travel to Kvinesdal for business. I found the hotel through Tripadvisor and I decided to give it a go. The hotel is located in a small hill about 8 kilometers outside of Kvinesdal. The location and the view is simply amazing. The staff was extremely helpful and always keen to assist you in every question you had. The room was... More

Personally I had a great stay from start to finish, staff is delightful and helpful, the rooms are clean and the view is fantastic. The first evening we had a 3 course meal and then went downstairs to play on the golf simulator for a... More

We stayed at this hotel during our road-trip in Norway. It is situated on the hill facing Kvinesdal town and nature: the mountains ending in Fedafjord, the views are simply amazing! The ambience is tranquil, it makes you relax completely! It is also a golf destination and suitable for special events, such as weddings. The design is modern and the... More

My third visit to this hotel. Set on the side of a mountain - with fantastic views of the valley below with Kvinesdal town below. The hotel is spotlessly clean - as were the rooms. The older rooms are cheaper and are a little worn - but the new rooms are modern and light. The service is excellent - everyone... More

The hotel is situated higher in the mountain (i.e. not in town), but offer a fantastic view of the region. The hotel is very clean, the bathroom are quite small however. Staff is very friendlly. The breakfast was very good. We also had dinner at the restaurant and it was very very good. The menu choices were limited however. On... More

Not too many options in Kvinesdal, but this hotel would stand out anywhere. The rooms are great, beds comfortable, breakfast excellent and even the restaurant is the best in town (not much competition though). I haven't gotten a chance to test the locally bred turbot, but it is supposedly great. Been here twice, and looking forward to another stay.

A very modern and stylish hotel at a beautiful location with a view over the Kvinesdal-valley. The hotel is new, fresh and very clean. We had a very modern room, view over the valley was amazing. Restaurant is very good, but expansive. During our stay, the hotel was very quiet, staff was helpful and friendly, like it should be everywhere.... More

I got a good reception when I arrived. This indicates that a person was involved in everything. The hotel is beautifully situated at the height of Kvinesdal, which is a small village. In the daytime you can see far beyond the valley. Did it not very many people, which is unfortunate when the hotel is so nice to. Recommend that... More

The thoroughly modern Utsikten Hotel ("The View" in Norwegian) is visible from the valley as you drive through Kvinsedal. It appears to promote a golfing theme, and is adjacent to or otherwise in co-operation with a golf course. Perched upon a mountain ridge, and positioned so that every room faces the valley below, guests have a terrific view of the... More
