The atmosphere is great, the hotel in itself really is something else, the nature georgeous, the staff very friendly and professional, the beds are really good. What more is there to say? If you're in the area it really is no need to hesitate!

Been here twice, during a road trip around Sunnmøre. Never stayed the night, but I can honestly say this is one of the most spectacular hotels I´ve been to. Every room has a name from one famous person who stayed here. Noble persons from the 19th century, like Emperor Wilhelm. They also have the blue room, which is haunted by a girl who didn´t get the man she loved. A nice, but tragic story, which you can read all about in the diningroom.
Try the applecake in the beautiful diningroom and have a nice cup of tea. The staff is always nice and helpful. From the hotel you can take a hiking trip to mount Slogen.

Next time I will definitly stay the night.

I was here attending a wedding.
The hotel is an adventure and surroundings are as taken out of a Tolkien book (weather in these parts of Norway also gives you the feeling of being in Mordor).
Highly recommended and definitely worth a detour.

Room Tip: On top flore you got a view of the mountain (Slogen) and skies, according to others :-D

We stayed for 1 night recently. The hotel is special and different. Quirky perhaps but in a very nice way. Staff are professional but friendly. It is a step back in time, no room phone, no TV but that is part of its character. Try it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

You cant argue with two nights in the most beautiful surroundings, being waited on by very caring hosts. There are wool blankets on the outdoor chairs for the chilly evening air. The roaring sound of a waterfall cascading down the mountain opposite the hotel is constant and is the backdrop to birds sounds. but this is a very stuffy hotel and has overly rich food. some dress for dinner. others do not. The Norwegians seem to know where to hike, but it isnt obvious to us Americans and the staff can only give us 2 options in the immediate area. The common rooms are stale and airless . There is no lift for the third floor so travel light . the wireless works in the lobby not on the third floor. rooms. Good for a remote rest. Not for casual folks.

Room Tip: ask for a bright room.

Back to the future, in a good way. No hassle, no tv, no stress. Just relaxed atmosphere, beautiful scenery, excellent food and a very pleasant historic feeling. Amazing!

I was lucky enough to get married at Hotel Union Øye this weekend and can only say that even though I had high expectations of the hotel - they easily surpassed my expectations on every level. The hotel director Mariann Øye-Mork was present both late and early and always available and helpful. All of the staff went out of ther way to provide that little bit of extra service when required: From last minute stitching to last minute changes of plans - they took it all in their stride.

The restaurant serves excellent food. The breakfast was very good but not fantastic.

PS: This is not a modern luxury hotel: This is a quirkly, lovely, charming hotel - every room is different - and every room is amazing. The rooms are on the whole quite large for being Norway - but some may lack certain mod-cons such as a walk in shower. The location is stunning with the mountains and the fjord surrounding the hotel.
