“Not to be missed, lovely hostess, warm, clean charming old house”
Reviewed 24 May 2011

My husband and I stayed for two nights in the middle of a howling winter storm in March 2010 (not June as it states above - tech glitch won't let me select the righ month). It's a wonderful old family house (with a great story) and has been beautifully restored with a kitchen, bathroom, dining room and sitting room (with a fab wood-burning stove) downstairs. There are two staircases, one leading to a large double room and the other to three other rooms - one tiny cosy double, one large twin and one medium-sized double, all with really beautiful bedlinen. The owner is very helpful, friendly, intelligent and charming as are her colleagues, even bringing us a big bag of logs before we ran out. They were keen to make sure we had everything we needed and then left us alone to enjoy it. It's a great location and the town is pretty small - you can walk everywhere in a few minutes. It's very well served by buses and the airport has a massive runway so you can get in and out even when the weather is challenging. If you're travelling on a tight budget and feel like having one treat on your trip, make it a night here - although we found it very good value for money - do ask for a rate. Just wonderful and would love to go back.

Reviewed 27 July 2010

If you are traveling through the Lofotens and arriving late on the ferry or waiting to leave next day on the ferry, or planning to go out on the whale tours or have selected Andenes as your location for viewing the midnight sun, Fargeklatten Veita provides a wonderful place to stay. The owners are very welcoming: they were out on the street looking for us to arrive! We stayed in the Kristina flat, probably the least "charming" of the properties from external appearance, but lovely and clean, big kitchen, huge bathroom and a great living room in which to gather and read or watch TV. All the properties are close to the harbor and one can easily walk to all the tourist sites in town. There is a lovely bakery just around the corner where you can get coffee and a pastry for breakfast. There are several restaurants in town, but be warned, the kitchens close at 8 pm. You can fish from the piers in the harbor, but the height above water level is not conducive to fly fishing. If you are planning to fish in rivers, you will need to get a local permit -- which can only be done during regular business hours, so give yourself a couple of nights in this location. The owners will be happy to help you make plans. This is a far nicer place to stay than the hotels in town. I'd strongly recommend it to you.
