Guesthouse Mary-Ann's Polarrigg (Baie-Mahault, French Antilles)

About Mary-Ann's Polarrigg

As unique and exciting as Svalbard itself, Mary-Ann’s Polarrigg offers surprisingly cosy accommodation and decent amenities for a location that is closer to the North Pole than it is to Oslo. Accommodation options run from budget to semi-luxury. The basic rooms feature work desk, reading lamp and storage space, with shared bathrooms. The superior rooms are more to a hotel standard and also feature private bathrooms and minibars. The staff at Mary-Ann’s are active in arranging tours and trips, but can also assist with other matters. There is a cosy lounge and spectacular winter garden, the ideal place to witness the strange polar light. There is also a games room and spa area. The breakfast room has a mining theme, and serves full cooked breakfasts. The Winter Garden is a spectacular spot to enjoy the other two meals. Activities and trips focus on the incredible natural environment. Northern Lights safaris and polar bear expeditions are two favourites.

Positive Reviews


Charming and quirky decor

Mary-Ann's is a labour of love, and the vision of a single person. Guests felt that the result of this was a charmingly quirky establishment where the character couldn't help but shine through. The vast majority of guests liked the décor and were very happy to be there rather than an anonymous chain hotel.


Helpful and knowledgeable staff

This was perhaps what guests most appreciated about Mary-Ann's. Of course they had all come to Svalbard to see the spectacular natural environment. Guests were very happy that the staff seemed very knowledgeable, and were able to properly advise them.


Spectacular winter garden

The hotel's main restaurant is housed in a spectacular winter garden that many guests found to be the highlight of the hotel. While the food served there was said to be expensive, nobody could fault the spectacular setting.

Negative Reviews


Expensive room-rates

This was perhaps the most common complaint. Of course Norway has a general reputation for being expensive, so a hotel as remote as this one is bound to have very steep room-rates. Guests were unhappy to report that this was indeed the case.


Standard rooms too basic for some

The hotel has both bare bones budget rooms and more luxurious rooms. The guests in the budget rooms reported that they really were very sparse indeed, with not much more than a bed to sleep on in them.


Charge for using the kitchen

While guests appreciated having a communal kitchen available to use, they were not at all happy that a charge was levied for each time a guest used it, even if preparing an extraordinarily simple meal, and cleaning up very well after themselves.
