This is the cleanest place I've ever been in, cleaner than my own apartment. I was all by myself so the whole floor was just for me. Lovely huge bathtub in a lovely (shared) bathroom. Fjordline cancelled the boat from Kristiansand to Denmark and all hotels were fully booked in Kristiansand, otherwise there is no reason to go and sleep in Vennesla.
Close to city center, no problems with parking hotelroom needs to be updated. A little old fashion.
Staff were helpful Towels were not ironed and didn't seem clean. There was not bath matt. Water was not warm enough!
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.
Good location and staff were efficient.
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.
The food was outstanding!! Room could have been cleaner.
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
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.
Central location, clean room, excellent breakfast.
Close to rail & ferry Difficult to fill water bottle
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.
Easy, smart bed, good matress Cleaning under bed, sunny inside room without persienne
Excellent ,compared to price and and expectations.Perfect for just staying overnight.
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.
Staff very friendly. Breakfast good. Very small room.
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 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
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'.
location Rooms are too small. Family room included the third bed in a drawer under the main bed.
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.
Nice both breakfast and dinner buffets. No floor towel in the bathroom.
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.
nothing, worst choince in town everything
Nice style of the hotel
The hotel was clean and efficient. We checked in late and everything was easy and the staff helpful.
Staff were absolutely excellent, as was the breakfast. Modern decor, most impressive. Stayed only one night but felt comfortable in all aspects. Not applicable.
Hotel staff were very helpful. Beds were extremely comfortable. Very close to ferry port and all the amenities of the city.
Evening buffet included. Central location.
Trendy modern decor. Excellent breakfast. Small room
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
very quite but near the airport, really nice room more inforamtion signs in English would be useful
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
no positiv points!!!! Far from Krisiansand, diner only buffet, road constructions near the hotel, strange, ugly hotel nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
The Espresso machine - The breakfast - Fruit available in the lounge - Helpful staff The street entrance was dirty -
The staff was extremely nice, helpful, and pleasant to deal with. The hotel was very conveniently located. The beds were very comfortable.
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.
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.
The room was clean and the location was good The male receptionist was rude, unhelpful and counter productive to our stay in the hotel.
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
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.
Cheap, sited close to the harbour, good parking facilities Had to put on bed-clothes ourselves
This hotel is primarily for those concerned about price: You get a room with beds and a private bathroom, in the centre of town for a low price. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. I think that the beds ought to have been made before my arrival, rather than just leave the sheets in the room.
The hotel is located in the centre of Kristiansand, perfect if you don't have a car and just want to go about town. All rooms have their own bathroom, wich is a big plus. The beds were not very comfortable to sleep in, and the rooms are very noisy.
Very nice price, good for short staying. Small rooms with bathroom in container-type modular building. Everything was OK.
Central location, simple but new and clean facilities. After showering bathroom door should be closed because of sensitivity of the fire alarm - that is very inconcenient as there is just one mirror in the room and it is in the bathroom.
Good location befor farry to Danemark
The staff was totally unhelpfull and unfriendly. Did not give me back my change, because the reception desk doesn not work until 4pm, lack of information; no facilities for eating, even having breakfast, it smells in the room when the heater is on.
The hotel was extremely convenient to both the train station and the Colour Line boat, which is what we wanted. The top bunk is too close to the ceiling. My daughter had to pull the cot from underneath the bed and use that.
