Made our booking last minute so view from our room was boring, towards the parkinglot. And as it is winter, some people started to clean their cars 7 o'clock in the morning and it was impossible to sleep. Room was a bit cold when we got there and took a few hours to warm it up.

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years and witnessed the slow and steady wear and tear on the interior. What a lovely surprise to find the hotel re-modeled and with new furnishings, carpet etc.! What a difference! The location has always been great, now the hotel interior matches the great views. I will definitely stay here...

The hotel staff was very friendly, the room was warm and cozy and the location very good. I must highlight the breakfast, it was probably the best breakfast in a hotel that I've had in a good while, so much variety and really tasty ingredients.

Located in an area full of food & good walks, Hotel lobby sitting area is nice, rooms are tight, bathroom is good, with great shower pressure & hot water. Free Wifi somewhat works. night clerk was nice and informative. Steep price but worth it seeing how its Lofoten.
