“Nice stay. Great suite. Friendly and helpful staff .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

The hotel must have been the Crème De la Crème in the 80-ies.

Room was obviously not completely modern and new, but spacious and clean.
It has everything you need. Minibar, free WIFI, TV with radio, balcony, working desk, all bathroom accessories, bathtub, a wonderful bed, coffee/ tea bar, ironing possibilities, comfortable seating area and robe/ slippers.

The staff is friendly and helpful. There is always a smile and a hand.
This is greatly appreciated in these busy times.

The location is absolutely splendid. Restaurants, shopping, clubs, bars/ pubs, sights and even the towns cinema are all in the immediate neighborhood.
The bar in the lobby has a wide selection of possibilities.
The breakfast doesn’t lack anything - it is complete.

Stayed one weekend i Desember.
Upgraded to business room and fruit/cake waiting in the room, since i have Gold status. Very nice surprise.

Room was old and tired, seriously in need for a massive facelift.
Thats the only negative i have to say.

Room clean, good space, free coffee and a nice bed. Wifi good and an excellent breakfast.

Staff always smiling and the location is 100 %.

This is a really good hotel.
Highly recommended.

Stayed December 2014

This hotel is in my experience by far the best hotel in Kristiansand city area,- all basic expectations are met by several visits. Friendly and helpful staff,- clean rooms,- ok size,- nice beds and most facilities like minibar/tea/coffee/workdesk workspace ok,- breakfast is not excellent but have most of the items you would expect. The location is perfect,- and the price in relation to all this is probably the best value for money you get in this area.

The staff are wonderful and will assist you in any way they can. The rooms are good and clean and the breakfast is good. The location is great and it is easy to find when driving. There is parking right outside and there is even a parking garage within walking distance.

Exellent hotel for both human beings and dogs. Great restaurant Brasserie C and bar. Very friendly staff, you get the feeling of comming home. Great surroundings, close to seaside and Nice paths to walk With or without dogs. Close to city center shopping or just enjoy. I can highly reccomend this hotel to everyone else with or without dogs.
