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.

Mary-Ann’s Polarrigg offers a range of rooms depending on your needs; reasonably-priced accommodation for those who need a place to sleep during their stay or for families and those who like to indulge themselves, we have something a little more luxurious. No matter which room you choose, we ensure your stay will be a pleasant one.

All guests are welcome to use our shared kitchen, dining area and the TV lounge. Access to our laundry facilities can also be arranged.
