Completely worth it. Slightly outside of Balestrand but it allows you to explore the fjords. The hotel located perfected in the peninsula of Dragsvik and the view is spectacular. Hotel offer pick up service from Balestrand. Had a room with access to balcony with unobstructed views in tranquility. Food in this hotel was amazing.

We stayed here for a week and were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived by Magnar,Anna and all the friendly staff. We came by ferry to Balestrand and were collected by mini bus and taken to the hotel. The Dragsvik Fjord Hotel stands on a peninsular with magnificent views in three directions. One could spend hours just looking out over the fjords, pure peace and tranquility. We even heard a tawny owl at night! You can sit in various different places outside the hotel, on the terrace or different spots in the garden and in the smart summer house. Our room was spacious with a small balcony and views over to Balestrand. The bed was superbly comfortable and our en suite facilities had a great shower. Looking out over the Fjaere Fjord whilst having breakfast was one of our favourite times of the day. You must try the apple cake made with apples from the orchard by the owners' mother, it's very good! After the meal, relax in the cosy lounge with a coffee, perfect. There are several cabins which you can also stay in if you wish to be more private. This hotel was an excellent base from which to explore the area and an oasis of calm. We would highly recommend this place and hope to visit again one day.

This is the best location for a hotel in the area. It’s not in Balestrand, but rather in Dragsvik which is a peninsula across the fjord from Balestrand. There’s not much in Dragsvik, other than hiking trails, so we had to be driven by Magnar (150 Krone each way) or take the bus to Balestrand each day. The bus has limited times so you need to plan accordingly. It’s a quick ride (10 min) to Balestrand, so we felt it was worth it to be away from the other hotels and restaurants and in Dragsvik where you have panoramic views from the hotel rooms. The restaurant at the hotel is mediocre for dinner but good for breakfast, which is included with room. We had two rooms - luxury and comfort. Luxury doesn’t cost much more than Comfort and much better quality. Comfort rooms have this space issue in the bathroom where the toilet encroaches into the shower space but it’s manageable. The rooms are clean and again, the views are phenomenal so you wake up to a picture perfect vision! Staff is friendly and responsive. For Norway, the price is reasonable.

We stayed here because we needed to catch the morning ferry. It was clean, but basic. The heater in my room didn’t work so they brought me a space heater. The public areas—looks negative, dining room and lobby were nicely decorated. The rooms were sparse. Basic. Shower was in the corner of the bathroom with glass doors that didn’t stay closed. No elevator. 3 floors. Food in the dining room was good for dinner and the free breakfast was nicely presented. The staff seemed eager to please.
