A very nice hotel at a reasonable price, run by a Balestrand native and her Californian husband. Rooms are large and comfortable, some with views of the fjord. Nice common areas, with a sitting room and a library. Excellent Norwegian-style buffet breakfast.
Unique Quality: - Rooms with excellent views
- Plentiful advice on the area
- Pickup/dropoff at boat dock or bus stop on request
- Internet and laundry service available (for extra cost)
Directions: From the boat dock, walk past the tourist office to the main road paralleling the fjord. Turn left and walk along the fjord (past the Kviknes Hotel). Hotel is 1/4 mile down the road on the right.
