Thon Hotel Harstad

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is what it is in terms of the building, but the rooms are of decent size, the bed is of ok quality and it is clean. The staff however, is above average helpful and pleasant to deal With and the breakfast is of really high quality. I'm not staying anywhere else in Harstad unless I’m on a diet.

We were in a group tour and our lunch was in Thon. We were having people who takes non-veg as well as veg . Food served was of local . Some of our fellow veg traveler have some disliking of local food. In noon-veg they served Salmon and chicken variety with salad. We enjoyed it.

Our last night in the Lofoten Islands and we weren't disappointed with our choice of hotel. It was clean, comfortable with a very spacious bathroom. Whilst the bed for us was comfortable, I wasn't sure about our third family member having to sleep on the sofa bed. The mattress was adequate (which in some hotels is not the most comfortable) but if I could suggest the springs need oiling or attending to as every time the person moved in bed the squeaking would wake us up. Most memorable was the breakfast which was excellent - best array of fresh fruits, smoothies, fresh breads, and practically anything that you could want - hot or cold. No shortage of choice here. We were informed that this hotel prides itself on its breakfast and I can attest to that and it does stay in one's memory of a wonderful breakfast to start the day. I always have issue with inadequate lighting in hotel rooms. Dimmers are nice in that you can turn up the brightness and turn it down when required. But more lights or lamps would be nice. We were fortunate it was a Sunday as we could park in the paid parking for free. The hotel does have open-air parking bays in the same area across the road, but there is a charge. The internet was very good. I would stay there again if ever we travelled to the area again.

Awesome Breakfast The place was nice the rooms were OK clean neat. Nice location great views over the water if you get that side. Definitely one of the best breakfast I have ever seen. I would go back

Good hotel well located, just across the marina and harbour. Nice view from room. Room are large enough and clean. Good mattress (not too hard). Clean bathroom. Very good buffet for dinner as well as breakfast.

Stayed on a 7 night Lofoten trip at both ends. Get a room with a sea view so you can watch the ferries come and go. Handy central location to eat out but the hotel breakfast must have the largest and most diverse spread I have ever , ever seen.

This was our last night after a fly drive holiday organised by Discover the World. The reception staff were very helpful - explaining how to avoid car park fees in their own hotel, for example. Room was very comfortable with blackout curtains and a view over the harbour. The breakfast was amazing - I have never seen such choice and such a spread. We would come here again. We visited the church and the land around it but sadly, as with much of Lofoten in September, this was shut. The drive to the airport was easy as was the return of the hire car. We arrived at the airport very early and were able to check our bags through to LHR on SAS.

A charming hotel with a nautical theme in my room with a lovely balcony overlooking the harbour. The hotel is located in down town, with a few minutes walk to all the shops. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is impressive, large and with a good selection. Staff is super nice - highly recommendable!

A very warm welcome awaited us at the Thon Hotel. We wanted a double bed. Reception staff made sure we got one. Our room had a wonderful view of the harbour. The bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom was luxurious. Reception staff have good knowledge of local restaurants, and will book a table for you. We arrived at our restaurant to find it appeared to be closed. It was near enough to the hotel for us to head back. The receptionist telephoned the restaurant to find out what was going on, and ensured a welcome at the restaurant for us after the short walk back there. There is plenty of parking, but there is a small charge to park near the hotel in one of their designated spaces. Breakfast was very good - we found plenty of healthy options available, and enjoyed watching the people who could not resist stuffing themselves.

When you book a family room you expect one regular double bed and two squeezed in children's beds. Not at this hotel. 2 double beds with plenty of space for your luggage. Great breakfast with plenty to choose from.
