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

This is my second time staying in Reine Rorbuer and I enjoyed every moment of my stay there! The cabin is very cosy and lovely. It feels like home, where we can relax, laze on the sofa, listening to music, enjoying the awesome, dramatic scenery from the living room's window. They even have kitchenette, fully equipped with utensils, plates, ....... More

Lovely grass-roofed wooden cabin in scenic village setting with views of the sea and cliff. It is spacious, outfitted with kitchenette, TV and wi-fi. Friendly receptionist. The climax of our stay was being able to witness the magical Northern Light displays for one and a half hours on 31 Aug, right outside our cabin (2nd room next to the sea).... More

We had a wonderful stay on September 7th, in cabin number 33, "Artur", which faces north to the harbor, and the iconic scenery surrounding you in every direction. The 2 bedroom cabin was very well appointed with a tweed couch & chair, a nice dining table, a kitchenette (no oven in Artur though), and cozy beds with duvets and tweed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the western part of Lofoten, at the mouth of Reinefjord, lies the fishing village of Reine, where the majestic Lofoten peaks and the Artic Ocean are our next-door neighbours. In the summer you will enjoy the long days and the Midnight Sun and in the winter the short days with spectacular weather and the Northern Lights. All of our 22 cabins are newly restored and combine the atmosphere of their old use as fishermen's dwellings with modern comfort. All cabins, or 'Rorbuer' as they are called, have their own fully equipped kitchen for those who want to prepare their own freshly caught fish. Wireless internet connection available. Open all year round. ... more   less
