We ate breakfast at this hotel before our kayaking tour of the fjord and there was plenty of good options to meet protein and carb needs. Also great coffee! View was lovely once the cruise ship moved on!

We came here one night after going to the aegir brewery pub. This restaurnt was so good we came back a second night. We had an excellent french waiter who provided great service and was very friendly and interesting to talk to about flam and Norway. We tried the risotto, the stock fish and the beef (all mains) and they... More

We had dinner included in the hotelprice. 3 course dinner but we skipped the soup. We both had beef with vegetables and some gravy. It wasnt tasty and I wouldnt recommend it to anyone but since it tasted nothing it was still edible. All of the staff was hired workers from Eastern europe, no one could speak norwegan and the...

The food is OK, but variable. As a whole, the food seems to be the weakest part of the Fretheim Hotel experience. Breakfasts were good (but not spectacular), for example this is one of the rather few hotels where a soft boiled egg really is soft boiled. Lunch and dinner were rather variable, some good (chicken) some below par (risotto,... More

We visited flam in winter and it is only the few restaurants opening at night. Only 5 min walk from the railway station. Good quality food and warm enviornment.

Very reasonable price for buffet breakfast. Selections comparable to US buffets. You also get a nice view. Receptionist very friendly and helpful.

A seafood smorgasbord to rival any I've experienced. A Pavlova dessert station. Excellent wine list. Delicious salads, veggies, soups, cheese boards, fruits. And other meats if you're not a fan of fresh seafood of every type. All in a splendid large dining room overlooking the Flam wharf. The breakfast is as impressive as well.

stayed for one night and had both dinner and breakfast. Typical buffet style meals with extensive selection. Service was great and meals were great. I sense that it could be exceedingly busy depending on the train and harbor traffic. There really is not a lot of choice in Flam which makes the Hotel a solid choice for a fine meal.

We had a pick of many food choices eating at the buffet. All were good. We had lamb, pork roast, roast beef and salmon as main courses. The salad area had many types of smoked/pickled fish and a wide range of vegetables. There was a good cheese board for dessert along with cake and other choices. All for ~475 NK... More
