Introduction

Situated on a small branch of the Hjorundfjord encircled by the Sunnmore Alps, this 27-room hotel is still as magnificent as it was when it originally opened its doors in 1891. Since then it has been privy to a number of famous visitors, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of the master detective, Sherlock Holmes. Situated in an elegant manor house and only a 2-hour drive from Alesund, the hotel features lavish furnishings tucked in some of Norway's magnificent mountain scenery.

Close enough to the famous fishing port, should you wish to explore it, but also offering canoes and bicycles for rental on site, both the area's culture and wilderness are at your fingertips while staying at the Hotel Union Oye. The hotel offers a gourmet dining experience, serving seasonal menus which are based around the fresh local produce available. Wines are selected specifically to accompany these meals and the hotel's sun lounge is an excellent place to watch the sunset after enjoying a fine meal. The personal attention to detail that this hotel has demonstrated over many years has ensured that it is one of the most loved in Norway.
