“Fab views lovely hotel”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

This was a lovely hotel - I was pleasantly surprised by the room as some reviewers had commented on it being dated but our room was modern, spacious with a balcony that had a great view of the fjord. It was an extremely comfortable room - the staff were very welcoming and helpful too. I had brought some champagne and were happy to send me up glasses & ice bucket to my room. The only downside of the hotel is that it's a long walk into the village/port on a main road with no pavement. Not much problem , but when arriving with suitcases it's not easy. A pickup service from the hotel would be a nice service to offer as it only takes a minute in a car and for a sizeable hotel in this location I'm surprised they don't. So that is the only reason I didn't give 5 stars. In really enjoyed my 2 night stay there and the scenery is incredible. Especially the dalsnibba viewpoint and the skagefla walk.

Beautiful view from the room and balcony. Easy access to activities at the campground just below the hotel. (We rented a small boat.). Would not recommend this hotel for people without a car as the road from the harbor is not well suited for pedestrians.

Nice hotel with great views of the fjord - particularly from the restaurant on the top floor.
Room was big and spacious, although the bathroom was very small. Beds were a bit too soft for us - not quite comfortable.
Looks a bit old, and this is reflected in the very slow lift.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is close to a kayak rental place - Active Geiranger - which was convenient for us.
Parking is free, and it's a short drive to town, which worked very well for us.
Breakfast was ok - could do with a bit more fruit.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Grande Fjord Hotel in Geiranger. The fjord and town are wonderful and definitely worth at least 2-3 days. The rooms at the hotel were average in size, but had free wifi and were clean and quiet, with FABULOUS views from the balconies. The staff were very helpful, with lots of knowledge of the local sights and trails, and the breakfast and dinner buffets were excellent! The only downside is that the hotel is a 20minute walk from the main part of Geiranger along a road with no sidewalk. However a lot of services were available right there in the area around the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a fjord view room, for sure! Restaurant is on the 6th floor.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights in July 2014. First impressions are of a hotel that is clean and well maintained with friendly efficient staff. A lift is available to all floors. Our room was on the fifth floor with a balcony overlooking the fjord. You could not dream of a better view from a hotel balcony. Comfortable beds.

A self service buffet dinner of a very good quality and at a reasonable price was available on the sixth floor restaurant which again had magnificent views of the fjord. The chef came out to speak to guests at the end of the meal showing confidence in the quality of the food provided.

Breakfast was of a high standard.

We would return here when we are next in the area without question.

The fjord is a Unesco Heritage site. It is spectacular. The town itself, at the base of the fjord, is small and touristy. Huge cruise ships come for the day, ferries ply their trade, the souvenir shop makes a killing, eg a medium-sized bag of crisps costs £3.50. A mile away, built into the hillside, is the Grand fjord hotel, overlooking the water. Breathtaking !
Family-owned, friendly, with young, smiling summer staff ( the hotel is only for 3 months in the summer), it is clean and functional. Free parking and complementary tea and coffee are a bonus. Our 5th floor room, with balcony, had stunning views : Geiranger town to the left, and the rest of the fjord to the right. There is a small campsite at the bottom of the hotel, but it is smart and civilised; no noise at night. There was one downside for me. I am a light sleeper and the extractor fan outside our room at the end of the corridor, was noisy, even with the door shut. The owner could not understand what the fuss was about when I went down at midnight ( "no one has complained in 15 years"), and reluctantly turned it down to a lower setting. A little gruff, his son,however, the heir-apparent, is a charmer, works exceptionally hard and has a good grasp of customer care needs. Go and stay; the breakfasts are vast, and delicious, and the buffet dinners well worth it : very reasonable and in a dining room with unrivalled views.

Room Tip: Ask for a fjord view room as high up as possible. You probably wont find a better place to eat dinne...

We loved this hotel, especially the wonderful views overlooking the fjord. Our room had a balcony looking out onto the fjord and although the room was slightly dated it didn't prevent us from thoroughly enjoying our stay. The restaurant and breakfast were OK. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
