    Good

    Well positioned at the end of the fjord, it is a short walk to the fabulous Flambana, an unparalleled train journey into the mountains. The rooms are sparse. At 6.00 pm the 4th floor bar actually had no bar, the 3rd floor bar had no barman and the lobby bar was full of bus tourists.

    Because it caters for bus tours, you have to time dinner well or wait until they are all attended to. It was always difficult to find help in the reception area and the room telephone information was out of date. As a result, I had to physically go to reception to book for dinner. The hotel is understaffed and this causes delays in dinner, breakfast, etc.

    Wonderful restaurant service and buffet is excellent. Convenient to anywhere and any activities.

    Receiption quality is behind the overall service standard level. They should be more warm and friendly with the good recommendation to guest.

    Quiet location for our parents who travelled with us.

    We paid for 3 rooms and 1 of the rooms had not tea and coffee facility or tv. There were no safe in area of the rooms. We surprised that the most expensive room "fjord view" that we bought for parents in law was not renovated or stylish as the other rooms. It could have been any standard room anywhere. Dirty cups were not removed from our room, no milk supplied when we received a kettle and our phone did not work. Felt it was very stingy.

    It was centrally located

    The room I booked was called mountain view, unfortunately you have to try and look past the cruise ships. Not the fretheim' s fault as so many cruise ships come in to Flam.

    It was very central. It has a great restaurant-cafe with a quiet terrace with a view. The main lobby is well designed. There is free access to laundry machines, including free soap. Unfortunately there are no instructions in English and I ruined some of my white t-shirts for choosing the wrong option. Breakfast is generous and has great choice.

    The room I had, on the top floor, had a great triangular mansard window with a view. Unfortunately, the rest of the room was very bland (unlike the lobby). It seemed more like a dorm room in a youth hostel. Plus the walls are so thin I could hare the neighbor snoring. The heating of the bathroom floor was set at maximum and could not be controlled.

    Friendly staff, beautiful room with amazing view. The grill/cafe provided a more wallet friendly alternative to the hotel's main gourmet restaurant.

    No WiFi reception in our room (3rd floor, Flam room)

    The train trip down to the hotel was amazing and the hotel was every bit as beautiful. I merely had to push my suitcase a few feet to the front door. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I only stayed one night but the location was excellent for visiting the fjord.

    I wish the food situation had been explained better at check-in. I would have liked to have known I would need a reservation for the restaurant and that my other option stopped serving food at 8:00 pm. As I was too tired to wander about and no one from the hotel suggested another option I actually went to bed without supper. Also, there is a bar on the third floor which is mostly unstaffed. Wanting something more than beer or wine I went to the first floor to inquire about getting a drink and was told to ask the restaurant staff to send someone up to the third floor. At the restaurant on the second fllor I was told that someone had gone up. Back at the third floor there was no one there. Back down to the first floor where one of the staff did his best to make me my drink -- while he certainly handled the problem well -- I did not apprecaite running up and down for no reason. Again, I believe there is a pub right down the road but no one told me that.

    Very good

    The hotel is well appointed and in a fantastic location with wonderful views of the fjord and mountains. The dinner was very nice, especially the al a carte menu, even if is was a tad expensive. The hotel staff were generally helpful, especially at reception. The room was adequate in size and most have good views. Breakfast had good options and was tasty.

    The dinner staff could have been more helpful in describing options and asking how the meal was. Some made an effort with other customers but I never got asked and my steak, although tasty, was certainly overcooked!
