We stayed one night at a lovely summer's day. Room was good, with a small balcony, but with view towards the orchards and not the sea. It does not matter much, there is no reason to stay in the room: The garden and swimming facilities are wonderful. We had dinner at that restaurant and not the buffet - this was... More

Not much to add to the raves below. Beautiful fjordside location, rooms with a terrace view of the fjordside scenery are recommended, but the hotel has plenty of public terracespace and comfortable sitting rooms with views if one wants to economize a little by not having the "private" view. Pool facility is one of the best at any hotel I've... More

We had one night's stay here on our Norway road-trip. We were a little anxious about getting a vegeatrian meal, because it is isolated, and there is little choice outside the hotel. They exploit this by charging 500NK for an evening buffet, but to our delight they were happy to cook a vegetarian pasta just for my wife and charge... More

This hotel was the last one of four we stayed at during our 8-day fly-drive sojourn to Norway, and it was easily the best. The staff were very friendly and helpful, doing all they could to help us sort out an incident with our car when a local's vehicle ran away into it. The hotel owner did everything we could... More

We have just had two nights at this hotel, which was the last in our travels around Norway. Our room was clean and comfortable, if a little soulless. We had a balcony (I think every room does) but because it was on the road side ("mountain view") it was not somewhere to linger. The dinner buffet had plenty of choice,... More

The hotel is a "grand dame" and wonderful experience. Great place to stay on your exploration of the fjords. Arrive early afternoon so you can enjoy the property and a walk through the village. Don't miss the beautiful antiques throughout the common areas. The dinner buffet was excellent with a wide selection of food, but was the same the two... More

I visited Hotel Ullensvang in July 2014 with some friends. The plan was to relax by the pool and have a nice meal. However, we were greeted by a very rude gentleman (from the family who runs the hotel) who treated us as criminals from the moment we stepped inside. After paying in excess of 200 NOK per person to... More

I stayed at Hotel Ullensvang a few years ago in 2010 with my family but feel compelled to write a review as it was a most wonderful experience.

This hotel is basically very good, but price level is also very high (NOK 2 350,- pr night in double room with sea view). Rooms are OK, but not special in any way! Big plus is that the rooms has a terrace with sea view and evening sun, but remember to specify room on the sea side of the hotel!... More

This resort represents a history of five generations of hotel excellence, fully catering to the comfort and pleasure of their guests. This location could accommodate everything from a cozy, relaxing weekend to a large formal occasion. Our room overlooked the apple orchard, not the fjord, but we had a lovely patio.
