Die kleinen 2er-Hytten waren ausgezeichnet ausgestattet und gemütlich (Kochplatte, Geschirr, Tisch, Stühle, Heizung, Kühlschrank)! Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.

We got a room next to the eating room so it was loud. When we stayed there, a schoolclass made their trip to this place to. And our room was between their rooms. :( Its a nice and cleaning place with a great fjord next to it.

+ Schöne Blockhütten für Familien. + Ess-/Spielemöglichkeit vor bzw. hinter der Blockhütte. + Schöner Aufenthaltsbereich mit Balkon. + Gut ausgestattete Küche im Aufenthaltsbereich. - Kein Frühstück. - Kein Brötchenservice am Morgen.

Sehr guter Ausgangspunkt für eine Fahrt durch das Setestal. Der Fluss Otra in der Nähe ist großartig. Wenn es regnet,wie bei unserem Aufenthalt, ist es schon eine Überwindung, nachts über den Hof zu den Toiletten zu laufen. Sehr positiv war, dass wir auf unseren Wunsch hin als Alternative zu dem kleinen Zimmerchen im Hauptgebäude - eine Hütte bekamen, in der sogar ein Kühlschrank stand.
