5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

This is a beautiful little village with a warm friendly cant do enough hotel owner.the room was just as good with a balcony we weren't expecting.The view from the balcony was breath taking,the rooms were clean and well maintained,no tv but you can do without it and the breakfast was lovely with a hot option which we weren't expecting the evening meals were as good to much to eat for us.a lot more to do here than the other village we stayed at would highly recommend.

Nice clean rooms and ours had a balcony with great views of the fjord. No TV in room but good internet. Because it is a smaller hotel there were no tour groups which was great. Owner who mans the front was helpful and very responsive. I highly recommend Hotel Midtnes.

A traditional family run hotel in walking distance from the town centre.
Rooms are basic and functional, and are very clean. free wifi.
No TV, tea/coffe or toiletries in the room. No black out curtains.
Good communal rooms with views of the fjords.
Tea/coffee and a TV available in the shared area.
We had an amazing fjord view from our balcony.
Breakfast was very good for a small hotel.
The owners were very friendly and knowledgeable and will pick-up/drop-off to the harbour

Room Tip: a fjord view is a real bonus !!

Balestrand is a lovely place and the Midtnes a pleasant base from which to explore its surroundings. The rooms are clean and functional; the balconies are gateways to a wonderful Norwegian fjordcountry view. The hotelkeeper was knowledgeable and helpful. There are comfortable and beautiful common rooms in the historic part of the hotel (our room was in the connected newer part.) Breakfast was fine. The cost of the hotel was moderate for Norway. There is an exotic looking small church next to the Midtnes that is worth a visit. We also walked the town and accidentally stumbled into the Ciderhuse, a pretty restaurant in the middle of an orchard featuring Norwegian and Turkish food. At the hotelkeepers suggestion, we drove up the Saurdal mountain on a dirt road and then did one of the multiple hikes available at the top - lovely views (we had a sunny day, but it had rained earlier in the week and the ground was still soggy, so hiking boots recomnmended.) I would put Balestrand on the don't miss list for tours of the Norwegian fjord country, and the Midtnes provides pleasant and reasonably priced accommodation.

My husband & I spent 2 nights here & it was very comfortable. The property is about 8-10 mins walk from the dock however they do arrange a pick-up / drop if pre-informed. The staff is very friendly & well in formed. We had a room on the 1st floor, was clean & the view was splendid. Breakfast is not very lavish but does offer some variety. We certainly would stay there again!

Hotel has a very good location with stunning fiord view. There is a beautiful and cosy lounge to have a cup of tea and coffee with a panoramic window, lovely. Good breakfast, nice choice of herrings, coldcuts, eggs, cheese.We also had dinner there which was very tasty and at reasonable price. You have to book dinner in advance,Very helpful and kind host. The only small minus is that the hotel rooms are situated in a newer building on the back of a main building ,much nicer .Rooms are simple, but comfortable, all with balconies with a fiord view. Good choice!
