I had a "business" room with view over to the train station/bus station/ferries. The room looked great, although it seems it was from the '90s and there were some stains and spots here and there.

This hotel needs desperately renovation! The standard are late 1980. No bar or restaurant, boring breakfast and rooms with no style. The positive thing is that there is few guest there is good space at the parking-lot:)

A fine hotel for purpose, principally conferences. Good food in the restaurant, especially excellent breakfast buffet. Good location, lots of room. Recommended,e specially by comparison to the spartan competition in Kristiansand, which is a wonderful place to visit and return. Terrific university, wonderful people in Kristiansand.

Really enjoyed my stay here... Great location and awesome staff. It is getting a little old and needs a referb (which I believe is imminent) but still clean and pleasant. I would recommend this to anyone.

We attended a handball tournament. We got a good offer and stayed here. Nothing to complain about. Good breakfast and service. Clean rooms that look old fashion but other than that all is ok. Good value
