    Very good

    The hotel was very clean and it had internet.

    The room was not what we had booked (even after e-mailing/ talking on the phone and checking in at the front desk) We still had a have a roll away bed put into our already small room. There was no information in our room at all - to call desk/about are/ room serve/how to call another room etc. There was not an iron or ironing board in the room. There were no fans in the room. The food seemed a little overpriced.There was not a Fjord view, as stated on Booked.net

    The location is convenient with free parking. The room was clean and confortable. Wifi in the room. The view on the fjord was nice from the little room balcony.

    The extra bed was not in the room when we arrived but was quickly installed. The information for the dinner was not given to us when we entered the dinning room We ended up with the buffet without knowing the price. It turned out to be very expensive for very average food and choice (I would recommend 'a la carte' instead). The breakfast was average. The hotel is fairly quite inside but we had to sleep with the windows open (very warm in the room) and the noise of the traffic on the main road was disturbing.

    comfortable bed and room in "older" hotel, balcony with great view, good breakfast with plenty of variety.

    As perfect as the glorious fjords. The location is superb for country strolls and hikes.

    Close to the hotel is a very famous medieval church, however, "someone" had departed with the key and was not available anywhere - including the tourist information. I suggest that the hotel takes this business in hand and enables tourists to visit this site.

    In Kinsarvik there are no other restaurants so the hotel is your only choice if you want to have some dinner. Small menu, very high priced for average quality. Breakfast ok, but they wanted to charge us 50 NKR for 3 sandwiches we wanted to take.

    Perfect

    My partner and I found all of the staff to be very friendly and helpful at all times.The rooms were very comfortable and clean with good views of the fantastic scenery. The hotel being in Kinsarvik is an excellent base to travel to the surrounding sights during the day and the ferry just across the road allows easy access to the towns on the opposite side of Hardanger Fjord. The hotel is also very family friendly with good facilities for children and a nearby water-park. The walk up the Husadalen Valley behind Kinsarvik to the many waterfalls was amazing! We where awestruck at the size and power of the falls and the scale of the mountains is hard to describe. The Kinsarvik Fjord Hotel will be recommended to my friends and also my parents who will be in Norway next year. It was also special for me as my family name (Harding) originated in the region. Thank you.

    The only thoughts we had were that the coffee shop next door was a bit to modern for the area and a more traditional decor would be more inviting.

    Great

    Only a handful of guests, due to the season - actually, this time of year is kind of no season at all. The friendly staff tried to give them a good time and spoke excellent English. Had a good dinner (soup, roast meat, potatoes), which was nice to provide from the kitchen seen the limited number of guests. Breakfast buffet huge and sufficient for at least a dozen more guests. Different types of jam, cheese, meat, fish, plus different fruit juices, fresh fruit .... Had a good sleep in a lake- side room (414). Bedroom plain and simple, equipped as described. Storage for luggage and clothing limited. Balcony was a nice touch – alone, if guests in neighbouring rooms smoke on their balconies, the non- smoking policy does not really have an effect. But this is up to the guests, the hotel cannot do much about it. Bathtub with shower with ok- ish water pressure. Floor heating is a nice touch. Instable WiFi. Access to power sockets ok-ish. Bar looks nice, but was (as expected) closed for the season. Good location to explore the area, easy to access by car. To sum it up: Got everything I needed, stay was quite pleasant.

    Nothing that had any influence on my stay, just some thoughts: The restaurant is one huge no-frills room, with almost no decoration and very plain tables and chairs. It has fjord-view – but for the lone person it is not really a relaxing place. Maybe add some dividers to create somewhat intimacy. The clamp of the shower head holds on while the shower head is inserted, as soon as removed, it crashes down on the little shelf with the soap and shampoo (and my glasses). Maybe exchange them for a different type, which stays put. Maybe consider to extend the non-smoking policy to the balconies, but most of the smokers I know would not understand and just keep on

    Nice

    We had a comfortable room with a lovely view and a balcony. It was quiet in the hotel even though it was fairly full, so no problem sleeping at night. The outside bar terrace was a great place to relax in the sun or the shade after a long day's travelling. The owner was friendly and available. I'd probably stay there again as it's in a good position for where we wanted to be. It was on the whole an enjoyable stay.

    The first night we arrived the dining room was busy, I'd asked on arrival if it was necessary to book a table and was told that it wasn't necessary. I noticed that tables had been reserved so I wish I'd reserved a table anyway. The restaurant staff didn't seem to be very organised. Plates kept being sent out to the wrong tables. There was only one young girl who seemed to know what was going on. We ordered a main meal and had to wait ages. We were never asked if we wanted dessert or coffee so just got the bill and left. I wasn't impressed by the service at all. The service on the second night was better and the owner was in evidence for the first part of the evening and was friendly and welcoming.
