“Wonderful Friendly Comfortable Hotel”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We stayed here at the end of March 2014 for two nights and were disappointed that we couldn't stay for longer.
The hotel was beautifully clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was great and the 'feel' of the hotel was really nice.
Frode was very friendly and exceptionally helpful. His knowledge of the area, where to go, and his local and general Norwegian knowledge made our holiday.
We wish them every success and look forward to coming back in the future.

We spent a night here in early march this year and found Frode and Ingeborg most accommodating hosts, their knowledge of the area is superb and they were most helpful in pointing you in the right direction for what you particularly wanted to see. Really comfortable rooms, very clean and they do an excellent hearty breakfast, also free wifi and an excellent library of numerous wildlife and local info area books, All in all a lovely hotel in a superb setting overlooking Vadso harbour with easy access to surrounding areas, Definitely 10 out of 10

We arrived late at night to be welcomed by Frode and Ingeborg, the couple who own the hotel. From the start they were friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Each day they told us where particular birds had been seen and suggested places to visit. Frode is very knowledgeable and a keen birder which makes life very enjoyable. "The Birdwatchers Base-camp" definitely says it all.

The location along the Fjord is perfect as it is not to far from Vardo, which is another birding location and along the fjord towards Kirkeness gives plenty of options within a short distance.

We had a room overlooking the harbour and this was really a great spot to watch in the warmth.

The reception area with TV and coffee, was a great place to meet other birders and see their photos.

This couple deserve to be really successful, oh and another thing Ingeborg stayed up each night to search for and wake us up to see the northern lights, this is definitely the best service I have ever had in any hotel I have stayed in. Thank you and if I return to this part of the world you will be my first choice of hotel and location.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe room with a harbour view.

We spent two nights here this week. Faultless. Lovely hosts, great location, breakfast was delightful, beds delivered a great nights sleep.

Nice communal area with TV. Free wifi and a nice library with info on the local area. Balcony looks north so Northern Lights are possible from the premises. sadly not for us on this occasion.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the north side of the hotel. You might see the aurora from your bed!

On a very snowy weekend in February we were the only guests and we were treated very well. This hotel deserves to succeed. The owners have refurbished and redecorated and need visitors. Both Frode and Ingeborg speak perfect English and can talk about the area, and local birding, with enthusiasm and knowledge. Breakfast is beautiful. And we saw a display of the Northern lights from outside the hotel. Not the greatest display but it was a first for us.

Best place to stay, hand's down. I stayed here from 9 - 13 June, 2013. The owners, Frode and Ingeborg (husband and wife), are simply some of the finest folks in the hospitality business. I was greeted with friendliness and helpfulness that one seldom sees these days. My room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean, too! But, it was their outgoing, positive and warm welcoming that really makes this place stand out. The family lives upstairs. Breakfast was served each morning. It was a nice spread. This is a very, very popular place for birders visiting the area. The exchange of birding information is incredible. If you come as a group, it is possible that the owners will cook you a dinner (book ahead). I had a fabulous, freshly caught salmon dinner. I felt like part of the family when I departed. I didn't want to leave. I hope they get a regular restaurant service at some point. Don't miss this place. Great location for seeing all of the nearby sites, including the birding sites.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the fjord. Ask for one of these, if available.

We stayed one night, and were very satisfied with the hotel. Service was excellent, and the rooms new and cosy. The landscape around the hotel was ideal for taking little walks on the beach and the cliffs, and the scenery was amazing. We loved it, and will be staying there again for sure!
