I have satyed here a few times on tour and the rooms in the 'High building' are fine. Avoid what they call the 'low building' are a real mixed bag with winding corridores, steps and a good distance from reception. NEVER get a single room, awful little box. TV didn't work, only one small flat pillow and not enough room... More

Went here for two nights in July. Lofoten is so beautiful, I really loved it here. The hotel is located in the middle of Svolvær city. I was so lucky to get a room on the top floor with a beautiful view to the main square and the famous "Svolværgeita". The breakfast is wonderful, with everything you need plus a... More

Dear Guest. Thank you for your stay here with us and we are glad you had a pleasant stay. Sorry about the coffee, that will be fixed for your next stay.

We stayed in this hotel with a group of people for two days. First of all the rooms were on the small side but nicely furnished. The hotel is situated in the heart of the town - the hurtigruten are leaving right around the corner. Our package included breakfast and dinner. Breakfast buffet is nicely arranged, there is a wide... More

Three nights in early July. The location is excellent, the facilities are great and the outlook generally is modern. We booked a room almost a year before and since we decided to choose a business room, we got a room in a separate house with a garage view. The room itself was nice. The service was ok, but not particularly... More

Stayed here for four nights last August. A lovely hotel set in a beautiful town. Very clean and nice rooms with amazing views. Breakfast was fantastic - full range of hot and cold food with mochas and healthy drinks. The only issue was the room was very hot and no air conditioning. This didn't spoil our stay too much though... More

Stayed there for a big meeting and is impressive that the service was kept at the same level throughout. The room is small and ok. Complained about a broken device in the toilet and was ignored. The food and the restaurant were excellent. Service is ok. Good place to stay. Arrived one night very late (22:00) from a field visit... More

This hotel has an astonishing location with a view very few Hotels can compare with. With modern facilities I am sure this is the place to go for team building and weddings. Also it is quite cool that we could through our bags from our room and on to Hurtigruta, where we sailed on to Tromsø. If I had to... More

It is worth staying here just for the breakfast. Having stayed in a couple of Thon hotels I have come to the conclusion that this are quality, but budget hotel as they appear to charge extra to watch TV. Everything is Scandinavian clean lines and new but not particuarly plush or large. This is one of the newer nicer ones.... More

Stayed at this hotel for the first time, and the hotel is very nice! The lobby area is great, and modern. The staff was very nice. I loved the room and the view from there too. I will come back someday!
