Fretheim Hotel is a beautiful wooden building situated at the head of a scenic fjord arm of the famous Sognefjord. The hotel dates back to the 1870s. They believe in honoring its long traditions, while making sure we have modern amenities and comfort that are well suited to today's guests. The newest wing of their hotel was added in 2000, with the most visible distinction being the glass façade. In the historic wing of our hotel, we have made every effort to preserve the old feel of Fretheim Hotel – in fact it appears much the same now as when it greeted travellers in the 19th century.
The oldest portion of the hotel, which comprises elegant lounges, banquet rooms and conference facilities, is now fully renovated. The historical interiors are very much intact, with antique furniture and large fireplaces. An impressive library has been added to the first floor of the old English Villa. In the main house where hotel founder Christen Fretheim lived, today's guests are greeted by historically furnished rooms, complete with antique furniture, clawfoot bathtubs and draw-chain toilets, as well as many other historically correct details.
Standard rooms are at the rear of the hotel, with views of hiking trails and the mountains. None of the rooms have balconies but a few have ground terraces. The rooms include two twin beds and a combined bathtub and shower. Fourteen of the standard rooms are suitable as single rooms. They feature queen-size beds and a combined bathtub and shower. These rooms are situated on the 3rd floor and have bay windows.
Rooms with fjord view and balcony are situated at the front of the hotel on the 1st and 2nd floor. Each room has a balcony and overlooks the fjord. The rooms include two twin beds and a combined bathtub and shower.
The restaurant in the hotel, have a view looking straight towards the fjord and serves traditional cuisine using local produce from farms nearby.
