We stayed here as a part of a photography tour and how fortunate we were. This place is so beautiful. We had a lovely 1 bedroom cabin overlooking the fishing harbour. The cabins are well maintained and heated efficiently. They have heated floors in the bathroom and piping hot showers. We cooked in our place each night, everything you need... More

I can't imagine a better location in the Lofoten to ride out a serious gale while watching the water crash over the rocks with the fishing boats rocking in the harbor. We stayed on two different nights within a four day span with a beach camping trip in the middle. Both cabins were very comfortable and the views tremendous, even... More

Beautiful location and spotless well appointed cabins. I was very happy with everything apart from the shabby reception I received from one of the staff members after arriving later in evening after an ardous 7 hr bus trip and finding the reception locked. I could clearly hear there were people inside and after knocking for a few minutes someone eventually... More

This is an excellent place to stay. It's close to Reine, yet far enough from it to give you a sense of disconnect. They have a lot of Rorbuer, some on the water, some not. Some 2 bedrooms, some one. Go through the website and pick the right one for you. Ofcourse it would be great to be on the... More

Here is, in my opinion, the secret of great vacations at Lofoten. Take your friend with you. Rent a car. Take a good camera and an action camera with you. Stay at Eliassen Rorbuer. Enjoy Clean and tidy apartment-houses. We had a kitchen in ours, and there was a supermarket nearby (about 1,5 km away) - so you can easily... More

The rorbuer is located in the middle of a fjord close to reine and a. The cottage is clean and very comfortable, has a lot of free space available even for two people. You can bring your own linens and clean the cottage before leaving if you want to save some money. staff is kind but in low season reception... More

For our 40th wedding anniversary, we wanted to do something special. As we had an Australian guest with us, we contacted Eliassens and reserved a cabin. Bear in mind, this is Rorbu, not a luxury hotel. But as a rorbu, this is very nicely placed on beautiful Hamnøy in breathtaking Lofoten. We just loved our stay, and the dinner and... More

Very good equipment for superior rooms...unfortunately not all with optimal view....nice and quiet rorbuer village globally with Anita's shop (fish and high quality burgers) and Coop very close.. Walking till Reine is nice but not convenient on the road.....those who like to fish can do from home....

The rorbuers are recently updated and modernised to a high standard - we stayed in a one bedroom 'superior' rorbuer but were a little disappointed to have no real view out over the water or towards the hills - it seems that the views are 'reserved' for the two bedroom rorbuers. I would advise carefully checking in advance to understand... More
