I really liked my stay here. The cabins/Rorbuer are excellent, very traditional and homely. You have a possibility to make your own food, but the food in the kitchen is wonderful too! I think it is cheap to stay here. Views are perfect, you can see the mountains and water. I Definately recommend to stay here on your visit to... More

An excellent stay here! It is a super cozy and comfortable rorbuer cabin. We were right on the water and had a deck and table with the most beautiful view. We saw the northern lights right from our deck! The cabin itself is one of the nicest cabins I've stayed in Norway. The only thing missing was an oven and... More

I stayed at Reine Rorbuer for four nights as a base to explore the Lofoten Islands. If you're into hiking and other outdoor activities, you'll be in heaven. No words can possibly describe the natural beauty of this place. I'm also a hobbyist photographer, and this place is a photographer's dream.

I stayed 3 nights in that hotel (in Gro rorbu because I've been outclassed) and I've only one word: MAGIC. My rorbu was "above the sea" with 2 terraces" and with a sea view all around. Everything was clean, elegant and of high quality (specially the bathroom). You feel well-being inside or outside. A perfect place to rest, a perfect... More

We spent only one night at Reine Rorbuer, on a Lofoten roundtrip. The location is great, you get the feeling of staying in a «postcard». The rorbu «Inge» was very comfortable and you can park your car just outside. The rorbu had a spacious living room/kitchen and two small bedrooms with bunk beds and a nice bathroom. The sitting area... More

Our family stayed here for 5 nights, July 18-23, 2014. We stayed in the 4 bedroom Sverre (#16). The setting is absolutely awesome. The cabins are rustic/nice and the kitchen was stocked well enough with pots and pans that we could easily cook. The stove was 4 burners..(there is a local grocery, and a well-stocked Coop grocery a short car... More

We're at Reine Rorbuer right now and it's great. We had one night in 18, which was clearly really newly finished and super nice. Then we switched to 3, which is closer to the water but has a less expansive view and is a bit more rustic feeling. It doesn't have a TV. 18 does. We switched because we were... More

My wife was skeptical when I said I wanted to stay here: "a FISHERMAN'S cabin???" We often have different opinions on lodging; I want local charm; she wants modern conveniences...at least a modern bath (just point me to the nearest tree!). This place scored for both of us. I didn't realize when booking -these cabins are privately owned, and they... More

When visiting the Lofoten Islands you must stay in a traditional Fisherman's Cabin or 'Rorbuer' and I would recommend Reine. Located amongst Fjords and mountains it is peaceful and stunning. The cabins are well furnished, comfortable and modern with everything you need. We had LIV (22). Out of 1 Living Room window we had a view of the sea and... More

The staff here are very friendly and helpful. For those who do not know, a Rorbuer pronounced something like "rrrrbrrr" by the Norwegians, is a converted fishing cabin made into tourist accommodation. Usually painted red, these rorbuers are immaculate cabins with baths and heated floors and are extremely comfortable. Plus, you are amongst the most stunning scenery in Lofoten, if... More
