We loved this hotel. We paid for a room with balcony which was well worth the price. The view was spectacular. Breakfast was excellent and service outstanding. Would highly recommend this hotel as well as Balestrand for a couple of days.

The Balestrand Hotel is family owned and operated and feels like a home away from home. The view from the hotel down the Sognefjorden is spectacular, the rooms are well-appointed and comfortable, and the breakfast buffet is fresh and quite enjoyable. During the day there are very comfortable sitting rooms available for guest use with perfect views down the fjord,... More

We stayed one night at the Balestrand Hotel on our travels between Trondheim and Bergen, and we very much enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious and clean. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was good and ample. The reception staff was very helpful. In addition, the hotel carries enamel art from a local couple of artisans. We purchased items... More

This hotel is in the village of Balestrand, a popular tourist destination, overlooking the fjord. I recommend asking for a room with sea view, possibly on the top floor: ours was large and bright, with a nice balcony (as a side note, it's forbidden to smoke even on the balcony). The bathtub was a true blessing after a long trip!... More

Balestrand Hotel was perfect for our stay in the Sognefjord area. The room and balcony were very nice, clean and well maintained.The fjord view from the balcony was awesome. We stayed in the hotel while that region was going through an unusual hot spell, the stay was very comfortable even though the hotel did not have AC in the rooms.... More

As a part of the package deal we've stayed for three nights at the Balestrand Hotel. We were lucky to have a room with 'fjordview'. Which delivered an amazing and overwhelming experience. The hotel itself was straightforward , run by a Norwegian/Californian family. The hosts were very friendly and straightforward. The services were ok although the breakfast was quite simple.... More

Most important: The owners helped us with our travel plans. They spent a good hour on the phones for us getting our boat trips straightened out, and it was my error that had caused the original problem. These people will bend over backwards to help you. Also...if you are taking boats with tight deadlines, they will pickup and drop off... More

This hotel was perfect for our stay in the Sognefjord area. It had some charm and character, the room (and especially the bathroom) was immaculate, and the service was very good. Long before we arrived Unni-marie answered questions to help us plan our travel once we left. Once there, we learned she was a wealth of knowledge about the town,... More

We enjoyed our stay at Balestrand Hotel very much. The small hotel is family owned - only open in the summer when the family comes over from California. We paid extra for the fjordside room and I was so glad we did. Our view was so pretty and it was wonderful to have a balcony to relax on. The hotel... More
