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

The service attained here is as horrible as the staff! Wish I could give a ZERO to AltaFjord's service. Though the view is quite good,the hotel staff and its service will make your stay totally dreadful!

This was in best place in Alta, if you want to wake up in morning and see beautiful icy mountains and sea. It was looking like some painting. Easy to get amazing pictures from here. Beds were good to sleep and everything was clean and breakfastroom was so nice and different lookin. Nice way different. :) I can recommend this... More

We stayed for one night only on our way to Lavan. Landed in Alta at 22.30 and arrived at the hotel at 23.30 hrs. Welcome received at the hotel by Elena was fantastic. Whilst her shift ended at 23.00 hrs she still served us drinks till 01.30 hrs and told us all about the region etc... Rooms were very. Comfortable... More

Fantastic situated right next to the water and look at the hills, snow and midnight sun. Outside the hotel looks like no much, but inside it is unique. Cosy, or as we say in Denmark "Hyggeligt", with individual rooms, and a feeling of "being at home". Great staff (owners) and a nice meal and fully nordic breakfast. Thumbs up !... More

We've been here last week and it was a very good staying. I cannot understand why people write bad thing in this hotel. It could for sure be better, but as many other things. If you're going to Alta you can for sure book here.

Biz it was again for me in early March. Alta on schedule, inbound from Kirkenes by Wideroe. According to the airports website there is a bus service downtown available. Sure it is, but with the only movement at all during this time they told me that the bus runs only for larger planes and definitely not for the small Wideroe... More
