Aurland is a beautiful little village with some picture perfect scenery all around. The lush hills, babbling river and the fjord views make this place truly delightful. Vangsgarden is extremely well located and one can catch a bus from Flam that would drop u to the Aurland bus stop. Vangsgarden is a 2 min walk from the bus stop. There... More

Spectacular views and quite reasonable too. The cottages are better than the rooms. They look out directly to the fjord, you can hear the water lapping at the walls. There's a gas, an oven, utensils and cutlery so you can even cook your own stuff. Everything is picture postcard pretty.

When we were booking in the Flam area this was the only lodging available. We had a nice room with ensuite and you can eat here as well if you wish. If you take the local road up the mountain there are fabulous views of the fjord.

Out of 4 different hotels during a roadtrip in southern Norway,- this place totally topped the scale. The location is stunning and the hole place is extremely original, quaint, quirky and fantastic charming. Great and very friendly service, nice rooms but a little small. The restaurant "Dueslaget" was what the real Norway is all about,- rustic, cosy and a superb... More

Stunning fjord location for the waterside self catering cabins, which is part of the quaintly laid out hotel. Family of four with two teenage boys, yes it's a little compact and the upstairs beds space gets quite stuffy and warm but all equipment is in good order and we spent four content days with the no. 5 cabin as our...

We stayed 4 nights there as a family of 5 with 3 children (pre-teen). There are 2 sections in this hotel - the self service cabins and rooms in the main building. We stayed in a cabin. The view from the main room of the cabin was unbeatable. Right on the fjord at water level! Cabin #6, our cabin, had... More

Stayed here two nights. The room was comfortable with plenty of space and a nice view of the fjord. The shower was amazing! The hotel is part of a complex of small buildings which feel really quaint and charming. The area is very nice and we were glad we stayed here instead of in Flåm. Service was very good and... More

The room was exactly as pictured. View of the fjord, clean and accommodating. The people were so friendly and the food in the next door pub was great. Even better was the cute and retro style outdoor eating patio with blankets and view of the fjord. Aurland is tucked away town with not much to do but plenty to see.... More

I'll be as brief as possible. This place is not a "hotel" but indoor camping style lodging, like a summer camp. This was not clear when I booked -- that's likely my bad. If you want a hotel, go to the Aurland Fjordhotel. With the above said, the location is wonderful and if you have a room on the fjord,... More

This hotel is right by the fjord, and 15 mins drive to Flam. We drove from Oslo to here, stayed 1 night and then drove to Bergen. So it was perfect for one night stay. When we arrived, we caught the last bus to Flam, got on the boat, toured the Fjord, then kindly asked the captain to drop us... More
