Friendly staff. Host is very well informed about hiking trails and excursions starting in Balestrand. Speaks English fluently. Hotel facilities are basic but very well kept and meet all the needs of travellers. Very clean. The view even from the backside rooms is beautiful. Front facing rooms and breakfast room have a nice view of the fjord. Balestrand is a... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The room could be a bit newer and larger and the breakfast buffet could have a few additional items, but you would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful view across the Sognefjord from your very own balcony. Do be sure to request a fjord view when booking.

Make sure you get a room on the water side! The view can't be beat. We very much enjoyed sitting on the balcony drinking our wine and absorbing the view. The room was spotless, the innkeepers were very nice, and the bed was comfortable.

We stayed at many different hotels on our recent trip to Norway. The Balestrand Hotel was tops in location, friendly service, and comfort. Very clean. Breakfast had everything you would want or need. Delicious! Make sure you get a room with a fjord view!

This hotel is located at a peaceful town, Balestrand. The hotel itself is a kind of warn. The breakfast choices are very limited compared with other hotels. The best part is the stunning view the hotel faces, similar to Lake Louise in Canada, but much better. The tricky part is only if your room faces the water and mountain. In... More

Stayed 3 nights at this small personal hotel and just loved it. The personal service alone gives it 5 stars. But besides that room very clean and comfortable, and we had million dollar view and breakfasts delicious. Wouldn't advise anyone to stay anywhere else if visiting balestrand.

We stayed here for three nights while we explored the fjords and area around Balestrand. The owners and their families were very kind and accommodating and gave us lots of good information for our travels. Our room was fjord facing and it was completely worth the money. The breakfast was good quality and at night if you wanted they sold... More

The Balestrand Hotel is a small property--only 30 rooms, half with (wonderful!) fjord views--located a 5 minute walk from the dock and restaurants. Our fourth floor room was simply furnished, but was ample in size for two; there were two comfortably upholstered chairs in the room, as well as two chairs and a table on the balcony. The bathroom is... More

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
