Hotel Union Øye

Nowhere does old-world glamor in Norway quite like Hotel Union Øye. Boasting a history that reaches back to 1891 and a guestbook that names the likes of Kaiser Wilhelm, Arthur Conan Doyle and Edvard Greig, it’s certainly never short on a tale. Told within an enchanting setting of fjords and cascading waterfalls, a stay here is akin to a step back in time. Cozy up in one of the 27 charming rooms and embrace this most quintessentially Nordic experience.


Set back from the tranquil waters of the Norangsfjord, in the quaint village of Øye, Hotel Union Øye has no shortage of Norwegian charm. Kick start your stay amongst the fjords by arriving by boat from Alesund, a leisurely hour and a half sail away. Or there’s always the scenic coastal road or a bird’s eye helicopter view if you’d prefer.

Your Room

Each of the 27 rooms at Hotel Union Øye has a personality as unique as the famous faces that once stayed in them. Named after past occupants, they are a homage to old school grandeur with canopied beds, brocade wallpaper and antique chandeliers. Opening onto views of the surrounding hillsides, a peaceful night’s sleep here is guaranteed.

Why we like it

Elegant and refined, yet thoroughly Norwegian, days at Hotel Union Øye are all about the adventure of the surrounding landscapes. If you fancy a challenge, the hike up to the Slogen summit certainly does the trick. Or, if you’d rather explore at a more leisurely pace, boat trips along the Geirangerfjord and Hjordunfjord are sure to unveil the mesmerising beauty of the region.
