  • Er det mulighet til å check in tidligere, rundt 10.30?

    Hej, Vi kan tyvärr inte checka in er så tidigt, vi har utcheckning kl. 11:00 och våra rum behöver städas inför våra incheckningar från kl. 15:00. Vi kanske kan checka in efter kl. 12:00, om det finns färdiga rum då. Med vänlig hälsning, Heliz Reception
