We loved our stay at this hotel and would go back there if ever in Geiranger again, as long as we had the same room!!
We had booked this room 8 months before visiting and had asked for a room as high up the building as possible. We were given room 702 so had outstanding views. The balcony was long and perfect for sitting and taking in the scenery and activity going on around the place. The room was clean and light and comfortable. The bathroom was large by European and Norwegian standards, you could watch a liner cruise into port while you have a shower. Room was also very quiet.
Only thing is, you need to carry luggage up one flight of stairs, this was not a problem for us.
Also by Norwegian standards, the dinner (275 NOK pp) was good value.
I was happy with the breakfast selection but Hubby, who has cooked breakfast said the bacon was very fatty and sat in a layer of fat:-(
The staff happily filled our thermos each morning with hot water for our impromptu stops on our travels. They were always helpful and friendly.
We needed laundry facilities and used them in the camp ground below.
Loved the tea/coffee machine where you could help yourself to a hot drink anytime you want.

This wooden hotel is wonderfully located over the Geiringer Fjord . It is about 1 km from city center but is quiet and sits over a camping site which adds to the atmosphre. Rooms are very nice and breakfast is rich. The dinner buffet is great. Staff was very kind and polite. Warmly Recommended

This is a lovely hotel with every room overlooking the fjord. The room was spacious and clean. Each room had a balcony to sit and watch the cruise ships come to port. breakfast was ample. the buffet dinner was expensive, but alm food is in Norway. The food was varied and good. Front desk was helpful.

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.
