A real relic from the past. This classic mountain hotel is steeped in over 100 years of history. If you're wanting modern creature comforts like TVs, you'll be disappointed, although you will get free wifi. Location-wise, it is above and about 30m away from the Vorinfossen viewing platform so you can't actually see the waterfall from your room but you can damn well hear it, which works as a great tranquiliser at night. The staff were friendly and obviously proud of this historical hotel. In the foyer you can read all about the man who founded and developed the hotel and the dining room is huge and impressive. The Swedish table of a morning will also not disappoint. I stayed here for 1 night and regret having spent the other two nights of my Eidfjord escape in another hotel as this one's charm is worth the 10-15 minute trip up the mountain from town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Fossli Hotel is situated at the innermost end of the Hardanger Fjord. The hotel affords a magnificent view over the Mabo Valley and the 182m Voringsfoss Waterfall. The hotel is tastefully and comfortably designed by the famous Norwegian architect Konow Lund. It was build in 1891, which was 25 years before the road was build, and all the materials were carried on horseback to the top. Edvard Grieg used to be a regular guest at Fossli Hotel and wrote his Opus 66 here. Fossil Hotel today offers 60 rooms, a nice restaurant, a café, and a fully licensed bar. ... more less
