Kviknes is iconic and deserves to be perched on its impressive location in Balestrand. The building is stunning and where the restaurant and lounge areas are located where you will enjoy the very extensive buffet (seafood and salmon lovers you won't be disappointed) and then have a cup of complimentary tea or coffee enjoying the views afterwards. However, the less... More

The hotel consists of the historic and modern parts. Majority of the rooms are in the modern wing. It is multi- storeys and each room has a small balcony. The view is good and pretty looking at the fjords and the town. The room however is decorated mediocrely and not particularly comfortable. The restaurant is on the old wing. Food... More

The hotel has an impressive reputation , we had expected some real grandeur however it felt like the hotel should have a make over and was living on past reputation. The rooms were small and although we had a view of the Fjord and balcony the main room was very basic The original hotel is stunning however the newer extension... More

Balestrand offers a very convienient stop over between Bergen and Flam and an opportunity to experience the Sognefjord. We stayed at the Kviknes Hotel, a loverly old lady with period architecture and furnishings. We stayed in the new part of the hotel which was perfect... More

We've just returned from this hotel and loved the location,It was for us, who stayed one week ,rather too far away to make coach trips pleasantly viable,Eight hours return to Bergen was a killer for me-by Ferry Weather was chilly but manageable and the experience at the hotel was worth any other inconvenience. The original old part of this big... More

We took the express boat from Bergen, spent a night in Balestrand, and the next morning went on a smaller boat to Flam, where we took the mountain train to Myrdal and then on to Oslo. It was great to break the trip in Balestrand and the Kviknes Hotel was a beautiful place to spend an evening. We requested a... More

The large, unmistakeable hotel sits next to the fjord, and close by the wharf. We stayed in the old part overlooking the fjord, glorious views, comfortable bed, nicely decorated room. The main rooms of the hotel are like a National Trust property, but one you can move around it at well and sit back and enjoy. The dining is magnificent,... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights here on our honeymoon, and we really enjoyed it. We were originally disappointed we couldn't stay in the old building, but our room on the 8th floor had amazing views of Balestrand, the fjord, and the surrounding mountains. While the rooms may be a bit outdated, ours was big, clean and comfortable. The... More
