Like the room and the feeling to see animals and joy for children to see "Sabeltan" and good Food and drinks, not the hole menu avalable. Clean rooms and like that the rooms have naming as the animals in the zoo insde

This is an extra ordinary venue a childs paradise and even for adults that have or have had children then you can only be impressed with this venue, anything goes as far as children are concerned, providing they do not hurt themselves or others then there are no strict rules, a real fun place and adventure park.
for the adults then it is serviced by a genuinely great hotel, well managed great staff and excellent cuisine, ticks all the boxes.

Room Tip: Excellent buffet lunch

Nice hotell for families, close to Zoo. For conferences no, only a samll bar. Room was also nice for families with two extra beds for kids. Food was ok, but the same every day - so they dont live up to the good food Rica are known for.

Hei Hersdal og tusen takk for at du tok oss tid til å gi oss en tilbakemelding.
Vi bruker alle våre tilbakemeldinger aktivt i vår jakt etter forbedringsområder.
Gleder meg at du var fornøyd med hotellet men er på ingen måte fornøyd med at du synes maten var ok. Vi har et mantra her på huset som sier « godt nok er egentlig ikke bra». Når du som konferansegjest bor hos oss over flere dager skal du på ingen måte sitte igjen med en opplevelse av å få servert den samme maten. Tar med din tilbakemelding internt så håper jeg at vi går fra « ok til meget bra» neste gang du besøker oss.

Hjertelig velkommen tilbake til Rica Dyreparken Hotel

Whith a snow hazard coming up now in media january, and a most needed place to have strategy conference. This hotel was an excellent place to be. Especially as it was needed to be a place on the county border between the two largest cities in southern Norway. Nice accommodations, good conference facilities for our group of 15 people an tasteful meals served with smiles:-)

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the Leisure Park. Nice view and quite.

An ordinary ok Rica hotel. Zoo Theme and exciting room pulls up. Unfortunately, the food here pulls down.
Should I stay here with my kids the accommodation would be nice close to the zoo, but I'd gone somewhere else for dinner. The famous Rica breakfast is no where near the other Rica Hotels. This hotel is living on it's location close to the zoo. I would spend the additional money and stay at Abra og other hotels.

I am a Rica member, and when I Arrived the Upgraded me for free to a better Room, for free,
The Beds in the superior Rooms are super good.

I was here during Low season, so I can not say how this hotel runs during High season at Summer time.

And I also went for this Hotel because they have a big Parking area, many hotels in the City don't have Parking place.

Room Tip: Superior room is good value.
