We stayed in one of the rooms shown above. It was very simple inside and small. However it was fine for 3 of us. It was warm and dry and the shower worked fine with plenty of hot water. The owners were lovely people and very welcoming. There is nothing else there except the guesthouse but they provided lunch, breakfast...

Sollia is located about 20 klm from Kirkenes, right above a beautiful lake. To the pros: the staff was very helpful and talkative. Its transport service available and on time. The view from the breakfast room amazing. There was heating and hot water in our apartment all the time. The apartment kitchen was well supplied and I cooked some delicious...

Dear Pennoula! Thank you for your review. We like to get better and try to listen to our guests. We have upgraded our TV's and have 9 channels. But the size is still "small" since it shall fit in the room.

Gorgeous little huts. Central fire giving cracking heat (it was -33 C when we were there and the house was toasty warm). Self-catering facilities, although there were no shops nearby so I guess most useful if you were having a holiday with a car from within Norway. Lovely views of the lake from which you can see the Russian border....

We stayed here for 3 days in March 2015 and there was thick snow all around. The cabin was basic but very warm, had a small kitchen and nice shower room with a good powerful shower. Across the road is a small lake and halfway across that is the Russian border, so the landscape opposite is Russia. You can walk...

Very hard working team made this a great experience for us. We stayed two nights 6th and 7th March at the end of a week in Norway.
