As others have noted, this hotel does not provide luxury accommodation. It's basic, yes, but it's clean, the beds are comfortable, and it has its own charm. The lounge area is actually really nice -- very comfortable place to sit and read or relax with a glass of wine. I followed advice from this site and booked a room with a balcony and fjord view: definitely worth the little extra money as we were rewarded on our second night with a double rainbow over the fjord! It was gorgeous.
The hotel owners (especially Uni-Marie) are very helpful with respect to providing information about sights, ferry times, and the area in general.
The breakfast is not fancy, but it's tasty and plentiful.
Balestrand is idyllic: peaceful, quiet, quaint. We stayed two nights and I wish we'd had more time there. We had a car and so were able to explore the surrounding area with some day trips. I recommend this, but it would also have been nice to take some hikes in and around Balestrand, which we did not have time to do.
