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.

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
