I had the incredible privilege of being a guest for three days at the Arctic hotel. I was absolutely stunned by the beauty of the area and touched by the incredible hospitality, high standard, impeccable food and friendly beyond believe service. The owner manager creates a great atmosphere by his humour stories and his care and attention for detail. An...

Stayed for 2 nights whilst on a tour of Tromso area in November. The hotel was in the midst of massive rennovations which to be honest was a bit messy. We were upgraded to a cabin to keep us away from the works they were lovely. Food in the hotel was excellent and staff friendly and accomodating. We had included...

We stayed at Sommaroy Arctic Hotel for three nights, in Cabin 46, suitable for six people, three bedrooms, kitchen, lounge, diner, shower room. The cabin was a short walk from the main hotel. The cabin was one of many looking over the lagoon. It was clean comfortable, ideal for self catering. Also to our surprise sauna, which we used ech...

Very excellent facilities, good dining and fantastic nature. We also did the hot tube with bathing in the see at 3gr Celsius . Very worth the visit and we will come back in summer time one year. Love to see the northern lights

It's a pleasant hotel with great scenery. However the hotel is currently under major reconstruction with work starting at 7am everyday. You will be woken up by drilling and hammering. So probably best to avoid for a few months if you want a relaxing break. The reconstruction looks good though so when finished it's worth a visit. Although there is...

We were a little disappointed by our stay here in December in a hotel room. It was a family room but very small for 2 adults and a child. Basically the entire space was taken up by the beds and there was no view from the window that looked out onto the side of the hotel. There is a living...

Thank you for your honest feedback, We were sorry that the family rooms were not to your expectation. We are almost finished with the expansion of the hotel (1st April 2017) and we apologize again that there was no view to the Northern Lights from inside. All our new rooms have balconies and we now have three suites with two...

We booked a whale watching tour one week in advance. Annoyingly we were told that our tour was overbooked when we arrived although we had a booking confirmation. The staff at the reception was not helpful at all and denied any faults. Unfortunately you can't rely on your booking confirmation.

First of all, we are really sorry for your experience with whale safari. This is all our fault, and caused by a technical failure with our main boat. We had a replacement boat with lower capacity, and ordered another boat for your group. While we where waiting for replacement boat number two, the weather had changed and the supplier chose...

My husband and I stayed here in December, we stayed in cabin number 46 overlooking the beautiful harbour. During our stay we saw spectacular views of the northern lights from our cabin balcony, went on a whale watching tour provided by the hotel and saw humpback and Orca whales, and tried the delicious reindeer while sat by an open fire....

we stayed at a different place but came here for drinks / food several times. they have a surprisingly (for norway and this being remote location) good selection of red wines.
