We have considered a trip with HF holidays and our hotel would be the Brakanes but we are having second thoughts about booking because apparently even though we are willing to pay for an upgrade and a view on a first come, first serve basis, the hotel will not guarantee the rooms. !!!!!! NOT HAPPY

Was here for a weekend with my family with 12 members, 4 rooms. The staff was friendly and smiling, but mostly foreign, except in the lobby. They war helpful and understanding.

A fabulous hotel serving a great selection of food for breakfast and evening meal. Most rooms have a balcony overlooking the fjord - what a view!! Reasonable sized swimming pool and well kept gardens. However, rooms are looking a little tired and need an upgrade including the ensuite. Well worth a short stay if only to experience the view from... More

Directly on Hardangerfjord, the hotel offers dazzling views. My room was a single with a fjord view, and a large balcony with two (?) chairs. The double bed was two twins pushed together, which is standard practice. It was comfortable. The room was small, but fine, with good lighting and enough outlets for charging. Storage was minimal. There was a... More

I travelled with HF Holidays on their discovery holiday. The brakanes hotel was fantastic, peaceful and clean. My room had a panoramic view which was such a treat and so relaxing. The breakfasts and dinners were delicious, healthy with a lot of choice. The staff were polite, friendly and very helpful with any problems and very prompt to fix problems.... More

Wonderful location with stunning views of the fjord. Many one night stop-overs of large groups. The food was boring and fairly bland and the virtually the same each night. The room had no ventilation and very limited storage space, so I had to live out of a suitcase for a week.

The HF walking holiday booked this hotel for me when going on a walking holiday with a group. I was very disappointed when I entered the room. It was the standard of a 2* hotel!

Great view on the fjord, close to a Nice little city (Ulvik) but with a Limited attractiveness. Old hôtel however with lots of tourists ans tour operators. Personnel is Nice. Good for a night on the way to another place in the fjords of Norway.
