This hotel houses an excellent restaurant. Fish (kveite), whale (hvalbiff) and entrecôte tasted great and were beautifully presented. Nice views towars the bay. We only dined there, so did not try the rooms or breakfast. Recommend it to all who wants a good restaurant.

This hotel is centrally located and right next to the Port. If you are a Hurtigruten fan, this is the ideal place to be as from the rooms you get an excellent view of the boats. The furnitures are not the newest and the bathroom is extremely small, but the room was clean. The breakfast buffet offered a basic selection.... More

We are booked into this hotel as a birding base for Hornoya Island and the surrounding areas. While the room we have is huge (Rm. 205) with a couch, a large coffee table, two lounge chairs, a desk, fridge (that you can actually put food in and not crammed with expensive drinks you can't move without buying them as in...

Spent 2 nights here in early march, we had a lovely view of the harbour from our room. Staff were very helpful and most accommodating. A constant supply of free coffee, lovely warm rooms and excellent food, their cod with a seafood sauce and vegetables is the best fish dish I have ever tasted anywhere and would definitely recommend.

We recently spent two nights at this hotel. We had a ground floor room overlooking the harbour. The view was great, especially if you are a birder. Food was very good and location excellent for exploring the island of Vardo. Staff were helpful. One minor downside was that the rooms were quite cold despite good heating. The windows seemed drafty?... More

Overlooking the harbour, wonderful food beautifully presented, continuously available hot drinks, the most helpful and knowledgeable reception staff, a gem at the far eastern end of the wilds of Norway. The rooms although basic, are spacious and warm, as is the shower - an essential when it's -15C outside! The reception staff (reception is staffed 24/7 as far as we... More

We visited the hotel with a wildlife group, and were very professionally accommodated. The hotel has a slightly intimidating, barrack-like character to its rooms and entrance, but it was comfortable, and the catering was unexpectedly good.Despite its monopoly the hotel is very good value.

According to one reviewer it is the remotest hotel in Europe, but he seems to have forgoten that Europe ends at the Urals, (indeed Novya Zemlya is the most Eastern place in Europe). It isn't the coldest either, as Vardo is surrounded by the sea (it is reached by a 3km tunnel) and is surprisingly warm in winter. The nearest... More

When there is no choice you must deal with what you have. It is a very simple hotel, with no luxury, but with the confort of a good fireplace where you can get well after arriving from the cold weather. The restaurant is a cafeteria sitle, but the food is acceptable. The emploiees are always trying to solve everything
