Stopped in Balestrand on the Norway in a Nutshell tour. A sleepy little town with magnificent views and great hiking. Kind of reminded me a place to go on retreat and a welcome stop to get reset while on vacation. Kind of a pause in running around to just enjoy the place. The Midtnes hotel fit well into this scheme.... More

The hotel provides plain rooms, clean, and with outstanding views. The breakfasts are nice and plentiful. Interesting that they have a sign in the breakfast room warning persons that taking food out is not permitted. The parking here is free of cost. The host is very cooperative and helpful. Located in the center of this very small town.

We arrived by express boat from Flam at 1655. Not having overseas phones, we did not request dock pick up. I later suspected the owner was there along with another hotel picking up clients. We soaked in the view along the waterfront & meandered around town, eventually making the uphill walk past the modernized Stave Church to the hotel. Staff... More

We stayed at the Midtnes in mid September 2014. The proprietor, Jon, is just fabulous. He was a wonderful host and even secured us a car in a matter of minutes. His information was always accurate!!!!! He even convoyed us for a time in order to make sure we got on the right road. The hotel is immaculate and very... More

We stayed at the Midtnes Hotel on our visit to Norway recently. Firstly Balestrand is a gorgeous town with an amazing setting on the fjords. The views are beautiful everywhere you turn. Jon collected us from the ferry when we arrived and we had a fjord view room at the top of the hotel. This is one of the nicest... More

Nice clean rooms and ours had a balcony with great views of the fjord. No TV in room but good internet. Because it is a smaller hotel there were no tour groups which was great. Owner who mans the front was helpful and very responsive. I highly recommend Hotel Midtnes.

Balestrand is a lovely place and the Midtnes a pleasant base from which to explore its surroundings. The rooms are clean and functional; the balconies are gateways to a wonderful Norwegian fjordcountry view. The hotelkeeper was knowledgeable and helpful. There are comfortable and beautiful common rooms in the historic part of the hotel (our room was in the connected newer... More
