We stayed seven nights in July. Perfect location, best view anywhere, nice breakfast, extremely clean, delightful family. On the surface, the construction of the hotel looks kind of economy/industrial. But you quickly forget because everything that matters is near perfect. The rooms are well furnished and good sized. Spend extra for a room with a balcony because the view is... More

What a nice place. A view to die for. Get a room facing the fjord. A short walk from town. They pick up your luggage at the ferry. Nice proprietors. Good breakfast. Heated floor in the bathroom. Private deck. Short walk to town's restaurants. Quiet rooms.

The owner of the hotel is delightful and helpful. She helped us with a bit of trip planning as well. We stayed on the first floor, which I would recommend. We were brave enough to have a swim in the next-door beach, which was one of many trip highlights. We accidentally overslept our first night (the hotel is that quiet),... More

We spent two nights at the Balestrand Hotel and could easily have stayed two more. The hotel sits just outside of downtown Balestrand, but it is an easy 5 - 10 minute walk to anywhere in town. There are two bigger and older hotels in town but I would not consider staying at either. The Kviknes hotel is nice enough,... More

My husband and I are enjoyed our stay in Balestrand Hotel for 4 nights. The family who runs the hotel was very friendly, helpful and patient with our questions. Breakfast buffet was good. Our room was small but clean. Unfortunately all the rooms facing fjord were already booked so we had a "garden view" room. There were only minor thing... More

I loved this hotel. The views are incredible (request a room with a view and balcony) and the owner is so incredibly helpful. I haven't often experienced such kind and thoughtful service. The breakfast is good too - great fresh baked breads. Ask to have a rib boat trip with Captain Lars - you will see the most incredible views... More

This place is the living proof that an hotel does not have to be luxurious to provide with an unforgettable experience. The family that runs the place really cares about its guests, the rooms are cozy, clean and nice, and breakfast is much better than in many higher range hotels. The overall experience was excellent and this is a place... More

The Balestrand Hotel was an adequate stay. Its location is very nice, but the rooms and bathrooms are just adequate. We had a "garden" view. Perhaps if we had a fjord view, we would have enjoyed the stay more.

Stayed from 24th June 2016 for 02 days. Cant find any fault in the way the property is managed . As can be seen from other reviews the family run hotel is managed extremely professionally. Right from the way the booking was managed along with the checkin , the room, breakfast and not to be missed the lovely view from... More

The hotel is in a beautiful location with fantastic views of the fjord. The rooms are smaller but clean. The owner is on hand to great guests and is extremely helpful. Breakfast is good. They provide transportation from the ferry.
