Excellent view, delicous breakfastand friendly staff. The rooms are cosy and nice decorated. We enjoyed our stay very much and would not hesitate to go back. Highly recommended😊 The hotel is in the center of Svolvær, perfect location. One negative thing is the parking. They have a limited amount of parking lots, which resulted in driving around to find available... More

I stayed three nights at Thon Hotel Lofoten during a business trip. The hotel is situated right on the harbor, providing spectacular views from the rooms positioned ocean front. Check in was efficient and friendly. The room was spacious and well layed out with a huge shower. The sink side amenities where in fixed refillable containers rather than disposable mini... More

A fantastic hotel. The scenery is absolutely stunning, the food is exceptional and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The room was lovely as well, with a great view. This was a really good hotel experience. I had both a dinner and breakfast I'll remember for a long, long time. Remember to ask the reception about tips for hiking... More

We had many reasons for booking this hotel, and no. 1 being that it was close to the Hurtigruten landing point. In addition, breakfast was included, and in such an expensive country, this is a big plus point! Our room was high up on the 9th floor, with a lovely view of the fjord and the boats below. Breakfast was... More

This hotel is just 100 meters from where Hurtigruten dock in Svolvaer. As part of our latest Hurtigruten trip we had 2 nights staying here. Fortunately we were first of the ship & hurried along to get a good "book in," there were approximately 120 of us for the staff to process. I understand that this went quickly with no... More

Hi and thank you for your feedback. I am glad you had a spotless room, and that you enjoyed the view. When it comes to check in, we should be prepared to handle 120 check-ins without any problem and it sounds like it went without any problems. We try our best to satisfy everybody and unfortunately the beds where too... More

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

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!
