Good value considering the location. Nice rooms (too warm at night though). Plenty of bathrooms in each cabin. Excellent wifi everywhere. Charming and helpful staff. Perfect English spoken everywhere in Norway. Excellent customer service.

Hi, There is an airportbus that will wait for all passengers and it will drop you off at Coal Miners Cabins. If you don`t want to take the bus then there will always be taxis standing outside as well. Hope this will help!
