“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

We stayed 4 nights in "Ransveig" which is their largest accommodation. Immaculately clean, everything we needed, including a good WiFi connection. To improve the offering, they should add some more TV channels - three in Norwegian was all on offer despite having a satelite feed and digi-box. Some hanging/storage space for clothes would also help - there was none!!

Kenneth is a perfect host, friendly and full of great advice for our holiday.

Henningsvaer is a bit isolated - a good 25 minute drive from Solvaer where boat trips and a decent supermarket are to be found. We arrived through Evenes airport, which was an gentle 3 hour spectacularly scenic drive south. This is a fabulous part of the world and we were so blessed to see in in clear blue skies. Cannot recommend the Lofoten experience highly enough.

Henningsvaer proved to be a great choice as base for few days in this part of Lofoten, and Gammelfiliten an exceptional place to stay and enjoy it. Easy short drive from Svolvaer, warm, comfortable, well-equipped, superb views directly onto harbour. It was great to enjoy Henningsvaer when the day visitors had left ( not so many though in early June). It is a picturesque small place with several places to enjoy the work of local artists, good fresh seafood, and endless fantastic scenery. There is a gorgeous beach at the top of the road, and kayaking and boat trip options nearby. Easy base for trips to places like Eggum, Gimsoy and other midnight sun top-spots.Gammelfileten was so relaxing and charming to return to, and Kenneth is a most genial and interesting host, we really appreciated all he could tell us about the area, the changes it has seen, and about the cod-fishing which is at the centre of everything here. A completely enjoyable stay, wish we could have stayed longer.

My wife and I stayed in Gammelfiléten several weeks and it is for sure something we would recommand to everyone : the rooms are beautiful, clean, extremely confortable, with the magic charm of tradition in the use of wood. The place is quiet and the owner is more than welcoming and helpful. A perfect experience, from the first to the last minute.

When going to Henningsvaer forget about hotels, we can only recommend this hidden gem here! We stayed a couple of days in the Ranveig apartment, located on the top floor, which is very spacious, nicely refurbished and offers splendid harbour views from the large windows. Sleep quality is very good, what is important to us: quality mattresses and blinds to darken the room (essentially in the land of the midnight sun, but not often found). Quiet location close to supermarket and several restaurants.
And Kenneth is a great host: always helpful, nothing is too much trouble for him and a very nice guy to chat with.

We happened upon this brygge accomodation on trip advisor and weren't sure what to expect given how laid back the management was and how cheap it was. But, we were thrilled to pieces with it, and i'm a hotel snob!

He only has 3 apartments and we took Ranveig, the largest of the lot. It has a separate bedroom and a great room with complete kitchen sofa/sitting area, dining table and 2 extra bunk beds. All that you could say is missing is a microwave, a toaster and laundry facilities. We stayed for 2 nights but tried to stay for an extra 2 nights - sadly it was booked.

Given the competition in town, the owner could easily charge double the 800 krone per night that we paid.

It's an apartment, not a hotel - so no room service or daily maid service. But it has free wireless broadband and is decorated with classic photos of Henningsvaer. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Clean, cheap, reasonable price, good space and aparently newly renovated.
Located close to a supermarked and in the centre of the village with restaurants and small handcraft/souvernir shops.
Very good view from our apartment. Silent area by the beautiful canal inbetween the islands. Friendly host, wanting to help with anything and very talkative. We borrowed a couple of bicycles and he did not charge anything.
