We were met at the boat by the owner with a car for our baggage-a nice amenity. He is American and his wife is Norwegian. She is very friendly and he is a bit sardonic. We were put off by the really 50's concrete motel vibe as we drew near and the rooms are functional at best. They are very... More

Stayed here in July, 2013 for one night. Wanted the experience of staying in the fjords, and this is a great spot not far from Flam (we took train from Bergen to Myrdal, then Flamsbana down to Flam, then boat to Balestrand, which made for a nice, scenic day trip). Upon arriving at the dock, someone from the hotel meets... More

A warm friendly place, clean spacious rooms with the staff going out of its way to help. Only breakfast available. We went bike riding around the fjord as well as rowing in it. Visited a Viking burial mound as well as viewing the uniquely designed architecture of the small homes. The view of the snow capped mountains as background for... More

The Balestrand Hotell is a small, family-run hotel across the road from the fjords. The staff are willing to help in any way possible. We came into Balestand on a boat, and there was a car from the hotel waiting to transport our bags while we walked the short distance on foot. Menus for local restaurants are provided in the... More

We stayed here touring the fjords, and had a wonderful experience. The host was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was included and quite delicious, and the view from the room was excellent. I will definitely stay here next time I am in Balestrand.

A delightful stay. Our gracious host met us at the ferry landing to take our luggage to the hotel. Since we and another couple were the only guests at the landing, he told all of us to climb in to his car and drove us to the hotel. The room was comfortable, with a spectacular view of the fjord. Our... More

We stayed for 3 nights and had a lovely stay. Room was great as well as views and breakfast. Unni and Eric were fabulous and very helpful. Love that you can buy a beer and sit outside and enjoy the beautiful views. This town is very quiet and relaxing. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This very friendly, small hotel is a short walk (past a lovely church and other historical buildings) from the main center. Like the structure of the hotel, our room was basic but very comfortable with a wonderful balcony overlooking the fjord. We put it to good use. From there, we could see the well groomed lawn and lakeside sitting area... More

We are a couple (age ~50) that stayed 3 nights in Balestrand hotel. We had great time there. Our room had a view to the beautiful fjord, and at night with the full moon above it, it was fantastic. The place is clean, pleasant, with free hot drinks all day, and cozy leaving room that we enjoyed sitting at the... More
