We stayed here for a night while we doing Norway in a nutshell tour and had a great stay. The staff were nice and courteous to answer our queries and they have the facility to keep luggage after checkout which helped us since we had some time before our return journey. Food was great, they have an amazing spread of... More

I was in Flam for one night while doing the Sognefjord in a Nutshell tour. This is a historic hotel. The staff was wonderful to me, even corrected my bill at checkout. The restuarant food was excellent, I ordered off the menu and had beef of sirloin. Perfect! The only drawback to this hotel is I didn't have the best... More

My husband and I stayed here for a night at the beginning of November. As it was the off-season, Flam was exceptionally quiet and the hotel almost empty - we loved it. It felt like we almost had the entire village to ourselves. I had spoken to the hotel in advance and they prepared us a delicious, 3-course vegetarian dinner... More

Spent one night here while attending a meeting. Got sick and called for roomservice as I did not feel up to eating in the restaurant. They told me roomservice was not available and that they had no food service to the rooms at all.

What a beautiful place. I wish we could have stayed for a week. Very friendly staff, not only at the hotel but also at the Tourist Information. Maira was so helpful. Our room had a balcony overlooking the fjords. Picturesque! The breakfast was fantastic. I cant fault this hotel. Please go!!

When you arrive, both the outside and lobby are impressive. The outside of the old building fits perfectly with the surrounding fjord. The huge glassed lobby gives a wow factor on entry. The rooms we were given though we're not the best. Despite the hotel being almost empty, we were given a room with a view of god carp ark.... More

I had signed up for the one-way Oslo to Bergen Norway in a Nutshell trip. As it takes almost 12 hours, I decided to break my journey in Flam for one night. Tripadvisor helped me pick Fretheim Hotel and I did not regret it for one second. The online booking process was smooth. Though the amount was pre-authorised on my... More
