It's a pleasant hotel with great scenery. However the hotel is currently under major reconstruction with work starting at 7am everyday. You will be woken up by drilling and hammering. So probably best to avoid for a few months if you want a relaxing break. The reconstruction looks good though so when finished it's worth a visit. Although there is...

We were a little disappointed by our stay here in December in a hotel room. It was a family room but very small for 2 adults and a child. Basically the entire space was taken up by the beds and there was no view from the window that looked out onto the side of the hotel. There is a living...

Thank you for your honest feedback, We were sorry that the family rooms were not to your expectation. We are almost finished with the expansion of the hotel (1st April 2017) and we apologize again that there was no view to the Northern Lights from inside. All our new rooms have balconies and we now have three suites with two...

We booked a whale watching tour one week in advance. Annoyingly we were told that our tour was overbooked when we arrived although we had a booking confirmation. The staff at the reception was not helpful at all and denied any faults. Unfortunately you can't rely on your booking confirmation.

First of all, we are really sorry for your experience with whale safari. This is all our fault, and caused by a technical failure with our main boat. We had a replacement boat with lower capacity, and ordered another boat for your group. While we where waiting for replacement boat number two, the weather had changed and the supplier chose...

My husband and I stayed here in December, we stayed in cabin number 46 overlooking the beautiful harbour. During our stay we saw spectacular views of the northern lights from our cabin balcony, went on a whale watching tour provided by the hotel and saw humpback and Orca whales, and tried the delicious reindeer while sat by an open fire....

we stayed at a different place but came here for drinks / food several times. they have a surprisingly (for norway and this being remote location) good selection of red wines.

The Sommarøy Arctic Hotel has rooms and cabins, we stayed in a cabin. First impressions always count when checking into a place, the SAH is currently undergoing major building work so a large area outside is a building site. The Reception wasn't staffed when we arrived but she arrived a short time later. Her attitude though was indifferent and unhelpful...

Hello and thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear you think the food was excellent! Also good to hear that you enjoyed our seaside cabins. We apologize so much that you were told, that you could not drive to the seaside cabin. This must be a misunderstanding from our part, due to the construction work period. There...

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 !

In close combat with the forces of nature, we facilitate authentic coastal experiences at sea and on land.
