We are from Dubai.. We stayed 1 night in this romantic hotel. The room was very cozy and nice. The view was breathtaking. And the owner was so sweet and helpful. The breakfast was soooo amazing. I loved the local Norwegian food, specially the brown cheese. I liked the dining table and sitting with the other guests chatting with each... More

My husband & I recently stayed for 3 nights at Bestebakken. We had a lovely room with a jacuzzi and a balcony with a hammock overlooking the fjord. We enjoyed breakfast each morning with loads of choice & a great range of local foods. We loved having dinner altogether with other guests each evening. The food was beautiful, passionately explained... More

Impossible to find even with the help of GPS. Not signposted. No air conditioning rooms get unbearably hot in summers. No TV, tea coffee making facilities in the room. No hair dryer. No iron or ironing board. Very poor choices for breakfast. Way too expensive and not much on offer.

BesteBakken is found in Hafslo which is on the scenic route 55. First about BesteBakken: It is simply said a place where the owners have re-invented hospitality. Your rooms are either in the main building or in an adjacent house. Wood is the key word to describe the house. The owners will go at length to make sure you feel... More

If you like class, quiet, gorgeous scenery, sensational cuisine, and personal attention, this place is for you. It was so charming in every way, with such exquisite, home made cuisine, that it really could be part of the Relais et Chateau group. We arrived tired from driving, and having had a disappointing experience in Bergen. The drive up to the... More

Feeling like in a cozy, luxury home, up in the hills, on an old farm. We stayed out in the "VIP" rooms out in the barn. Perfect rooms, beds, food, staff etc... There are few rooms, and the place is small. It gives a private feeling of the stay, like visiting a home. All rooms with elegant interior and arts.... More

In BesteBakken you create a memory you will never forget: the owners take care of making everything PERFECT! The house, the garden, the farm, the silk bed. Dinner and breakfast were outstanding! With everything homemade (including the ketchup) and super tasty. The bath products are all natural spa-like. We only stayed there for a night and wish we could stay... More

We were a group of 10 people who stayed 2 nights at Bestebakken to go ski touring in Jostedalen and Sogndalsdalen. The rooms looked new, and were spacious, clean and cozy. Fantastic beds, with adjustable mattresses. All bath products are made at Bestebakken. The food was outstanding, both the generous breakfast buffet and the superb three and four course dinners....
