I checked in yesterday and the rooms are amazing, so beautiful and cozy. Despite some check-in difficulties due mostly to bookings.com, everything is great, great staff, very helpful, would highly recommend.

Very good sized rooms, get a room overlooking the fjord, a beautiful view, which is north, excellent for viewing the northern lights, although you will have to go outside to see them from a darker area. Homely friendly feel, small and relaxed hotel, I wouldn't say it was a spa, but it did have a sauna, exercise bike & massage...

The hotel is very nice, in a more traditional style with lots of brown and knitted bed spreads and such. The views from the hotel are amazing, be sure to get a room with a sea view. We had dinner here, which was all right. The Alta rock carvings are about 4km from here. The bus from the airport passes...

The hotel has stunning views from the rear if the property externally its a boring brick built building far from inspiring the inside has some nice features. Unfortunately this is let down by miserable extremely unhelpful staff who obviously do not want to be there.

Friendly & helpful staff, fantastic food - wide range of gluten free options readily available from buffet and a la carte menus. View over Atla fjord is breathtaking and it is possible to see the Northern Lights from your room if the weather is kind. Rooms are clean, welcoming and warm! Spa facilities are available but guests need to book...

Where shall i begin? As soon as we arrived, I knew we were in for problems and it started as soon as we were greeted by the "indifferent" owner. She was not rude, but certainly not happy to welcome her guests and seemed put out to even have to talk to us. We were so looking forward to a quiet...

The best hotel I have ever stayed in. Absolutely gorgeous! Great food! Big spacious room with kitchenette. Amazing view!- I recommended a room with a sea view! I fell in love with Alta! So tranquil and relaxing! Spa on sight- book a day in advance at the reception.

Upsides  - Value for money is good - Views of the fjord - Lobby and lounge area nicely decorated  - Service friendly - Breakfast buffet and also evening food quite nice - the location is good for the view, however a not-very-nice walk away from the 'town enter' so most will prefer to take the car. The town center hasn't...

Check in was friendly. The girl showed us to our room. Free coffee and tea during your stay. The rooms are as other reviewers have described only our room had the extra bonus of smelling like a sewer. If we kept the bathroom closed it was ok. Just take very short showers ;) It's also pretty noisy. We could hear...

A lovely small hotel with several cosy sitting areas with flame effect fires. Breakfast is excellent and evening meal is also very good. Dinner buffet available till 7pm looked good but 'tired' - pity it is not available later in the evening with fresh food. Lovely resident's lounge with complimentary tea & coffee all day plus wonderful views of the...
