I am frequently in Kristiansund due to work. I prefer this hotel because of the fantastic breakfast buffet :) The lobby area is ok, but the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are good, comfy bed. Ask for harbour view. But the do need some TLC soon... The Fitness room is veeeeeery small, and not very well equipt.... More

Stayed one night in december. Hotel was decorated nicely and the breakfast was great. Price was OK but room was terrible. The smell from drain in bathroom was so overwealming that we had to keep the door shut at all times. When showering it was even worse. Even using the sink was difficult. This room should not be rented out... More

Loved this hotel, heated bathroom floors, comfy bed and most importantly great breakfast selection. Not there long enough to comment on location to stores etc but if we have to go back there for business this is where we will stay.

The hotel is a little run down. The rooms have no AC and the large windows can barely open. Rooms are clean but the bath feels old. On the good side, the best breakfast I had in Norway is included in the price. The staff was friendly. They willingly changed my room from facing the street to facing the water.... More

It's not an especially attractive building. No parking so grab the first spot on the street u can find. It's rather tired and in need of new carpets and furnishings. But the bed was comfortable and the bathroom nice. The rooftop bar was just re-opened but it isn't well stocked. Breakfast was pretty good.

Used this hotel for a weekend. Friendly people at the reception and quite helpful. The rooms are continental standard and does have a comfy bed. The first night we couldn't sleep because a couple next door had loud sex for several hours. So the rooms are not isolated that well! The breakfast is amazing, they have absolutely everything and it... More

Spend one night at this hotel. The best is the location, ask for sea view, and the breakfast with a lot to chose from. Negative: The fitness room is very limited and the rooms should soon be renovated. It was clean, but our bathroom door could hardly be locked. But reception was friendly and helpful.
