After a busy day of hiking and sightseeing, we started to look for a hotel around a certain location on our route (we checked the evening before and knew that there were quite a few vacancies). But when we arrived in the area, the hotels did not seem so nice and all had views of parking lots. The Leikanger hotel was off our way, but I noticed the name in a list of hotels, and because it was getting late, we simply booked a room. The man on the other end of the phone line was so friendly and courteous, that I had a feeling that we wouldn't be disappointed.
When we drove up to the hotel, we were so happy. It sits right at the waterside with an incredible view from all sides, a lovely garden and quite a few sitting areas inside.The courteous man on the phone greeted us at the desk and we immediately felt at home. In the meantime, I had read what other people wrote about the decor of the hotel. To me, cleanliness, comfort and courteousness of the staff comes first, so I was less concerned with the furniture.
But when we opened the door to our room,that was the first thing we noticed. We had walked into a viking suite. Our bed was shaped like a viking ship with a red and white striped sail on the wall. The ceiling was blue with painted stars and all the furniture bore a nautical theme. Our son immediately wanted to transfer his parents to another room so that he could have that bed.
But the living room area with his bed was just as quaint with colorful paintings on the wall and a beautiful big porch off the room, so he was satisfied as well.
The room was clean and beds were comfortable. We spent most of the evening sitting on the porch and watching the sun set while my son played mini golf and then took pictures so that he could post pictures of this cool place on facebook.
In the lobby we read the history of this family run hotel and drank coffee. So happy we went a bit off our way to this hotel.
We had a car but noticed that there is a ferry that goes between Leikanger and Flam everyday.
