    Historic hotel in Norway

    Nice old hotel with ugly, well worn wing. No tea or coffee in the room. The buffet breakfast is ok but the smorgasbord dinner is excellent.

    gorgeous fjordside setting

    Definitely recommend -- but just don't forget your shampoo because besides a box of kleenex there are no little bottles, bars or showercap. Had to ask for another towel to use as a bathmat. Breakfast buffet which is included is wonderful, and the village of Balestrand idylic.

    Amazing location

    The hotel is in an amazing location. Magnificent views are seen from every location in the hotel, and there are many gorgeous places to sit outside as well. The art and antique furniture in the lobby areas is beautiful. It is a truly unique hotel that is able to match the magnificence of the fiords. The staff was incredibly helpful, polite, and friendly. We wouldn't hesitate returning if we were in Norway again.

    Best Hotel in Balestrand

    I did a lot of research before arriving at my decision to stay at the Kviknes. The rooms are slightly dated (quick tip: spend the extra cash for a room with a view) but the restaurant, cafe, and gift shop are the best!

    location, location

    The view of the hotel was fabulous as we arrived on the ferry. We loved sitting on the veranda at the front overlooking the fjord. We were supposed to be in the new wing, but they gave us 2 rooms that adjoined thru the bathroom in the old part. They were nicely decorated and had the best view. Only problem was no lift. Lots of stairs. Breakfast was delicious. The hotel has lots of history and has tons of antigue decoration.
