Stayed 2 nights at this Thon hotel in Arendal in southern Norway. It is far and away the best all-around Thon hotel I've stayed at. Wonderful buffet breakfast (heads and shoulders above most, with the exception of Scandic), and they also serve a tasty evening meal free of charge (only the Clarion Collection hotels have traditionally offered this). Room was...

The hotel is very central in the city, but as usual with Thon hotels you will have to look for a parking spot nearby - in this case you may be lucky to find a free spot in the nearby 'mountain cave' :-). The room was nice, clean and no probs. Breakfast on the restaurant in the 6th floor was...

Nice room, good food and friendly staff. Nice location right in the middle of the city. Near the water or river with ferries, a boat trip is a possibility. Close to the shopping centre and restaurants.

Newly renovated hotel in a very good location downtown Arendal. Close to the harbour, shopping and many restaurants. Nice reception area and the room was very modern and clean. We got upgraded to a bigger room which was very nice, it even got two TV's. But the view from our room at 2nd floor was very poor, just a backyard.....
