    We were lucky to have the entire cabin 11 (10 rooms, if not more) empty, only for us, which increase significantly our comfort, by allowing us to have the common living room just for us; otherwise, room was for dwarfs, but warm and clean, good wi-fi the Hungarian guy who accomodate us was extremely kind, helpful and supportive

    TV in the room was as unexistent (only one Norwegian channel), the location is quite far, far away from any populated area (if you are excluding, of course, Norwegian-Russian customs border) and the price(breakfast excluded) was not friendly at all...

    Excellent restaurant Multiple services and activities

    The location is a bit awkward, just outside Russian border, that's the only thing we could think about :)

    Ann was an excellent hostess, handling nearly all aspects of my stay. She was very friendly, conscientious, and hard-working. The setting was very beautiful, and it was a nice place to relax.

    The internet was in and out, and some of the other guests were not good about keeping the shared kitchen facilities clean. The restaurant was rumored to be good, but it was extremely expensive, without any modestly-priced options. I ended up going to Kirkenes to find a meal under 300kr.

    Nice room. Excellent kitchen/common area. Country location 1 kilometer from Russian border. One of the best showers ever.

    Location near Russian border, Midnight sun, visit to on site Husky Training Facility, friendly staff, good Sunday night buffet at restaurant. Would stay again.

    Cabins very basic, more camping style than a hotel but adequate, wifi slow.

    Liked the free-standing cabin with a good sized sitting room and liked the closeness of the lake and the hiking trails. Staff were friendly but not very flexible. If returning, I would stay here again but take my French Press and plan on a season when I could take advantage of the huskies and the lack of light pollution to see the Northern Lights.

    Sadly, we were there on Monday so did not get to enjoy the restaurant. Also, the bedrooms were very small, and the kitchen had no coffee maker, not even a French press. Yet coffee in the lodge was not available until 8 am. Surprised that there were no black out curtains, but did enjoy the midnight sun even though impeded sleep. Seemed a bit pricey for the level of rusticity. Also, even wanted to charge us just to look at the huskies they own.

    The location - a short walk from the Russian border, a beautiful view of the lake and access to walks up the hill to a terrific viewpoint. Friendly and efficient staff.

    Only i OK but very expensive restaurant in the vicinity. Didn't know before arriving that there were cooking facilities in our cabin.

    We visited Sollia Gjestegaard early April. We had a very pleasant stay! I liked it being there in April, for me it was a perfect combination of a comfortable cool temperature, snow and blue sunny skies. So there was snow and the lakes were still frozen, then of course we made the dogsledge tour, with 8 lovely enthusiastic dogs. It was a very unique experience in a postcard pretty scenery. The owner/cook made us a Salmon Pasta dinner, which was delicious! The site is a bit away from the centre of Kirkenes, but check out their website or call them for the pick-up possibilities, it’s worth it travelling some (about 15) extra kilometers for a Norwegian style holiday experience.

    Wonderful stay at Sollia!!! Einvind and Jurunn are truly wonderful hosts and it was a very memorable experience to stay at their cabins. Better than a city hotel. So close to the beautiful nature, and we were able to catch Northern Lights in the woods behind the cabin. Very unique experience compared to regular city chase. They also have dog sledding at night! Einvind is a fantastic cook too and filled us well with delicious meals like creamy pasta and melt in your mouth salmon. Overall, definitely strong recommedation to stay. We want to go back in summer and experience it differently along with the beautiful lake side restaurant.

    Wifi is surprisingly good for being so far out but do note it's not strong enough for streaming. As city folks, we learnt to enjoy the peace and quiet and read as opposed to be connected all the time! And sleep early! The sunrises are beautiful!

    Very happy with our stay at Sollia Guesthouse. There were facilities we hadn't realised it had, such as a kitchen with washing machine and dryer, a sauna, and various trips such as dog sledding and chasing the northern lights. Our meal in the restaurant was delicious and the staff were really helpful. It is only15 minutes by car from the airport. Would love to return one day.

    There was nothing we didn't like.

    Super friendly, helpful, nice breakfast. 5 star food and 1000 star night excursions. Great dogs and sledging, felt very safe.

    Quite dear prices and lights from border post and on grounds of Sollia are very bright.

    The staff here was incredibly welcoming and helpful. Not only did someone carry out suitcases to our room in the annexe, we also got an insider tip for a good location for watching the Northern Lights. We could also have booked an activity through the hotel, which we didn't because we'd already sorted this ourselves before our holiday. We did not get a chance to sample the food in the hotel's restaurant but were told that it is very good indeed.

    The walls are very thin in the annexe, so there was a lot of loud door banging going on during daytime hours.

    The owners were very nice and helpful. We also ate at their restaurant and the food was exquisite. Highly recommend doing one of their dog sledding trips. We almost past it up and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. The whole staff treated us like family. We loved it.

    Can't think of anything we didn't like.

    It has the personal feel of a family run guesthouse. It's friendly and the food is excellent.

    Very icy walking from the main building to the room.

    Location gives many oportunities for outdoor activities. A great place if you like nature.

    The prices are very high, but that is a general problem in Skandinavia.

    Absolutely great staff. One of the owners is the resident chef. Great food!! Quiet, comfortable surroundings.

    Only drawback is distance from town. Use the hotel shuttle - a lot less than a cab!!
