Really good place on the sea. Clean and nice. Very good service. Amazing view. Easy parking. Small and essential rooms, but more than good, nice building. Big reception. We are ok with this hotel. Seagulls, and sailboat from the balcony (ask for it). Reception is really efficient. Still to taste breakfast but I'm sure it will be good.

I really liked this hotel. I stayed three nights and had a room on the ground floor with a balcony inches from the water of the harbor, which I enjoyed every evening. Fun to watch Hurtigruten coming and going. The room was not large at all; in fact, one side of the bed rests against a wall. And there are... More

Small rooms and the view we got to car parking was not that nice. One could also see inside the room. Buffet dinner was a disappointment. View to the see was the best part of the stay. Parking next to the hotel was crowded. Walking distance to the center was short.

The hotel has a great position down by the harbour. You can see the Hurtigruten ships come and go in the evenings from the dining area. This is a very busy hotel. When we were there it was mainly used by coach tours that just spend a night there, so I guess it is an unusual place to be based... More

We stayed for 4 nights. Arrived 2200 because of Hurtigruten schedule. Shown to a room which was at the far end of the 2nd floor. Lovely room overlooking the inner harbour with a balcony where we could sit and watch the waterborne activities, yacht races, kayaks, tour boats etc. Bed was very comfortable, and room very quiet.

Stayed here for 2 nights recently. Welcoming and friendly staff. Clean and comfortable rooms. The breakfast buffet was amazing. A great selection to suit everyone. The dining room made you feel as though you were on a ship because of its shape, large windows, and projecting into the harbour. There was a bar above it which gave the same effect... More
