On arrival by ferry, our bags were whisked up the very short drive to a modernised foyer which led into the old, well maintained public areas and dining room. The corridors are some of the finest we have seen. This is a long-established family run business, which trades on its past, and has hosted such infamous guests as Keiser Wilhelm...

The historic part of this hotel is really fantastic. Especially room with balcony facing the stunning fjord view. You can relax and enjoy yourself just sitting out at balcony whole day long. The feeling is a lifetime experience. Actually, I always remember the moment.

Stayed at the historical building. My room has an amazing view, however.... it is so eerie because of all the old, black & white pictures... going to my room on the second floor, on the walls all the pictures of the landscape were interesting but the portraits of the founder/owners which are from way back 1800s and early 1900s were...

Dear br0wnsville, Thank you so much for your positive review! I am glad to learn you had a pleasant stay, and that our lobby and historic atmosphere in our ground floor was appriciated. Our corridors in the historic building has just been renovated, and the portraits were put there to help maintain the historic atmosphere. I can understand that it...

Excellent historic hotel. get a room in the historic part up front, rather than the bland tower out back. historic rooms have a private balcony overlooking the Fjord.The dinner buffet is excellent,and as a hotel guest you wil be treated to the best window tables right up front with the awesome view.

So beautiful, the view is incredible, the fjord, the hotel, the food...everything is perfect. See the details of the hotel, walk by the fjord, dinner at the window. Embrace that amazing place that is so well preserved

The setting of this hotel is just amazing, right by the famous Sognefjord. Make sure you get a room in the old bolding, as the new building looks a bit sad (and has no fjord view). Service was excellent too!

Stayed for the Balejazz weekend and loved it! My room was perfect because of the view (the famous Sognefjord), the furnitures are simple and just as what needed for a short stay. Breakfast was good too. Service wise, it was excellent! A seasonal hotel, they are closed on some months and opens every May.. So I recommend calling first!

I could live here! We were lucky enough to get rooms in the original hotel and the view was breathtaking. We had a corner room and it looked out to the fjord and mountains. The dinner provided each night was buffet style and everything was fresh and delicious. The town of balestrand is small, so we were able to walk...

Excellent choice and variety of good quality locally sourced food. Brilliant location and clean rooms. I would try for a room in the old building if I went again. Great central location, lots of trips available. Only complaint is the cost of beer and wine.

Thank kevinbarber58
