Nordfjord Municipality is in a financial crunch.

Historic hotel Union Øye is located in Ørsta municipality in Sunnmøre.

Emperors, kings and municipal leaders
The hotel from 1891 has previously housed great judges such as emperor William 2 of Germany, Queen Vilhelmina of the Netherlands, the kings Oscar 2 and Haakon 7 and Queen Maud, the authors Karen Blixen and Arthur Conan Doyle , and adventurers Roald Amundsen and Fridtjof Nansen

The price tag for the eight people came to NOK 39,900.
