The setting is breathtaking, i.e., the fjord in its entirety. The hotel is high above the fjord and have an excellent view up the fjord and the access road from the north. There is no point staying here unless you have a fjord view room as the hotel is a standard 4- establishment catering primarily to bus tourists. There is an a la carte restaurant with a menu limited to 2 options per course but it enables you to eat away from the barn like buffet area. The food was reasonavly well cooked but the steak was a bit tough. As with all Norwegian hotels and restaurants, it was relatively expensive - certainly for food and wine - but that's Norway. The spectacle justifies the stay which, coupled with a fjord cruise, is well worth it.
