I stayed in this hotel in the new section as I was touring the Fjords. The room was comofrtable adn clean, expansive by european standards. I had dinner in the bar since I was late arriving, and it was all delicious, hot, and with good service. The breakfast buffet was well laid out and very complete. I was not visiting... More

We spent one night in this historic hotel on our way back to Oslo after having attended the Førde international music festival. Our room was on the 7th floor in the "modern" building, facing the fjord. Splendid view in all directions and a lovely, warm summer evening made up for the rather small and outdated room and balcony. No kettle... More

We spent one night at Kviknes Hotel as part a trip through Sognefjord. We stayed in the historic old building in an upper floor room with a beautiful view up the fjord. The room was comfortable but very simple as one would expect in such a historic building. Both the buffet diner and breakfast were very good. We enjoyed wandering... More

The hotel appears to be the place to stay in Balestrand with its prime position on the edge of the fjord. While we did not have dinner here, the menu looked good, the bar area was comfortable and the rooms leading to the dining area are magnificent. Breakfast selection is extensive and the staff were very attentive and helpful. Our... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night in a room that was rather tired with a balcony that was quite dirty and needed a new coat of paint. We did have a Fjord glimpse from our room but the view was primarily of the hotel car park. Breakfast was acceptable but with so many coach parties it was more... More

The best part of the stay is the view from the balcony. The room is a good size, but a little dated. The breakfast was good also with remarkable views. We had to check out by noon and wait for the express boat, but was able to read down at the "beach". So serene! Customer service was excellent. Would definitely... More

The original hotel where you dine and relax is a beautiful building in a stunning location. Behind it is a modern, monolithic hotel block which is where the majority of visitors presumably stay. The rooms in this block are all of a good standard, but it is clear from over-hearing other guests, and from perusing TripAdvisor reviews, that many people... More

Part of traveling is lucking out of various things-the perfect table at dinner, a room with a view, unexpected excellent service. Although I had reserved a room in the modern wing (not by choice but because of economics), we were surprisingly given a room in the historic building. We went to the room which turned out to be a corner... More

We stayed at the Kviknes Hotel for 5 nights with our 4 month old baby. We loved the hotel and would highly recommend it!! We paid for a superior fjord view room in the new building and it was worth every penny: although it may not have the charm of the old building it was a large room (separate seating... More
