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

When autumn is in the air, the cruise ships have departed and daylight lasts until 9 pm, Flam Norway is quite peaceful. Guests at the hotel can enjoy cozy rooms furnished with antiques or enjoy a glass of locally created hard cider by the fire. For those on the route from Oslo to Bergen, it was a great way to... More

We just returned from a one night stay at Fretheim this weekend – after cycling «Rallarvegen» from Finse. After 5,5 miles on the road we were very much looking forward to our stay at this hotel, as we have visited several of the places in the «Historical hotels of Norway»chain before. I am very sad to say we were very... More

We arrived Flam via the Flam Heritage Railway. The Train ride from Myrdal to Flam was amazing with the live event at the waterfall. It really takes your breath away to be greeted with the overflowing waterfall , loud music and a mysterious lady dancing on the hill top! When we reached Flam and walked out of the station, we...

We paid £385 for 2 nights bed & breakfast in a twin bed room with balcony overlooking fjord. Actually most of the time the balcony overlooks tourist shopping area & docked cruise ship ! Beds we're clean & comfortable & the room was quiet but there the praise stops. Our bathroom door was warped and wouldn't close,despite a notice saying... More

The hotel is quite historic. We enjoyed taking the informational tour of the hotel. Learned how it has changed over the years, and about the "ghost". The front of the hotel faces the fjord. We had a spectacular view from our hotel balcony. There are also great views from the upstairs bar area and the lobby/breakfast area. Really enjoyed sitting... More

We reserved and obtained a room with a Fjord view. Unfortunately, it was a corner room, such that there was a room on wing perpendicular to our floor with a window of a quest room six feet away from our balcony window. The net result is we has absolutely no privacy unless we kept out blinds shut. That was problematic... More

There really aren't any 'luxury' hotels in Flam to choose from. Fretheim isn't a super luxurious place but it does the job ok. We stayed in a room with a small balcony facing the main town. The room overlooked the hotel's front lawn and rose garden. Rooms were clean. Toilet has under-floor heating. Breakfast is on the second floor and... More

The hotel is amazing for so many reasons. The hotel is very nice, and the restaurant is very charming. The views are beautiful. The hotel itself has a very interesting history. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We visited in spring, so the hotel was very quiet, which added to the quaintness of the area. We would absolutely go... More
