The hotel is really something special, very nice and the view is spectacular. For kayaking the area is perfect- we spent the weekend kayaking around in the archipelago, we will be back!! The restaurant was good, fish and meatmeny.

We are a family of 3 persons, two adults and 1 kid. We drove to kingstad because it was a wonderful place for kajaking. It was recommended in some travel guides. We booked for rental of kajak for 4 adults and 1 kid and also we booked for dinner at this nice restaurant. When we arrived to the place. We were hosted by a woman who told us everything we needed to know for the rental. When we took all necessary equipement, an aged man showed up and started asking about our level of expertise for kajaking in a very rude and unpleasant manner. Despite our efforts to calm down the situation, the man treated us really bad and we finally decided to cancell everything, both the kajak and dinner. We were really dissapointed with this because the surrondings of the restaurant are really wonderful and nice place for staying the day. It is really a pitty that this place is being managed by this man. In addition he believes that the parking lot belongs to him and if you arrive with the motorhome he will come to you and in the same rude manner he will tell you to bugger off” just like he did to other people, unless you are staying in the restaurant. By the way, the man is not a local norwegian but an english man. Unpleasant experience

Response from Ian-from-Ringstad, Manager at Ringstad Sjøhus - Huset på Yttersiden
Responded 12 Aug 2019
I saw you trying to go out on the water in a very dangerous manner. Pushing an elderly lady out who was very unstable in her kayak. Her personal floatation device was not even fastened correctly. It was not closed at the front. No other kayaker was on the water to tell her what to do or rescue her if she went over. This is breaking all the safe kayaking principles there are. It is no surprise that I stopped this dangerous situation from going any further. We have an unbroken safety record here. I intend to keep it that way. You signed to say you were a competent kayaker that can rescue your self and others. That is the only way we will rent out our kayaks without a guide. If it obvious that dangerous practices are taking place then it will be stopped. I am sorry you did not understand this but that the only way I can save life.

Ian and Karina and their whole crew are amazing: they shared so much with us! Arctic kayaking in the fjords, eagle safari by boat, Mose sightseeing, hiking recommendations, photography advice, saami encounters, snow-shoeing, aurora borealis explanation and hunting, norwegian cooking, we have done it all - and it is all amazing: they are driven by their passion in an ideal environment, and a wonderful house literally on the banks of a norwegian fjords. We spotted seals visiting us at breakfast... unforgettable experience. My stay is not over but I already know that I will be back. Thank you for everything, this is undoubtedly one of the best experiences and holidays of my life! Judith :)

We received a warm welcome from Ian the moment we got off the bus. Once we arrived at the house we were made to feel very welcome. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side but Ian, Korina and there team made every effort to ensure we got the most out of our stay. Well worth a visit for many reasons.
