My wife and I had our wedding night at the hotel, and we are really happy with our stay. The room was clean and the people working at the reception and bar were very polite and kind. The hotel is located in the middle of Kristiansand with shopping and restaurants very close.

I stayed here for a night because I had a great time at a Clarion up north. The night was eh. The hotel itself is beautiful and the room was very nice (if a bit small). The location is also perfect being so close to the bus station and main shopping areas. However, there was a very, very loud event... More

Stayed there one evening. The hotel is clean, breakfast excellent and the staff is friendly but sadly some of them need training in customer service. Our room was extremely warm, 28 degrees c which wouldn't have been a problem if the ac worked or we could open a window. First complained before we went out to dinner, and they said... More

As usual your stay in Kristiansand is always elevated when you stay at Ernst. Good service and nice hotel. The breakfast is always one of the most important things starting a busy day. And this hotel always delivers a good selection of light and more advanced dishes.

Location is great and looks Nice. Don't get fooled by the difference between moderate and standard single room. There is no difference according to the front office staff. SIngle rooms are so small you have to go outside to change your opinion. There is no light switch in the room to turn out the lights except from the main switch... More

In conjunction with a dinner function we stayed the night in Clarion Hotel Ernst. Very happy with the room. Had what was needed and represented value for the money. A good Norwegian breakfast ended the visit. Good service from all staff in the hotel.

Great design, modern, lovely decorated. Centrally located in the center of Kristiansand, close to the ferries. The breakfast was absolutely gorgeous, great selections. Nice family room with a bunkbed.

Stayed her for a couple of nights. Great hotel with good service. Great rooms, a bit small but comfortable. They could be a bit more thorough in cleaning the bathroom, a bit too much dust on top of the makeup mirror. Otherwise we had a great stay! Breakfast was excellent! If there's anything we would comment, is that the staff... More
