Our time at the Walaker Hotel was the very best stay of our honeymoon. We had booked dinner with our reservation, but ended up arriving after 10pm due to a detour around a closed tunnel. The staff didn't act at all impatient or frustrated with this, and insisted they'd be happy to serve us dinner, even at that late hour!... More

Wonderful hotel, service, beverages and food and breathtaking views. Excellent service from the staff, even the teddy bears had their beds made every morning :-) Breakfast is particularly delicious, and if you like the Manager's sense of humor you are in for a treat (if you don't like it, take a stroll through the art gallery instead). One of the... More

This is the oldest hotel in Norway according to its documentation. It is a beautifully kept traditional hotel with both historically furnished rooms as well as modern ones. The hotel is set in a park by the fjord where you can rest in settings reminding you of the old aristocratic days. The set dinner is a gourmet meal with five... More

Staying at the historic Walaker in Solvorn is exactly what I pictured when booking a trip to Norway. We could look out a fjord in the mountains while sipping morning tea. We could walk out the door and take a hike through the mountains. And to cap it we had an evening tour with the owner to share his family... More

The history of this place alone blew my mind, something like 350 years in the same family, nothing like that at home in the USA! THE FOOD WAS INCREDIBLE, best I had in all of Norway in fact. Short little hop across the fjord to the oldest stave church in Norway, took 2 hours round trip I think, and you... More

As has been said, this historic hotel has a glorious setting. Our room in the main house was comfortable in all respects. Dinner while tasty was not at the same high level. My husband cannot eat onions. He had emailed twice about this and indeed we were told at check-in that they would see what they could do. First course:... More

We have booked the historical room and overseeing fjord every day, the amazing view is speechless. The room is very decent and delicate. This is really a good place for the bees who working non stop everyday and taking a rest at this little town. The food is excellent, both breakfast and dinner. The staff is really helpful and you...

High expectations were met! In Norway's oldest (!) hotel, we were met with warm genuine service, in stunning surroundings. Food - avsolutely excellent. Strongly recommended if in search for genuine old norwegian style, high class. Superb!

we stayed in two historic rooms, overlooking the fjord. Our accommodations were lovely, and the food was exceptional. The breakfasts were delightful, as was the fixed menu in the evenings. Truly one of the highlights of the trip!
