I was very impressed with the hotel. We got upgraded to a room with a balcony overlooking the harbor and town. Great view. Room was very nice and bed comfortable. Some very nice areas to sit and just chill out. Price was a bit high...but for a tourist town like it is...it seemed reasonable....and it included breakfast, which will be... More

The Fretheim Hotel was not only beautiful, it is located in one of the world’s most stunning places! We stayed in one of their gorgeous historic rooms, which was clean, comfortable and warm. Not only were the accommodations excellent, the service could not have been more personal and amazing! Having done all our research from afar, we arrived with a... More

A wonderful place to stay in Flam with beautiful views and central to everything. The staff were polite and helpful and the food from the restaurant was superb. Quiet and relaxing, a great place to return to after a walk to the Brekkefossen. Would stay here again.

Barely a few minutes from the harbour and railway station, you are ideally situated. Breakfast buffet had a wide choice with excellent quality of cold cuts, cheese, salmon, bread, sausages, meatballs etc. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Fascinating decor in the main lobby with antique trunks used as tables etc.

Stayed there for a night with a friend. Location is perfect and views are beautiful. Bed quality is below average, room is quite old, heating is unmanageable. Dinner was only menu and no alacarte. Breakfast was below average. Would recommend staying for one night.

Recommended by a friend to stay during our tour. Great location, friendly staff, clean rooms and nicely decorated. Included a breakfast buffet each morning and the views from our room of the Fjord were amazing. We rented bikes during our stay and rode to Aurland and up toward Myrdal. Highly recommend you stay at this historic hotel when in Flam.

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
