This wonderful lemon-yellow hotel is the oldest family-run hotel in Norway. Dating from 1640, it's a historical treasure, packed with period detailing, lovely antiques, old-fashioned beds and clawfoot baths. There are three buildings: two historic, plus a deeply incongruous 1960s motel-style extension. The oldest part is the Tingstova wing, with four rooms furnished with hand-painted furniture.

Outside there's a lovely lawn and a garden of lilac, roses, apple and cherry trees. A formal four-course dinner is served nightly in the dining room and is available on a half-board basis.

Quick description via booking.com

Dating back to 1640, this 9th generation family-run hotel is Norway’s oldest. The hotel is surrounded by a romantic garden in the idyllic village of Svolvorn. It offers elegant rooms and beautiful views of Lustrafjord and its mountains. Walaker Hotel’s unique rooms create an old-world charm with their antique furniture, high ceilings and decorative curtains. The stylish bathrooms include a bathtub or shower, toilets and free bath products. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. A breakfast buffet is served daily and includes a mix of local products like homemade cheese, fruit juices, jams and other treats. In the evening, a 4-course menu of Norwegian dishes is served at Walaker’s Restaurant, which overlooks the fjord. In summer, afternoon coffee can be enjoyed in the garden. Guests wishing to explore the Sognefjord region can borrow bicycles at Hotel Walaker or go hiking on the Jostedalsbreen Glacier. The 12th-century Urnes Stave Church is a 30-minute ferry ride away. Other popular activities include kayaking, fishing and boat cruises on the Nærøyfjord.
