Fabulous 8.6 From 277 reviews

Good 6.0
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

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!

Good 6.0
Satisfactory, considering location and season
Convenient for the fjord trip and walking around Flam. Very nice breakfast. Nice staff. Found the room and furnishings dated and a bit dark (seemed to be missing a lamp?)Expensive for the benefit, but understandably they have a short season I guess.

Pretty views, great stay
Beautiful setting and very nice hotel. There were walking paths close by and the room was clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful and attentive. The view from our room was disappointing - it was a driveway with cars and construction equipment :( otherwise, would highly recommend.
