After seeing pictures of Kviknes Hotel and hearing about the beauty of Balestrand, I was really excited to stay here. We were willing to pay the premium for staying at this historic hotel. Like many have pointed out, what I did not realize was that the beautiful front of the hotel that sits on the fjord, is the smaller, historic building. Most of the rooms are actually located in a rather unattractive building attached to the back. I was definitely disappointed walking to our room. But, once we got there, I was no longer quite so disappointed. The room was definitely one of the nicer ones we had while on our tour. There was beautiful balcony with a beautiful view of the fjord from both sides, which was wonderful. The room itself was larger than average, clean, and the bathroom was nice and had a deep, clean tub, which I happily used. We had reservations for dinner than evening, which gave us a great opportunity to explore the old building. We opted for the buffet, which was the cheaper option, but were glad that we did. The food was delicious and varied, and we definitely felt like we could get our fill of both options and portions for the price. While I would have preferred to stay in the old building, it was clear that it is too small and cannot accommodate current traffic levels. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to someone who is able to pay up for a least a night.
