Svolvær was the most beautiful place that I have visited in Norway. Hotel Anker Bryggen is a very charming hotel located on the water. The rorbu (chalet) accomodations are very typical and I just found it very special to stay here. The red wooden houses are charming. The furniture is simple but okay. My bed was comfortable, the bathroom nice but for the price I have paid I would have liked to have a bathtub. The living room contained a small kitchen. All in all the windows are sort of small, there is not much sunlight inside the houses. The furniture is quite dark, I would have decorated them a bit friendlier...
The staff at the reception is very friendly and helpful, they all did everything to make me having an unforgettable stay there. I felt at ease here and would love to come back. There are bigger and more posh hotels in Svolvær, but they are too modern and lack of charm. Anker Bryggen is very charming. The rate is very high, but all over in Norway things are very expensive. But this is a SPECIAL hideaway and therefore I will go back there one day.
Breakfast well, other reviews said that they expected more of it. I must agree. At 09.30hrs in the morning many plates on the buffet were already empty. There was no staff around for a much too long time...

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
