All the staff encountered at this hotel/restaurant were completely delightful and couldn’t have been more helpful. We stayed for lunch, which was tasty but sadly quite cold when it arrived. The dining room had the standard Skandinavien feel, which is was a bit dark and...More

Has a buffet with a variety of local foods on it (including whale). It looked very nice but we ordered off the menu - mostly fish, which was flavorful and well cooked. Given the other local options this is the best restaurant near the port.

Delicious evening buffet plus wonderful a la carte menu as well. Breakfast buffet was also great. Service as good as the food. Somewhat pricey but not for Norway.

When we took the Flam Railway from Mrydal to Flam we decided we would like a coffee when we reached our destination. Although there were a number of cafes, snack bars etc. in the area we wanted something a little more comfortable and less crowded....More

I was visiting Flam and walked through the ground level lobby and saw a very old sled and a traditional ladies costume displayed well for all the view. The roses in front had a wonderful scent!

Had the dinner buffet here as part of our small group tour. The variety of food available was quite large. I found all of the dishes to be good although I didn't find anything that I would dream about forever. Like many buffets, the food...More
