Stayed there in august 2010 for a tour of Lofoten.
We stayed only 1 night and didn't spend much time in Å.
We had some difficulties finding this place, but just continue to drive until you have to enter the "end of road"-tunnel (only parking space and turning point on the other side of the tunnel). Å Rorbuer is a few hundred meters immediately to the left of the tunnel entrance (from the north side of the tunnel).
The rorbu was quite nice looking and felt like cabins, sparsely furnished and only "cabin"-clean as opposed to hotel-clean (found a used and forgotten underwear under the bed, and that didn't improve my impression of the cleanliness). There was a bedroom with 2 beds on top of eachother (not double) and a bathroom that wasn't up to hotel standard (but might be described more like cabin standard). The living room and kitchen was ok and spacious, but the cabin-simple-style continued here. There was a balcony outside just over the water which added to the positive impression of the place.
The reception building seemed nice with some café/restaurant, but it was apparently closed for the season. We wanted to eat out late and had to drive to a restaurant a few kilometers north to get anything. We wanted to make some food in the rorbu but everything was closed.
It's a quite ok place to stay and the area was beautiful. Would have been better if we had managed to buy groceries so that we could have made dinner in the cabin in order to enjoy the rorbu at night also.
