4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had a short business stay and enjoyed the hotelbreakfast but also the bed with really good pillows. Had a friendly welcome eventhough it was way past midnight. I would reccomend this hotel and their location in the middle of the city center.

This hotel is perfectly located in Kristiansand. We stayed there for summer vacation, two adult and two children. The hotel is right in the city, and in walking distance from the sea, with very nice surroundings. Lots of restaurants right outside the doorstep, and the cinema is just around the corner. Nice breakfast with something for everyone. What makes it... More

Stayed at the Clarion Hotel Ernst for 4 nights in August. The first night I had a small single room which was not comfortable, but I spoke with a very nice lady in the reception and got a standard room for the next nights. Rooms was ok, Norwegian standard. The breakfast was good, with a lot of different choices. Nice... More

The hotel is very conveniently located, but the beautiful old building is unfortunately not used to its best effect. The decor is almost aggressively ugly - Louis XVII on designer party drugs. Our room overlooking the courtyard was in perpetual twilight. Front desk hardly ever occupied. Breakfast was nice, but overall the hotel was too expensive compared to what we... More

We arrived late at this hotel. The crossing from Hirtshalls, Denmark, to Kristiansand, Norway, was delayed for 3:30 h due to strong winds and stormy seas, and the trip took 4h, 1:30 h longer than usual, so we arrived at the hotel at 1 A.M, in a very cold, windy and rainy night, but we were very well received and...

Large room, but more or less very dark inside, and one window fronted to the lobby leading to less daylight in the room. Breakfast was ok, and there was a good bar. However one person (a man not wearing uniform) in the reception wasn't quite fullfilling the matter of service, but all the ladies there were very service-minded! :)

It is always a pleasure to stay at this hotel! The staff is superb, breakfast lovely and the rooms clean and fresh. Ernst is located in the heart of Kristiansand, close to everything you want to visit here. Ideal for families as the rooms are big and the busses frequently going to "Dyrepaken". Definitely worth a visit.

Our stay was very comfortable and as central as it gets in Kristiansand. The room was modern with a nice view over the harbour and the ferrys to Denmark. We tried both the bar and the breakfast and was happy with the service and the smiles among the personell. Breakfast has everything you want and was not as crowded as... More
