Reviewed 8 July 2014

We stayed at the hotel for 1 night only but we got a very nice and cozy room with beautiful view on the fjord.
It was located in the "old" building which previously was a warehouse. It's completely renovated but you still can see the beams.
The staff is very friendly, breakfast nice with good choice.
We also had dinner: food was nice but service a bit slow.
The hotel has free parking and it' s located only few minutes on foot from the Sundboten dock.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the "old" wing of the hotel

As others have noted , this is not on the main town island. The ferry is £3 pp each way , and only 2 or 3 an hour. Apart from one bar/restaurant there is nothing else adjacent the hotel, so eating is an issue. The (undeniably sumptuous) dinner buffet is £40 with no other option. The breakfast buffet is also very generous and varied. Smart hip rooms, v friendly staff. Lovely deck area , but of course its " far north" , so very cold, but some folk do brazen it out in sun..

Dear Guest!

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us feedback reffering your stay at Thon Hotel kristiansund.

Yes, we are located on the opposite side of downtown, right on the waterfront. It takes about 12-15 minutes to walk to the center, or you can take a boat, called Sundbåt. This boat is historic, because it has been in operation since 1876.

Our restaurant serves A la Carte in the evenings, and only on special occasions we have buffet.
We are very pleased that you liked our Rooms, food and the view from the hotel.
We are also very happy that you liked the service we provided!

Thank you so much again, for giving us such nice review, and welcome back to Thon Hotel kristiansund!

The sun is finally here!

Kind regards

Stayed here on business early part of May 2014. Stayed here 3 times in 2014 each stay has been pleasant, rooms are very comfortable - if you can ask for the lovely room overlooking the water with old beams in the ceiling and picturesque views over the harbour.
Meals in the restaurant are very nice

Room Tip: Small room overlooking harbour is beautiful

A very excellent hotel. I did not get why there was no a/c plug in the bathroom, and the walls with the other room was pretty thin, but the rest was excellent. Especially the breakfast was outstanding.

a ok hotel in Kristiansund but they could utilized the location even better. the beds were a bit soft but definitely okay. A big minus because you have to take a boat to the citycenter even though the hotel stating is that the location is in the citycenter.

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking time to give us feedback. Hope you enjoyed your stay with us!

Our webpage says The hotel is beautifully situated at the Innlandet district, with a magnificent view over to Kristiansund city centre and has its own seashore. There is a nice boat called Sundbåt thats possibel to take for going to the senter, or by foot over the bridge it taks about 13 minutes.

Thank you again for giving us feed back and hope to welcome you back to Thon Hotel Kristiansund.

Stayed here one night arriving in the rain. Again!!!!!!
Small but beautiful room well decorated and a decent size bathroom
Very very comfy bed and linden as with most hotels in Norway
We had a window looking out the water and the hurtegruten came in and out a d lots of other ships
Have never seen a country with so many boats. Large and small
Reception was friendly efficient and professional
We had a meal in the restaurant for dinner and it was the best steak and vegs we have had in a long time - as well cooked and presentation asa five star restaurant with an amazing view
The hotel is across from the old town so it requires driving back or taking a ferry across for a meal in the evening as there is nothing near the hotel - with the rain we didn't bother and are glad we didn't as it was great and much more good value than a restaurant of equivalent quality
Breakfast again in the room with a lovely view was very fresh and lots of variety
Hotel has parking on site and easy to find by car
Where is all the traffic in Norway?
A very very nice hotel. We would definitely stay again

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a water view

stayed in this hotel for one night as part of a trip through fjordy Norway, and although the room itself was tiny, the view was absolutely incredible. We were in #439, directly on the water with a floor-to ceiling balcony/window that could be opened completely to allow water/ship views directly from bed. We slept fantastically with the sea breezes and enjoyed watching the local traffic go by.

As Thon hotels go (and I've stayed in quite a few) this is one of my favorites for the fascinating view directly from bed. Given that we were in a larger group and only stopping for the night, the apparently remote location wasn't an issue.

Breakfast is on the better side of basic for a Thon, with particularly nice water views.

Room Tip: 439 is tiny but has a fantastic view directly from the bed. Ceilings are low in the old building tho...
