We recently spent 3 nights at the Henningsvaer Rorbu and had a wonderful time. The cabins are authentic and accommodated 4 adults easily. We stayed in a rorbu on the front overlooking the harbour and it had the most stunning views out of the windows. As we had travelled from Australia we did not have linen but they were provided...

Stayed there for a long weekend. First time in Henningsvær and we got a rorbu with 2 seperate bedrooms and two baths. The rorbus was clean and well equipped. The beds comfortabely and the wiev from our living room was fantastic. Henningsvær is a exotic place with spectacular nature sorrounding the place. The staff was very helpful and service minded...

Friendly Ingvill welcomed us – Gutteklubben - to the Rorbu. The accommodation was very clean and picturesque with a priceless view of the Vestfjorden. We had booked a fishing trip with the Tom and his fishing boat. Weather shifted from calm and sunny to snow and stormy, while we caught as much big Skrei (cod) as we ever wanted, more... More

A rorbu is per definition a small wooden house for fishers to sleep in during the fishing season. Therefore, don't expect hotel standard - the whole point of staying in a rorbu is to enjoy a simpler, but comfortable standard on a dock by the seaside. This place has a genuine feel to it, and it's not that expensive by... More

If you have traveled all the way to Henningsvaer, Lofoten, expecting to be spoiled in luxury then you could have saved yourself the expense ....... you are definitely in the wrong place. However, if you come to experience something unique, something few people get to see in their lives (= exclusive), then you are at the right place. Some 20... More

I'm surprised I even booked this place after having read the poor reviews. I agree that it's overpriced and service is really poor. Wifi did not work in our cabin, reception did not keep it's opening hours, they wanted to charge for the stay before even showing you the cabin etc. Cabin was simple but ok. Having said this, its...

Indifferent to our needs, no smile, unengaged, no service at all! Considering the price, not value for money. We will not stay at Henningsvær Rorbuer again. But Henningsvær is really charming, with great people and worth the visit.

ok, i've known it would be 250 euro/night for the cabin since i made the reservation beforehand. i didn't really realize how much it was at the time. my fault. but the impression we've had from their website was that it would be something really special. but not even towels or bed linen were included. they would have charged extra...

Cabin 16 is on a tiny island all on its own. You get a motor boat as part of the deal to get to and fro and to use to take little trips round the local islands (life jackets included )! The cabin has the most marvellous views across the water to the high mountains of the Lofoten. A very... More

We considered staying here during our stay in Henningsvær, so we went to the reception to look at the place and ask a few questions. The woman at the front desk was so rude and ignorant that we turned right around and found a different place to stay...
