Thon Hotel Lofoten

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 February 2012

We arrived late, tired, in the middle of a blizzard and couldn't find the entrance to the hotel as all was blanked with thick snow. Not a great start!
However the friendliness and efficiency of the reception staff, the neatness and warmth of the room and the strong hot shower restored us to the human race and got us ready for dinner.
The snow was still falling thick and fast so we 'had' to stay in the hotel and eat in the restaurant just off the main hall. That turned out to be an excellent, if involuntary and rather expensive, experience.
I think hotel and restaurant are, probably, the best one can get in the Lofoten Islands.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view.

My first time in this hotel, but I will absolutely come back, for sure! Nice and polite personell, top service all over! Breakfast and dinner were both outstanding, with a large number of local Lofoten food. The bed was first class and my view was to the harbor and the Hurtigruta quay. Exotic!

Stayed on this hotel between 01. dec. - 02. dec. 2011. Nice, clean hotel with good standard. Trendy style and above average serviceminded personell. Unfortunately, the dinner and wine did not take me to the peak :-( but the breakfast did :-)The absolutely best hotel in Lofoten, no doubt!

Room Tip: Rooms with ocean view is fantastic.

Hotel is very fancy with excellent staff, great buffet, and good location. The room is very big but lacks a cupboard for clothes and a coffee machine/water heater. For those who prefer water for water hygiene; like most bathrooms in Norway, only toilet paper is there. There is no bath tube for the shower- only an inclined floor to stop the water from spreading. Good view. When we were in svolvær in september, there were not many tours; the place was mainly for conferences.

Great hotel right by the sea. The view from the room is by far the best view I've seen from a hotel room. Nice touch to put a pair of binoculars in every room.

The hotel breakfast was excellent, probably one of the best hotel breakfasts you can get in the whole of Norway.

Clean, comfortable and quiet rooms. Overall a great stay in Svolvær.

Nice and modern rooms with huge windows in the centre of Svolvær. Very good breakfast, they even make your eggs and omelets on request in the breakfast area - meaning its always fresh and made as you want it.

This new hotel in Svolvær offers clean and comfotable rooms with wonderful views of the ocean and mountains of Lofoten. The restaurant food differs in quality. Breakfast is usually very good. The hotel is affordable and recommended to anyone who wants to stay in more modern surroundings than the traditional rorbuer.
