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

I don't have much to add to Gayterman's review below. If you are expecting all modern decor and Farrow & Ball colours, you'll be disappointed. However, if you can look passed the kitsch and see a warm welcome and a well (family) run hotel of the old school with great facilities, you'll love it was we did. My daughter remarked... More

This fifth generation family run hotel sits at a point on an arm of the Hardangerfjord with stunning view of glaciers down the fjord. The family has "stayed ahead of the game" by constantly upgrading this very historic hotel. They have enhanced their pool by making it one of the most unique I have ever seen. Their buffet is massive... More

Our tour guide arranged for the ferry boat to land at the hotel's own dock to minimize luggage hassle. This was just the beginning of a great stay. There are lots of pleasant surprises including the channelized swimming pool, fine art on the walls, superb buffets, and more. The downsides are that complimentary coffee is hard to come by, which...

We were on a tour, stayed 2 nights, coming from Bergen late afternoon and then heading to Oslo. Hotel is magnificent on the outside, grounds are a nice way to wander around for an hour or so just to enjoy the views of the fjord. The Edward Griegs home is right on the hotel grounds. Gardens, swimming areas/pools are all... More
