We stayed here for two nights off season and had a really relaxing break. The rooms were great - simple, clean, comfortable and the staff were very approachable. They helped us locate walking trails around the island so we were able to explore. The restaurant is the only one around (except for a little cafe over the bridge which was... More

My wife and I had a 5 day, 4 night visit to northern Norway to attempt to see the Northern Lights and do some whale watching. After my wife did some extensive research, we chose the Sommaroy Arctic Hotel, and we are very glad that we did. We booked direct flights from Gatwick to Tromso with Norwegian Airlines(only available at... More

Stayed one night for some northern light spotting and sightseeing around the Sommarøy/Tromsø area. Very nice and friendly staff. Rooms are spacious and with good beds. Nice design and furniture ! Missed things like a coffee maker, wine glass, minibar etc but im sure the reception would help you with all this if needed. Great food in the restaurant. Breakfast... More

We didn't stay here, but we did eat here one lunchtime. They provided an "all you can eat buffet" for lunch. It was very good and even catered for my gluten intollerent nephew on request. Very beautiful location. £20 adults and £10 children.

We wanted to see the northern lights and this place sounded perfect. It's a simple 45 min drive from Tromso and is absolutely stunning. We stayed in the hotel for the first night then spent two in a sea cabin. If your budget allows, book a cabin - you won't be disappointed. We saw the northern lights 3 nights out... More

Sommaroy is a small village west of Tromso at the end of narrow winding road. There are lots of vacation cabins and interesting harbor inlets. We stayed in one of the cabins on a small inlet. It had 2 bedrooms a private bathroom a fully equipped kitchen and a nice deck over the water. We bought groceries in a small... More

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.
