It was worth the value... a nice location and view of the peaceful fjords... quiet and safety place. Indeed, there is no restaurants or shopping places in the neighbourhood, but the hotel's restaurant. The bad thing was the heater... a very old one (from the 50s I assume). You had to sit just next to it if you wanted to... More

This is a relatively small hotel, located just a couple hundred meters from the ferries to Hella and Vangsnes. There are no stores or restaurants in the immediate area. Balestrand is about 10 km away. Our room was on the third (top) floor, and was pretty basic. (It apparently was not the large room on that floor mentioned in other... More

Very friendly and lovely location. We stayed in the very large family area on the third (or second depending on where you're from) floor which was done out like a massive wood cabin. We couldnt believe it when we checked in and saw the space!

We were 3 touring by car. The location is perfect - right next to the ferry terminal to Hella & Vagnes. Super location with views of the lake, very friendly family staff and totally adequate clean rooms - we stayed in the newly refurbished attic studio - not properly furnished yet, but very comfortable. A standard breakfast and dinner if... More

My wife and I stayed overnight 16th - 17th of May 2013. We arrived by the ferry and were surprised by the stunning palce where this hotel was situated. We were lucky, and got a big room with the fjord view. It even had a spacious balcony. (Room 205). Luckily the weather was warm and nice, so we could enjoy... More

My boyfriend and I just returned from a two week vacation, where the Dragsvik Fjordhotell was one of our favorite spots. We booked it last minute and got a fantastic deal (we think?). We thought we wanted to stay in Balestrand, but we got even more excited about Dragsvik. And it didn't disappoint. It should be noted though, that this... More

We recently returned from an excellent trip to Norway with the low point being the night in this hotel. Although it was the priciest of al the hotels we booked, it offered nothing for the cost. It is located in a beautiful corner with views of fjords/water on 2 sides, but our room's view required looking out the window at... More

The hotel is located about 5-10 minutes away from Balestrand, right next to the Dragsvik Ferry so if you have a car this is a good place to stay and explore the area. Room was comfortable and clean, free WiFi throughout the hotel (even in the patio area where you can enjoy the magnificent view). Very friendly staff. Breakfast was... More

Wow ! - unforgetable views across the Sognafjord - the best views we've ever had in any location.This is a fairly remote location across the inlet from Balestrand, and you'll probably end up dining in. Family run and very friendly - and quite small, so pleasantly informal. We had a good walk in the evening around some well marked paths... More
