The building are built in Viking-style, as part of a hotel and restaurant. It's nice, but rather expensive (a small room will cost most than $200). It's located right on the bay, great view. Nice staff, good service. Clean!

While the Viking that entertained us during dinner was really good, the food was just okay. Just seemed a bit hokey.
