Introduction

A flagship hotel now in its fifth generation of ownership by the Utne family, Hotel Ullensvang prides itself on bringing tradition and quality to each of its 172 rooms. Located on the Sorfjord arm of the mighty Hardangerfjord, over the years, many important guests have passed through the hotel doors, including the acclaimed composer Edvard Grieg whose cabin here can still be visited.

A successful blend of old and new, the rooms all have private facilities, TV, internet access, minibar, hairdryer and a trouser-press. Although there is a selection of room-type available, all offer either a mountain or fjord view, making sure you never forget just how beautiful an area you are travelling through. See below for room options.

The hotel offers a number of facilities to help you enjoy the natural area as well, including an indoor tennis court and boats which are available to be used on the water. The hotel's restaurant boasts spectacular views and is set out on several levels so that each table has a view of the fjord stretching off into the evening. There is a wine cellar and stylish lobby bar that serves light meals and coffee to help get you through the day.
