We stayed at this lovely little place for 2 nights. On arrival we were told that there had been an over booking and we could not get our family room. However, they gave us a cabin instead. This was at no extra cost to us, so we were very happy! The cabin was directly in front of the ferry wharf. That was slightly disconcerting at first as the ferry docks right in front of the window. However, it ended up being very interesting! The view is gorgeous and the place is quieter than Flam. We drove around to Flam and were glad that we had not booked the hotel there. The cabin was basic but comfortable. We ate at the pub/ restaurant and had hamburgers which were relatively good value. There are 2 supermarkets in the town and so you can easily buy beers and food from them. The breakfast is served in an old fashioned house next door. It was very pleasant. The staff was welcoming and cheerful. Overall, we would certainly recommend this place as a quiet alternative to busy Flam.
