The room was practically new. We had a great view of the fjord and found it to be very comfortable. We were very pleased with the room. The staff was friendly too. We came in late September, which is the off-peak season. As a result, the place was deserted. There were people staying there, but they appeared to be local workers. The kitchen was very well stocked for the summer crowds. The common area was a mess. Breakfast in the morning was no good. Everything was days old and I didn't eat it.
