Knutholmen is a family run affair with a significant presence in Kalvåg. Svein the owner is very entertaining ensuring that all guests get a chance to hear the history of Knutholmen. The restaurant and bar is the focal point of the Kalvåg with a mix of locals and tourist visiting. Svein has his lobster and fish catch in barrels on the pier on view.

The accommodation is a short walk/drive away from the main reception. This is not your regular Western Europe hotel. The rooms are modern purpose built apartments with modern fittings despite the external retro fishing town look.

From what we can tell - all rooms were harbour/ sea-view.

Breakfast is your typical Norwegian affair with brown cheese and a selection of cereals, fresh bread, yoghurts, smoked fish, deli fillings.

A number of the restaurant staff seem to be students travelling through Norway. The restaurant menu is not overwhelming - has fresh seafood and always executed well.

Tips:
Try the restaurant Lobster/Shellfish platter! Pricey but worth it!

Ask Svein about the local hiking trails.

Get up early to see the mirror like harbour water!

There’s a Spar supermarket next to the tourist information centre.

We spend two days at this hotel . The rooms were clean , bright and quite . The view over the harbor is fantastic. Went fishing with the owners brother for a morning and we reeled in a 8 kilo torsk. The restaurant served an excellent lamb and fish dinner . Very efficient and friendly .i would highly recommend this hotel

Visit in march for a business trip during almost a week.
First the food is excellent. Mostly fish, fresh from the day.
Also the big plate of sea food is to be order for a diner. It is very tasty !

A little bit disappointed by the room. They are away from the restaurant in the village.
So you jave to get out for breakfast, which is not quite pleasant when it’s raining or snowing. Also be careful of the icy road on morning

For the conference, it is the same. Most of the conference rooms are in the village.

But it is a very typical place in norway and the owner is very kind and really try to make your stay the best !

This place is quite remote but all worth the trip. You drive on windy roads for miles, with stunning views. Then you arrive in Kalvag and everything is beautiful and you don't want to leave. The hotel itself: we were in the new building on the harbour, spacious room with a deck and a wonderful shower room.
We were in Kalvag when the Crab festival was taking place, we had a great time.
A bit off the beaten track but worthwhile visiting for a few days

Idyllic and peaceful, this little town on the westernmost island of Norway is a real gem. Quiet, peaceful old fishing village turned into a hotel. Food is fresh and tasty.
Worth a visit to experience the 'real Norway'
