We stopped here for the night en route to North Cape. It was an excellent decision. Rooms are large by Norwegian standards - which is to say that without luggage, the 3 of us would have been quite comfortable in the room. With 3 suitcases, things are a little tight. The rooms feel new and bright - though this was the only place we stayed in north Norway that had room-darkening curtains (much appreciated in July!). Everything was spotlessly clean. Good mattresses and we found the hotel to be extremely quiet.
We arrived around 7:30 in the evening and the restaurant was closing. Fortunately, they agreed to feed us if we ordered quickly. I say fortunately because there isn't anywhere to eat for miles. They offered us the complete menu, and the food was excellent. The restaurant atmosphere is also to be commended, both classy (white tablecloths) and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning (included in the price) was an extensive array of food in the same restaurant. We enjoyed both meals. Front desk staff were friendly and efficient.
The only things to be aware of: the front door is a little hard to find! You enter the hotel through what appears to be the restaurant door. After 8 pm, the front desk/reception area is locked. So if you were planning to go back and buy an ice cream treat from the lobby, you can't. If you want to contact management, you should use the phone. There is a small place to sit and watch TV outside of the reception area. The hotel has 2 lavuus that it will rent - you could consider this if you are a larger group. Also, this hotel is in the middle of nowhere, so after dinner activities are restricted to walks up the road along the river. If you enjoy an evening constitutional, it is a lovely neighborhood to walk in.
