You go there for the place, not for the room ! The room is very tiny : the place for 2 beds and that's pretty much it. Shower/toilet in the commun area. But if you don't care of the room and just want to have a bed in a beautiful area, it's perfect ! Pictures are better than 1000 words....

Thanks for staying at Skagakaia - I'm happy you enjoyed your short 1 night stay with us and that you liked the area. Yes, you did book the smallest twin room we have, but if you next time prefer a bigger room, let me know :-) Ask about availability, even after arrival. All our rooms are different in size, style...

Skagakaia is an affordable and charming place. The rooms are cozy, clean and nicely decorated. The bathrooms are very clean and modern. The common areas makes a nice meeting place with other travellers. You can cook your own food in the kitchen, or get a delicious meal at the restaurant. Lone, the host, is extremely nice and service-minded - a...

Nothing we can add to all the other wonderful reviews! This was our second visit here and as though we had never been away. It was so easy, and fun, to get involved in the local activities as we were there for Reginedagen again. The essence of the place is the hostess, Lone Lanmark, who brings the whole experience to...

We stayed one night here during a fly-drive tour of the Lofoten Islands. The staff were welcoming and friendly and our room was small but comfortable. The receptionist apologised that we had twin beds (we'd expressed a preference for a double), but we had the only available room. The bathroom was shared rather than en-suite, but that wasn't an issue...

A really charming place, beautiful view! Our room was very comfortable and we enjoyed taking our breakfast with us out on the pier every morning! The kitchen downstairs was very convenient. I tried fishing off the pier and took long walks in the area.

This place is absolutely wonderful. It is so quiet that you can hear your thoughts. Vesterålen must be one of the most, by humans, untouched areas in the world. We enjoyed every moment we spent here, in all 3 days and nights. The restaurant rum by Skagerkaia is excellent, serving freshly caught fish and a whale species that is sustainable....

We were so lucky that our Norwegian friends were able to share this amazing place to stay. The meals were so delicious they included local fish expertly cooked and superb service making us feel so welcome and nurtured. The bread, cakes and puddings were so delicious that I could have spent more than 2 days here - better to stay...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Authentic, charming and good quality guesthouse in the beautiful archipelago of the Lofoten & Vesteralen Isles in North Norway. At Skagakaia you live straight at the quai, in a traditional old dock house or "rorbu". Here at the quay, you can relax in a deck chair to the most beautiful ocean view, or maybe start your day with a refreshing morning dive or by testing your fishing luck right from your doorstep. Known for its good atmosphere and excellent food, - traditional and local - the restaurant at Skagakaia have both local and house guests. Sometimes we invite to small concerts, and some of the best moments have been when our gusts spontaneously have brought their violin or borrowed our guitar. The local surroundings offers many beautiful hiking routes. We have bicycles for hire and our rowing boats are free to use for our guests. As hostess at Skagakaia I am happy to share my grandparents' place with you, and maybe to show you around and tell you about all the nice places and things to do. We have no TV, but WIFI is free. ... more   less
