear the people upstairs walking around and such, so if you are a light sleeper you may want ear plugs. The light was burned out in one of The rooms, but otherwise things were in good shape. I didn’t use the kitchen, but it seemed like it would have everything you need. Close to restaurants and local photo ops.
