What an amazing place. Warm and inviting, waffles, coffee and soup; beautiful old leather armchairs and snug rooms. We spent a happy couple of hours waiting for the Flam train on our way from Bergen to Oslo. Definitely recommend this as an add on to the trip if you have time.

Stopped here on Flåm railway for a 2 hour break. Beautiful cosy hotel with excellent food. Amazing scenery, especially in the snow. Well worth a stop here if time allows, staff are very friendly and used to people stopping for food and a drink.

This hotel is at Vatnahalsen stn, one stop before Myrdal when you take the train from Flam to Myrdal. The hotel is located right back of the station in less than 1 min walking distance. I think you can book from its website.

I do confirm there is no workout room and this is not at all the style of this mountain hotel.

You will need to contact the hotel directly or use one of the internet booking agencies. Sorry but Tripadvisor does not allow me to name one or a website.
