My brother and his family stayed at this hotel in June 2010 and highly recommended that it be part of my trip to Norway. It was excellent advice. My girlfriend and I rented a car (expensive, around $100 per day; my brother took buses) to travel from Aelesund (Alesund) to the Fjords and Runde Island. The hotel was fantastic, just about 1/2 mile from the edge of a fjord. It is an old majestic hotel. Each room is like a museum. In fact, when rooms are not occupied, they keep the doors open and have a felt rope blocking the entrance so you can look into the rooms, much like a museum house. We stayed in room #7, I believe, which is the haunted room that Linda the ghost visits at night, but only if you leave the dish of onions outside the door.
The food is incredible. Although the hotel is somewhat expensive, it was one of the best values we had in our 8 day trip in Norway. I highly recommend borrowing the bicycles and biking away from the fjord, passed the sunken lake houses, up to the next hotel. The ride back to hotel Oye is surprisingly all downhill! Great hiking in the area as well.More
