“A pleasant suprise”
Reviewed September 22, 2010

I had to spend two nights in Drammen, Norway. The hotels and the surroundings turned the stay into a pleasant surprise. The rain was pouring down as I arrived in late afternoon and the rain stayed on. Then I had to trust the restaurant at the hotel. This was not a bad choice. The creamed fish soup was delicious with large, tasty chunks of halibut and salmon with fresh, juicy mussels on top. You can count on the local Aass beer also, being a brewery that sticks to tradition. The room was medium spacious. The only thing that was not on top was the shower; with separate fawcetts for hot and cold water it was ticky to find the right temperature. Being rather tall it also turned into a problem that it was fixed rather low on the wall and I had to go down on my knees to wash my hair. Perhaps a practical joke? Breakfast was super. Nice people. I gladly stay there next time I have to go to Drammen. Thank you, Park!

Nice looking hotel outside, part of the rooms in bad shape, would need updating, no airconditioning and opening the window did not help much. Very poor cleaning, we stayed 3 nights and there were practically no cleaning at all during that time.

A colleague and I stayed at the Rica Park on the night of 26 March. Our rooms had been reserved some weeks before by a local Norwegian company who were visiting.

When we arrived, we were told that no reservation had been made, despite us having a reference number. In fact we did have reservations, but they were recorded on a seperate computer system from the one used to allocate rooms and now they were fully booked!

After a lot of checking on both computer systems, we were found 2 rooms. Unfortunately mine was obviously a room kept for such an occasion. It was very small, tired and had a smelly bathroom. I tried to change it but was told there was nothing else. This was disappointing as we had booked several weeks before. I was not given a discount and my complaints about this were greeted by a shrug of the receptionists shoulder...

Overall, the hotel appeared to be very tired and in need of refurbishment. for example the lounge furniture was frayed and worn and most of the carpets looked past their best.

There is limited free parking available in the street outside and a car park opposite, which being in Norway is very expensive (like everything else!)

When checking out, we could not pay by credit card as there was aproblem with the computer system. We had to leave details for payments to be taken later!
