Unfortunately we have to contradict the high scores of other guests, as this was the most expensive accommodation of our entire trip in Norway, and the lowest in quality of services offered. In practice, although the view from the courtyard garden was really worthwhile, and very friendly owners, we had a room where the shower had no water enough to make us a decent shower, and slept on a sofa bed! I managed to take a shower with water that came out of the thread, but my wife, and her long hair, they had to wait to get to the next hotel to Alesund (a hotel with excellent room and breakfast included, in the city center, cheaper of this lodge!).
Also, I have serious doubts that the linens are replaced at each change guests.
Two other aspects that make the price too high, is the lack of breakfast, and the distance from the center of Bergen (but we knew that), but we were hoping that the room was superior to the others, since it was the most expensive.
To conclude, I would say that there are two solutions, or the owners take the lowest cost, aligned on drill equal in quality accommodation in norway, or are forced to advise against this accommodation to future guests. At least the room we had.
