Nice, helpful staff. The rooms are perfectly adequate, but nothing special. Try to get a room with a waterfront view, the views from the balcony are gorgeous, but those rooms book up quickly. Pretty basic breakfast.

Clean, organized, hospitable. Good breakfast but ok coffee. Balcony rooms are worth the extra price. They do your laundry for a decent price. They meet you at the dock to take your luggage but the walk isn't very far. sweet hike straight up right behind the school not far up from the hotel. Would go back there in a heartbeat.

We only stayed one night. Not much to do in Balestrand. This hotel is very basic, not fancy at all. But the room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the breakfast filling. The star of the show is of course the view. And what a view it is. It costs just a couple more dollars for a room with a balcony and a view. Under no circumstance should you pass this up. Simply breathtaking view of the fjord.

Room tip: Absolutely get a room with a balcony and view.

We had a one night stay at this hotel and really wish we had stayed an extra night to explore more of the area. Based on other reviews, we had requested a room with a fjord view and were assigned a great room on the fourth floor with both a fjord of you and a balcony. The bed was extremely comfortable. While not luxurious, the hotel has a great sitting area in the front first floor and serves a tremendous breakfast buffet prepared by the owners. Outstanding service starts at the moment you walk off of the ferry where you're greeted by the proprietor and his daughter. Luggage is brought up to the hotel and you are free to walk around and explore Balestrand before you check in. Lots of suggestions are provided on where to hike, where to eat, and sites to see. Would definitely return and stay another night to enjoy spending much more time both in this town, hotel, and with the owners.

This small hotel, 36? rooms, half facing the Sognefjord, one of the most beautiful settings anywhere! Small size, large gracious lobby or living room, with fireplace, books, games, comfortable chairs and sofas, overlooking the Sognefjord - Norway's longest, deepest, incredibly beautiful. Buffet breakfast appropriately generous, carefully presented with fresh baked bread, fresh coffee. This is a place to spend considerabel time, taking it easy, reading, hiking, taking side trips. The management and ownership are family, gracious, fun, with deep history in Ballestrand. Knowlegeable about the small town, and excursions. The first time that we came, we stayed for one night as part of a "Norway in a nutshell" package. Not enough! Had to come back for longer. We did and enjoyed.

Room tip: facing the Sognefjord
