Villa Ballstad
Reviewed 8 August 2016

This looks like it was a house that was turned into a hotel, so has five(?) bedrooms of varying sizes, with shared facilities. Stayed in a triple room, which had a bunk and a single. It had a built in cupboard for clothing, and a small side table with light. It would have been small for three people, but possible. As others have mentioned, the walls are a little thin, so if people on the other side of you were talking, you could hear that they were talking, but not overly so.

I was a little concerned about the shared bathrooms (there are two, one upstairs has a separate shower and tub, the one downstairs has a shower with no separation from the rest of the room), but I never had to fight to shower.

Kitchen had a full sized refrigerator (no freezer though), oven and stove. Nice dining area, and lounge area with TV (I did not use, so cannot speak to the channels). Even fully booked, it wasn't very crowded. WIFi worked throughout.

Location is a little out of the way, about 3km from the village of Ballstad, which has a Joker (grocery store) along with a couple of restaurants. Free parking, and near a bus stop, although depending on the day there may be few, if any, buses.

Beautiful place, but ols house - it can be noisy. You can hear what people is talking about, even if you are in your room on the 2nd floor.. Spectacular view!! We stayed one night. Shared bathroom and showers. Rooms are unfortunately VERY SMALL - we had some problem to fit our bag in the room. Only 70 cm wide beds. We paid 95$ for 1 night, excluding breakfast. This was the most expensive stay under our 2 weeks trip in Norway.

Lovely shared house, a bit out of the normal touristy path (which is always good), but easy to find. Very friendly managers, it is clean and well-maintained. Facilities (bathrooms and kitchen) are very good, one of the best I've experienced considering the price. The views from the rooms in the house are incredible, overall a very very good decision to stay here if you travel solo, with friends, as a couple, but a little less if you have (small) children.

Beautiful shared house in a very nice part of Lofoten. Clean, cosy and quiet. Very friendly and professional managers. We stayed for three nights and really enjoyed the peace and laid back atmosphere between dives with Lofoten Diving (next door, same managers).

Big shared Kitchen (self-serviced), two shared bathrooms. No staff in the house, but they are always avalable by phone. Garden with furniture and barbecue.
