Highly recommended hotel in Hardanger. Lovely place, fantastic scenery, great staff and good service. Not expensive. The Baroniet goes back ca 350 yrs and is well worth a visit. From Stavanger it takes ca 4 - 5 hrs by car, including 2 ferries, from Bergen maybe less

We spent the night in a wonderful room with charming well kept old furniture. Really like stepping back a hundred years. But very good new matress😊 Sheep grazing outside, could hear the waterfall, and owl in the night. Nice walks to take, and beautiful gardens. We had dinner in the evening and we ENJOYED😃 Absolutely top class

The Baroniet Rosendal is a true gem and is an even better experience, when you are staying overnight! At first, I was not aware, that we are not sleeping in the old castle, but in the farmhouses, 500 m away. Nonetheless, the interior was simple, but absolutely charming. The rooms were equipped with a brass bed, sink with a golden... More

Thank you for your kind words! This is exactly the atmosphere we are striving to give our guests - a romantic alternative to the ordinary hotels. You should really experience the lovely trip around the Hatteberg waterfall next time (only an hour walk). Not to mention the stunning views from the Malmangernuten mountain right behind the Home Farm... And the... More

Rosendal is an almost magical village at the foot of several might mountains. The silence is only broken by the bells of the sheep grazing in the meadows outside, and the waterfalls running down the mountain. It is a tranquil place, and the Barony is worth a detour. The B&B itself is unfortunately nothing to write home about. It is... More

There is good quirky and bad quirky and this hotel, as the other reviews indicate, has both. I am personally glad we stayed here for two nights even though it was youth hostel-like in that the bathroom was shared by everybody and the hours were rigid (breakfast from 9-10 only). The wifi password seemed to be a secret passed down... More

Staying at the Barony in Rosendal is a special experience. It lies in beautiful surroundings between the Hardangerfjord and the Folgefonna glacier. The manor house from 1665 is worth a visit and has a very interesting history to tell. The rose garden is just beautiful. You can walk around for hours, go to the lovers` bench or enjoy homemade ecological... More

We went there with friends and expected a reasonable place, after all it is called a Baroniet. I think the sleeping quarters, 1/4 mile down a muddy track, should be called Baron-not-iet. The bedrooms are extremely basic, ours was not made up at 4 p.m., the staff had to walk through it to get to the store room / office.... More

This is not a review of the hotel at the Baroniet Rosendal, but a review of the main manor house from 1665 and its gardens. This is an easy day trip from Bergen that can be booked at either the Tourist Information in Bergen or on the Norway In a Nutshell web site. The trip here is on an express... More

The Baroniet Rosendal offers accomodation a few hundred metres from the main attraction; the Baroniet building with its gardens. The rooms are both in the "Avlsgård" and in the "Fruehuset" just down the road. The Avlsgård is actually a farm, with sheep, where the main building has been made into quite charming guest rooms. The rooms are basic and the... More
