“Crowded, dark cabins and paying for swimming and playgrounds”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

This was the first slightly bigger park we went in Norway. For us, it was like a holiday park, which some people may enjoy, but we like it to be a bit more quiet and peaceful. Many cabins situated in a small area at the mountain and in the wood. Very dark cabins and they don't stand free! You share a cabin with next door neighbours...very weird especially in Norway....
They have a swimmingpool, playground indoor and fitness area. All very nice and modern and great...but....every time you go in, you have to pay seperately and expensive. So, we choose this for the swimmingpool for our girl....but if you do so too, bear in mind it will cost you! Very strange.
Service at the reception, grumpy and not friendly, stressed and always in a hurry. Good things...the food in the restaurant is good quality, free use of washing machine and the environment (Sognefjord) is the best we have been. I would prefer another accomodation next time.

We stayed for 2 nights at one of the cabins. The cabins are very nicely situated in the middle of the forest, and are small but well-equipped. The cabin we got was sold as "accomodating 5", but the 5th person (fortunately our young child) had to sleep on a short and not-very-convenient sofabed in the living room. Other bedrooms are very small but OK.

There's a lot to do in the area and at the resort itself, but every single activity (using the indoor swimming pool, playing in the indoor playground etc.) is charged at very high prices by the hour. Staff is not consistent - some are very nice, while others are not at all.

Overall athmosphere is not very friendly - for example, while in other places in Norway you are 'kindly requested' to clean your cabin when you depart, here they make you sign a form in which you approve each of the different parts of cleaning (e.g. Did you wash the floor? Y/N ; Did you empty the trash bin? Y/N etc.) and to sign at the bottom...

overall - nice area and nice cabins, but some 'hostility in the air'.

We are a family of parents and two young adults and we stayed at Vesterland this summer .The site is nice.Our cabin was very well situated but we saw several others we would not have wanted to stay in .The largest cabins are sold as sleeping 5/6 people but they are pretty small .One bedroom had twin beds which couldn't be pushed together as they have fixed a table between the beds ( not ideal for a couple !).The second room has small bunkbeds .Now ... if you had any more people in your party they would have to sleep on short sofas !
Good points : Nice setting / good walks /log fires /small shop /there are lots of places within easy reach /motor boats can be hired nearby for about £30 per half day .Vesterland offers free internet access for short periods however when we were there the computer was often out of order .

Less good points : No kettle / The company charge for every activity they possible can eg swimming pool / squash( pay by the half hour and when your time is up the lights go out ! / even table tennis is at a charge .This results in the pool being mainly empty and also the sports centre is frequently empty .We booked directly with Vesterland but when we arrived we were asked what rate we had been given so I suggest youask for the best rate they can offer when booking !

The restaurant is quite but expensive and take away pizza 's are £18 each !

  • Liked — location
  • Disliked — paying for every activity eg swimming /table tennis
  • Tips/Secrets — ask about their best rate .we paid the website rate but on arrival it was clear that there are several rates .
