Fretheim is ranked lower than Flamsbrygga in Tripadvisor so It was with small hesitation that we booked it. Yet, after visiting Flam and checking both we are very glad we did. We had concerns also about the room as the only room available was a standard room but again our room was beautiful, spacious and it had a remarkable view.... More

Stayed here for an overnight stay. The hotel is beautiful, the food was great. I guess it was the most delicious salmon I have ever tasted. Our dinner was also the best. Flam is so relaxing with snow capped mountains as our background. The fjord ride was also very nice. Overall this is one of the most beautiful places I've... More

We stayed 6 nights in June and had wall-to-wall sunshine. Our room was spacious (American Wing) and clean, the hotel is modern in facilities and traditional in appearance and service. We had a balcony, perfect for keeping drinks cool and drying our daily laundry. There are very few outside restaurants, so eating in is really essential. Norwegian food prices are... More

We stayed 1 night at the Fretheim Hotel as a stopover during our Sognefjord in a Nutshell tour. It was nice to break up the tour, and the Fretheim Hotel did not disappoint. We did not eat at the hotel for dinner, but did enjoy the breakfast that they offered. The front desk was very helpful in providing a map... More

Fantastic gem of a hotel, nicely tucked in by mountains and fjords in a dramatic landscape you can't find anywhere else...! The service is exceptional, the food is also world class presented by waiters that seems to love what they are doing...

I stayed here for one night while traveling solo around Norway in late September. The hotel and room were clean and very nice. The service was very good as well and even let me wash my clothes that got muddy from hiking earlier in the day. The breakfast and dinner buffets were delicious. The location was fantastic for what I... More

Loving our short stay at Fretheim Hotel, Flam. Cosy, great room, clean, and friendly staff . Just a pity that floods have destroyed the iconic Flambsana train journey, but one can still get here by car or bus. Picture postcard views from every window. A "must see" place.

We booked a suite there as we have two kids with us, and it was fairly spacious. The cot, and the pull out bed worked very well! Toilets are a little old, but ok. Rooms well heated and cozy with a lovely view! Food was good in dinner buffet and even the food we ordered for lunch was good. They... More

Loved everything about the hotel. It's been around since the 1870s but it's very well-maintained while still retaining its character. We came during the off-season (early November) and the hotel was nice and quiet. We stayed on the first floor and our balcony had a great view of the fjords. The breakfast buffet was also superb. Highly recommend this hotel!... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a tour of Norway. The village of Flam is small and the hotel is handy for everything, the railway, trips along the fjord etc. Our room was on the ground floor, looking down the fjord, and was very comfortable, all our group found the door locking mechanism to the...
