Windows where drafty, rooms cold.
Great location to marinas, shopping, old town, restaurants and pubs. Easy walking access to many sites in Kristiansand. Although the room was not big, it was clean and decore was nice. Lobby has 3 computers for guests to use with free internet. Hotel restaurant was not very good, but there are many great places to eat near the hotel.
A very poor weekend all round, if it had not been for family i would have returned home to stavanger. When we checked in they did not tell that there was no hot water, it was not until you got up the next morning that you found out and it had been like this for a week
Close to city center, no problems with parking hotelroom needs to be updated. A little old fashion.
Great size, facilities and cleanliness in the room. Easy check in and chek out. The hotel (apart from the breakfast staff) looked and felt professional to the core. The room was worn and tattered, and could really do with a makeover. The furniture as well as the wallpaper had holes and looked worse for wear. However the room was great value for money, had more facilities than we expected and was overall a comfortable room. The staff in the brekfastroom were rude and impatient, however not with me so really shouldn't complain.
The food was outstanding!! Room could have been cleaner.
Good location and staff were efficient.
Central location, clean room, excellent breakfast.
The hotel was clean and tidy. The service from the staff was excellent The decor was a lttle bit out dated and could do with being brighten up. Use lighter colours in the room.
Good harbour view. Very good breakfast. There did not seem to be a lounge. No swimming pool. No free internet access unless you have your own laptop.
Staff were helpful Towels were not ironed and didn't seem clean. There was not bath matt. Water was not warm enough!
Staff very friendly. Breakfast good. Very small room.
Excellent ,compared to price and and expectations.Perfect for just staying overnight.
Close to rail & ferry Difficult to fill water bottle
It is a modern and clean hotel,location near train and bus station, just several minutes walk. The zoo in Kristiansand is the best I have visited. The room is too small
Although very basic, this hotel served the purpose of an equipped overnight stay with a reasonable choice of hot and cold food easily available. Clean and spacious throughout and very friendlt and helpful staff. The metal beds were not the most comfortable I have used. Not a hotel if you are looking for the slightest decor or refinement.
It seems that the hotel follows a 'no-nonsense' policy, comparable with that of Ryanair (if I may say so). Means: young casual personnel and basic facilities in a modern jacket. We stayed here one night after arriving with the Ferry from Danmark, before starting a tour through Norway. For one night the hotel is okay and for budget-travellers it is okay, too. I suppose for Norwegian understandings the hotel was quit cheap and therefor one shouldn't expect lots of space an luxury. One should see everything in its right context, so we have no complaints. However I want to mention the extremely small room we had. It felt like we were sleeping in a 'walk-in closet'.
Easy, smart bed, good matress Cleaning under bed, sunny inside room without persienne
Friendly and Helpful Staff. Clean rooms. Quiet, no loud music. Lack of wardrobe in the bedroom. (There was too little space to store clothes). Breakfast finished l little too early.
location Rooms are too small. Family room included the third bed in a drawer under the main bed.
Friendly, helpful staff, extremely clean, good location, price fairly reasonable by Norwegian standards. Room was very bare - obviously set up to allow space for the luggage of multiple occupants - but as a result there wasn't any furniture to put things on except for a tiny desk.
nothing, worst choince in town everything
Nice both breakfast and dinner buffets. No floor towel in the bathroom.
The hotel was clean and efficient. We checked in late and everything was easy and the staff helpful.
The location to where I wanted to be. The breakfast was excellent. The layout of the restaurant very nice I did not like the fact that I did not get information at check in that they would hold back 30% on top of the amount I paid for the room as a deposit. This lack of information ruined my holiday, as I did not have the money to spend on shopping etc.
Nice style of the hotel
The hotel is close to the highway and only 15 minute driving from the ferry. The hotel looks from the outside quite depressing, the surrounding area only has a parking place and of course the theme park. The interior could be more "special". The service in the restaurant was minimum, so people were not always helped to get drinks or to pay afterworths.
upgrade to a vip room; location; staff
excelent breakfast, vere friendly staff, they offer us better = sillent room when we had complain about noise from outside (pub is opposite hotel) everything is little bit "old fashion" - furniture has it own age, will be fine to refresh it.
Perfect location, perfect food, Very nice lady at the reception (especially during the evening). Will be back next time again. No complaints at all.
Clean, modern room in the centre of Grimstad. Breakfast was insufficiently replenished.
Location in the city centre, close to sea side
The hotel was very nice, good breafast!
NIce hotel with very friendly and efficient staf.Good restaurant and a very good breakfast n.a.
Great setting, above all in summertime. The hotel is made of 2 wings. The historic, with old rooms and the new wing with (I heard from other people) brand new rooms. I have been upgraded to a bigger room free of charges. Breakfast was very good (the breakfast room has a seaview). The room was facing the front parking. Room was quite basic and at the beginning a bit cool.
Fairly handy for the airport as I had a 06.30 flight the next morning.
Outside of te hotel looks promising.. yet the inside is outdated and a bit sloppy. Beds are poor in comfort. Empty minibar in the room and limited hospitality when arriving late.
The hotel staff was very service minded and welcoming and we especially felt that the children was very welcome at "Barnas hotell". Good location near Dyreparken
The pool was nice in the heat. The rooms were too hot, no way of controlling temperature such as air conditioning or fans. This made it very uncomfortable and thus I would not stay here again during summer.
no positiv points!!!! Far from Krisiansand, diner only buffet, road constructions near the hotel, strange, ugly hotel nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
i liked location, food, facilities for children, room, bar. you have a good staff, ecpecially guys in the bar who were responsible for childrens disko)
Close to airport. Easy to find. very comfortable. Excellent staff. A better selection on the menu is the only, minor, negative point.
very quite but near the airport, really nice room more inforamtion signs in English would be useful
Excellent central location 2mins from the ferry for Denmark, also an easy walk to the pleasant area around the Cathedral with good choice of restaurants etc. Brilliant coffee machine in the lobby. Good breakfast. Staff very welcoming; bike storage no problem, large carparking facility. Several Mac computers for the free use of guests - wonderful. The refurbished part of this hotel has been agressively overdesigned: Weird decor in the entrance; the bathroom was beautifully fitted out, but the room had all the charm of a morgue and was roughly the same temperature. The aircon can not be turned off and the temperature is centrally regulated between 18 and 20 degrees. I shivered in my coat after a hard day's cycling. Not recommended for a romantic adventure!
Staff were absolutely excellent, as was the breakfast. Modern decor, most impressive. Stayed only one night but felt comfortable in all aspects. Not applicable.
Evening buffet included. Central location.
Hotel staff were very helpful. Beds were extremely comfortable. Very close to ferry port and all the amenities of the city.
Trendy modern decor. Excellent breakfast. Small room
Hotel was nice and clean. Breakfast was nice. Difficult to get to due to roadworks etc. Had ordered baby cot, however didn't get this. No night staff -the cleaner or painter had to let us in when we arrived after midnight.
Reception personel was very gentle and disposable and breakfast very attractive. Very noisy during the night because of drunk people hanging on local bars and screaming on the streets under hotels windows.
In the middle of town, pleasant staff, good breakfast Rooms were rather basic with not a very cosy feel - seemed to be a redecorated office builiding
The room was clean and the location was good The male receptionist was rude, unhelpful and counter productive to our stay in the hotel.
The Espresso machine - The breakfast - Fruit available in the lounge - Helpful staff The street entrance was dirty -
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful e.g. we got great advice for our weekend trip in Norway. Our room was clean and we had a huge bathroom (4 bedroom). The breakfast buffet was also very good.
The staff was extremely nice, helpful, and pleasant to deal with. The hotel was very conveniently located. The beds were very comfortable.
