A 5-minute walk from the ferry dock. The staff picks up your bags on arrival so that you don't have to pull your luggage up the hill.  Look for the green Volvo wagon.  Free WiFi.  Friendly, very helpful staff. Small, basic, yet comfortable rooms. Sitting room with books, a few games, and complimentary afternoon tea. Free basic breakfast (cereal, fruit... More

Unique,old-style hotel, with lots of character. Large spacious public areas including an expansive deck. Our room was large with sitting area and bedroom; spacious bathroom; large deck with two doors out to the deck. Wonderful fresh air for sleeping because of the two doors to the deck. Squeaky floors added to the charm. The beds were too soft to the... More

We stayed in the Balestrand Hotel at the beginning of July. We paid a little extra for a fjord-side room, and were so pleased we did. The view from the room (or indeed the balcony) was truly spectacular. The staff (mainly mother and daughters) were friendly and very helpful, the breakfasts were good and the sitting area was a lovely... More

If you want the fjords nearby, but also like a quiet peaceful location, Balestrand is ideal as is the hotel of the same name. If coming by ferry, the hotel staff will transport your luggage while you stroll about five minutes to the hotel. Unna-Marie the proprietor was always helpful and gave us great tips for hiking and biking. We... More

We loved our entire 3 night stay. The service is absolutely wonderful! At check-in, Unni-Maria greeted us warmly and spent time helping us to plan our activities. We are avid hikers so she recommended the Waterfall Hike and the Raudmelen Hike – both excellent. And she loaned us trekking poles which were extremely helpful since Raudmelen is rather steep. The...

I really appreciated the owners picking up our bags upon arriving from the ferry, allowing a nice stroll from the harbour into town. I love the hotel is family run and all the staff were warm and accommodating, great for tips on walks and things to do. Our room was meticulously clean and cozy comfy, plus had a small patio...

We really enjoyed all aspects of our experience with this smaller hotel in Balestrand. This family run establishment is very interested in assuring a positive stay. The views are stunning from the fjord rooms. The beds are very comfortable. Your luggage is taken from ferry stop to the hotel for you. It is a short walk to town. Loved our... More

We had a top floor fjord view room - very nice to hear the ocean. The inn has a large common room with books and interesting local artwork. Very good breakfast. Gracious hosts met us at the dock, service was great, and the place is well maintained.

Stayed here in July 2015 as part of a family holiday travelling around Norway last summer (me, my wife, our 4 year old daughter and also the grandparents). We decided that we would break up the Flam to Bergen boat journey overnight and picked on Bergen because we liked the look of this hotel. It was great. The rooms are... More

Great hotel in a good location overlooking the fjord. It was lovely to sit out on our balcony admiring the spectacular view. The staff (the owner and her daughters) were all very friendly and helpful. The helped us to plan our hikes everyday, provided us with maps, and helped us to plan our drive to our next stop in Geiranger.... More
