Spent one night with my daughter. The hotell have seen better days, and is a bit worn down. Nice staff and friendly atmosphere, Good breakfast. Grimstad is a small town and everything is within walking distance.

We were welcomed by a very nice woman who were constantly smiling! Easy to get to the room and we were lucky enough to get a room with an excellent view! Some of the rooms can have a pretty horrible view so I'd advise to ask for a room with a good view if you go there. The room was... More

We booked this hotel on short notice with Eurobonus. Despite arriving early at 8am we were given a room straight away. The room was small for a family of 4 but met our needs. The hotel is cosy and intimate and staff friendly. Breakfast was excellent - varied and staff going round to fill with coffee. Parking as mentioned by... More

I stayed here for 5 days on a recent business trip and had a very pleasant time. The hotel is very clean and friendly. Welcoming and helpful staff. My room was a little small but the hotel was very busy (my colleague had a much larger and nicer room than mine, lucky sod). However it was clean and fresh and... More

We have often stayed at Rica hotels and found them good value for money. This hotel is located inthe centre of Grimstad. It is possible to park in front of the hotel for a few minutes to unload luggage but then you must use the central car park in front of the hotel (extremely expensive after the NOK 1 for... More

This is simply a really good hotel. Good service, perfect breakfast, nice and clean. The family room we had (in the newer part of the hotel), was spacious, clean and functional. Typical Contemporary Scandinavian style, I would say. Try the roof terrace, it has stunning views. We had an excellent stay. Overall highly recommendable!

Besides de convenience of being located just at further steps to the HQ of the company I work for, I can say that it is excellent. Nice staff, complete breakfast, spacious rooms always neat and clean. The only suggestion I make is the Cable TV that could include in the package news channels in other languages than norwegian. Definitely recommended.
