Property information

Mary-Ann's Polarrigg gives you the real Svalbard experience. Created in 1999 by founder Mary-Ann Dahle, the hotel was transformed from its previous life as miners barracks carefully and lovingly into what we have today. Many items throughout the hotel are from the old coal mines in the area including the red miners' bus which stands outside the bar area and serves as a smoking shelter complete with fairy lights. The hotel offers self-catering kitchen with all necessary equipment. Free wi-fi and tea/coffee are always at your disposal. Our restaurant, Vinterhagen, is the greenest place in Svalbard, where you can relax in the warmth of our floor-heated conservatory full of natural plants and trees, whilst taking in the Arctic landscape surrounding Longyearbyen. Our speciality is Arctic food from the North of Norway such as reindeer and seal, a must-try during your trip in the far North. On occasion, we also offer a taste from cultures around the world during our 'World Kitchen' events. Finish the night with some drinks in our intimate Peisen Bar featuring a full wall mural by famous graffiti artist Guido van Helten.
