“Good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

It is a nice hotel , good service and cleening. The breakfast and evening food very good. The rooms are perfect. No noise in the night and short way to restaurants and bars. More parking places would have been nice , but i was lucky , took the last spot. I recommand this hotel.

My wife and I decuded to stay at Skien, home of Henrik Ibsen and the great country singer Heidi Hauge, to have a short trip on the Telemark Kanal. We decided to stay at this hotel because of its central location.

The hotel overlooks the river with its series of fountains in the middle. Outside the hotel there is a floating restaurant and alongside the hotel there us a cafe/bar with outside seating. The hotel has limited free street parking. If this is full there is a large public car park about 100M. away. The cost for a day is 120NOK. which is about £12.

The receptionist, Heidi, is very pleasant and willing to help with local information. She suggested the Brekke park and outdoor building museum to us. This is well worth a visit. The rooms a fairly simple but clean and adaquate. We heard no noises during the night and the bed was exceptionally comfortable.

Free waffles , tea and coffee are available during the afternoon. The evening buffet meal is included in the room price , we paid 1300 NOK or about £130 per night, as is breakfast.

This modern hotel which had a comfortable feel about it and was not overly busy makes a good place to stay when visiting Skien. The only downsudes are the fairly limited choice of food, the possible difficulty in getting a free parking space and the lackmof a proper bar. The bar is not a problem because there are a number of eating and drinking establishments along the riverfront.

Finally, it is worth taking a trip on the Telemark Kanal. The boat leaves Skien at 8.10 a..m. or Ulefoss, a half hours drive north, at 19.30 a.m. during the summer.

One week at this hotel and you really feel like home. The staff is so helpful you almost forget that you are in Norway. The hotel offers free waffles every afternoon and free dinner if you are too tired to go to a restaurant.
The rooms are tidy and neat, though the interior could use an upgrade soon. Every thing else is super duper!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a river view

Nice Hotel, with nice rooms.(several with balcony), but its the atmosphere that strikes you. The uniqe staff, and the overall "welcome home" feel you get when you just enter the door to the hotel. For me, the clarion collection hotels are my home away from home. Only so much more comfertable. But don't let yourself fool. They are as professional as any other full service hotel in the world. Only so much better when it comes to hospitality.

I do use this hotel regularly 30-50 times each year for business purposes and only sometimes for leisure. Nice clean rooms, nice staff and complete breakfast. Recommendable.
Perfectly situated for leisure travels on "The Telemark Canal - one of the most beautiful waterways in the world"
