We have just had two nights at this hotel, which was the last in our travels around Norway.
Our room was clean and comfortable, if a little soulless. We had a balcony (I think every room does) but because it was on the road side ("mountain view") it was not somewhere to linger.
The dinner buffet had plenty of choice, both hot and cold. The food was of usual the standard in Norwegian hotels. There was an especially good selection of puddings. Breakfast was also the usual hotel buffet, and again had a good selection of good dishes.
The outside area is very large, with lots of places to sit and good pools, including two for over 18s only. However, the number of guests and the exceptionally warm weather did mean that there was a lot of competition for the comfortable chairs. At times the pool area did feel quite crowded.
There is also a beach from which you can enjoy (?) a swim in the fjord. The water is really cold but I think a proper dip is something you have to try, even if only fro a couple of minutes before dashing into the pool which is nice and warm.
The view of the fjord is absolutely stunning, with snow/glacier capped mountains looming over the dark waters. Unlike some other fjord-side hotels, this one does not suffer from the daily arrival of cruise liners.
It was a little disappointing to be charged extra for dressing gowns and slippers for the pool, having paid quite a hefty price for the room (you don't have to have them but other hotels with spas seem to provide them free of charge with the room).
The staff are friendly and efficient.
Loftus itself is charming, quiet little village. It's worth strolling south towards the church and then up the hill a little. There are also some good hiking trails, of varying levels of difficulty.
