About the rooms

All rooms are contemporary decorated in the house style. A conscious decision was made not to provide a TV or minibar so that everyone can unwind and enjoy the hotel's beautiful garden and common areas.

Our favourite room

Rooms 20 and 23 are the largest and best rooms with the most amazing views of the rose garden and the fjord.

Enjoy a refreshing swim

Although there is no swimming pool, the Fjords invite you for a refreshing swim.

Work out and wind down

Explore this beautiful region from the water by kayaking or by boat, or put on your hiking boots and climb the Mölden mountain peak, where you will be rewarded with fantastic panoramic views. The path to the summit is well marked and is an excellent choice for hikers. By ferry, you will sail through the fjords and reach the breathtaking Feigumfossen waterfall. On arrival at the hotel, you will be given a small brochure with an overview of all possible excursions. For example, a short boat trip to Ornes, where you can stroll to the oldest stave church in the world.


There is no pool or children's entertainment provided, but any child who enjoys spending time in nature will also consider this hotel a paradise on earth. This hotel is less suitable for babies or small kids. During the summer months, children under the age of 12 are not allowed.
