The location and harbour view are the plus points of the hotel. Without these, it would only be average. The Stressless chairs, made locally, are now dirty and worn and should be replaced. The faux marble wash basin was cracked. The clientele are typical cruisers in large groups. The breakfast was comprehensive. The restaurant also enjoys views of the harbour... More

If you ever wondered if it is possible to ruin a prime location, the answer is here. The Scandic chain, known for comfortable modern rooms and plentyful breakfasts, have here a major exception. The hotel is severely dated (read: outdated) and lost its charm already last century. Have they used a vacuum cleaner since??? The breakfast is a joke, hardly... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed the same. The rooms were well appointed and spacious. I would have preferred if additional pillows were provided. The wifi connectivity was good through the building. The sunset can be viewed just outside the entrance and it was really beautiful.most of the city sights are located in asking distance from the hotel.... More

Water in the bathroom was brown. To our surprise we discovered the same brown water was used to make coffee and tea for the breakfast. The staff was aware of the problem, I asked twice for a coffee made with clean water, but my request was ignored. Even if the hotel is not to blame for the water quality, it... More

We stayed in this Hotel last night. We stayed in Club room which had a limited view of the water. I considered this excellent. Given that the hotel is reasonably price. I would say mid range, the room was large, the shower excellent. I do have a small critism about the step at the door of the bathroom. The room... More

Rooms are large, beds very comfortable and some rooms equipped with Ekornes comfy chairs (they are produced in the region). The breakfast room has a magnificent see view, take your time there. Many restaurant within 10 min walking distance on the water front. Now to the for... More

I thought of giving this hotel two stars (poor) but decided on three as it does have good points. Many rooms have harbour views and as the sea so close you almost feel that you're on a boat. My main complaint is that lots of little things are missing. There is no kettle in the rooms to make your own... More

Clean, tidy, colourful, excellent position. We were given a rather large room and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Abundant continental breakfast in a room with a lovely view on a little harbour. Just a short walk away if you come by Hurtigruten. Nice staff. Recommended!

We spent 4 days at this property as a "home-base" for day trips. We had a harbor view room near the top floor which was very nice. Windows opened fully with a partial sky-light. We even had local seagulls stop by on the window-sill for bread hand-outs. Staff was very friendly and helpful (special compliments to the hotel restaurant staff... More
