4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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 While the rooms may be a bit outdated, ours was big, clean and comfortable.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

Beautiful hotel located in the most pristine environment! The older side of the hotel holds they key to the past (and the endless breakfast and dinner buffet), while the newer edition built in the 70's we believe reminded us of our dorm rooms in college. The edition does not hold a candle to the original side in terms of appearance,... More

Stayed one night in June 2016 on a layover on the Sognafjord on a Nutshell express ferry. The hotel is so gorgeous. With property offers a lot of spaces indoor and out to sit back and enjoy the amazing scenery. We stayed in a room in the front side of the historic part with a huge balcony after several days...

Stayed at the hotel for three nights during above tour. The hotel is a masterpiece, situated right by the side of the fiord. The public rooms are more like a stately home and beautifully furnished. Bedrooms in the new wing are very well appointed with a decent size balcony to soak up the view. Meals in the restaurant are buffet... More

The hotel is within a short walk from the ferry. The hotel is in the style of a grand old hotel. Breakfast buffet was very good, a great variety of things to choose from. While we were there, a choral group was visiting and we were treated to a free concert on the lawn of old Norwegian songs. Easy walking... More

No visit to Balestrand is complete without at least an overnight stay at the beautiful Kviknes hotel which has been family run for 4 generations. Its sillhouette is the main structure as you approach Balestrand by water and right by the port where all ferries and boats dock. The older rooms on the main property are probably more stylish and...

We took a ferry to Bergen from Balestrand, staying one night at Kviknes hotel. Although there were two groups of tourists, the individual travelers were separated from the group tourists during the meal time. We had our own corner for dinner and breakfast and it was quite pleasant. Balestrand is a small town and you can take a nice walk... More

It is amazing how many people from all over the world find their way to the Kviknes Hotel, given that it is a four hour drive or boat trip from Bergen Airport. The hotel is however world famous. Its heyday was probably early in the twentieth century but it has adapted and changed to accommodate modern-day travellers. The old building... More
