Cabin 23 is the last one, with a great view of the sea and cliffs. Decent facilities, and interesting walking around the island. The town also has some interesting sights, so take a look. We had 2 nights here, and glad we did.

We stayed in No. 7. I don't recall having an awful time locating the place which is better than a lot of them. Here's the bottom line: Pros: Better than most with the general outfitting of the interior: TV, microwave, clean, well stocked kitchen, fabulous water pressure. In fact, be careful if you take the handle out of the holder!... More

My wife and I booked to stay in one of the Rorbuers for several nights as part of our honeymoon and were allocated Rorbuer 19. Unfortunately this may be the worst one available as it is of poor quality and is not located on the shoreline or has views of the harbor. For example the curtains in the bedroom didn't... More

Stayed for one night with family. Two bedroomed Rorbuer, and both bedrooms we're en-suite which was great. The setting is lovely, beside the water, with picnic table outside, to relax and take in the quiet reflections across the water. Didn't cook in, as only staying for one night, but the kitchen seemed well equipped, with nice dining table, again overlooking... More

We wanted to stay in a Rorbuer to have an authentic experience. The looks from outside are indeed authentic and this Rorbuer has a great location for views of the harbor. But inside it is cheap ikea furniture ( some not in great shape), no atmosphere or any decoration which would remind us of its historical origins, all white and... More

Home from home, welcoming, clean, wonderful views, bit of a walk to Harbour/restaurants area easy car parking, Nastly Rotten Fish smell if wind blowing from North - but thats not the fault of the Svinoya folks

The Rorbuer are simply delightful! Our booking was handled well, and dinner at the restaurant on the second night was unforgettable. Staff were very helpful and friendly, including giving us all their hints for " must do" activities in Lofoten. Just watch out for the low doorways if you are tall!

My wife and I stayed in a Rorbuer cabin for 2 nights and loved every second of it! The cabin had kitchen, living room with cable tv and 2 rooms which was more than enough for our needs. The views all around were spectacular. The only thing to take into account when booking this property is that if you do... More

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.
