“Godd family facilities, but grossly overpriced”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

The hotel rooms are worn and represent a budget-standard at best.
The dinner-buffet and pizza-menu was very disappointing, especially at the prices they operate with. Breakfast buffet was better, but not impressive.
I understand the principle of market price, but the prices they charge for this product during high season is way above the limit of what is acceptable. Paying 2.000 kroner or even up to 3.500 kroner per night for this standard is downright disrespectful towards the guests.
On the positive side the facilities for children and families were good with plenty opportunities for playing and dedicated childrens buffets.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms in the center of the hotel. Noise from the disco will keep children awake. There is also...

Stayed on the new refurnished suite with my family. We also once stayed in a connection room (two rooms with door in between)

Friendly hotel staff and child friendly surrounding. Outside warm pool to enjoy from March to October:)

Across the E18 from Kristiansand Zoo and 15 minutes from Kristiansand city center

Can recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Families = connection rooms or suites!

Great hotel, very close to the zoo (there is a bridge over the road that you have to walk over to get there, only takes 5 minutes or so). The hotel has fantastic outdoor play area and a swimming pool. The hotel was clean and the staff nice and friendly and they do all they can to entertain the youngest gests. When we ware there they played movies on a big screen and had childrens disco, my kids loved it.
The hotel is close to a shoping mall, only takes about 5-10 minutes to walk there.
The only down side was that the room we stayed in was way to small for us, 2 adults and 2 children (we orderd the cheapest one), next time I will spend a little bit more to get a bigger room :)

The rooms are worn and torn now - carpets look dirty, there ar ecracked tiles in the bathroom. The windows not really sound proof and a the E18 main road passes just outside,

The bathroom was minimal small, one step only from the toilet to the shower. The mirror and basin was outside the bathrrom, just as you enter the hotelroom. I did not like this solution


Breakfasdt buffet good if you are early - not sufficiently re-filled in the later hour of breakfast
The hotel is located far away from the city, but near Dyreparken. Probably convenient for families visiting there
