We were really welcomed from being met on the harbour to the early breakfast as we left. Nothing was too much trouble. We loved the public areas which are a little old fashioned in a stylish way. The bedroom was comfortable although there was no TV and the only way of getting some fresh air was to open the door.... More

This is a very efficient hotel, for us it worked well, we had been to Balestrand as part of Norway in a Nutshell. We were there for the outdoors and view, and that is certainly what Midtnes allows for. The staff is very accommodating and the rooms very clean. This is a basic and simple hotel, with that understanding it... More

The setting and fjord views from this hotel are certainly worthy of five stars but it is also the way everything is provided with such sincerity and lack of pretension which persuades me to give a high rating. Yes, the rooms are basic, rather 'tired' and things like the lift are somewhat dated but the public rooms with an eclectic... More

This hotel is in a great setting that is really peaceful. We had a fabulous view of the fjord from our room and a good sized balcony on which to sit out. There was a friendly welcome and good tips for our stay. The room was spacious but very basic and not up to the standard of the other hotels... More

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
