The location of this hotel is unique, 1 hour's drive from Tromsø through a very beautiful landscape. What makes this hotel unique is the location, and the staff. Also, the food served at the hotel is fine, as well as the rooms. Choose this hotel for the location, the views and the enthusiastic staff.

I have spent a few nights in a sea cabin with my family in late January (2012) while hunting the northern lights. This place offers an amazing and unique experience and it is just perfect for seeing the Aurora (if you are lucky). We have been lucky and I think this was the greatest travel experience I have ever had.

A group of friends made a day trip from Tromso to Sommaroy at the end of June. Was surprised to see sandy beaches North of the Arctic Circle. The hotel has a great restaurant on the water ! Beautiful, sunny day so we all ate out on the deck. Food was good ! Good menu and reasonably priced !

Friendly staff. Welcoming good food and a nice environment for a walk which was a nice change after cycling all day. The hotel was currently renovated which took away a little bit of its charm. Still a nice place to stay. The three course dinner which was included in our cycle tour was excellent and even a bit too much... More

We spend a couple of nights in a seaside cabin in February. The cabin had a lovely location right on the beach, providing privacy. Typical basic Nordic style, basically all wood, with good layout. It was fully equipped for self-catering and had a small sauna fitting 2. It is just a few 100 yards to the main building and restaurant... More

We almost missed this hotel as it looked a bit like a building site due to the work on the extension. Once inside the door we received a warm welcome and a secure place to put our bikes. After settling into our spacious and comfortable room we had a good explore of Sommaroy before dinner. Sommaroy is magical, lots of... More

On the positive side, the hotel is located away from the main city and the drive along the coastline is just breathtaking. The hotel provides all amenities. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and give you great scenic view. On the flip side, its located around 55 kms from the city centre, a driving time of approx 1 hr which may... More

I visited Arctic hotel for a few days while driving around norway. Staying here was the true meaning of peace and tranquility.
