This is a nice hotel. We booked it mainly because of its proximity to the harbor. We arrived in the evening with the Hurtigruten which docks in front of the hotel. We travelled around in the next few days and had second thoughts about booking the whole stay in the same hotel. You might want to book only the first... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our holiday (a Hurtigruten cruise which comes into port just around the corner from the hotel) and loved the modern design of both the hotel's communal areas and the room. The bar/lounge area is welcoming and has a very cosy corner with a table that has a built-in log fire... More

Fancy breakfast with fresh ingridients and enormous variety to choose. I would seriously recomend this hotel if you're looking for a new, fresh design place to relax... More

Hotel is centrally located, close to the ferry pier and all the attractions. Rooms are comfortable and breakfasts really nice. Internet worked well and the overall service was also very good. The bathroom could be bigger and also i was missing safe box in the room. But overall very positive impression!

We arrived here late one evening after a difficult ferry crossing. There was some renovation work going on but it was not too disruptive. The bar meals were very good. Breakfast was excellent with freshly cooked omelettes and lots of nice bread and a whole variety of hot and cold food. The restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. The... More

This hotel has a fantastic location, pleasant staff, and good views- but the beds are TERRIBLE! Among the worst of any hotel ever. A soft mushy mattress pad over what seems to be an old futon base. We had to leave early so didn't get the buffet breakfast, but they packed up a huge breakfast that was ready for our... More

I stayed here back in mid-September 2014 with my parents: 1. The service at this hotel is amazing!! Thank you to the kind man at reception (a bald roundish fellow) who checked us in with a complimentary upgrade to the big family apartments next door. This staff member even lent his personal phone to us to make sure we had... More

We stayed 2 nights at Thon. Located in central Svolvaer with restaurants and some shops nearby. Room is clean. We were lucky to get a room with good view and could even see Svolvaer Goat with binocular! Every room comes with binocular. But in some area of the room, we could hear echo when we talked. Breakfast is the best... More

This hotel is perfectly located in the centre of Svolvaer next to the Hurtigrute dock. It is therefore ideal when travelling with the Hurtigrute ferry as the distance from boat to the lobby is a very short walk. Breakfast was excellent with all the choice you can ask for and a cook ready to make your special omelette or pancake... More
