Stayed two nights in a single room for a business trip. Rooms in the main wing are okay, but some have views away from the sea. The «Rorbu» houses next to the waterfront are very nice indeed. We used one of them as a meeting/workshop area. Food was healthy and good, we had the infamous «Kveite» (halibut) and it was... More

This place has maybe seen better days, but still has some charme. Built in the 80-ies in plank make the rooms very hot. But hey... when is the next time they will have 28 degrees and sunny? Service is also nice and the food served is good. We stayed in a double room and found the beds comfortable.

We stayed one night, had lunch, dinner and breakfast. Moreover, we used the meeting facilities. The weather was fabulous; after the meetings we went up to Hillesøyfjellet, enjoyed the view, went for a bath both outdoor and indoor - in the sea and in the bath tubs. We brought our own snacks and drinks on the cabin terrace in the... More

We took a couple of nights in a beach cabin at the Arctic Hotel, which was a wonderful change fem three busy days in Tromso. Sommaroy is a little fishing village on an island linked by bridges to the mainland. The cabin was very comfortable, and looked out over little rocky islands, and a nice deck balcony where we watched... More

We stayed here for 1 night as part of a tour group and fell in love with the hotel and the area. The rooms were comfortable, warm and very clean. The food was fresh, tasty and home made. The setting is superb with fantastic views over the sea. Our visit was made more special with a great showing of the... More

Part of a tour group with VJV for one night stay. Rooms not ready on arrival (1230 hours) so all 19 people dispersed until lunch at 1330. My twin-bedded room (15) on first floor of main building was average size, bright and HOT but opening the window quickly cooled it down. No drawers, no storage space other than desk-top, open...

We went to Norway to see the Northern lights. We were blessed by two very clear nights, and by a very active aurora on the second night, absolutely amazing. Sommaroy is on the western most tip of Kvaloya Island. It is a very small fishing village, and the hotel and surrounding holiday villas are the only places to stay. The... More

This hotel grew on me whilst we stayed on a VJV trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights etc. In the context of its location it is worthy of 4 stars and is part of the Rica Group of hotels. The room was comfortable but needed more storage space. We could of done with the heating being on in... More

Location: Definitely the main reason to come all the way here (we drove past some pretty slippery roads in pitch darkness and mad winds). We stayed here from 1-3 Jan, and managed to see some awesome Aurorae on both nights -from the balcony of our seaside cabin. We drove around the island trying to find a good spot to shoot... More

On the west side of Tromsø, a mere 45 minutes from the city centre lies the fascinating pearl of nature, Sommarøy, where you meet chalk-white beaches, cosy coves, holms and reefs that encircle the hotel and everything we have to offer our guests. In close combat with the forces of nature, we facilitate authentic coastal experiences at sea and on land. Activities, wellness, coastal culture and a lively local community – and all the service and facilities you expect of a modern hotel in the kingdom of Ottar. ... more   less
