the "rorbu" wa a little worn and the kitche utensils were a little under what I expected. The rooms was clean though and the location was awesome. Near many adventures in Lofoten and walking distance to most of Ballstad. I heard they were upgrading some rorbuer and rooms so I might choos them again if I come back. great service from friendly staff

Unfortunately our fishing trip got cancelled in the last minute. We were already on our way. Quit disappointing as u can see. We got no help to rebook the trip or anything. Just a "sorry, canceled. Try again some other time maybe". We where there a day before just to reassure us that the trip was OK and gave them to days of option.... this was kind a the whole point of the trip. And a present to one of the participants. It became a really bad experience and bad customer service. I will not recomand that u book your activities here. We will no use XXLofoten for a fishing trip instead!

We did not stay in a rorbuer, but rather a room in the same building as reception. The place has clearly just been renovated, and we really enjoyed the actual room. However, note that while they advertise that breakfast is included, this means that they deliver a plate of cold cuts, bread, jam, and cheese the night before. There were two nespresso pods in the room with a nespresso machine, but we had to go ask for sugar, and were told they didn’t have any milk. Not a great way to start the day.

We went to the restaurant around 6:30 for dinner, but were told they closed at 6 because it was Sunday. The lady at reception when we checked in noted dinner would be served in the restaurant, but did not say anything about a closing time. Not a huge deal as we hopped in our car and drove to Leknes (15 min drive), but was something they should have advertised.

First I’d like to point out that march probably is «off season» for this establishment and it might be better in peak season. When that’s said it’s still no excuse for not keeping the cabins clean. The carpet was dusty, long threads of dust hanging from the ceiling, dusty floors at the second floor, dust on top of the cabinets and so on. It’s really a shame because outside is postcard-picture-perfect and if the cabin was clean this would have been a different review entirely.

the rooms and the buildings are quite cozy. the view is romantic, over the mountains and the little port in ballstad. staff is very kind. we also had dinner in their restaurant: just a few dishes freshly made and dessert buffet. we booked a bigger room following previouscustomers comments. only issue is that it'sa bit pricey!
