This hotel is an excellent base if your coming to Batsfjord for birding or wildlife photography. The hotel is well located, close to the main sites and a short walk from the village centre. Parking facilities are right outside the main door. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and spacious. The food is...

We where only eating dinner at the hotels restaurant, not sleep over. When we arrived the hotel reception, the elderly lady which was supposed to greet us at the reception didn't even look up from what ever she did behind the desk.

A comfortable, warm and clean hotel that did just fine for two nights of a bird watching tour of Finland and Norway. An excellent base from which to explore the area. The immediate area was a bit bleak but surrounding area fantastic.

...of providing comfortable, warm and pleasant accommodation in a remote part of Norway. Used as fall back Hotel when the Hurtigruten ferry cant make ssome of the small harbours. When this happens breakfast may run thin (as in our case).

We stayed at the Polar Hotel for one night last week after disembarking from the Hurtegruten at midnight. We arrived with the hotel closed down for the night but with the front door open and our room key left on the reception desk. Trust comes with the territory in this part of the world. Our room was fairly basic but...

When travelling to arctic places you expect to pay premium prices and I understand the necessity of this and I have no qualms about recommending this hotel. It doesn't look great from outside and is positioned in a way that doesn't allow for any views of the harbour & fjord [a real missed opportunity] but it's easy to find and...
