Hotel facilities

  • The hotel’s main restaurant, Funktionærmessen (or more simply shortened to Funken) has wonderful views of the town and serves a carefully selected selection of delicious a la carte dishes for its guests - King crab, dry-aged meats and local food like Svalbard reindeer are amongst the specialities.
