  • 8.0.Very good

    This is about the only reasonable standard hotel available in Flam if you want to stay overnight, which we would recommend. It is expensive, but so is almost everything in Norway. The facilities were clean and comfortable, the breakfast buffet was generous and the location just on the waterfront makes ferry connections easy. Other options for stay are mainly B&B or hostel style which may not suit the older traveller.

    We will not be returning - do not have breakfast!

    The hotel is a basic 3 star if you think of the room we had. We loved the fact that we could go out onto a back garden and enjoyed the view of the giant mountains at the back. What was upsetting is the quality of the breakfast. We were clearly served a left over from yesterday with the addition of some lovely fresh smoked salmon and deliscious locally baked bread. We were very disappointed and would not stay in this hotel again because of that. The veg were all brought out old slices lost its firmness clearly from yesterday and the salami was all grey brown old and i wont mention the pate... i lost my appetite by looking at the choice. Please sort your food! Its not great for the hotel of 4 star rating. Beds were lovely and comfortable and the clean. However, you can hear your neighbours every time...the insulation isnt there. Staff are friendly, no fault there. We were so glad we didnt stay for dinner there and instead went to the Marina restaurant down the road. Its a great Pity and not worth the rate we paid!

  • 6.0.Good

    Nice hotel but old.

    1. Breakfast was so so. Not much spread. 2. Very friendly staff. 3. Very tired looking curtains. Feels dirty. Should change. 4. Should refurbish hotel and change some of the in room furniture. The shelf for putting luggage was creaking very badly. 5. The electrical points should be made more accessible for charging of handphones etc

    The hotel room had a little throw back in time which I loved. Its main lobby was more modern while also a little rustic with the post and beam architecture. The food was very good and well priced for a hotel.
