We stayed at the Vossestrand Appartments for 5 nights in the middle of August. We arrived very late at night due to the Gudvangen Tunnel being shut and not knowing this before time (Grrr) and a 4 hour detour later we arrived at 1am. The staff were very understanding and made sure we were comfortable before leaving us to rest. Both my wife and I were relieved when we saw the quality of the appartment and even wondered if there might be amistake knowing how little we were paying!
The next morning we awoke to find ourselves in very quite and serene surroundings. The hotel sits at approx. 550m above sea level and the view down the valley is wonderful. Voss is approx. 25 minutes away and to be fair, once I had seen it once, I had no strong desire to see it again. The Klatrapark (Norways answer to Go Ape) is 15 minutes dribe, Voss Rafting Center 25 minutes drive, Gudvangen (for the Norway in a nutshell fjord cruise to Flam) is about 30 minutes, but you do need to have your own car. Just be careful though, getting around Norway by road is a slow business and if you break the very low speed limit, prepare for a hefty fine when you get home. We drove to Bergen (2 hours) 80kmph most of the way I unfortunately crept up to 88kmph at one point and found a ticket in the doorstep when I returned home. £175!!!
Norway is a devastatingly beautiful country and you could not stop at a nicer place to enjoy this particular part of it. We paid about £325 for 5 nights for 4 of us, we would struggle to find a Travelodge for that money in the UK, so it was exceptional value for money.
