Stayed in the Quality Hotel & Resort Hotel in Kristiansand. Very Nice traditional hotell just 10 minutes outside the center of Kristiansand, but so close to all you need. Stayed only one night, but enjoyed it to the full. Thank you all will come back soon

There had been misunderstandings in the booking, mainly thanks to the Skooch booking service. However, the Hotel Director took care of the problems in an excellent way, and made sure we had an unforgettable stay, well above our expectations!

We were greeted by 2 girls on reception who were extremely friendly and helpful with us during our stay. Free wifi at the hotel. Mind it expires around 8am in the mornong so you need to get another free code if your staying longer or later.

We met with a group of friends from Europe and the USA. Everything possible was done to help us have a good time, good food and special things to make our group feel special. We also noticed the nice things they did for children staying at the hotel also. Although there were many other groups and families there at the same time they did not interfere with our group at all.

I will highly recommend staying at the Quality Hotel & Resort in Kristiansand. We were in a group of 40 women and felt well taken care of the entire time of 4 days. Very warm atmosphere with numerous meeting rooms and sitting areas. The rooms were very clean with heated bath room floors and comfortable beds. The breakfast buffet was enormous with lots of different kinds of fish, breads, fruit, omelettes, etc. Children must like the ample play area in the basement. The pool is heated. The friendly staff made all the difference with their constant smiles and willingness to accommodate us. Management and staff were introduced to us. They even surprised us with a special cake they had prepared for our last gathering.

Room Tip: Rooms facing away from entrance may be quieter when windows are open

I took my 1.5 yo and 4 yo to Dyreparken. I initially want to book and Rica hotel, but unfortunately they are fully booked. So, the only choice is Quality Hotel which is the next closet hotel to the park. The room is quite small as we expected. The basement playroom is a big hit for our kids! They love playing there as much as the park! The breakfast is superb, too much choice to choose from! They even has hot buffet which is indeed a lunch menu for me! The crowds is about average, when I pass the Rica hotel the parking lot is full there.... If I will go again, I would choose Rica which is just at outside the entrance to Dyreparken and looks modern and new.

Easy to reach, close to Kristiansand. Rooms Are very clean but not modern. The bed is luxury. Quiet rooms. Small bath. Funny smell in halls and hotelroom. Stale? Dampens the overal impression from 4 to 3.
