Deeply rooted in Norwegian history and traditions, the Hotel Ullensvang has been family run by five generations since 1846. Based in the Hardanger mountain range and fjord, this hotel is the perfect base to explore the unique outdoors and enjoy an intimate experience.
Showcasing the best of Norway's culinary offerings, the Hardanger Buffet Restaurant uses a mix of local ingredients and flavours to create a fine gastronomic experience, serving an array of hot and cold dishes that prove the chef's passion for cooking. A la carte restaurant Zazoni offers both traditional Norwegian and international cuisine overlooking the fjord and Folgefonna Glacier, or visit the bar for a menu of light fare and snacks.
Over the years, the hotel has expanded and been restored to its current level of luxury, with over 200 guestrooms including a range of junior, deluxe and family suites. Junior suites feature separate bedrooms and bathroom areas, whilst the family suite accommodates more people with two bedrooms and a den. All guestrooms include televisions, internet access, radios and standard hotel amenities and most rooms command private balconies with mountain, fjord or orchard views, whilst rooms on the north end of the property command Hardangerfjord views.
Explore the idyllic backdrop of Hardanger for yourself, perhaps rent paddle boats and tour the fjord, hike through the national park, cider taste on the Hardanger Fruit Trail or take a visit to nearby Lofthus village for cultural and heritage sites including the Hardanger Folk Museum. When you aren't exploring the natural wonders of Norway, perhaps unwind in the hotel swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, or for the active; take a trip to the activity and fitness centre for games, tennis and squash.
