As it says a quiet place, time to reflect while staying in an old world charming hotel. The food is good, the historical rooms basic but very comfortable and with amazing views. Lots of nature trails, trip to Flam, very busy,trip to vik for the stab church, interesting.Balestrand village has some super wooden houses, good information boards. All in all a good place to see the quiet style of Norway.

I must start by saying that you don't stay in this part of the world for modern amenities and a big city hotel experience. You stay here to feel like what it's like to get away from the Nutshell crowds, to slow down, and appreciate one of the most amazing views of natural beauty in the world. For the people who complain about the lack of modern conveniences, get over yourself and don't travel to this part of Norway or Scandinavia.

I loved the view of the fjord, the quiet of the hotel and village and the charm of the roads around the hotel. I loved the smorgasbord dinner and the hostess and server were both very accommodating to help me celebrate my partner's birthday with a surprise candle in a selection of the desserts. The woman at the front desk who checked us in was so sweet and helpful. You could tell she hadn't been jaded by life. And who could be if you lived in this town?

Would I have liked to see the amenities of the room, the hallway and the door updated? Sure. Will I hold it against the hotel? Absolutely not. The old world charm and getting away from it all were worth the experience. I highly recommend this hotel.

A magnificent location on Sognefjord. Well-furnished and very attractive public rooms. Good breakfast. The cost is, however, excessive. I returned to the hotel because of nostalgic memories of my first visit in 1961, when the cost was much less.

Tired, shabby and in need of major refurbishment. We were fully aware this was a historical building and indeed some of the public rooms are captivating and delightful. The reception area connecting the historic building and what can only be described as the 1960's type concrete erection next to it is dull and underwhelming. You could be forgiven for thinking you had strayed in to an old folks home and I'm not talking about the clientele. There was a unrelenting stream of coach tours whose groups dominated the public spaces and dining room and indeed we were told that the dining room would not put out croissants in the morning until the coach parties had departed. We only had breakfast there but the selection was poor and 'hot' dishes were tepid even if you arrived when the dining room opened. Turning to our room, we had undoubtedly one of the best in the building. Spacious, clean and a magnificent view across the Fjord. I could forgive the 'antique' furniture as it was in keeping with the age of the property but I could not forgive the ancient electrics, exposed pipework running across the ceiling and the equally antique TV which must have been c 1980. The shower was probably one of the best we had in Norway but the bathroom itself was dated. The corridors leading to the bedrooms defy description, poorly lit, threadbare carpets and the doors to the rooms looked like the cheap plywood ones you have in a downmarket American motel.
Two redeeming features were the staff and location. The hotel is beautifully situated and all the staff we met were friendly, welcoming and helpful.
I get that this is an old building but really you can sympathetically restore and modernise without compromising original features. This hotel is not just resting on its laurels, it is positively in a deep coma.

Room Tip: IF you must stay here, room 222 has a large balcony and glorious views.

Our Fjord Pass reservation for 7/6/2013 for a double room, which we upgraded to a double room with a view, was a joke. We had a closet like room with 2 twin beds nailed to opposite sides of the room. Their "Late Modern" classification means old motel furniture with a small television that doesn't work. The room was poorly appointed, no glasses, all of the amenities were public restroom type dispensers. On top of it all our view included a crane and a major construction site.
Our visit to the bistro was equally dissapointing. The food was terribly prepared, with the exception of the crayfish soup, and the service was painfully slow. It took nearly 2 hours to get sandwiches. Then, the "coffee table " was devoid of coffee !
We were sadly sadly dissapointed. The old part of the hotel is as beautiful as stated, and the surroundings are gorgeous. However we were not prepared for the state of the "late modern" addition, nor the parking lot overflowing with tourist busses.
