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

the hotel is not big, and so is the double room as well. Yet, it is very convenient, if you don't mind the lack of storage space (a common problem in Norway hotels). If you plan a short stay, this should not be a problem. The view from the room is even more beautiful then expected. You can have a... More

Initially was a bit sceptical for thus hotel due to location slightly outside town, but didn't have much choice due to low availability in high season. It turned out to a great decision. Few key reasons you should only stay here: 1. character: unlike other hotels in town, this has lot of character which is visible in the building and... More

We stayed there for 1 night and had a room with seaview. The view was something that you just have to see for your self, and can't be described with letters. The staff was nice and helpful, but the hotel was a old and not "up to date". The hotel was maybe renovated in the beginning of the 2000, and... More

But can be noisy. We waited until the last minute to book and the only road available overlooked the road into town, so there was constant traffic. It was very hot with the summer sun coming in, but we wanted the windows closed against the noise. The staff did provide a fan. It's a lovely, old building- our room was... More

Geiranger, although highly rated in all guide books for the amazing fjord views, in our opinion is not the nicest place to overnight. The view from Dalsnibba and kayaking on the Geiranger are breathtaking, but the town itself is a pure tourist invention - there is no local population and prices are accordingly high. The Villa Utskiten was a good... More

We drove here from Lillehammer area then took the ferry toward a town that eventually put us en route to Bergen, and this area and this hotel were one of the highlights of the trip. Don't stay here if you are afraid of heights, you are more or less on the cliff. The rooms are not that large. Parking is... More

100+ year old hotel located above Geiranger. Staff was friendly and helpful. Nice old black and white photos show the old days of the hotel and the region. Good breakfast. The rooms were very small, however, we had a great view of the Geiranger fjord. No elevator. Overall a bit expensive but with lovely views of the fjord.

Not a lot I can add to previous reviews, but if you get a room with "The View" then you'll find this hotel worth it. The parking area is not massive but as I had no problems I'm not going to complain about that. The food is excellent, don't miss out on dinner here. OK the tour buses are constantly... More
