Rooms were impeccable and the location perfectly situated next to the harbor. The staff were friendly and the front patio ideal for a wine or beer at sunset. The view of the harbor was utterly destroyed by the town's acceptance of large cruise ships. Look, I get it, the town needs the revenue that cruisers bring with them to buy... More

We stayed for 1 night only. The hotel was clean, check in and out was quick and easy. The hotel is located right infront of all the action. Entry and exit is very easy. The room is very spacious and has a balcony with very nice views. Breakfast had alot of options. Overall, our experience was very good.

Very conveniently located for the Flam railway and ferry tours. The dinner buffet was great quality, though the breakfast buffet was fine, but nothing special. The room was ok though the shower over the bath was pretty basic and the water pressure was low, so don't expect a power shower. The walk up the path behind the hotel gives you... More

I stayed at this property three nights. I changed rooms after the first night because I'd only planned on two nights, and then added a third. The location cannot be beat. It is right in Flam and is a lovely hotel and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is steps from the railway and the dock, but then again,... More

This is a lovely hotel and it is beautifully located. We really enjoyed our stay and it was as we expected comfortable, smart and professionally run. Our room was quite small which was not a problem given we were only staying for one night but had we been staying for a number of days it would have been too small.... More

This hotel is very classical in style and to look at the fjord is magestical from your window. But for an upgrade to run out of hot water and not have a TV is ridiculous. All standard rooms have TVs. The claw footed bath looks great but poor design makes it easy to flood the bathroom. Going to reception in... More

We were a family of four staying one evening at the Fretheim Hotel. We booked a junior suite which was not available upon arrival from Oslo. It was pouring rain and we had to wait in Myrdal in the rain as there was not enough room in the building, so when we arrived in Flam we were wet to the... More

This property reminds me a grand old seaside hotel. We stayed in a junior suite and had lots of room with a great view. There are nice sitting areas both inside and out for a coffee or a drink. Beware the large tour groups at breakfast.

From the outside the hotel looks nice though the historic section has been spoiled by a modern glass entrance. The hotel tries to market itself as upper-tier: do not be fooled. As you enter there is no one to help to greet you or help with luggage. The first thing that strikes you is that the lobby/seating area is more... More
