Nice staff, good breakfast, but the room we got was not to our satisfaction. This can vary from room to room so it's not a general problem. We had to walk bent to get to the bed, and we could not watch TV from the bed.

This hotel is far from Kristiansand city, and located just next to Kristiansand dyrepark. This hotel is large with many rooms and free car park. However, you can observe wear and tear every where and the decorations is quite old and smelly. Don't ever try to have dinner in the hotel restaurant, the taste is bad and didn't know how...

Fantastic service and a very good buffet. The buffet menu changes theme each day! OK fitness room and a nice outdoor pool. The building is old, and there are no ventilation in the room, so it is neccecery to sleep with the window open. If you are unlucky and get a rom with windows towards the motorway, it could be...

After 20 years the hotel needs a renovation, but we have learnt that this will take place during the coming autumn and winter. The signs of wear have not bothered us, however. That is because of the very pleasant atmosphere of the hotel, the excellent food and the very good service and smiling kindness of all members of the staff...

Typical resort with walking distance to the famous Dyreparken. The hotel need to redecorate especially the rooms. I believe there are new rooms available and I will reccomend to book one of them. Breakfast was ok but this could maybe be due to an ongoing strike.

Not much to say. Food at the restaurant was the worse hotel food I ever had. We ate there all meals for 2 days. However staff at reception were remarkable. That is the only positive thing. Room is strangly built, with the sink outside of the bathroom, so after YOU use toilet you have to wash hands in the room...
