This hotel is in a great location, high on top of the mountain, and boasts a superb view of one if the most beautiful fjords in Norway. It's really worth paying the difference for a room with view. Our room was small, but functional and clean. We saw that some double rooms with view were bigger than ours: try asking... More

Service was consistently friendly, helpful & accommodating on requests. We had an early start for a long kayaking trip therefore asked if we could have breakfast earlier then the set time, which they arranged for us. The evening restaurant food has been the best eaten in Norway !!! Massive compliments to the chef!!! Only crticism, rooms are relatively small and... More

Staying at Utsikten Hotel for 2 nights was a great choice. From Geiranger we took the bus for Dalsnibba and then the driver drop us off at Utsikten hotel on the way down. The view from our room facing the fjord was excellent, but it got a bit too hot on July 9th 2014 when the temperature hit 30C. For... More

One of the best views I've ever had from a hotel anywhere. But the location means you get the view, not the amenity of the town. The shops and town are only a couple of kilometres away - but it's a long walk up the hill! 2 single beds pushed together but ok with thick pillowtop overlay. But 2 single... More

A bit of an upscale establishment, with a long and interesting history. Very nice staff, very clean and comfortable. Terrific views looking down into the fjord. We arrived very late, but were still able to get a nice meal in the restaurant. Well-located for getting to the ferries for a trip into the fjord. A minor item on the downside:... More

We decided to stay at this hotel after visiting another classic Norway hotel in Molde, and boy was this hotel nothing like our expectations. We booked and paid extra for a fjord view going for a double room with seating area. The hotel boast that it has 20 double rooms this is a slight exaggeration, the room at best was... More

A small, friendly hotel. Room small, bathroom tiny, furnishings a bit dated. View AMAZING from the big picture window. If you’re not in a fjordside room you really miss out. Great location for walks in the area, there are many to choose from (most of them start from at least this far out of town) and for avoiding the hordes... More

Together with American relatives we stayed one night at this hotel. The view from the hotel, even from the rooms, is spectacular on a clear day. You can see the whole area around Geiranger, including the fjord. Breakfast was really good, and they have a small coffee bar as well. Some porches around the hotel makes it possible to enjoy...

Villa Utsikten has the very best view over Geiranger. We were traveling around in Norway with Greek friends, and payed a little extra to get rooms with a view. It was well worth it. The view from the room, even from the toilet, is overwhelming and extraordinary. We were very lucky with the weather, and were able to enjoy the... More

If you visit this part of Norway you MUST spend a night or two in Hotel Utsikten. The view from you hotel room is stunning. You won't find it better anywhere. Breakfast is good. Dinner is good but expensive. Instead (for dinner) walk to the nearby 'Restaurant Westerås' where you get better food, better service in a wonderful old barn... More
