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.

This is possibly the only big hotel to stay at in Balestrand. All the common areas are grand, the staff are very helpful and friendly, and overall we had a very comfortable stay here. The restaurant has the most incredible view and many reception rooms to sit and have tea/ coffee with a book. The rooms though are very dated....

A beautiful enchanting unique hotel set on the edge of the Fjiords in Balestrand. This lovely family run hotel is built mainly of wood and has hosted many famous guests, including King Olav. The cuisine is excellent. A very quiet and peaceful location with country walks in breathing scenery. Some of the guests rooms require updating, but the main rooms...

Balestrand is a place taken right out of the picture postcards. Kviknes Hotel - plucked from the skies. Both together...is heaven on earth. How to get there: - I took a Norled boat from Bergen early in the morning and reached Balestrand. As the boat approaches Balestrand, you see this property nestled amidst the low clouds amidst the fjords. I...

Newmarket Holidays organised a good week's stay and plenty of excursions. There were 80 of us in the group - but our Tour Managers were faultless. We were lucky with the weather (apart from a thunderstorm just after we arrived at Bergen) and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Highly recommended.

Great hotel on the side of the fiord. The dining room was huge with a fantastic range of starters. Fish were high on the starter menu with a tempting display and presentation. Three cooked main course options in fish and three in red meats with at least 5 vegetable dishes plus potatoes provided the main coursections selection. The desserts too...
