“Nice to visit but impossible to sleep over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Friendly helpful staff . Interesting design. Movie like corridors - dramatic. The facilities are outside in practical wooden cabins . But the furs notwithstanding, it would be more of an ordeal, an endurance test to spend the night even in the Bridal suite

WOW! Very Impressive, did not stay the night, but took the tour. Oh my gosh apart from the amazing sculptures and carvings the staff are so, so friendly, informative and helpful, the owners should be proud of the way that they represent their company

“Truly magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

The are two good reasons to visit Sorrisniva. The Icehotel with all it's sculptures, the chapel and the bar is just amazing. If you have the chance to spend the night I would absolutly do so. The other reason, and this is around the whole year, is the fantastic food. We had dinner with three courses and got two additional appetizers. The taste and presentation was just fantastic. I started with grilled brest of grouse, then panfried cod and finished off with a chocolate mousse tart with chocolate ice cream, cloudberrys and citrus. It is one of the best meals I have had in Norway, and I can not remember to have had cod prepared in a better way. It was fresh out of the cold sea a few miles further north and fried to perfection. Our vaiter was also very attentive, polite and pleasent. He was also very knowledgeable about the place and it's history. At the end of the meal the chef personally came out and asked the guests about the meal. I don't often experience that.
This place has my highest recommendations.

“Great experience and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I visited Sorrisniva as part of a large party of guests (150 or so), and we had a great experience. I understand they normally serve fixed menu, but because there was so many of us the meal was served as a buffet, with som dishes on each table and approximately 40-50 dishes to select from on the buffet. The food was really nice, very tasty and nicely arranged, based on excellent produce. I recommend the reindeer plum, the hare, and lots of fish dishes. The staff was attentive with drinks and cleaning, and the experience at Sorrisniva was a overall great one.
