Small, family-run hotel with panoramic views to Sognefjord, Fjærlandsfjorden and Vetlefjorden. All hotel rooms have a view to the fjord, some also to Jostefonn, a part of the Jostedalsbreen glacier. Standard rooms and comfort rooms, some 3-bed rooms and cabins, also with a view to the fjord. Nice garden with sitting areas to relax. Trails and hiking tours nearby with a view. Short walk to relaxing nature park with swimming area at Lunde arboretum, about 600 meters from the hotel. The hotel is situated ca. 300 meters from Dragsvik car ferry terminal and a short drive (9 km) or bus / taxi around the charming Esefjord to Balestrand on idyllic village roads.

We stayed as a group booking. Out of season the hotel opened just for us. Magnar was a charming and helpful host. The hotel is 10 kilometers from Balestrand. The view of the fjord from every room is amazing. Dinner was good, very expensive by Australian or US standards but

My tour group (12 rooms) had 3 nights in this lovely, somewhat rustic, hotel. Being ski club members and hikers, absolutely loved the rural setting, and we found hiking opportunities almost outside the door. The staff was friendly and conscientious, and the meals -- 3

We received a confirmation mail for the reservation but the day of arrival, no reservation! They finally confirmed their mistake but the hotel were fully booked! No room and we finished in a small room in a 2 star hotel... really disappointed. Not really professional...

Dear PF L! We are deeply sorry for this situation! There was a technical failure with lack of creditcard information. On arrival we tried really hard to find a room for you near by, contacted several hotels, but since it is still the main season it was difficult. We do really care about guests, and finally and at least we found a room for you on the way to your next destination. We do apoligize for this situation!

If I don’t plan to hire a car and I’m only using public transportation, can I get to this hotel?
You would need to take a taxi from Balestrand. It is much too far to walk.

There are two different ferry docks; the one for ferries from Hella or Vangsnes IS very close to the Dragsvik Fjord Hotel. HOWEVER, if you are arriving via the Norled Ferry into Balestrand, the ferry dock is ~6 miles to the hotel. There is bus service there, but when we were there in August, there was no bus schedule posted in Balestrand. The hotel is very nice, the staff is incredibly helpful, but if you are planning on walking from the Balestrand Ferry dock to the hotel, it is about 6 miles. You can call the hotel and for a fee, they will come and pick you up.

how does one go to hotel from the boat station. you mentioned bus picks up
Just to add. Most would be on a rented or self owned car or tour bus during this stage of the fjord exploration. If you intend to trek. You can literally walk to the hotel from the ferry station

"Rooms upstairs on the north side are quieter."
"I would confirm with your reservation that you'll get a renovated cottage."
"Go for the rooms on the back side if possible regarding to avoid noise"
"Ask for room on the top floor in the attic with balcony"
"Every room has a view of the fjord. Very comfortable!"
