“All in all okay...”
Reviewed 6 July 2011

We stayed there in Summer for a couple of Nights and our impression is that the Rooms are down used the Funiture looks old and well used, It was clean and the Staff was very nice, even a German speaking Woman which was of Great Help for us. This place have seen better times but if you dont expect too much , it is okay. Greetings From Germany

The hotel is located near the main E10 road through Leknes. The location of the hotel is a bit strange, in the middle of a residential area. Looking out the windows, you look into people's homes...

According to the information binder in the rooms, the hotel was originally build for the 1994 Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer. After the games, they cut the structure apart and shipped it to Leknes. This is not evident, but the exterior does not have much charm to it.

On arrival at about 2300, the reception clerk had deleted our bookings as no-shows, even if we had called the hotel a few days before notifying them of our late arrival (the reservations were guaranteed by credit card as well). This was straightened out quickly, though, but could have been a problem if the place had been fully booked.

Rooms did not seem to have been upgraded since 1994 - apart from a new TV. All OK, but quite worn. Not much space, the desk was tiny. The bathroom showed clear signs of age - cracks and small pieces falling of the wall along the floor.

Breakfast was OK. Staff were friendly, but some of them seemed to lack training (unable to combine two bills into one).

If returning, I would rather find a more interesting place to stay. Both Leknes and the hotel are among the least interesting bits of Lofoten.

A run-down filthy hotel with disinterested staff. When I checked into my room there were lots of large crumbs on the floor just inside the door and the toilet had obviously not been cleaned. On my way out I requested that the room be cleaned again. That night when I went to open the window I saw there were food rests underneath the window. The next morning I reported this to the receptionist, who didn't even bother to stand up from her computer and come to the counter. She said she would have the room cleaned. When I got back in the evening, someone had obviously sprayed some cleaning solution in the room but the food was still there on the floor. I reported this to the reception and she came with me and cleaned away the food but that was kind of missing the point: the room had not been properly cleaned 3 times. As I had no choice but to stay there another night, I waited until the morning to look more closely. The main surfaces (desk and table) were clean but everything else was coated in dust. I will leave it to your imagination what it looked like under the bed. Even the silverware at breakfast hadn't been properly cleaned and still had food crusts on it. All in all: gross. Considering the prices this hotel charges there is no excuse for such a run-down, dirty hotel. Avoid at all costs!

We travelled through the Lofoten islands for about a week and stayed here for one night. The hotel was clean and adequate. The room was decently sized and actually had a double bed unlike some places we booked. Considering the limited options in the area, I would recommend the Best Western. Breakfast was a little minimal compared to other places we stayed.
