“Lovely Hotel”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

The Clarion Collection Hotel in Drammen was such a surprise! A lovely hotel, although unassuming from outside, we were greeted warmly by the staff and were told that there were complementary waffles and then later complementary dinner buffet! What a treat, and the dinner buffet was GOOD.... The hotel is a short (20 minute) walk from the center of Drammen, which we highly recommend people to visit. Overall, a great hotel.

My choice for hotel in this area - whilst hotel does not have an abundance of facilities (ie pool) the staff more than make up with advice and a friendly welcome. The buffet supper is a welcome treat for the traveller who simply needs to have something to eat and get their head down. Also close enough to the train station and worth the extra 10 minutes walk in relation to close hotels. Rooms always very clean and the relaxed lounge area a definite welcome when you are away from home.

Highlight of any visit is the smile from reception when you arrive.

I stayed there for 3 nights with husband and child. We got a spacoius room with an extra bed, and that didn't even feel crowded in the room.
Room was clean, and bathroom big enough.
The hotels is situated near a road and the railway, but t0we were not bothered by any noise- even with a light sleeper for a son.

The highlights of the hotel are the breakfast and evening meal buffets that are included in the price. Both hot and cold foods are served.

Staying with a kid, we also appreciated the playroom near the diningarea, where there was alot of toys and games for the kids to play with.
The hotel has a workout area as well, but we did not use it.

Will definitly reccomend to both familys as well as solo travellers!

After a whole day in the car it was perfect to check in and then sit down in the restaurant and eat from the very nice buffé. A good night sleep, half an hour in the gym and then eat a very nice breakfast. After that it was nice to continue the trip in the car. The staff so nice and friendly.

Rooms are always very clean. The beds can be a little firm.

underfloor heating in the bathroom is nice, The shower is pretty spacious. Toiletries provided are OK.

The evening buffet is included in the price. The food is always well prepared / presented. The few times i have stayed i have noticed that it can be a bit "same-y"

Breakfast is good. Again, a good selection of food, hot & cold.

Trying to get a coffee when the restaurant is not open is difficult. A couple of times I've given up trying

Room Tip: Rooms facing the railway line can be noisy

Dear Guests,
we really appreciate you taking the time to write us a review. Although your rating of us is medium, when I read this review, I found that the words are more positive. I'm so sorry we didn't provide you with the information that the coffee is always available and free in the dining room. If there's no one there, just ask the staff in the front desk, they will help you. Next time you're visiting us, be sure to let us know what we can do to make your stay even better.

Best regards

Stayed here for a week for business. The hotel is clean and situated in a nice city in Norway. It is close to the city centre and easily accessible. The hotel itself is modern. Boasts excellent facilities and has free wifi throughout.

The rooms was spacious, clean and very quiet. There is no difficulty sleeping here. The tv has a range of channels and there is a media port for HDMI, USB etc on the desk. All of the above was added to by the fantastic staff at this hotel. From reception through to restaurant/bar and room maintenance. Everyone made me feel very welcome.

The food here is excellent. I ate here many times during the week and found the food to vary greatly and was always top quality.

You could have many perspectives on a hotel like this.

One perspective could be: Yet another boring, slightly worn, no-frills business hotel in a dull neighbourhood.

Even if the above is true - I rate it 5 stars because of the following features - which makes it a perfect fit for me - a regular business traveller.

1. 3 minutes walk from Drammen Central Station (great!)
2. Everything in the room works, and all what I need is there (ok!)
3. Sleep quality is good - a nice bed to my liking (great!)
4. Noise levels (even in a room facing the railway line) are ok and almost no trains a night (ok!)
5. Excellent, included-in-your-stay, dinner/buffet from 18:00-21:00 (really great!)
6. 2 minutes to running paths leading into the "mountains" (really great!)
7. Clearly-above-standard fitness facilities (really great!)
8. Above-average breakfast and free coffee-specialities (great!)
9. I felt welcomed by the hotel staff (great!)

That I why I like this hotel - and will come back. This is not the sort of romantic-get-away hotel - just a really nice business hotel in a city which otherwise is fairly dull (sorry Drammen).

Room Tip: If you prefer to go to bed early, prefer open windows (at summer time) and prefer quiet - ask for a...
