We stayed at the Fretheim last week for two nights as apart of a Great Rail Journeys group with friends. Our room was a modern room and very pleasant and comfortable with seating immediately outside which was very enjoyable. The wardrobe was small but no problem for two nights. The best thing about the hotel was the staff who were... More

We stayed in the old storehouse for a night, as there were four of us, and it was great! Really cute little barn building just around the corner from the hotel. We would have loved to use the natural hot tub, but it was so expensive so we decided against it. Generally though, the restaurant food was good, and the... More

We stayed two nights here after a long drive from Oslo following a 7 night cruise. The town is quaint, small but very full of tourists. The hotel is right in the middle of the action and has great views when not blocked by huge cruise ships which seem to appear every morning and leave every afternoon. At night it... More

Stopped of on a visit to Flam railway and museum. The hotel is very central with open and airy lobby, reception,bar/restaurant area. Had a drink which was by Norwegian standards not overpriced especially as free WI FI code was provided on request.

After exciting trip down the Flam railway we spent a night in the hotel. We had a room with a splendid view on a fjord. Hotel restaurant is quite expensive but very romantic and with a great range of food and wine. Even a choice of beers is very wide. Enjoy your stay.

I wouldn't bother staying here if you can avoid it. It just was so mediocre (for the money!) and quite poor in its customer service. It just felt like a very complacent hotel set up that relies on the large tour groups and doesn't feel it has to bother with guest and customer care. We arrived at around 1.30pm to... More

The good: 1) Fantastic location near the Flam railway station and wharf (easy walk from both, even with luggage) 2) Beautiful fjord views 3) The public lounge / bar was beautifully furnished and they played a great playlist of mainly 90's Britpop (well not to everyone's taste I guess, but I liked it) 4) The staff were a pleasant and...

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed this hotel. Room had been recently renovated and they did a nice job on the upgrade. Bathroom had shower only. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Mostly non-Norwegian staff (Slovak, Estonian, Latvian...) and at times it was a little difficult to communicate. Breakfast and dinner buffets were very good - house smoked salmon was... More

A clean, friendly, attractive, service-oriented hotel located adjacent to the train station and dock, so getting your luggage to and from the hotel is not an issue. They have no problem with checking your luggage while waiting for your room, or after you have checked out of your room. An extensive breakfast buffet is included. We arrived hours early, but...

The hotel is architecturally a bit of an eclectic mix due to various extensions built and renovations carried out over the years but it's nicely situated close to the rail station and the wharf. 'Fjord views' from the rooms are a bit 'hit and miss' ..... there are a number of trees which, when in leaf, disrupt the view. The... More
