Hotel Union Oye review by Nicole Allmann
Opened in 1891, the historic Hotel Oye has been a magnet for Europe's elite aristocracy for as long as anyone can remember. The wanderlust of Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands cemented Hotel Oye's appeal as an exclusive retreat amidst an area of outstanding natural beauty in 1891, prompting a host of monarchs to follow suit and make Alesund their seaside retreat of choice for the next 80 years.

Opened in 1891, the historic Hotel Oye has been a magnet for Europe's elite aristocracy for as long as anyone can remember. The wanderlust of Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands cemented Hotel Oye's appeal as an exclusive retreat amidst an area of outstanding natural beauty in 1891, prompting a host of monarchs to follow suit and make Alesund their seaside retreat of choice for the next 80 years. It may no longer be a playground for blue-blooded royals, yet Hotel Oye still attracts wealthy clientele with the promise of first-class service, excellent sport fishing, and unprecedented tranquility overlooking one of the most beautiful UNESCO World Heritage sites.
 

Hjørund Fjord sets the backdrop for this picturesque Scandinavian retreat in the village of Orsta, which at four storeys high, offers spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding Alpine landscapes. Hotel Oye's Rooms reflect the hotel's regal past, furnished with sumptuous antiques, four-poster beds and rich, sumptuous fabrics.

 

You won't find standard in-room amenities such as a television or complimentary Wi-Fi, because a stay at Hotel Oye is all about embracing the escapism afforded by its wondrous natural surroundings. Enjoy a long soak in your own roll-top bath with a glass of wine after your hiking tour to Slogen, followed by a three-course meal in the decadent Banqueting Hall. Then, after dark, dare to brave the harsh mountain elements for a spot of werewolf-hunting courtesy of a local guide!
