The best hotel I have ever stayed in. Absolutely gorgeous! Great food! Big spacious room with kitchenette. Amazing view!- I recommended a room with a sea view! I fell in love with Alta! So tranquil and relaxing! Spa on sight- book a day in advance at the reception.

Upsides  - Value for money is good - Views of the fjord - Lobby and lounge area nicely decorated  - Service friendly - Breakfast buffet and also evening food quite nice - the location is good for the view, however a not-very-nice walk away from the 'town enter' so most will prefer to take the car. The town center hasn't... More

Check in was friendly. The girl showed us to our room. Free coffee and tea during your stay. The rooms are as other reviewers have described only our room had the extra bonus of smelling like a sewer. If we kept the bathroom closed it was ok. Just take very short showers ;) It's also pretty noisy. We could hear... More

A lovely small hotel with several cosy sitting areas with flame effect fires. Breakfast is excellent and evening meal is also very good. Dinner buffet available till 7pm looked good but 'tired' - pity it is not available later in the evening with fresh food. Lovely resident's lounge with complimentary tea & coffee all day plus wonderful views of the... More

This hotel was a complete deception. First it is far away from anywhere you can have a dinner or any supermarket where buying food. Second, our room was in the 3rd floor with no elevator. Then the name says "& Spa"... well, it is not included on the price and when we arrived to the hotel it has already been... More

I've been here for their "Friday Steak Buffet" on several occations, and its really good! They'll serve you a steak cooked to your liking, and you help yourself to several types of potato dishes, vegetables, salads and other finger foods and snacks. No other place i've been to make the steak seem like a side dish!

On the pictures it looks quite good but the reality is very different. Our room was quite run-down with a clear lack of maintenance. Bathroom was indescribably ugly and the room included a poorest quality kitchen block. From the room one could not go to the breakfast room without having to go outside around the hotel over a slippery icy... More

My first impression of walking into the gjestegaard was 'wow'. It's so homely and uniquely decorated, it's not like staying in a run of the mill chain hotel. I adored the dining area, candlelit and relaxed with lovely decor. The member of staff showed us to our room which had all the amenities we required and again a lovely nordic... More

We stayed 5 nights whilst on a 'northern lights safari'. The hotel is warm, cosy, comfortable, the food is amazing, and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. We usually like to sample a range of eating and drinking spots whilst we are on holiday, but we didn't feel we had any need to look further on this occasion. We... More

We arrived just before 8.pm.and was met by a very nice and smiling young staffmember. She showed us or room - which was big, best of all - a long bed with clean white sheets, pillows and wonderful duvet. The room was not fancy, but very nice with lots of small lamps, a sofa group a small TV set. Attached... More
