Breakfast not as good as they like to tell you, and the garage is dangerous, they even take money to let you risk your car down there. If this hotel wasnt in Lofoten it would have been out of business. Dont go there, you will be disappointed.

Lucky to be able to see the faint aurora over the harbour right infront of the hotel. Easy access from the lobby to the waterfront. Room was comfortable and the breakfast was as pleasurable as commented by others. Liked the freshly squeezed orange juice from the machine. Experienced cod fish in blueberry sauce. The central kitchenette served freshly fried eggs...

I just spent a long weekend at this hotel, and I have no hesitations about giving it my highest recommendations. Staff was service-minded and accommodating, the room absolutely stunning (free upgrade!), evening restaurant great. The breakfast buffet is a story of its own: just AMAZING! It has actually won the 2016 award for the best hotel breakfast buffet in the...

The service at this hotel was so friendly and genuine. We spoke with Petter and Espen and both of them were genuinely interested in us having a lovely stay. Petter gave us a room on the 8th floor which gave us a sensational view of the town square with the quay and the top of the city and the mountains...

The breakfast here is AMAZING! I would say each item on the menu is a taste sensation. The view is stunningly beautiful. They keep their high standard regardless of number of guests visiting their hotel. Definitely a place we want to come back to! The rooms are modern and very comfortable. The cleaning is rapid and not so thorough, but...

Quiet and small fishing town with restaurants and convenient store just a few minutes walk from Hotel. Surprisingly there is a Chinese Restaurant around the Hotel where we had dinner.

Superb room. Next to the Hurtigruten Pier and Bus stop. Staff were so helpful. There was a superb breakfast, fruit, eggs, delicious bread, yoghurts and a bonus of cod liver oil or vitamin tablets. Nothing was too much trouble. Relaxed atmosphere. Can't wait to go back.
