“Eat and sleep well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

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

Stayed May 2014, traveled as a couple

This was an excellent stay. There was 3 things that made this stay very good. The first was the service, high class. From the cheif to the spa personal. Always with a smile and helpful. The second thing was the atmosphere. With a very nice spa and good big rooms. The last thing that made this stay very good was the food! A young cheif but some great food. Big portions, a lot of different tastes. Big breakfast, great salads for lunch and great tenderloin and reindeer for dinner. For a good price, this was great value for our money! Worth a stay. Comming back for a stay at summertime.

Though the place is breath taking, the hotel rooms are claustrophobic. It would be ok for a couple, but for a family it is way too little to stay in a standard room. They do offer junior suites at a much higher price, but because it was just a 2 night stay, we decided not to change rooms. Ideal for those looking for a hide away, get-away-from-city-life place as the beach is a 10 minute walk away from the hotel. There are also paths to walk in the woods which are also nice, but if you are not the walking type then there is not much more to do. Arendal is a picturesque little town but again, there is not much to do. Instead we ended up going to the zoo near the southern city of Kristiansand.
The place is famous for its gorgeous spa. Top of the line treatments and a warm water inside pool with a fantastic view of the ocean through its squeaky clean windows.
Strangely enough, our room was not cleaned, they claimed they did not know we were staying an additional night.... many apologies and eventually they sent in a lady who changed our sheets.
