Weekend stay. It was a very nice place. Modern and sophisticated. The best bed I've ever slept in. The nights would be better if it wasn't so noisy. The heat controller is impossible to understand, so ask the staff. Not possible to open window.

A nice hotel. Pleasant personnel that were smiling and welcoming. A very good breakfast. Ok-sized rooms. On the downside: Our room were facing the main street and a nightclub. A lot of noise during the night.

Beutiful hotel located in the harbour of Kristiansand . Renovated om a classy but modern style. Calm atmosphere, splendid food and kind and serviceminded personal. Rooms are tasty and clean . Some traffic outside so recommand 3-4 floor for rooms with street and seaview. Looking forward to come back !

Clarion Hotel Ernst is one of the best hotels in Norway. Historical building with a very smart and fresh design. Great people working there - great food and great service. Close to everything in Kristiansand. Looking forward to my next visit to Kristiansnad and Clarion Hotel Ernst.
