Stayed for a week in Kringla cottage 1. It was ideally located, within easy drives of everywhere we wanted to go. Kay was very friendly and helpful. The cottage itself was extremely well equipped, with a comfortable bed (we don't always sleep well away from home), kitchen with everything anyone could need, and a handy washing machine! Noticed a complaint...

Management response:

Looking forward to welcoming you back next year!

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It is great that you found Kringla to be so convenient for sight seeing. I am sorry you did not find the bed comfortable. Many of my guests have commented on getting a very good sleep at Kringla. Everybody has different requirements when it comes to mattresses. I hope you...
