Admittedly, we were upgraded to a suite, which was really a one bedroom apartment with 1 1/2 baths. We didn't need it, but it clearly made the stay spectacular. On the way there, the cruise to the Geiranger Fjord was often breathtaking, and to be able to view it from our room was fabulous. There are waterfalls, the fjord and mountains visible from many points in the hotel. The hotel has a nice indoor/outdoor swimming area, and people really enjoyed the hot tub and patio area on a warm and sunny day The rooms were beautifully furnished and the master bath large and modern, although I don't quite get why they have showers without a door so that the water goes all over the floor. We had a fine buffet supper in the hotel. This was my favorite fjord and hotel, but by the last day we were there, the town and sights were so beseiged with cruise ships that it took away from the immense beauty of the area. The staff of the hotel was incredible and actually saved us from missing the first leg of our trip back to Oslo. They had told us we could get the bus right in front of the hotel. Fortunately, they realized that it did not stop there that day and they rushed us into town to catch the bus. Perfect finish to 2+ weeks in Norway.
