We visited this hotel in March 2013, during the cod fishing competition.
The rorbuer we (3 people) stayed in was simply but elegantly furnished with all the commodities: tea, sugar, everything to cook in the kitchen, soap, towels etc. We had two bedrooms (one on the ground floor and one on the first floor) equipped with their own private bathroom and lockable door. The house was warm and cozy, the living room comfortable, the wifi, hot water and appliances working perfectly.
Breakfast was very good, served in one of the two main buildings. There was a large buffet with a choice of various local and international food. No croissants or pain au chocolat, but you can't have everything I guess!
The receptionists we met were incredibly friendly, helpful and informed. Service is always SO important in hotels, especially in small towns such as Svolvaer, and I found it impeccable.
Only one, small, note: maybe the public parking area could have some spaces reserved for the hotel's customers? Just a thought - maybe the problem arose because of the full festive weekend and never usually does.
Anyway, best rorbuer ever, I highly recommend it!

On the outside quay of your cabin/rorbu you can enjoy your morning coffee or you might try to catch your own fish? At Anker Brygge we also offer a solid and traditional meal at our highly recommended Restaurant named “Kjøkkenet” . Lamholmen has been inhabitated since the early 1800`s. There were several fish-companies, fish treatment factories, a barrel factory and "rorbuer", barns and houses on the island. The fish products from Lamholmen was mainly exorted abroad to Italy, Spain, Portugal and Brazil. Today you can feel the atmosphere from the old days in all of our rooms. You still get the feeling of the era when life was rough and fishermen came to Lofoten by oars and sails in their small fishingboats from places all over this nations long coastline. ... more less
