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

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
