Nice well run hotel on the waterfront a few minutes from the centre of town with a great view of the harbour. Nice comfortable rooms and good wifi. The staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast.

We had a very nice one night stay in June. The room was small but attractive, with wooden floor and a nice view (and balcony) towards the inter harbour. The breakfast is served with sea view, and had a very good selection. We stayed at Henningsvær Bryggehotel later, and the standard is very much better at Scandic in Svolvær. A... More

Regular 3-4 star hotel with nice surroundings - very close to the ocean. Breakfast staff with limited Norwegian language. Ordered one 180+cm double bed, got two single beds that were not linked together. Romantic? Not at all!

The hotel was offered no more than an average experience with a premium price stamp. Small, but adequate rooms. The service was ok. An irritating aspect with the breakfast service was that they started to remove food from the buffet before the announced closing time. This happened every morning. On the plus side: Free parking and a convenient and cosy... More

We loved the hotel. Our room had a balcony over the water looking at the beautiful, surrounding mountains. The rooms are clean and simple, on the small side, but well-designed. The bathroom has a heated floor, great for drying wet hiking boots. The staff were nice and helpful. The buffet food is pretty much the same everyday. This is something... More

A bit pricy. A bit small rooms. Good bed. Plus for tea coffee making facilities in room even it wasn't refilled with teabags during the stay. Breakfast Ok. Restaurant stay away. Sub standard and expensive.

The location is really good. The rooms are pretty big, but need to be renewed soon. Short walk to town. The staff is helpful and offers excellent service. The breakfast is amazing. Try the smoked salmon!!!

First of all, the review here is not about the town Svolvær. The town has good restaurants, breathtaking nature, positive people etc. This hotel is a standard 3 star hotel, but the problem is that they charge you as a 4 star hotel - and they deliver in many ways as a 2 star hotel. I was there for a... More
