5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

Great location in downtown Kristiansand, convenient parking, stylish interior and comfy rooms, excellent breakfast buffet and nice play area for the children right next to the restaurant area. Very service minded and friendly personell. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Kristiansand, and will definetely choose it again myself!

I went to Kristiansand to see the Backstreet Boys. The location was the most important thing, and it was superb! Close proximity to everything. The room was nice and the service great. Will visit again!

A clean hotel. I especially liked the spa and relax area, I had a good workout in the morning. As usual the kitchen staff didn't know the differense between lactose and milkprotein allergy, so it was good that we had brought our own milkfree margarine.

Dear Christine!

Thank you for your feedback. And we will use it to improve, you are right about our knowledge about lactose. We will educate our staff about that. I am glad you liked the hotel otherwise.

We are a family of 4, and was staying for three nights in Kristiansand. The reception was good, and the room was of good standard and tidy/clean. The breakfast was very good. The only complaint from my side was that the bar was out of key ingredients to make cocktails/long drinks. A great hotel in the center of Kristiansand.

Easy and fast check in & out. Nice rooms with everything you need. The bed is like no other. You will sleep like a baby, and there is no noize from areas around the hotel. The amazing breakfast will make sure you will fell like a king.

Hotel location walking distance to train and bus station, fish market, shopping, restaurants, harbor, etc. very convenient. Breakfast is a huge spread including omelet and pancake/waffle bar and fresh ground coffee machine which also dispensed lattes, espressos, and cappuccinos. The lobby decor is exotic and modern, but somewhat elaborate and gaudy; however, I never judge a hotel by their lobby. The spa included steam and dry heat saunas and was very popular and nicely appointed. Fitness room is combined with spa area so can get a little warm. Fitness equipment is high quality brand. They did not have a large variety of free weights. We got a superior room which was large enough for our needs with a large bathroom (shower, no tub). Shampoo, hair conditioner, and hand lotion supplied, but not replenished daily. Good hanging closet space but no shelves or drawers to store other items. Room faced the enclosed atrium and was a little dark, so view was to other rooms. Staff welcoming and friendly.

Room Tip: Superior room had enough room to comfortably store a bicycle, folding bicycle, and 2 large luggage.

Great location, beautiful rooms with a really good mattress, great breakfast buffet, Beautifully decorated - couldn't be more satisfied! ...But parking in Kristiansand is quite a challenge, but this is not the hotel's fault... 5 points!
