We stayed at the Skansen from30th November to 4th December 2012 and found it excellent. It isn't the poshest place in the world, but as I've said on here many times, you get what you pay for, and by Norwegian standards the cost is very reasonable. It was spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfy and the en-suite shower was a of a high standard. My favourite thing of all was the underfloor heating in the bathroom! I have never experienced underfloor heating before and it was such a novelty I took to standing on the lovely warm tiles in my bare feet with a big daft grin on my face! (Yes - OK - I know I need to get out more). The breakfast was good - you don't get an English breakfast, but why would you? You're in Northern Scandinavia. There was plenty of choice of spreads, juice, coffee, tea, bread, cold meats, and freshly boiled eggs etc. etc.
Super friendly and helpful young man on Reception when we checked in - Jonathon.
In my opinion there were two things missing which would have helped enormously. 1. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room - the coffee machine in Reception cost £1.50ish for half a cardboard cup of lukewarm very bad coffee. 2. A toaster in the dining room to toast the very nice bread they provide.
