“Disappointing and overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2011

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel in the Lofoten Islands. The first surprise was to be requires to pay for all 4 nights in advance. My suggestion that they take an imprint of my credit card was refused.albeit politely, by the charming and friendly manager/receptionist who was the one redeeming feature of this establishment, apart from breakfast which was excellent. Dinner, praised in out travel guide, simply didn't happen 'owing to lack of demand'. Instead we were advised to go down to their sister hotel '10 minutes down the road' .25 minutes later we reached it ( its in the next village) and had a disappointing meal.
Add to this a room with few mod cons and no hanging or drawer space and the experience was not a good one.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2010

I went to Kabelvåg with my friend to go skiing in the Lofoten area. We saw an article on hegnar.no and contacted the hotel. They have a deal with lodging, breakfast and the possibility to make a lunch for your daily trip and a two course dinner in the evening.

The hotel staff is very friendly, the food is great and we have used one of the guides for the first two day trips. On the first day, we went to Rundfjellet (803 moh) and the weather forecast was good. We were one person on randonne skis and myself on snowboars. We went over the clouds on the way up and all of a sudden it was blue sky and perfect to ski down. The whole trip took about 6 hours.

On the second day we went with the same mountain guide (Seth) to Torskemannen and had a great trip up to the summit and a pretty good descent, but the snow conditions were not great.

Tomorrow we are going to Småtindene and are looking forward to it.

We flew in to Evenes/Narvik, both Norwegian and SAS flies there - and the tickets were cheap. The hotel has made a deal with AVIS and we rented a car and drove the 2 hours out here. You need a car to get around out here.

There are plenty of summits to walk up to, some of the best offpiste skiing in Norway and very beautiful nature. The people are friendly, you get tips for skiing and we had a great time after the trips, eating some waffles and soups and enjoying the bar with ski movies before dinner.
