The Kviknes is a family run hotel of which they are justifiably proud. Standing on the Sognefjord the views are stunning. The public rooms in the older part of the hotel are lovely and contain many works of art collected over four generations. We stayed in the 1960s block, and the room was comfortable, warm and adequately furnished. The view... More

This hotel was the perfect base for a wonderful holiday. Excellent location right alongside Sognefjord at Balestrand. Excellent buffet style breakfast and evening dinner with a host of different dishes to choose from. Very friendly and helpful staff throughout. Take a travel kettle + tea/coffee as there are no facilities in the rooms.

Have just returned from a wonderful Norwegian experience. The hotel was an excellent base and a good choice by Newmarket Holidays. All the staff were friendly and our requests were dealt with promptly and efficiently. Kviknes hotel is steeped in History and the family are justifiably proud of their inheritance which was evident from the talk given by one of... More

Just back from a superb escorted tour of Norway with Newmarket Travel. How they could offer the tours, accommodation and such skilful guides for the price is a mystery. The best, and best holiday, I have had. We were based at the Kviknes Hotel, Balastrand, which has taken some stick on these pages. The rooms maybe a bit basic, but... More

Wonderful hotel in a beautiful fjord setting. Food excellent with plenty of choices,especially the desserts. Clean rooms although the decor of some of the modern part may not be to everyone's taste, however that said the comfortable beds cannot be faulted. Friendly and attentive staff are happy to assist.

Spent 7 days here what a fantastic hotel. There are lots of negativity on here regarding this hotel referring to the "ugly new build" I was sceptical of what to expect, I needn't have worried it's nothing like people have said it's great. So don't be put off. There is a free rowing boat you can take out for as... More

I have been to few places where you can enjoy views like these in Kviknes. The rooms are big, with lot of light, confortable beds and well supplied. But the views of the fiord... You will forget about anything else!! It is a historical hotel and when you walk through it is like being in a hotel. Just perfect, really!

One of the nicer hotels in Norway. We were only there one night but wish it was longer. The smorgasbord is spectacular. We were lucky enough to get a room upgrade that gave us a fjord view and balcony. The rooms was large by European standards. There are free rowboats for guests if you are up to a little exercise...

My husband and I have just returned from a week in Norway staying at the Kviknes Hotel, Balestrand. Breathtaking location on the fjord with lovely grounds. Ferries link to other areas especially the fast ferry to Bergen. Everything was perfect. Friendly and helpful staff and wonderful food. Can't fault it. Highly recommended.
