Excellent hotel, in an excellent position near the town and the museum. The building itself isn't attractive, a sort of grey shed but very different inside. Not the best value - as it is the worlds most northerly hotel! Staff helpful, breakfast, good, dinner good.

Good restaurant and bar. Good breakfast. Room (in annex) had malfunctioning lights, slightly tired shower, and no phone. Junior suites not worth the extra money - just had an L shaped sofa in one corner of the room.
