My wife and I are advocates of Macs Adventures—-a Scottish touring company that caters to hikers around the world. Macs Adventures lines up the hotel and moves your luggage daily to the next hiking area. The hotels are always lovely—not 5 star resorts—but comfortable, friendly hotels with nice dining and drinks, and always set in gorgeous scenery with amazing backdrop views. Against this very high standard of excellence, the Strand Fjordhotel stands out relative to a large offering of great hotels. The meals (the hotel offers 1/2 board) are simple, but superb. Classic Scandinavian breakfasts (read into this healthy and tasty and simple, but with a full choice of cereals, meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, yogurts) and accompanied by a hot egg and meat entree. The same is true of the dinners—healthy, simple, delicious. The rooms are well-accompanied and they look out on a bay of the Hardanger Fjord. Majestic is but a starting compliment. The common areas include outside decks to enjoy the views, comfortable sitting rooms for coffee and reading and conversation or work (avoid at all cost). The hotel also serves as a sport hotel-offering kayaks, bicycles, paddle boats and other means to more fully enjoy the scenery of the fjord. This is not a hotel for 1-2 nights, but 4-5 nights with days full of hiking, biking, boating and soaking in the remarkable ambience of Norwegian summers. The highlight was the service. It was possible that someone was not smiling at some small moment, but we did not catch it. The owners are active in managing the hotel and exemplify service. We would be remiss to not mention Angelou—the son of the owners. We had a change of plans and he picked us up at a new location at a longer distance than expected. He could not have made our journey better. Smart, friendly and truly focused on his guests. You can always spot an owner and Angelou could not have been a better introduction to the Strand Fjordhotel. Ulvik is not a town for disco, but it is Norway at it’s finest. Friendly people. Breath-taking scenery. Fruit orchards at every turn. And of course, the Strand Fjordhotel. A must stay.

Nice rooms with a spektacular view over Hardangerfjorden. Nice terrace in front of room where you can sit and enjoy the view. But beware of the food. We thought haddock would be nice, cause fisk would be typically norwegian. But it was served very dry and overcooked and tasteless and not at all worth the price, which was quite high. Very disappointed abort that. More like a school lunch than fine dining.

Decent room, old and outdated. Okay view from the deluxe rooms. Very noisy, bathroom was very old. Shampoo was the same as handsoap… And don’t get me started on the breakfast. A single plate with the following: 1 slice of dry ham, 1 slice of salami, 2 slices of cheese, butter, 2-3 kind of jams, dry bread and a pair of croissants. You’d like some more ham? Forget about it. Another patron was berated by staff because it was only one plate per customer. The breakfast alone is worthy of a terrible rating, but since the bed was okay I’m giving it a poor rating. Do yourselves a favor… Stay away.

Booked my 2-day stay online and prepaid, was only staying for 1 day instead of 2, because of work. No refund for the night I didn’t stay. The rooms are old and not very quiet, the bed was alright. Would not recommend.

Well, I wanted to give 3 stars but that is "average/good" and this is a bit under. Old rooms without fridge and tv, no ventilation in rooms or bathroom. But it is clean despite it outdated and old. When the price of two in the high season is 160$ US we was expecting a bit more. Dinner, belgium menu funky as hell, decent breakfast but every hotel with som respect for them self do serve BACON, this didnt to that am sad to say. Friendly staff and nice view from the rooms. If it had been half the price I would have rated it as a 3 stars stay. Just for a night stay er will be back, in the low season for half the price..

On a organized group trip through Norway this was our second stop. After a tiring day driving from Oslo to Ulvik this beautifull place was just what we needed except for the rain. The rooms were ok but the setting around this hotel was breathtaking

We stayed at this hotel on the way to the fjords. I was really concerned about the cleanliness of the bathroom and the towels. The staff was not so helpful. As it is just beside the water the view was nice and that was it.

Our family of four stayed here for 4 nights in July 2019. We had been in Norway for over one week quickly worked out that things are expensive relative to what we are used to. Still when you pay AUD$425 per night for a family room, one would expect a reasonably decent standard of accommodation and level of service. This hotel was disappointing, although the views of the fjord were quite nice. It is tired and needs a refurbishment. The rooms are tiny, the walls are very thin (you can hear people in the next room having a shower and using the toilet), the kids room had two bunk beds but no windows - zero ventilation. The bathroom was quite tiny and the shower area was about 3ft by 3ft bounded by a curtain. So the whole bathroom is constantly wet. There is an internal entry to the restaurant from the rooms but staff put a chain across it so the guests have to walk outside to get to the restaurant. Breakfast was just OK - every other place we have stayed has had a decent breakfast. Service with a smile is unheard of and to top it all off, they tried to charge us for extra drinks we didn’t have when we were checking out. When my husband queried why we had 5 glasses of wine charged to us when we in fact had 4, the lady at reception countered - “that’s what you had, I served you myself” - implying we were lying. She was in fact wrong because we ordered 3 glasses of wine from her, and the 4th was ordered from another staff. This isn’t the kind of service and courtesy guests expect from a hotel that charges over AUD$400 per night. All in all it was a highly unsatisfactory stay, even if the view was very good.

This hotel is right at the fjord, which is great. The rooms have a view over the fjord. Rooms are outdated, like in many norwegian hotels. Beds are good. Shower with a curtain....... never knew it still existed, in this price category. We never tried dinner as it is buffet only. Like all hotels in Ulvik they cater groups (= busloads) of Chinese tourists. The buffet is targetted to them. We decided ro skip it. Breakfast is very simple. Not a big deal. Hotel has a great terrace right at the fjord. Staff is very efficient. Another hotel that needs some upgrading and should consider catering imdividual guests. They would be the only one in the town........
