My wife & I recently stayed at the Balestrand Hotel for unfortunately only 1 night! The community is very quiet and located on an extremely beautiful section of the Sognefjord. Our 2nd floor balcony room with an unbelievable view of the Fjord made us never want to leave and was well worth the small upcharge. The owners and their daughters... More

We spent two nights here. The owner and family do a great job of making their home yours and seeing to the little things that come up in every trip. From hauling suitcases in their car to providing water shoes, they were really welcoming. It is where I will stay next time we go

This is a great family-run hotel with good service, clean rooms and reasonable rates in a spectacular setting. Unni Marie, a Balestrand native, can serve up excellent advice on Balestrand and the Sognefjord region. Delicious breakfast!

As others have noted, this hotel does not provide luxury accommodation. It's basic, yes, but it's clean, the beds are comfortable, and it has its own charm. The lounge area is actually really nice -- very comfortable place to sit and read or relax with a glass of wine. I followed advice from this site and booked a room with... More

Hotel Balestrand is in the ideal setting--The view from the hotel is amazing. The family-run hotel offers a lovely sitting area with fjord view as well as lawn chairs in front. Unnimarie, her husband, and daughters run the hotel very efficiently. I think it is the best place to stay in Balestrand. If you plan to arrive by express boat,... More

The hotel at first may not look promising, but soon you will see why the dated decor is part of its charm. It may feel like you are back in your 70s childhood, but that is also why it feels like you are part of a family. The entire hotel is run by a family - husband, wife, daughters. They... More

We got a room with balcony that faces the fjord. And the view is to die for!! This is the best view we've had in a hotel. The breakfast was modest but sufficient. Owner provides transport to and from the harbor.

Price wise it looks cheap but Compared to the other hotels in the area, it is high for what you receive. The family owned hotel is nice but UnniMarie may need the money for daughters private college. Very helpful upon check-in.

Easily found the hotel a few minutes’ walk from the ferry/bus stop. We hadn’t arranged a pickup but found the owner there with her car so she took our bags. On check in she gave us a very informative run down of activities, restaurants etc. Our room was bright and comfortable with an amazing view and a spacious balcony. You... More
