Ernst is one of the oldest hotels in Kristiansand - and when you stay there, you'll see why.
After the redecoration a couple of years ago, however, it can be a challenge for people above the age of 50 to get to the reception desk, or the bar (or perhaps to find the way from the bar), without stumbling over something. The same goes for the rooms - or, anyhow, the room I stayed in. The reason is the young interior designer's perception of the amount of lighting needed for safely moving around.
Having said that, Ernst is a very nice hotel, with very friendly and service-minded staff, and with generally good food. The breakfast is fine, but not outstanding, and the lunches are roughly the same. Avoid cold fish-dishes from yesterday. The freshly made hot ones are very nice, though. The only thing I missed at the lunch buffet, was the créme caramel, which is normally is self-evident in decent Norwegian hotels (in which Ernst definitely otherwise belongs)
