We were in Balestrand a little ahead of the tourist season and enjoyed the serenity of Balestrand. It felt like we had the village all to ourselves. The Midtnes Hotel was a perfect spot for us. We paid the extra for a room with balcony facing the fjord and it was money well spent. The views were hypnotic. The breakfast is very good with a little of everything from muesli to meats. Our host Jon was very busy with pre-season preparations but was always available to answer questions. The beds in our room were comfortable and the bathroom was fine. Of course everything was clean and neat as a pin. Jon has original art throughout the public spaces and it is worth lingering with them before or after breakfast. One night we took the dinner at the hotel and it was very good. While it is true that the rooms are not in the quaint white building featured on the website, the rooms are in a connected building and sit above it affording better views of the fjords. Walk out the back door and up to school and start hiking up the mountain.
High speed internet is charged per half hour; no need for a fitness room - just walk out the door and cycle, hike, walk, swim (if you like cold water!).
You can pay more to stay at the Kviknes Hotel, but why? Midtnes will give you a warm welcome and you can use your savings to buy a drink in the fancy hotel and admire the carvings there.
