    Enkelt, rent og hyggelig. God service!

    Ble ikke lange oppholdet da vi ikke ankom før 21 og skulle reise igjen kl 10. Men den korte tiden vi var der var fin! Jeg haddetydeligvis booket et rom uten bad, men damen i resepsjonen ga meg et rom med bad uten tillegg i pris. Rommet var hyggelig og rent, og akkurat passe for oss to. Så det var TV på veggen, men den testet vi ikke. Morningen etter våknet vi uten lys på badet, noe som lett kunne blitt litt "krise" når to stykker skulle ordne seg til konfirmasjon. Men igjen viste resepsjonen kjempeservice, og ga oss nøkkelen til naborommet slik at vi kunne benytte oss av badet der. Frokosten var enkel, men fin. Brød, pålegg, egg, laks og diverse frokostblandinger. Bor gjerne her igjen.

    Fint sted

    Det var et fint sted, med bra frokost. Bra med bademuligheter nært. En ting vi er misfornøyd med: vi hadde bestilt rom med bad, da vi kom hadde de ikke dette. De rommene var gitt til andre. Ellers var alt fint.

    Kan fint anbefale overnatting på Hovdetun

    Rask innskjekk, behjelpelig og hyggelig personell i resepsjonen. Rommet var større enn jeg trodde. Hadde singel rom med enkelt seng. Liten sittegruppe med sofa, bord og tv på rommet. Badet var lite og trangt, men rent! Frokosten var god, alt du trenger for en god start på dagen. Hyggelig lobby med sittecruppe og peisestue.

    Övernattning i tjänsten, ett helt ok hotel, tror dock att det har mycket mer potential på sommaren

    Enkelt og hyggelig sted.

    Enkelt, men koselig sted. Hyggelig betjening. Enkel, men god frokost. Billig. Ikke den beste madrassen jeg ligget på.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Mycket prisvärt vandrarhemsboende. Utmärkt frukost. Skönt, att sänglinne och handdukar ingick. Bra standard på den lilla lägenheten, där tre reskamrater och jag bodde. Åker man motorcykel, skrymmer utrustningen, när man byter till vanliga kläder, men vi hade inga problem att få plats.
