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.
