We arrived at this hotel which had been booked by an agent. What a treasure it was. The extremely helpful owner and her daughter welcomed us. Our room was lovely and overlooking the fjord. It was so easy to walk everywhere and we were given fabulous information on things to do and restaurants etc. I had lost a credit card... More

This place has the most comfortable beds! The room was clean & tidy. Helpful staff. Breakfast could be better, but their soft boiled eggs were perfect. Balestrand is small so no problem in getting around. Would recommend to everyone

Very friendly family runs the hotel. Very helpful in information the area and beyond. Short walk to where the boat drops you off, they pick up your luggage for you. Breakfast was fair, better than a lot of American hotels. No TV in room, not a drawback for us, but may be for others. No fridge either.

We had booked one night at the Balestrand hotel. As soon as we entered our room and took in the magnificent fjord views and the spotless room, we booked one further night. The hotel is old fashioned in that it is quite basic in what it offers. If cleanliness and great views are important to you in a hotel however,... More

We spent two nights here in June 2015. Looking back, I wish we had stayed for 3 nights. The village is so picturesque and the fjords are stunning. It is a must to have a fjord view at this hotel. As others have stated, the hosts are very kind and helpful. The breakfast buffet was average and the rooms are... More

This is a lovely hotel with spectacular fjord view rooms worth the extra. The hotel looks new or recently renovated. Everything is very clean. The breakfast is lovely Norwegian style with cold cuts, yogurt, cheese, fruit, bread, croissants, cereal and boiled eggs (soft and hard). A family owned and operated hotel with very friendly and kind service. They meet the... More

First, if your staying in Balestrand, you have to realize the selection of hotels is not the same as a larger city. We've traveled extensively and were delighted with our room and the hotel. The room was perfectly fine, after a long day of travel, just what we needed. Clean, comfortable and quiet, with an amazing view of the fjord.... More

We spent 2 nights at the Balestrand Hotel in June 2015. This is a family run hotel. The hotel owner, his wife and children could not have been more helpful. The room is comfortable, the balcony faces the Fjord, and breakfast is excellent. They truly went out of their way to help us solve some problems (problems unrelated to the... More

We spent 2 and half weeks in Norway, but unfortunately just a single night in Balestrand. Still, this was the one place where I felt most comfortable. The lady who runs the hotel is so friendly and welcoming. The lobby has an amazing view of the calming fjord, and so did our room. Such a nice and quiet spot, even... More

Without the stunning fjord view from our balcony, this hotel may have scored 2 out of 5. The rooms are rather basic (no TV, no kettle) with a functional but impractical bathroom, and the sound proofing very poor. There is no bar as such, but you can buy beer and wine from reception. Breakfast was ok, a basic selection of... More
