“Absolutely Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We were on our way up north when we came across this hotel located in the mountains just where you're about to drive off the the old Strynefjells road. When we drove into the parking lot, a very nice and smiling lady came out to greet us, and gave us a tour inside the hotel area. The location was absolutely stunning with a breathtaking valley view and the waterfall next to the building. The hotel itself was very impressive, with lots of stuffed animals, norwegian folk music and norwegian cabin decor. The staff was helpful and friendly, and both the Salmon and pork we had for dinner was very tasteful. The rooms has newly been refurbished, with wooden floors and impressive rose painted beds, panorama windows. Couldn't have been any better!

Room Tip: If you don't mind falling asleep to the sound of the waterfall, we would really recommend to boo...

The postive feature of this hotel is the veiw. The view can be enjoyed from the restaurant, which is more than I can say for the meal. The rooms are clean but dismal.
Practical tips , this part of Norway is beautiful, and most of the travellers will be driving. Driving up from Stryn you will find Videseter at the begining of National Tourist road - Gamle Stynefjellsvegen. I can recommend the drive across but if in need of accommodtion; stay at Grotli or carry on to Geiranger, or turn back to Stryn and even a bit further on, past Stryn, to Loen Fjord. I can not reccommend a stay at Videseter.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2011

After driving through spectacular Norwegian scenery from Aurland to Stryn, we spotted the hotel perched high above us from the valley floor. After climbing up the mountain road (highway 15), we arrived at the Hotel Videseter, which is a modern building with lots of glass, but the best part was stepping in the hotel and seeing the nicely appointed lobby and reception area, and restaurant...and then the unbelievable view of the valley below. No doubt about it, we were in Norway! After checking in, we found we had the same incredible view from our room. Per Garen, the general manager, is about a helpful and friendly as you can get. He gladly helped us plan our schedule and drive to Geirangerfjord the next day. The restaurant was very good and Per has a very nice gift shop. All 4 couples highly recommend the hotel, and would love to return for a longer stay.

This hotel was a bit removed from Stryn center, but well worth the 25-minute drive. Most of the rooms and the restaurant overlook the mountains, and a short walk takes you to a beautiful waterfall. A real treat, overall.
