The cabin was perfect, nice view, clean, comfortable, good facilities.. Really cozy! And everything was quite new. But I found really strange that they charge you for using bed lines and towels set, and all the bed lines are for single beds even you are gonna use it in a double bed ( in this case you might use two...

The best scenery during our trip in lofoten. Free wi-fi, but the connection have a lot of trouble. Well equipped kitchen facilities We didn't use any facilities like rowing boats, bicycle, fishing equipment because its not available during winter They charged us a few NOK after check out, for cleaning service

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in late December 2014. The cabin is very nice. Well maintained and comfortable. The owners were very easy to communicate with. Be aware that this part of the Lofoten Islands is pretty much close during the winter. No restaurants so bring food or be prepared to visit the grocery store. We... More

Excellent location, very pictorial place. House is cosy and clean, staff is very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is an oppotunity for improvement as it's a little bit slow and unstable. Thouhg it's not a key thing in place like this :)

Hamnøy has an extremely lovely setting and the view from our cabin Torbua was wonderful. We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the peace, quiet and beautiful scenery. Having done our research, we were prepared for the relative lack of service and less than perfect beds (but found them quite comfortable after all). The wifi for some strange reason... More

Cabin 23 is pretty modern inside, with great views across the bay. Sea eagles are on the small island, and the many cats stalk around the cabins. This is a very small island, and has been said before, the road works, which are about 3/4 mile away, create a min wait time of at least 30 min, but be prepared... More

Pros: Stunning view and peaceful when the construction crews were on break. The cabin covered the most essential items except for some glaring oversights (see Cons). Internet available if you manage to find the right hot spot for reception. Nice touch having the old photographs of the fishermen. We stayed in No. 2. Cons: I can understand (sort of) why... More

I stayed for one night in Hamnøy during a short cycling weekend in Moskenesøya. It is an easy bike ride of 10km from Moskenes harbour (beware tunnels and potential of traffic on roads). I stayed in the hostel rorbuer. I had my own single room and used a shared bathroom with shower. Plenty of hot water available and the shower... More

In spite of a beautiful location on the island of Hamnoy, and attractive rorbus and boats renting, the service quality is poor and bedding uncomfortable. During our stay, WiFi worked only in the reception desk. The value for money is thus pretty poor. Moreover, mind the the building work of the tunnel of Hamnoy, the road can remained blocked between... More
