Very nice lodge style guest house. The room was fresh and got good size. Nice and well assorted breakfast. The cafe has a limited dinner menu which could have been better. Would highly recommend the guest house for other travelers.

We ordered coffee and cake. It was ok, but not really recommendable. They have cheesecake and layer cakes.

We made a stop in Nordkjosbotn and went on a lunch in this hotel. There was a nice atmosphere, the meal was very tasty, the staff was kind and the prices were quite convenient for Norway.

You arrive the only way, by land, by buss, car, bike or even walking and do not pass. Here you may have nice tranditional Norwegian food, well prepared and at affirdable prices. Recommended.

Vollan Gjestestue is a 40 minute drive from Tromsø and a visit here takes you far away from the lively city center and it is worth a stop if you are in the area. The atmosphere here is traditional Norwegian with modern wooden interior. There is different seating arrangement available and a play-room in the first room to the left... More

This extremely gluten free aware restaurant had good portion sizes for reasonable prices, when taking into account normal Norwegian prices. It was good traditional Norwegian food and we shared a mutton stew that filled us both. The menu had gluten information on it and they had good tasting gluten free bread. We also ate there for dinner as well as... More

Excellent option to have a rest and some food while driving the E6 to/from Tromso. The cafè serves good food at reasonable prices. Good choice of sweets and savoury. Very kind (and cute) staff. Recommended.
