My wife & I stayed (4) nights at the Balestrand Hotel in late August 2013...(Note: Make sure you purchase a Rick Steve's Snapshot Norway book - who highly recommends this hotel & also provides MANY other tourist travel tips on Balestrand & other cities, areas in Norway.
The owners (Unnie- Marie & Eric Palmer) were wonderful hosts - nice clean rooms, yummy breakfast (included as part of daily room cost) & a hotel just across the street from the waters of the Sognefjord & surrounded by beautiful mountains.....If you have questions about tourist things to do in the area - just email (in norwegian or english) Unnie-Marie & she will gladly reply. Make sure you reserve a fjord-facing room, which includes your own balcony & fabulous views.
Balestrad, is a small (but not tiny) town, with 3 good restaurants (suggest Gekkens - try the meatballl or salmon diners; the Cider House is very good also & a bit more spendy) - all within an easy walk from the hotel. Finally, if you want to get away from the "nutshell crowd" spend a few days in Balestrand - just take the Express Boat from Flam & when your stay is completed in Balestrand, you can take the Express Boat back to Flam & complete the Nutshell route or take the Express boat via the Sognefjord to Bergen......awesome city on the Norwegian Sea!!!
