My partner (now fiancé!) and I stumbled across Utne Hotel on a drive around Hardangerfjord and it was a truly fabulous find for Sunday lunch. As a vegetarian who often suffers from lack of choice abroad, I was delighted to be served a delicious homemade vegetarian tart with fresh vegetables and salad, and it was easily one of the best...

We stumbled upon Utne Hotel whilst travelling from Bergen to Voringsfossen Waterfall. All we knew was that there was accommodation in Utne, little did we know it would be a stunning 300 year old hotel with an amazing history and incredible food! We stayed n a room used by the Queen of Norway - a lovely historic room with views... More

Absolutely a wonderful hotel. The food was fabulous. The accommodations were charming. Our room faced the ferry and noise was not a problem. If you like big hotel chains this might not be for you, but if you like history, charming eloquence and beautiful scenery you'll the the Utne Hotel as much as we did.

Very helpful staff. The manager and spouse are masters of hospitality. The room we had was a bit Spartan, but it was certainly adequate for our needs. Don't miss the folk museum nearby. Plan to get up with the first ferry. check for time.

Said to be the oldest continuously-inhabited hotel in Norway - a 2-storey wooden structure situated directly on Hardanger Fjord, with great charm of an original style. Very pleasant patio for dining overlooking the fjord for the relatively rare weeks when outdoor dining is possible. Rooms all white - walls, beds. linen etc., and as clean as one comes to expect...

If you are looking for a big comfortable hotel, the Utne Hotel is " not your baby". This little charmer makes you work to like it...but with patience, you will fall in love with this little gem. The reception area is tiny but welcoming with the small stone fireplace going. The stairway and hallways are narrow, but very cozy. The... More

We were looking for a place to stay at while visiting the hardangerfjord region on our way to Bergen. After touring in Odda, Eidfjord and other neighboring towns, I can say that the Utne hotel blew all of the others away. The decor is very cozy and charming. The meals were incredible - my favorite breakfast of the whole trip.... More

First the good - nice historic building with amazing views of the fjord (but that goes without saying in Norway). Thats about it. Rooms are very small and old. bathrooms small and dated. across from the ferry so be prepared to be woken up when the ferry starts ~6am. Food is expensive , buts thats the norm in Norway.

We didn't stay here, but had lunch with a tour group and thought it was wonderful ! The place is so warm and welcoming and it has a fascinating history. The young woman who manages the hotel with her husband is such a gracious hostess ! Definitely would come back if the opportunity presented itself.
