Accueil très serviable d'une jeune belge francophone qui nous a donné plein de bons conseils de balades autour de Vik. Mention spéciale pour un excellent petit déj avec de la truite fumée et du pain maison. Miam miam !

Really nice breakfast with waffles and delicious bread included. Located maybe 15 minutes walking from the bus station at N1 on a hill near the famous church. 6 person bedroom was okay but a little bit old fashioned. The kitchen was perfectly equipped and very clean.

Heizung im Haus ist defekt, es gibt elektrische Radiatoren. Der in unserem Kellerraum ( Zimmer kann ich es nicht nennen) schlug Funken. Schimmel in der Küche (Wand/Decke) Badezimmer komplett ungeheizt. Obere Stockbetten viel zu nahe an der Decke. Bettwäsche, Bettzeug und Matratzen uralt und verbraucht. Haus ist insgesamt sehr verwohnt, gesprungene, dreckige Fensterscheiben, sehr speckige alte Sofas im Eingangsbereich.
