    This is an older property; but, it has loads of charm and the management has included many nice touches like waffles and tea in the afternoon. The breakfast was amazing. Also you can walk to the hotel from the airport.

    Our room was extremely warm, even though we had the window open most of the night it was very difficult to sleep. The floor heater in the bathroom was very hot and their were no thermostat in the room or any fan. Unfortunately we arrived late and didn't had the energy to try to change room during the night. In the morning the staff in the reception was sorry about this when we explained the situation and they explained it with the warm weather the last days, but it was hard to believe that it was the reason. We didn't get any discount just a sorry!

    Nice staff and ok breakfast, the room was clean and had very comfortable bed.

    The room was stiflingly hot and I slept with the window open the whole night. This was rather difficult as it meant leaving the curtains open (or they stopped the air-flow) and with the midnight sun there wasn't much darkness to help you sleep. The wifi was very slow and temperamental. For the price I was paying I would have expected higher quality and a room with temperature control. Norway isn't a cheap place to visit.

    Late check-in was no problem, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The breakfast was good, with lots of choice for the hungry traveller. The bathroom was fine - very basic.

    Great location between the ferry terminal and airport. Only took about 20 minutes to walk to the airport. Great breakfast (omelettes made fresh), and a bonus light meal in the evening made this hotel excellent value.

    I have stayed at other places in Bodo and this hotel quickly became my favourite one - it is mid-sized, which is great. The staff are really helpful and nice. The rooms a clean and comfortable. The dinner included in the price came as a surprize to me (perhaps I missed that in the description) and it was really nice extra - it was chicken curry and a variety of salads, cold cuts and nuts, muesli, fruits, etc. The breakfast was very good as well and there is a breakfast chef from Monday to Friday, preparing omelet and bacon on your request. You can make waffles until 8pm.

    Accommodation in Norway is expensive - that's a fact. In Bodo, it seems to be extra expensive, and Skagen was not good value for money. Waste water from adjoining rooms could be heard throughout the night in my bathroom, couldn't turn central heating off, paper cups and no milk with coffee service, and a limited breakfast made me wonder about 3-star rating. Also, if you have an inconsiderate neighbour who walks around on the wooden floors of his room at 3:40am with his shoes on, you and all others on your floor will be woken - sounded like a horse in there! Pretty disappointed and would advise considering elsewhere, for much the same price as Skagen.

    The room I stayed in was of a good size and was fairly nicely appointed. The hotel is also a 10-minute walk from the airport (although so is much of the accommodation in little Bodo).

    We asked for a free parking (and in the booking it says the guest WILL have a free parking) but upon arrival we were told they don't always have enough for all the guests. Fortunately we arrived late and were leaving early morning so that paid parking was unnecessary. Unfortunately the buildings are getting old and you could tell from the walls, ceilings, doors, windows, etc..

    Breakfast and small dinner. We weren't expecting a supper service (up to 10pm!) so this was a great surprise. Breakfast was also ready from as early as 5am, so we could take a quick bite before heading to the ferry port. The suit room was spacious, comfortable and homely.
