Overall a very nice experience. Beautiful view of the archipelago from the spacious room. Excellent breakfast. Only negative factor was that the hotel was a bit understaffed this weekend which led to very slow service from the restaurant.

Great hotel in a wonderful location overlooking the sea and open views across the way. Great restaurant for dinner and fantastic breakfast. The hotel is very clean and well presented and has a shipping theme running through the décor, with many interesting historic photos and artifacts from ships owned by local companies. I would recommend this hotels to both business... More

If you choose a room by the waterside you will feel like sleep by the sea. Small boats are passing and the sun will rise early in the morning. The rooms are clean and nice, but a little bit "out of time". What about a small facelift? By the way - The best hotel in Arendal

What a fantastic hotel, from the service, to the rooms, to the views. The breakfast room(breakfast included) has sweeping views of the sound; and if that isn't enough it seems there is a bit of a hotel breakfast war breaking out in Norway and this place is among the best! The rooms are excellent and the hotel is in the... More

generally pleasant hotel and great location. Rooms a bit hit and miss - struggled with air conditioning and had to swap rooms (better but still a little cooler than I would like), good view at breakfast!

I imagine Arendal to be a summer city, I seem to have been mistaken. The whole city surprised me, and this hotel really added to the experience. I got a nice, fair sized room, with a nice view of the outside areas. If I had got a room on the opposite side, I would have had sea view (picture attached).... More

Arendal was a standout business trip in 2015 and this excellent hotel helped a lot. My room was small, but the beds were comfortable and sitting by the window looking out over the sound in the afternoon afforded wonderful views. I ate at the hotel restaurant on the evening I arrived and the food was very good - it made... More

Stayed one night. Very pleasant experience. Room was nice, I stayed in a superior room and had a great view of the sea. Comfy bed, big bathroom, very clean. Breakfast was really good, with lots of veggie options which is quite rare in Norway. Staff was very helpful, friendly and polite.

Arendal is a wonderful place and this hotel is the place to stay. I was here on business and the room, overl,ooking the water was peaceful and provided a great place to relax and work when not in meetings. The breakfast was outstanding. The staff was top notch and very helpful. I will stay here next time, no question
