Being in the Arctic Circle, I was expecting significantly less. This is a good solid hotel located a 4 minute drive from the Leknes Airport.
We spent 11 nights here taking photos all over the Lofoten Islands. The rooms are small but comfortable and well appointed. The shower is good, the bed comfortable but a bit on the soft side. The staff is friendly and helpful. And the breakfasts are wonderful. They have smoked salmon, an array of cold cuts, hard boiled and soft boiled eggs, several types of cheese, delicious fresh baked croissants, a variety of breads, scrambled eggs, sausage, baked beans, fruit and vegetables, and a variety of granolas with lots of grain toppings. I cannot say enough about the breakfast here.
Finally, the hotel restaurant (same space and chefs as for the breakfast) for our evening meal turned out to be the best restaurant in town. Every dinner we had there (7 in all) was excellent. We particularly liked the fresh baked salmon and the fresh halibut items on the dinner menu.
As I already indicated, the staff at the Best Western Lofoten is very friendly and helpful. A special shout out to Ivan, one of the chefs who seemed to be on duty most of the time we were there. He was superb as a chef but also friendly and knowledgeable as a local resident giving us great tips on where to go, what to see, and where the good photo opportunities were. Thank you Ivan.
When we return to Lofoten in 2 years we will stay at this very nice place with friendly staff. less
