8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great view up the fjord from the room. Convenient to the ferry and a short distance to Balestrand.
Cons: There were more guests than seats for breakfast. The dinner we had was so, so. The room lacked space for more than 1 suitcase; no drawers to unpack.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice garden furniture and views.
9.7 Excellent
Pros: Location gives it amazing views of fjords, bays and mountains. Friendly helpful staff. Nice walks close by, both around the shoreline and up the mountain and into the forest
Cons: The hotel is 7km from Balestrand ferry terminal. This means it is quieter, but there are only about 4-5 buses a day to Dragsvik - Balestrand. This meant we had to book their shuttle service.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly welcome and homely feel from this family run hotel Very bright and clean room - a suite in fact in the house attached to the hotel. Beautiful views though it was very misty for us!
Cons: This was fine for us as a one night stopover. However if you want this area as more of a base you might be better off in Balestrand so you have more options for food. Having said that the meal we had in the hotel was very good if a bit basic; as was breakfast.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing storage and view in our suite
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location and views were amazing. The hotel had plenty of spaces to sit and contemplate. The dinner was great and reasonably priced (for Norway). Buffet breakfast was amazing with plenty of food and variety. The attention to detail in just the presentation of it was incredible! The staff were helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to people passing through Dragsvik.
Cons: No complaints about this delightful hotel.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: what an amazing hotel this is ... in between two beautiful views . Sandwich between amazing scenery and amazing location. we got a full apartment which can easily fit 6 people ( we are 3 ) . Amazing room with lot of facilities and kitchen. we stayed there for a day but would have known how good it is ...i would have done at least 3 days :) Amazing lady at the reception helped us and explained few things. We also loved the extra spaces in the hotel where u can just sit and immerse yourself in nature .
Cons: Nothing.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff were lovely. The location was brilliant. The building was also lovely. The meals were great.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Cozy and comfortable hotel placed in wonderful place with a view on both: Esefjord and Fjaerlandfjord. Staff was helpful and very welcoming. There is possible to order a transport from hotel to ferry pier in Balestrand so if you are not traveling by car - it could be handy. Delicoius breakfast.
Cons: It's hard to say what could be better. Missing TV in the room could be the issue if not the amazing view. The price was high but not higher than level expected in Norway. Lasagna for a dinner was served directly from microwave, but salmon has been delicious. To be honest, I can find anything more what was not great

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great, smiling, helpful staff. The reseptionist is super helpful and kind, ready to give you advices for fishing spot on the fiord or for some hiking. Just great. The girls working in the cleaning and in the breakfast do a hell of a job, especially the one with red hair. It is super clean, the rooms are wonderful and it is really close to shops and shore. I will come back one day and enjoy again its peacefulness!
Cons: Small details. The building is old and you can see some old wall now and then in the corridors or in the stairs but not in the rooms, which are great. Breakfast is nice but it offer little variety. It could be definitely better. The kitchens are ok but they really need basic tools like cutting boards, kitchen knives, chairs for adults, more cutlery and so on.

Pros: This hotel was one of our favorites during our 10 day stay in Norway. It was comfortable, clean and the staff were extremely friendly. The hotel also has a kitchen and self service laundry room with washing machine and dryer for guests to use. Good breakfast too.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great view from my room. Clean and very pleasant room. Loved having a kitchen/laundry. 3 mins walk to the ferry. A kettle and tea in the room. A balcony.
Cons: All good but..if you are catching the early boat best check out the night before. I forgot and reception opens quite late.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is located in heart of Balasttrand. It is very close to the ferry for those who come from S.ognefjord. The staff was very helpfull and smiling. The room is big enough for 2 adult and 2 years old baby to stay. The view of the room is AMAZING.
Cons: The bathroom definitely needs some alterations. It is not quite suit with the hotel. The breakfast could have been better. There is not an elevator in the hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Love it. The owner was exceptionally helpful. And, directed me to a wonderful location.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The terrace with fjord view. The bed and the floor in the room are new.
Cons: Bathroom is very small. Showering will make the whole bathroom floor wet.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The neighbourhood was serene and relaxed. The hotel was very casual and family owned and run.
Cons: There could have been a fan in the rooms. We stayed during summer and it was pretty warm till the sun set.
4.2 Okay
Pros: Clean rooms, although bathroom was still wet, not sure whether was from cleaning or previous guest
Cons: I probably got the worst room in the hotel--had no view, rooms are very small, and beds are more like army bunks--with nice linen. Even tho wifi advertised, couldn't use it, password didn't work. Hotel did have common areas with working Internet, TV, etc, but would be nice to have that in a room. Rooms had no tv, and only 2 pieces of soap. The sink in the bathroom was very low, as designed for a child. And to my knowledge hotel had no elevator, so if u get a room on 4 th floor, good luck dragging heavy bags up there. Lucky I was traveling alone, and stayed there only 1 night. There're better hotels in town, so spend a bit more , and be comfortable
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This quaint hotel has amazing views, a great breakfast and helpful, friendly staff. Wish we had stayed two bightz
Cons: Common areas are a bit dated but the room decor is excellent,

Cons: The addition in the 60's doesn't match the beauty of the original hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, excellent service, comfortable beds, breakfast included, beautiful fjord scenery
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location in Balestrand...right on the water. Great staff. Fantastic, but pricey, buffet dinner. The view from rooms in the tower facing the water cant be beat, if in the higher floors (6-8)
Cons: Tower rooms need a refresh. Tour groups can have exclusive access to the impressive historic public spaces, shutting out the independent traveler.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: View to the fjord , clean room, comfortable , staffs were friendly , big rooms , location was perfect , nice private balcony...
Cons: Lack of electric kettle in rooms... breakfast could be better...
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel with extraordinary decor in a beautiful setting. Well equipped rooms and bathrooms. Polite staff and smooth/ quick check in. Excellent breakfast spread. Pricey overall but well worth it. Beautiful view from rooms, most rooms have balconies with fjord views.
Cons: One would have expected more games in a hotel of this size and quality. The one TT table seemed insufficient. while a regular coffee was included in breakfast, one would have to pay extra for a cup of cappucino. Seemed a bit of a overkill for a 4 star.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Classic charm in a spectacular location. Nice staff who are eager to please. Terrific hiking just out the door with awesome views for your effort.
Cons: The majority of guests are housed in a modern annex behind the historic hotel. We were among them. After getting over the disappointment of not rooming in the historic section, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
6.3 Good
Pros: Location, age, history and charm. Filled with antiques and art from early 19th century
Cons: No coffee in the room or freely available when wanted. Have to purchase the breakfast buffet and wait to be served a coffee. No ice-makers/ice buckets. Only two 6oz tiny juice glasses and a bathroom sink. They previously had mini-fridges, but you can see where they were removed. It’s clear the goal is to drive you to the bar. To meet your biological needs your forced to drink water from the bathroom sink. It’s not worth the extra profit to do this to your guests.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Stunning location, beautiful fjord views. Amazing buffet dinner. Very nice & hospitable staff.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location. Building. Staff.
6.7 Good
Pros: Location and food
Cons: The level of the room is quite poor and the view of the fjord from the room was much beyond expectations
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location right next to the marina is perfect. It's also close to the handful of restaurants in town.
Cons: The room amenities were rather disappointing. I would expect a hotel of this caliber to provide shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, etc., but all that was provided was a hand soap dispenser in the by the sink and in the shower. Also, no wash cloth linens.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff were amazing!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Thé gentleman greeted us from our ferry and took our bags to the hotel. The location of the property is sublime!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The above-mentioned small deficit was outweighed by both the friendliness & helpfulness of both the owner and the small staff. Whilst definitely not 5 star accommodation & rooms are a little frayed. It would be somewhere I would highly recommend.
Cons: My only complaint is that the walls seperating the rooms are a little thin.
8.3 Excellent

Cons: Bathroom was just OK.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Location, location, location! Helpful Owner who meets each ferry so dealing with luggage/finding hotel a breeze. Generous breakfast buffet. Welcoming public areas.
Cons: We didn’t miss it - you can watch the view endlessly- but no TV in room might be a negative for some.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Location was great. Jon was at the boat when we arrived in the rain so it was off to a great start when we didn’t have to drag our luggage to the hotel even though it was only a quick drive.
