If you are planning to go there, keep in mind that the place is not a 5 star, however if you are in Balestrand it is enough.
The rooms are spartan and the bathroom is very small.
The owner is nor very friendly but can give the main tips in the village.
Breakfast has a good quality and variety.
First of all you're not going to stay in a nice wooden building that is present on most of pictures - it is only for family use. Instead you will stay in a concrete communist-style 4-storey block from the fifties that is conviniently hidden behind the wooden palace. So the owners are purposefully misleading guests from the very beginning. Secondly, the rooms are quite tired, old and stink of mould. The owners tried to hide the smell with the cheap air refreshener which made matter even worse. To open the window doesn't help. So don't go there if you're allergic or sensitive to unhealthy environments - instead of refreshing sleep I woke up sick and tired. The rooms are small, beds were in use for too many years (you need to put some desk under them to be able to sleep). Not enough parking places so we ended up parking a car practically in the middle of a road. In spite of all that the owner is not shy to charge a 4-star rate for his "hotel". This is the worst kind of a tourist business you could meet - would never expect to see this in Norway. I can sum up that staying in this hotel totally ruined my experience of Balestrand.
