We had originally booked a room at a hotel in a different more centralized touristy area. Unfortunately the owner of that place passed away, the hotel went into probate, and we had to scramble to get another room elsewhere. We could not find what we wanted in that area and finally booked this hotel in Balestrand. I remember being concerned about it being more difficult to get to and far away from the things we wanted to do. It turned out to be our favorite hotel and our favorite location of our trip. The room was clean, neat, quiet, well maintained, I have no complaints. The staff was friendly and helpful. The front rooms have fjord views. The back rooms have a hillside view. Our room was on the ground floor in the back, so we had a delightful little patio to sit on with flowers and a boulder that had water flowing over it Breakfast was OK, no better or worse than most. The parking for cars can be a little tricky. Someone at the hotel seems to be a Japanese Maple tree aficionado, and the other landscaping was pretty as well. The town center is a short walk away. When we finally packed up to leave Balestrand, I had tears in my eyes because it was so beautiful and peaceful and I did not want to go.

Simply put, the only place we'll stay in Balestrand our favorite Norway lodging. Owners Unni Marie and Eric maintain their property meticulously and deliver 1st class guest service. Friendly, helpful and kind, great owners; wonderful suggestions for local activities, trails, etc. Generous lounge with large windows over looking fyord. Easy 3 minute walk to village centre but Eric meets you at the ferry dock to pick up your luggage and also delivers luggage to the dock on your departure day. On our departure day, they also allowed us to store our luggage & delivered to the dock for our 4:55 ferry to Bergen. Some reviews noted that the room was small but it was quite adequate for us. I wondered if we would feel boxed in - no way. Plus, between our balcony and the spacious lounge area, we had options.... Full breakfast. Reserve early to get a room with a fyord view; windows on the rear side have a mountain view. We appreciated talented Eric's devotion to preserving vintage items, including the highly stunning vintage carved door on the 2nd floor landing. If you're traveling by ferry, make sure you are at the dock early. If Norled captain sees no one on the dock, they don't stop. Unni Marie and Eric gave us this tip and we were grateful. We traveled in late May/early June, an ideal time to see Norway - favorable weather and less crowded. Even then several village shops & cafes were open. Tusen tak, Unni Marie and Eric. I hope that our paths cross again.

We couldn't get a water view room when we booked, but asked to be put on the waitlist if one came up. Lucky for us, we managed to get a water view room on arrival, due to a late cancellation. The view of Sognefjord is stunning from the hotel but even better from the room balcony, and worth the extra dollars if you can afford it! Complimentary pick up and drop off at the main harbour was much appreciated. The breakfast was as expected. We were given some recommendations for dinner and where to walk, all in all, a very enjoyable overnight stay at this hotel, can highly recommend!

Great little hotel owned and managed by a lovely and very helpful couple. Superb buffet breakfast in a quaint dinning room. Plenty of off street parking. Lift to each floor. Well located for easy walking through the neat small town. Fronts on the Sognefjord which is fabulous.
