As with most Quality Hotels, the rooms are excellent and comfortable and the quality of the food served is good. However this hotel, particulary in the summer months, appears to cater for families and children and the hotel staff have a lot of events organised to keep children entertained and amused. There is a Zoo right next door to the... More

I have been at that hotel for only one night, and it was long enough! Where to start, the room is clean, thats a plus, the almost rotten grill food in the fridge instead...... We asked for a double, basicaly there were 2 single bed put together, that weren't really fitting right, so several times during the night i woke... More

Have been here several times during conferences, but yesterday was the first time I stayed over. - The room was fair enough, clean despite feeling of old carpet. Not more to cheer about. - The bathroom was rather small, and for the first time, I experience a hotel that had the wash was placed outside the bathroom? Strange to see... More

Location is great in relation to the zoo, but other than that this hotel is supremely overpriced. We came during Easter season and the hotel seemed very understaffed. There were many families who waited well over an hour after the check in time. Some people were offered free dinner vouchers, but not everyone. Some children received Easter eggs with candy... More

I stayed here for one night before a morning flight from Kristiansand. The airport is about 10 minutes away by car. A large group was checking in before me, which held things up. The weather was very bad (wind and rain) and there was some noise in my first room. I went down to reception and received another room without... More

I always try to use Choice_hotels when I travel around in Norway and this hotel has been used many times over the last years. It is not in the centre of Kristiansand, but placed close tp the highway and Zoo outside Kristiansand. Friendly staff, clean room and very good for conferences. The food is really nice. During the summer when... More

The hotel rooms are worn and represent a budget-standard at best. The dinner-buffet and pizza-menu was very disappointing, especially at the prices they operate with. Breakfast buffet was better, but not impressive. I understand the principle of market price, but the prices they charge for this product during high season is way above the limit of what is acceptable. Paying... More

Stayed on the new refurnished suite with my family. We also once stayed in a connection room (two rooms with door in between) Friendly hotel staff and child friendly surrounding. Outside warm pool to enjoy from March to October:) Across the E18 from Kristiansand Zoo and 15 minutes from Kristiansand city center Can recommend this hotel!

Great hotel, very close to the zoo (there is a bridge over the road that you have to walk over to get there, only takes 5 minutes or so). The hotel has fantastic outdoor play area and a swimming pool. The hotel was clean and the staff nice and friendly and they do all they can to entertain the youngest... More
