My wife and I have just had a great two day stay at the Hotel Union. We arrived late in the afternoon and were given a very friendly greeting by the people at reception. We'd had a slight accident with the car on the road to Geiranger and they were so helpful in giving us advice on informing the police... More

I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights as a part of a company conference. We all had a brilliant time, especially those of us who got assigned rooms with ceiling to floor stunning views over the Geiranger Fjord. The Spa is one of the best I have ever experienced and the outdoor heated pool with a view was an... More

The day spa at this hotel is wonderful and a first class experience. The buffet dinner and the breakfast had plenty of options but as other reviewers have stated, extremely busy. The foyer and surrounding environment were spectacular. Our room was dated and dusty, old curtains and bedspreads etc witha view of the carpak. The cars in the garage are... More

The Hotel Union is situated looking straight down the Geiranger Fjord which is a view you never get sick of looking at. The hotel is still owned by the original family who offer a friendly welcome and make you feel at home. The bedrooms are comfortable and even though we had a back room we still had a nice view...

Arriving at the Hotel Union, one might think they have found a gem. You are greeted with an antique Buick, a very spacious lobby, and warm and friendly staff. However one should temper expectations because initial impressions may change when you see the room. During our weeklong trip to Norway, we found our room at the Hotel Union was below... More

We spent 2 nights at the hotel and had a great stay. The front desk is friendly and efficient, the rooms are clean and comfortable. There is an indoor/ outdoor pool as well as a nice spa. Do not miss the antique cars in the basement. The hotel owns a collection of cars from a 1919 Cadillac on to 1934... More

The Union Hotel sits above the little hamlet of Geiranger and the walk down follows a bubbling stream that froths and falls over stones as it rushes down to the fjord below. The views from the hotel are fantastic! The day we arrived there were several tours arriving. The buffet supper was a real bear garden of people pushing to... More

I was lucky enough to stay at the Hotel Union with my son on a very special trip to Norway. It is the best possible position in Geiranger with spectacular views over the fjord and right next to the museum and the dramatic waterfall. The staff welcomed us like family and the rooms were spacious with wonderful views to the... More
