This was a return visit after an absence of 35 years. The hotel has grown, as has Flåm itself, but it is still the perfect location for railway, ferries, and views of the fjord and mountains. My room was pleasant, comfortable, and clean. The combined bath and shower felt rather unsafe, with high sides, no grab rails, and no anti-slip mat. Only soap was provided. Free WiFi worked well. The dining room served only buffet meals, the cold items were very good but of the hot dishes I enjoyed only the potato gratin. Service was polite but inevitably rather impersonal. Do not miss the amazing Flåm railway and the ferry to Gudvangen or Bergen.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Fretheim Hotel boasts mountain and fjord views and is somewhere you can look, taste, listen and absorb magnificent nature. The hotel is immediately adjacent to the Nærøyfjord UNESCO World Heritage site. This fjord has been chosen as one of the world’s most beautiful destinations several times running! The hotel was built in Swiss chalet style at the end of the 19th century, and over the years has grown and developed in pace with the increase in tourists and travellers using the Bergensbana railway and, later, the famous Flåmsbana railway. The oldest part of the hotel has been carefully restored to reveal beautiful details, with open fires and antique furniture in the lounges, library, conference room and, not least, in all the historical guest rooms. Take yourself on a journey of discovery and enjoy the atmosphere of glory days past. ... more less
