Owned and operated by the Laegreid family this hotel is located in a quiet area of Sogndal, and while the outside appeal is not great, the inside of the hotel to us is the best Best Western we have ever encountered. Warmly welcomed by Mr. Laegreid, he advised us to forgo a fjord view room, since our arrival coincided with the start of summer school recess, and revelers are expected in the covered outdoor area of the hotel restaurant/pub to sit and talk until very late. He assigned us a 3rd floor room in the back of the hotel, and the room could not have been any quieter or more comfortable, so that we slept until almost 9.a.m., the longest in any hotel in Scandinavia.
Dark wood paneling, dark leather couches and chairs, gilded mirrors, and lots of polished brass in the lobby and seating area give rise to a classy, rich ambiance. Our room was rather large, comfortably spacious, and elegantly furnished. As to be expected from a Best Western hotel, the room was appointed with all one needs for a comfortable stay. The room and the tidy bath with a glass enclosed shower were spotless. Leather wingback chairs were without doubt the most comfortable seating we found in any hotel room, including in 5-star facilities in Scandinavia.
Dinner prepared by Mrs. Laegreid was delicious. The breakfast buffet offered the typical Scandinavian spread and certainly satisfied our desires. Being limited in accommodations to only 40 rooms, this hotel is spared the loud presence of bus tour groups. The owners are very concerned for guests to have a nice stay in their hotel and Sogndal, and they patiently dispense information about the town and farther afield. A computer terminal/printer station in the lobby is free for guest use. Free parking is available in front of the hotel. Being centrally located, shops, supermarket, postal counter, and tourist information are all within a few minutes walk. All in all, the Laegreid Best Western proved to be a great place to stay for a few days while exploring the area. Solvorn, the Urnes stave church, and glaciers are all within a reasonable driving distance.
