Thon Hotel Nordlys

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms were basic - the northern light headboard was the highlight. The breakfasts were definitely ordinary. The big let down was the reception staff who were disinterested and dismissive. At 9pm of an evening they were all outside having a chat and smoke leaving reception unmanned and the door to the office wide open. Did not impress.

Thon Hotel Nordlys is about 10-15 minutes walking distance away from local airport and next to the sea. In front of the hotel is a big harbour. Good place for walking/running or just enjoying the view. Hotel itself is clean, service is friendly and professional. Internet was free and there was even an ironing board in my room. What makes this hotel special is breakfast. Basically it is like all the other hotel breakfasts combined and some specialties added. Everything from usual eggs and bacon to the vitamin-rich smoothie shots was well done and very tasty.

Wonderful staff. I had trouble getting the heat turned on and figuring out the coffee machine. The receptionist came to my room, got the heat on, brought more blankets, showed me how to use the coffee machine. Wonderful staff! Great breakfast with lots to choose from. Great local cheeses and fish for breakfast as well. Get a room with a view over the harbor and you can watch the boats come and go. In the center of town.

Well Helene and other staff in the breakfast area made me want to send in the review. Exceptional service and Front desk staff performed great ! Great people skills ! Makes me want to visit this property again.

The location is very central and right on the Bodø harbour. Ask for a room facing the harbour for sea view and to experience the Arctic weather - winter and summer! Like all other hotels in the Thon chain, this is a perfectly all right hotel standardwise. You get a comfortable bed, clean room with all the amenities you expect. A nice touch was the bottle of water and sweets when checking in. What makes it stand out is its breakfast. It is plentiful, well assorted and of a very high quality!

Had a lovely room overlooking the harbour. Nespresso machine in room, plus kettle and usual facilities. First time these have been available since arriving. Dinner excellent in Egon, attached to hotel. Lovely breakfast - so much to choose from. Well worth a visit

Good location. Very impressive view to the harbour (didn't asked for it, but glad they give it to me)! Very friendly and attentive staff! Also gave me good suggestions for a restaurant. Excelent breakfast! It was a good choice and I will probably be back.

Wonderful decorated rooms and lovely bathroom, fine view if you get a room at the same side as the mainentrance (you can admire the sea og boats). The most delicious breakfast i Bodø city, helpful staff, clean and updated rooms,

Stayed here for one night - wish it could have been longer! Check-in staff were extremely pleasant and helpful- upgraded room on arrival (nice touch) and recommended an excellent restaurant for dinner. The room wasn't huge but large enough and the sofa a nice change from sitting on beds. The room was modern, immaculate and so clean. The views of the harbour topped it off. Breakfast the next day was just superb! Such a selection of excellent quality, tasty food - truly something for everyone. Would highly recommend this hotel for its cleanliness, pleasant staff and good food.

From the moment we arrived till we left we found all the staff to be very helpful and attentive. The hotel is a modern style right on the quayside with views across to the islands. Our room was well equipped (business room, free upgrade) and had sufficient space to relax without falling over things. The breakfast was amazing, the wide selection of fruits, breads, meats, fish, yoghurts, hot and cold food, some cooked to order was a real surprise, we enjoyed a relaxing hour trying different local foods. When leaving the receptionist gave good advice on getting to airport and arranged taxi. Left a good impression and would definitely recommend to other travellers.
