very good location in the centre of Svolvaer right at the harbour. Very modern hotel, got it for a good price. Tasty breakfast but try to be there as soon as possibly, bus of german seniors could disturb your breakfast peace easily. Smaller rooms though clean. Perfect big windows with a sea view.

Very nice view and the building is only some meters from the sea. Very good restaurant, we had calibut. The room could be a bit warmer and it was not very well cleaned. The staff were a bit unwelcoming.

Great service and location. Very good value, and we were absolutely amazed by the breakfast that included pretty much anything you can think of. Free wifi and coffee/tea. We parked the car out in the street, so also free. Also worth mentioning, the view from our room was "svolværgeita":)

We stayed here two nights while touring the Lofoten Islands. Overall this was a clean hotel that was easily accessible to shops, food, tourist attractions, and the main road (E10). We only ate here for breakfast. They have an incredible buffet with one exception - the eggs. Two days, different style of eggs each day, and none were cooked right.... More
