    Yuck!

    All horrible. The location horrible, the cabin cute from outside but tiny inside and wasn’t clean inside. Just glad it was only 1 night.

    Best sleep during our long trip.

    Good to have no one next to your wall and good to have our own room in a cabin. Very quiet and comfortable night.

    This is a campground with very "rustic" cabins. The pictures are very inaccurate.

    Bathroom in a bad shape. Shower door was broken. Strong sulphuric smell. Fridge did not work. There was a very strong sulphuric smell in the water .. not sure if that was the case with all properties. The check in process was very smooth. We stayed just for a night so we were able to manage somehow.

    A living room and two bedrooms with plenty of sleeping places and all the amenities make the place very comfortable and cozy. Very quiet location, too.

    Ok, but potential to be really good

    The cabin is a good size and has an area for bbq, hot tub and steam room. The sofa and beds were comfortable. The decor, kitchen and bathroom need some serious upgrading to bring up to more modern standards. Instructions on how to use the facilities listed above would also be very useful (not everyone has these at home and know how they should be used). The DVD player that is provided would also be useful if there were any cables to connect it to the TV. In short, it was ok for one night but could be so much better to make us want to stay there longer.

    Spacious accommodation on Ring Road

    A really spacious cottage right off Route 1 in Blonduos. Good facilities for cooking and ample parking. Shame we only spent one night here!!

  • 8.0.Very good

    We loved our cottage and the surrounding area. Everything was great. The staff could be more forthcoming and friendly...not bad, just a lack of good customer service. I think English skill was one issue.
