8/10 Very good

Lovely guesthouse with friendly staff and a fab breakfast. We were in room 3 which is not really suitable for 2 guests. One side of the double bed is right up against the sloping ceiling, other rooms looked better suited. Also thousands of midges came into the room, I believe mozzy screens may be put up. Staff knew about this problem in this particular room. However all said, we had a lovely stay and will return next time we are in the area (but not in Room 3!!!)

Brita B&B was great. I would definitely stay there again. Everything was super clean and quiet. Staff was friendly. Close to Stefoss for food and dining. Sights not super far away.

2/10 Poor

I do not understand high reviews for this place. The house was built as a low-security women's prison in the 1980s and housed two women when it opened. Later, it was used as juvenile detention. We did not know this prior to staying. That vibe is still there. Rooms are small and old. You feel like you are in a dungeon. Our room was in basement, so I am not sure what are the rooms on the official website as all people were placed in the basement basically. Common room is also very dark and depressing. I would not recommend trying to sleep here. Someone turned on their ice cream truck to be charged overnight on the wall where we slept. Not possible to sleep at all.

What a lovely place to stay for a few nights! The location was perfect for exploring the south, but more than that, the accommodations were lovely. The space was very clean and homey, with a nice room and lovely common spaces. Breakfast was delicious and the owners worked hard to accommodate my diet. We saw the Northern Lights there! But more than that, the owners were kind and helpful and responsive. We loved our time with them and cannot recommend it enough!
