Very relaxed place and a perfect spot for exploring the surrounding area. The room was spacious and the furniture rather new - we particularly liked the fresh wooden smell. The guesthouse, which is family run, is surrounded by a cute garden, a nice bar/restaurant with a terrace overlooking the fjord (plan your meal for sunset time for a spectacular experience)... More

I stayed here for one night on my way to the Gudvangen-Kaupangen ferry. The hotel is nice, the village is lovely, with great views. The local pub/restaurant serves affordable and good food. The main problem with the room is that the beds are really not comfortable at all, and it is not possible to get a good night sleep.

Last minute arrival at this hotel and could not have received a lovelier reception. Astrid is wonderful and even made sure we could order some food as the kitchen at the local pub was closing. Forever grateful. Thank you!

Away from the tourist mad but better known Flam in the heart of the Western Norway Fjords lies this little gem. Right by crystal clear waters of the Aurlandsfjord, Vangsgaarden is a small family run guest house with lots of history. Immaculate and charming. Very friendly hosts& a great restaurant attached. Highly recommended. We had great weather too...what more could... More

We rented a cabin for two nights at Vangsgaarden. Beautiful location, cabins are literally on the water and the view was magnificent. Clean, comfortable, had the basics for preparing simple meals (we brought our own food). There was a coffee maker and an electric kettle as well. One bedroom with two single beds, one loft (VERY low ceiling and steep... More

Charming hotel/guesthouse with simple rooms , some offering great views on the fjord. The breakfast has all what you need and the cafe serves delicious fishes. It is very close to Flåm but signifucantly less crowded. Really perfect for a 2-3 nights stop on your fjord tour.

This place was just my cup of tea. I didn't know exactly what to expect because the photos and write-ups didn't make it completely clear. But what we got exceeded my expectations. The fact that the weather was just perfect may have helped with my experience but this place would be lovely at just about any time, I think. And... More

We stayed at this lovely little place for 2 nights. On arrival we were told that there had been an over booking and we could not get our family room. However, they gave us a cabin instead. This was at no extra cost to us, so we were very happy! The cabin was directly in front of the ferry wharf.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in the hotel in a family room which was very clean. Every window had a view of the beautiful fjord and beautiful mountains rising up from there. There were even waterfalls cascading down the mountainside. Just steps away to catch the ferry, and a few more steps in the other direction was the information center... More

We spent two nights in this idyllic hotel and much enjoyed our stay. The hotel is a ten minute drive/ fifteen minute ferry from Flam. A very peaceful location, away from the cruise ship crowds in flam, looking over the fjord. However, the downside of this is that it can be hard to get to as the bus and ferry... More
