Hotel Sandven is located on the water, with breathtaking views. It is a very old and historic hotel with a beautiful, carved and painted wood interior. Service is excellent and meals are world class. If one is assigned to one of the new rooms, or room suites, it is an excellent place to stay. This is the beauty, now on... More

We stayed in a family suite - a corner set-up in the new section with an incredible view (upgraded because the hotel was tight on rooms). Staff was helpful and friendly. Charming town on the fjord. I would definitely come back for another stay.

The room itself were great size and fine facilities. The breakfast offers a good varity of food, you will not go hungry away from... More

This was a short visit for us so we were able to make the most of our beautiful surroundings as this historic hotel is next to the old harbour where our 'Hardanger in a Nutshell' cruise ship docked. The setting is idyllic and peaceful. We had a large modern apartment in the new wing with a generous balcony. We were... More

Our booking at Hotel Sandven was made last minute, but the reception was super helpful and accomodated all our wishes. The room was lovely and spacieous. Norheimsund is a gorgeous little town, definitely worth a stop. The hotel is beautiful. The breakfast was fantastic.

I stayed in this hotel 3 night in the original old side (not the new modern side) in the Sean Connery Suite. My next door neighbors sounded like they were in the bedroom with me and I thought the person walking around in the room above me was stomping. To make matters worse, the hotel does not have great hotel... More

Had a great stay at Thon Hotel Sandven. Room was really nice and the staff was really friendly. Hotel has a nice garden and promenade along the shore. Great breakfast served in historic dining room. Great athmosphere in an old building. Hotel is located in central part of Norheimsund.

We had been relocated to this hotel as our original accommodation had been double booked, so we stayed for a very reduced price. There were 6 of us staying a 3 bed apartment. 2 double bedded rooms and one single room and an extra bed was... More
