“Nice stay close to Hellesylt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

A fairly basic but comfortable set of cottages set outside the town of Hornindal run by a very friendly and accommodating couple. Very easy to find. The cottage was basic but spacious and had all of the necessary furnishings and a small kitchenette for self catering. Location was perfect, 20 minutes from Hellesylt and the Geirangerfjord ferry. A good place to stop. Need to be sure you bring cash though for payment. There is no wifi in the cottage but the couple opens up their home with a room for you in their house to use the wifi as needed.

It took us some difficulty in trying to find the place! We had made a right turn and went up a road to some cabins which had no one staying in there and frankly the entire place was quite spooky in pitch black darkness. The owner and his wife had gone out for dinner and had left us a note on the cabin door with instructions to look for a barn and a white house. We had trouble in locating the white house and had to call him. So instead of turning right, the house was actually located at the bottom of the slope on the left. Their main house was located just a few meters from where we stayed, and we were the only occupants for the night so we had free rein of the kitchen and the lounge. The owner had also left the heaters running before we arrived!

Kitchen was abit old, but fully functionable. Our room (room 1) came with an ensuite toilet that had a stale smell in there, not too strong though. There is free wifi in this place, but i could not connect to it in the room. So if there's really a need for you to get online, reception would be strongest close to the main house. Of cos in the bitter cold, we didn't want to be standing out there so my partner was hiding inside the car while being logged on and it was snowing lightly outside.

Cozy little place, not exceptionally new and superbly clean but with very friendly hosts. It could be quite hard to know what the host's talking at times, as he tend to slur at times.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple
