Summer accommodation in the Lofotens books up quickly, and we ended up staying at Tyskhella Rorbuferie because it was pretty much the last place available online. We booked a two bedroom unit (two small bedrooms, a large living space with a kitchen, and a rather basic bathroom), which could best be described as comfortable no-frills accommodation. It's the sort of... More

Accommodations were going fast in the Svolvaer region and this was the only place with 3 bedrooms we could get. Kabelvag is a suburb of Svolvaer, located alongside of the bay. Our particular unit was on the ground floor of a building built into a hillside, and had the feeling of living in a cave, Although it was rather dark,... More

Tyskhella Rorbuferie offers ok accommodations for a holiday in coastal Lofoten. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment in central Kabelvaag. Showers, a small kitchen with what you need, a roomy every day room and ok bathroom facilities. Two fully equipped bedrooms and ordinary beds were about average standard. Average TV and free Wi-fi. Rooms are spacious. Views are good, but... More

My two companions and I were booked at a rorbuer at their central location. When we arrived the leasing office was closed. Following a phone call, the leasing agent arrived to tell us there was a problem with our reserved rorbuer, but that he would put us up at another of their properties in town. This turned out to be... More

We booked in the 2 bedroom apartment & was quite unsure what to expect after seeing such mixed reviews. However in our experience we were pleasantly surprised. It was a nice hut overlooking the water (room 205). The outlook from our balcony was stunning & luckily there were not many cars in the way blocking the view. As described on... More

The room is based on street level, direct access from parking lot. The picture used in this ad does not show the new block of a building that is built in front of the "Rorbu". No view at all due to this building. Room 101 is not a "rorbu" - more a basement apartment. 7 beds available , but only... More

There are a couple of things that the Tyskhella Rorbuferie should make clearer when you book with them. firstly the little building at the end of the row of cabins with the company name carved on a big sign above it is not the reception. The reception is actually in a building 200 meters away down a different street which... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tyskhella Rorbuferie is situated in the centre of Kabelvag, overlooking the Vestfjord and Kabelvag. Tyskhella is an old building dating back to about 1905, and built by Johan Tysk. Originally, and up until 1993, the building was used as a fisherman’s cabin and tackle shed. In 1996 the site was taken over by new owners and restored, upgraded and converted into a commercial overnight accommodation business in compliance with today’s demands on facilities and standard. Tyskhella has an excellent agreement with Kabelvag Hotel with regard to the serving of food and drink to our guests. The hotel is only 30 metres from Tyskhella. The resort includes 12 rorbu cabin style apartments in three different sizes. Each is of good standard and adapted to suit wheelchair users. All of our rorbu cabin apartments have separate entrances, kitchens and bathrooms. ... more   less
