“Fjord magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We are travelling through Norway and even though we are on a guided tour, the hotels sometimes are better than others. The hotel is small, and family owned and run. The atmosphere is cosy and the decor is rather quaint, but in a very interesting way. There are lovely little snug ares where guests can just sit, and the bar features a large ingle nook style fire place. There is wifi available for guests convenience. The food so far is great, breakfast still to be experienced,but if it is half as good as dinner, we will not be disappointed.

The hotel is located at Sognefjorden, about 20 minutes from Sogndal, with a lovely view to the fjord. The rooms are basic and the outside area is very inviting. Breakfast included and a dinner buffet served is in the nice and spacious restaurant area. Try the famous local apple juice. The food is ok, but not fantastic and the breakfast is basic. Swimming in the fresh water is recommended! The hotel is run by a family and you will be surprised to learn why they love turtles so much. Very good service and homely atmosphere. Free Wi Fee in rooms, free parking. Good value for money.

Hotel location excellent with stunning views, room spacious and well appointed.on the fjord. Clean room and Helpful staff.The room are medium sized and decorated in fresh and attractive Scandinavian style with breathtaking views. The Sognfjord hotel enjoys a picturesque location on a small peninsula on the northern shore of the magnificent Sognfjord surrounded by beautiful views

Our stay in this quaint little hotel was sweetened by teh wonderful receptionistas Charlotte and Ana who went out of their way to show us some real norwegian courtesy. They even helped us starving late travellers to a warm meal in the middle of the night with some of the best cod we have ever had. Along with a perfectly chilled beer it made up for all the bad weather we encountered along the route. The predominant feeling in this hotel is relaxation. They even offer fishing rods for catching your own dinner and bicycles in case you want to burn some fat (advisable with the good breakfast buffet and three course dinner they offer). We stayed too short. Only two days is just not enough. But as we are bsutling travellers, the next stop there is sure to come.

Room Tip: rooms on the fourth floor are best, acing to the fjord

My wife and I stopped here for one night, 17th May on a Trafalgar Tour, the scenery is nice,and a short walk away was a beautiful old church. The hotel was clean, quite and comfortable, Trafalgar hit the spot again.
