Beautiful old breakfast restaurant with timber walls. The hotel is the middle of Grimstad centrum. Large room, with a nice bed. It is a little hard to get there by car because of narrow streets, but then there is little or no noise from traffic. Friendly an helpful staff.

In principle, if you want a clean place with limited amenities and a great location then this works. We travelled as a family and our room was tiny - about the size of a box room for 3 people. Room not cleaned to a decent standard, so we ended up giving the bathroom a going-over ourselves... not what you really want from a holiday experience in a hotel.

Breakfast was OK(ish) although rather crowded with guests falling over each other vying for the coffee machine.

Hotel advertised a gym that was actually a few minutes walk up the road... just beware if staying in winter / rainy days.

Common parts & decor are fun.

Location us great.

Nice rooms, good atmosphere in the hotel, cool but cosy building. Slightly noisy with regards to the location in the city centre, but I think that was due to a large wedding right next to the hotel and it was Saturday night. Clean, helpfull staff and great breakfast!

Grimstad is a cute and exciting city with little streets and quiet life.
The hotel is ok but just ok! It has gone downhill since the Rica time and has not been managed to keep the charm. The rooms and breakfast are barely ok. But the parking problems and check-in makes the grade go down. The small parking garage that belonged to the hotel is now set to Europark which means that the hotel has no control and you must expect to go far from the hotel to park. Check-in takes too long and is characterized by a poor system and no efficiency.

Hi.

Thank you for your feedback.
I will forward this to the management.

Please ask the reception for parking when you arrive, we have many alternatives nearby.
