The hotel sits in a lovely location in attractive gardens at the side of the fiord. Approaching the private jetty by ferry the hotel looks very impressive. The public areas are comfortable and welcoming. The reception staff who checked us in were efficient but lacked warmth and friendliness and this slight aloofness continued throughout our stay.---no acknowledgement of guests passing... More

The hotel is of traditional style, sober, impecable presentation and refined service. Rooms are spacious with very complete bathrooms. Five generations of the family oner of the hotel have passed, and the knowledge and experience is immediately perceived. The kitchen of the monastery that lied here before the hotel is now a gathering room, dining room, and features a cave... More

The welcome was good, room very clean, bed firm, TV, fridge and phone,slippers provided, robe extra, but no flannel. Well done they provided hot water and milk in the room to enable us to make tea at NO charge. Good pool and great lazy river, excellent position with great views. Evening buffet had an extensive selection of dishes for starters,... More

We just came back from a smartour trip through Scandinavia. One of the hotels that we stayed in was this hotel directly on the Hardanger Fjiord. It couldn't have been more spectacular with views of the water from the dining room and sitting areas. We weren't lucky enough to get a water view room, but we were facing the orchards... More

What an ideal spot to enjoy the Hardanger Fjord! The scenery was stunning from our balcony. Unfortunately we only had one night but arrived early enough to enjoy the pools and sauna, and took a walk through the orchards in the area. It is a beautiful old hotel and we would highly recommend it.

The setting was gorgeous and the food was good. The staff was pleasant and it would have been a pleasant stay if there was more than 10 watts of electricity to see by. The maids insisted on closing all the drapes and upon entering the room it was so dark you could have seen better in a cave. My husband... More

We accidentally stumbled upon this magical hotel and it ended up being one of our moest memorable moments during our visit to Norway. The place is so serene and surreal. It totally reminded me of Captain Von Trapp's house in the movie Sound of Music. Beautiful views! Wonderful staff!

Stayed with the family (2 american kids, one adult american and one adult norwegian) for two nights using Ullensvang as our base from which to explore the inner Hardangerfjord. Service was wonderful and it's obvious that the family who owns it takes great pride in being warm and accommodating. The amenities, location and landscape are second to none. Postcard beautiful,...

The hotel was recommended by all agencies, and we had great expectations. The dinner buffet was certainly up to expectations, and the same with the breakfast buffet. We appreciated both as did the grandkids. But it was not all that kept the same standard. The rooms were quite ordinary and seemed a bit worn, and too hard mattresses. The children... More

This is a lovely well kept and beautifully furnished hotel with a very good indoor and outdoor swimming pool together with sauna, fitness room and even rowing boats at no additional cost. You can also use, for a charge, an indoor tennis court, squash court pedaloes and a few other things I have forgotten! The staff are all very helpful... More
