I was here with a photo group in february and are know back with a ski group. The rorbu is great, customer service is always on top and the restaurant Børsen is after my meaning one of Lofotens best if not The best. This is a propper feel good place.

Rorbuers are fishermen's cabins beside the water, and much more fun to stay in than the average hotel room. There is a bedroom (small but adequate), bathroom with shower and a living/dining room (with kitchenette) to spread out in. They are very warm and cosy, and a short walk from the hotel restaurant, and a 10 minute walk over the... More

My wife decided for her 70th birthday to visit the Lofoten Islands and I booked an individual package tour with Simply Sweden. The highlight of our eight-day tour was the four nights we spent at Svinoya Rorbuer. We arrived by boat from Harstad and it was dark when we reached Svinoya Rorbuer, so we were unable to take cognizance of... More

These little cabins are really warm and cosy and very inviting to come back to after a day out in the Norwegian cold, and the little island on which they are situated is very interesting to walk around, with beautiful views. Only criticism of ours was that the bedroom was very small, with scarcely room for anything apart from the... More

The cabins are in the style of old fisherman's cabins, but with all mod con. Very comfortable, quiet and very warm (we were there in winter), large sitting/kitchen area and surprisingly good shower in the bathroom. Spotlessly clean. Bedrooms are twins and a little small, but very comfortable - might not be if you're very tall (I'm not). Superb views... More

This was our first time so far north - November snows & minus temperatures. But the welcome at reception, our little cabin, & each meal service at the restaurant was genuinely so warm. We were there for 3 nights taking in a rib boat ride, an eve out to see northern lights & daytrip to Viking museum & fishing villages.... More

We stayed in a one-bed cabin for 5 nights. We were pleasantly surprised how cosy and comfortable the cabin was with a great little, well equipped kitchen and underfloor heating in the shower room. We had amazing views from the lounge/kitchen and the bedroom - we endlessly watched the to and firing of the fishing boats and sea eagles circling.... More

This is our second time staying in Svinoya Rorbuer. The stay experience in Svinoya Rorbuer beats staying in a typical hotel room nearby. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin. The cabin has a cozy living room, with dining table and kitchen facilities. Great if you would like to cook meals yourself. Parking of the rental car is convenient and... More

Our travel agent recommended an all inclusive package here for 3 nights. It included the transports from airport, accomodatons (which were a neat experience), dinners on property and breakfasts, along with northern lights hunt, viking history and nature safari I believe. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate the nights we were going to look at lights; but we did see them... More

Svinoya Rorbuer has a good number of fisher men's cabins with good sauna facility. It has a good view of the town, including the Pier for visiting cruise boats. Sunset was very nice too. Morning walk at this large complex of cabins was very pleasant too. Dinner at their restaurant Borsen Spiseri was enjoyable too.
