Even by Norwegian standards this was an expensive place to stay, we paid 2450 NOK and I booked super early for Rorbu 19. I also felt a little cheated because the odd number cabins don't get the balcony facing the water, though you can walk out on to it. This really should have been mentioned when I had been emailing, and I emailed a lot with a lot of questions.

That said, the rorbu and the staff were lovely. We had a lovely time and the kids enjoyed the novelty of staying there. Lovely breakfast too.

There was a wedding going on and we were awoken at 4am by the sound of someone blowing a horn outside. Could have done without that!

We also got a really late checkout which I appreciated but I felt was warranted given the price we paid.

Room Tip: Even numbers for the rorbu - otherwise it's not on the water

Nice, clean, great sized apartments. We had a waterfront apartment with access to a deck where we could enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. It is such a nice and quiet place with good views.
We had our first dinner at the restaurant and can warmly recommend it. The breakfast buffet was diverse and included everything we could ask for.

Everything in Lofoten is expensive, and this hotel is no exception. However, this amazing property is well worth the money!

We stayed at one of the ocean-facing cabins with the most incredible views. There are two bedrooms upstairs with comfortable beds and nice linens. Downstairs there is a nice entrance with plenty of room to hang up coats and hats, along with a spacious bathroom (shower only, no tub), a comfortable couch, a dining area, and a kitchen. The kitchen is well-stocked with plenty of cookware. We prepared our own dinners here for two of our three nights and had everything we needed. There is a two-burner stove, refrigerator, microwave, and electric tea kettle. They also provide a nice selection of tea and instant coffee. We stayed here alone, but the cabin would be plenty big enough for two couples or a family. Be aware, though, that the stairs leading up to the bedrooms are very steep and might be tough for older people or small children. There is a small TV with four channels. The free wifi is excellent and fast.

Breakfast is included and there is a nice selection of both hot and cold items. The restaurant is beautiful... they did a nice job keeping a cozy, nautical feel while remaining classy. We ate dinner there one evening. I travel to Norway a lot, and this is by far the best meal I've had dining out. The fish was fresh and well-prepared and the steak was perfectly done with an incredible sauce. Prices range from 200-350 NOK for main courses and a beer will cost you between 85-100. Expensive, but we didn't mind splurging a bit since we prepared our own meals the other nights we were there.

Kabelvag has a few cafes and a grocery store, and Svalvaer is close by with several shopping and dining options. We did a lot of driving on this trip, and this hotel was centrally located and perfect for us. The staff is nice, professional and helpful.

This hotel consists of many small cabins, something you understand from the name if you read Norwegian. The cabin we had easily slept four and probably six, each cabin has one bathroom. Downstairs Bathroom and combined living room and kitchen and upstairs two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two singles. Beds were OK but a bit narrow. Convenient hotel if you are a family that is travelling together. Nice and clean with all the basics you would need.

We stayed one night here. It is literally on the water with a deck/dock out the back door. It has two bedrooms upstairs with a cot and sofa for more sleeping space downstairs. One of us has a walking disability, so we moved the cot down to the living room and one of us took the sofa. It was fine. It has a small kitchenette with table and chairs. The bath (downstairs) has the typical heated floor you find in many places in Norway. It was very nice, very comfortable.

The included breakfast buffet was one of the best we've had in Norway. They had North American breakfast which we didn't take, but we loaded up on Norwegian cheese (brown and otherwise), breads and accompaniments. We highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Closer to the main building is convenient, and noise was no problem.
