    Quick getaway

    Generally the hotel was good with a very Clean and comfortable room. The staff was also friendly and hard working. My only complaint is that residents were allowed to go to the buffet and serve themselves. They did have a separate buffet were someone was safely serving you. I did ask one of the workers who has mentioned that they used to serve people and not let them touch the buffet but the government had dropped that requirement and therefore they didn’t feel the need to serve people. I simply do not feel that a proud hotel manager should do the “bare minimum” to protect the residents!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We loved staying here. There is a lot of old artwork and painting that has been restored - especially the grand staircase. It's beautiful inside and in a central location. We had a last minute layover in Kristiansand and they were more than accomodating with our last minute needs. The front desk was especially friendly and helpful. We will certainly stay here on a return trip to Kristiansand.

    This is a remarkable historic hotel that has been renovated to a very high standard. The interior design (furniture/decoration etc) is highly contemporary but does not detract in any way from the sense of being in a historic building.

    It was a shame about the current work outside making access more difficult. Nice quiet rooms. Pillows not very comfortable.

  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel as such makes a good impression and the staff is wonderful and very helpful. The breakfast is great and will definitely satisfy you with a great choice. However, our family room was small and very cramped and not ventilated enough due to a defective window, which was not fixed upon request. Our room was only cleaned once during the entire stay, which was very disappointing, we had to get our own towels and make our own beds (I would expect someone to do that once I am paying for it) The gym was also much smaller than I expected with very little equipment. Furthermore there where no ashtrays in front of the hotel which left a mess on the floor at the entrance.

    Lighting is very dark in bathroom and room overall. On site parking was sold out so had to go a few blocks down and pay more than stated. Room needed to be cleaned (dirty glass, hair on tub, tissue behind nightstand), needs vacuuming) The mattress pad continued to slip off every time you moved. The hotel was fine and staff were very nice but overall prob wouldn’t stay there again.
