Finding such a lovely hotel in such a remote setting was a surprise. Decor and food especially good. Staff generally work very hard to be helpful and provide an excellent standard of service.

Just one night prior to our expedition cruise and it was a good introduction to the Arctic. Nothing extraordinary about the room but it was very clean with a good bed and nice view towards the harbour. We enjoyed the stroll down to the “town” and back in light snow. It was fun to get out and walk around so... More
