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...

That view outside our window was worth it! Flam is a small town and we thought we had made a mistake staying overnight before continuing our Norway in a Nutshell tour. But it was a welcome break and the view of the magical fjord was well worth it! The hotel was was wonderful. Historic and clean! Staff was very nice.... More

Stayed for only one night as part of Norway in a Nutshell tour. The hotel is nestled in between high mountains on the edge of Aurlandsfjord. My wife and I visited in September 2014 during clement weather. No doubt it is enchanting during spring, summer and autumn but I wonder what it would be like in winter. Lovely old hotel... More

We only stayed one night here which was certainly the wrong decision. Flam has so much tranquility and nature surrounding it, we should have stayed 3 nights to give us a chance to do some hiking and explore the (seemingly) fantastic hinterland. The hotel is in good nick, the room was adequate (we hate small rooms), bedding of good quality... More

Spent 2 nights at this hotel whilst travelling on the Norway in a Nutshell. We were pleasantly surprised by receiving a hotel upgrade and we had a lovely view of the fjord. The room was clean and everything in good working order, with the bathroom a generous size. The staff were friendly and the Breakfast and Dinner Buffet provided great... More

Since Fretheim is very close to the fjord and railway station it is extremely touristy and always bustling with travellers. The hotel is a historical hotel so it retains its charm. Breakfast was plenty with a large spread. The rooms were just sufficient but clean. Not too big, not too small. We were there just for a night and glad... More

Only 3 minutes walking distance from the railway station with nice decoration. Food is good with reasonable price. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner in the hotel after comparing other restaurants nearby. There are satires inside the hotel to reach each floor. 2nd floors is restaurant, 3rd is the bar. 4th and 5th are for view only but I think... More
