Stayed as part of a tour for 2 nights. As we pulled in we thought "seems OK". Got to our room and thought, "nice but kind of small". But then we started exploring the hotel and grounds. It is just spectacular - from the view, the furnishings, the 2 indoor pools, indoor tennis court, outdoor lap pools, little private areas... More

We stayed at the Hotel Ullensvang for two glorious nights. The swimming pools were amazing and I loved the views of the fjord and mountains while I swam laps. The hotel restaurant was very good filled with Norwegian delicacies. There were also many large open spaces to gather in. We walked to the nearby church with a cemetery that dated... More

Wonderful historic hotel! Our fast, warm welcome at check-in was quickly followed up by a fun local hike through fruit country and then a dip in the indoor-outdoor pool. We took out a rowboat the next morning to get a view of the hotel and our surroundings from the fjord. Breakfast buffet was excellent and we really enjoyed the harp... More

We wanted a dream holiday and this did not let us down! It was a 3 hour journey from Bergen airport but when we arrived we could see it was worth it.

This first class tourist hotel offers nice and big rooms, cozy atmosphere and excellent food. The evening buffet with local specialities is quite unique. The only disappointment was the scrambled eggs made from egg powder that was served in the morning. The hotel is located away from the main routes, but is definitly worth a detour. The surrounding fjord, mountains... More

We were fortunate to stay 2 nights at this wonderful hotel. Our room was lovely overlooking the dramatic fjord with snow capped mountains and waterfalls as a backdrop. The evening dinner buffet, included in the price of the room is sensational. Such a variety with crab claws, crayfish,mussels,several differently cooked salmons, pork, beef stew, and so much more.
