“Basic and tired”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We were originally booked at Sortland Hotel, who transferred us to here as it closed for Easter (the week before Easter????). We were given the keys for front door and room and on arrival we realised we were alone, no staff, no new towels each day, no guests, noone.....wierd. On the plus side they had upgraded us to the room with a balcony and view. The rooms was quite spacious and although very basic they were clean. The bathroom was worn, shower soaked everywhere and there was a strange gap at the back of the bath, no idea. No staff meant no breakfast, maid service, anything. Sortland the land of pizza and kebabs why oh why were there so many, also between 10-5 there is nothing, people, food bars, etc. We used this as a base to explore Eidet, Andenes, etc a good central point but for anything else, forget it. The main bonus on its side was on a nice day the view from the balcony was lovely. :-)

Stayed March 2013

We passed 2 nights there, the room was very tiny and the TV didn't work! The buffet breakfast was not so good and our dinner expansive and not good. To finish, the staff was very slow. The only good point was the central location just in front of the Bus terminal and we had a view on the "harbor".

  • Liked — central location
  • Disliked — rooms are so tinies

Visited mid August 2006.

Rooms are very bare and quite small. The hotel has a restaurant located on the 3rd floor which is quite good and attracts quite a few locals, although is fairly expensive like most of Norway.

The hotel is centrally located and good for all local amenities.
