We only had two nights at the hotel on this trip but if we had known how good the hotel was and in such a beautiful location we would definitely have planned to stay longer. Our room overlooked the fjord and to wake up in the morning and look out of the window at the calm waters of the majestic fjord and the stunning snow capped mountains opposite was a real treat.
The staff were all so friendly and the buffet in the restaurant was amazing, so much to choose from.
There are so many facilities at the hotel and ample lounges so that you never feel as though you are in a crowded room.
We will definitely go back to the Ullensvang, a truly beautiful hotel in a stunning location.

I stayed at Hotel Ullensvang for 3 days during a conference. It is a classic hotel with a lot of nice details. Thay also have lots of facilities like indoor/outdoor swimming pool, tennis, gym, sauna etc. The meals at the restaurant was nice with elements of the local food traditions. I got sick one of the days during my stay and the staff was most helpful with food in the room etc. The scenery around the hotel is spectacular. The overall impression of the hotel is clean and tidy!

This will always be one of my favorites. This elegantly relaxed resort is located in one of the most magic fjord landscapes Norway has to offer. Being a family owned property for generations, it has a unique mix of tradition and modern style, and the staff seems to be carefully selected for their positive and caring spirit. The buffet, both breakfast and dinner, are a feast for the eye (and challenge for the bathroom scale :).
To cut it short: It's the one place you shouldn't miss out if you are traveling in this area.

Room Tip: Go for the room with fjord view if at all available

What a wonderful stay we had. Great rooms, incredible view to the Fjord. The buffet in the evening was just incredible, what a choice of different fish, lobster, crabs, you name it.
If we come back to the area, then we will visit again, for sure.

Room Tip: Important to have a view to the Fjord.

We, a family of four, to adults and two children, stayed at Hotell Ullensvang for one night during the Easter holiday.
Not a typically modern and minimalistic style, however a authentic and charming hotell. Very pleasantly surprised by the rooms. Had booked garden view but got an upgrade to a mountain and fjord view. Magnificent view. Great room with living room with sofa, in addition to two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Playroom for the children. Bowling, tennis, childrens activities and indoor and outdoor heated pools.
Dinner buffet and breakfast included in the price. Both with a great selection of fresh food. The cake buffet alone is worth a visit.
Would love to come back.

After a long search for a hotel to stay in the Fjords region, I finally found my place, and what a great property!! We spent 4 nights there (I wished we could have stayed more) and we loved it! I booked our stay on the website and it was quick and easy.

The moment we arrived we were greated right outside by a little boy with nice typical clothes and scorted to the reception area. So we had a surprise, we were upgraded for the Honeymoon Suite on the top floor with magnificient views of Hardanger Fjord, a very nice touch!! The hotel is runned by a nice family where the owner him self came to talk to us to know if everything was alright, and he did it twice in 4 days!!

We opted for the half board rate which was the best thing we did because there are just few places around the hotel and none restaurant is better than the hotel's buffet. Breakfast and dinner are awesome, all you can eat!

The hotel has a long outside pool facing the Fjord - very nice - and another one inside for swimming, both heated. The facilities also include sauna, fitness center, a tennis court and squash. Rowing and paddle boats are available if you want to go for a ride across the Fjord, just ask the reception guys.

You better have a car if you want to see everything the region has to offer, otherwise you will be limited. We drove from Oslo so I don't know if they have car rentals around there, check this out before you go. This hotel has a perfect location to explore the region and it was our base for the day trips, some close and quick and some not so close and with all day duration, as the famous Trolltunga trail (must be in a good shape, it's strenuous).

I have no complaints about our stay, we only had perfect moments there. The staff is great, everyone, from housekeeping until the owner. We loved the hotel and we'll come back for sure!!! Highly recommended...

Room Tip: Get a room facing the Fjord.

Dear RodolphoBorges

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such a kind and detailed review of your stay at Hotel Ullensvang.

It is a great pleasure to read how much you enjoyed the stay with us, including the suite you stayed in, dining at our restaurant and the breakfast during your stay. Furthermore we are pleased to learn that the Hotel Ullensvang team made you feel at home and was able to contribute to the positive experience with us. Rest assured that we have already shared your encouraging comments with our employees.

With regards to the rental car: there is no car rental in the area. When choosing public transportation, one can either arrive by train/bus as well as bus/boat during the summer months. You have for sure more flexibility with your own car when exploring the nearby area.

We look very much forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

Yours sincerely,
Barbara Zanoni Utne

I stayed there at the beginning of Dec, and I don't think hotel's that full.

I upgraded my room to Fjord view, but they assigned me a room at old wing (i think). Rooms at that wing is so traditional (a bit too traditional i think), however, their swimming pool's so nice, all other facilities are so resort feel, buffet dinner's excellent, so many choices and taste's very good! However, the services at their restaurant's just average, maybe they treat us as a group :(

Dear CalvinChoi129

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review on tripadvisor.

Your comments are much appreciated and it’s nice to read you liked the facilities, swimming pool and the food.

The upgrade to a fjord view certainly is worth it - the view is stunning. All of our guests and hence tripadvisor contributors agree on that. We are a historical hotel where we take good care of traditions, this is also reflected in our rooms.

We hope to be able to welcome you back!

Yours sincerely,
Barbara Zanoni Utne
