The great and the good flocked to Norway’s Hotel Union Øye when it opened in 1891 – from Kaiser Wilhelm to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Its chalet-style frontage and 27 plush rooms have since been restored, each named and decorated in distinctive character after one of its former patrons. Four-poster beds, gilded fixtures, sweeping drapes and countless antiques whisk guests a century back in time, right down to the silver and glassware laid for taking tea on the lawn. In the evening, the restaurant highlights the finest local seasonal fare.
In the verdant western fjord region, not far from Ålesund, the hotel is also blessed with beguiling hills and waters that prove irresistible to explore: an enduring invitation for travellers in the 21st-century, and beyond.
