The house at Gamlekaien is believed to have been built in around 1770, and became a ‘public house and inn’ by royal decree in 1771. It is believed to be the oldest building in Skudeneshavn. As well as being an inn, it has been used as a general store, medicine shop, customs post and telegraph office over the course of its 250-year history. For the last 100 years, it has been a dwelling house. Ellen Solstad bought the property in 2022, and following extensive refurbishment, Gamlekaien is now reopening as a guest house. It has six unique guest rooms, each with its own bathroom. All the rooms are individually and beautifully decorated. It has a dining room with space for up to 24 guests, and a library and lounge. At Gamlekaien, you can enjoy a rich selection of books and contemporary art. The manager serves up a delicious homemade breakfast from the kitchen. Make yourself at home!

Getting there:
If you arrive by car, you can use a car park at the old ferry quay or beside the library in the centre of Skudeneshavn. Both car parks are a short walk from Gamlekaien. If you come in your own boat, you can moor at the quay just outside.
