I booked this hotel online through Tripadvisor and based on the reviews and pictures expected a more upscale hotel to what was actually there. Mandal is a small quiet town whose claim to fame is it's beaches as it is the Southern most town in all of Norway. Since the temperature while we were there never got above 50 degrees,... More

Small hotel in the center of Mandal. As always in Norway expensive in relation to what they deliver. Small hotel room, the size reminded me of some New York hotel rooms. Shower/wc use vacuum, rather noisy, like a cabin in a cruise ship. No clothes closet, just clothes hangers. Room was nice and clean. Only one key to the room.... More

This is my second visit - both on business. The hotel has lots of character and is very well placed to enjoy the surrounding area. The food is excellent, both at dinner and breakfast. The rooms are well appointed and all if the staff are friendly.

Based on location and price I was disappointed to find a very small room, devoid of any charm. The bathroom was small, but functional. The location was nice, however I wished I had known that the would be driving pylons for a new construction a block away - starting at 7:30. Parking was a nuisance because one has to rely... More

We had the apartment as we were a family visiting Mandal for a wedding, we were charmed by the hotel, the staff did everything they could for us, there were free refreshments all day including fantastic waffles and breakfast that was worth getting up early for. Only negatives were the curtains were too thin so it was broad daylight very... More

Here you will find yourself in an old merchants house now transferred to a hotel w a small restaurant and bar. The rooms are smalll but beds comfortable. Bathrooms are in need for some upgrading but works. Price level slightly above what u expect but again, this is Norway.
