Stayed in the old American wing of the hotel. Room was beautiful but could improve by adding more shelves in the bathroom for a place to put our toiletries. Dinner buffet was absolutely delicious! Hotel is very clean. Love the decor. Staff are very welcoming.

Great hotel, warm and welcome - reception staff very helpful - we had a very spacious family suite with views out over Flam and towards the Fjord. Comfy beds- even the sofa bed was really supportive. Lovely 2 night stay.

About
Description
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 More 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. Less
