There is a lot right about a stay here, it is a very peaceful location, the bed was comfortable with good quality linen, and the bathroom was clean and functioned well. There was a full choice at breakfast and the 3-course dinner was very well presented and delightful. In reality, it you wish to enjoy a drink with your dinner you are going to eat here as it is a drive to the nearest restaurant, and Arendal is 10-15 minutes away. As far as value for money goes we cannot complain as find the right deal and the hotel is good value. Our only negative view is whether the appearance of the building lives up to the 'herregaard' name - there is no grand driveway up to the place, instead it comes up to the side of the building complete with fire-escapes (no complaint about fire escapes, only their appearance). Entering the reception, one might expect to see the reception desk before seeing the bathers in the pool. And scattered around the hotel are a couple of buildings that do not appear coordinated in appearance with the hotel, and in one case in need of redecoration. Look away from this and Arendal Herregaard presents a relaxing experience at a reasonable price
