Depending on the time of year your, stay will include magical landscapes, wildlife, Northern Lights or Midnight sun. Our guess is you will want to return again and again to experience the different seasons and adventures Svalbard has to offer.Today, Mary-Ann’s Polarrigg consists of a pleasant courtyard surrounded by three buildings; the mining rig, the luxury rig and the transportation rig. Accommodation is in the form of 17 single, 19 double, four family rooms and our polar night suite. Facilities include the AuroraSpa and the restaurant, Vinterhagen.
Created in 1999 by owner Mary-Ann Dahle, the hotel was transformed from its previous life as miners barracks carefully and lovingly into what we have today. Over the past 20 years, Mary-Ann has been growing and updating each building with new ideas to make sure guests have a special experience while visiting Svalbard. Many items throughout the hotel are from the old coal mines in the area including the red miners bus which stands outside the bar area and serves as a smoking shelter complete with fairy lights.
