Everything, breakfast, dinner, room, fast free wifi access, cleanliness, friendliness of staff. Do not have a bad word to say. Would love to visit again.
I was very happy, so nothing to add.
Location, atmosphere, views, included breakfast, friendly staff, historic pictures, the ability to blend into the town physically, coziness, etc., etc.!
No free parking for guests.
Lovely rooms, helpful and polite staff. Breakfast ok. Waiters at the basement restaurant is FANTASTIC and so was the Food!!!
lack of parking. should be free of charge for paying customers
Rooms are nicely furnished and the breakfast is good.
Don't book unless you can get a guareentee that you won't get an internally facing room – they are airless, lightless and the noise from the lobby and reception can't be shut out, even with the windows closed (and in my case this went on to 1am). They are totally unacceptable.
Nice place to stay. Great breakfast buffet.
From the descrition parking shouldn't be a problem - but parking was full. Alternative parking in front of the hotel cost you a fortune. Not recommended if you travel by car.
The atmosphere is cosy, and the location is fine.
The receptionist was rather unprofessional, almost impertinent and not service minded at all. For instance; I asked her to show me a particular place on the local town map. She sighed and answered, "Oh, I will have to look for it, then?" to which I answered "Yes, of course you will have to look for it. That's why I am asking for your assistance". She never bothered to look, and I found it myself. I told her that I found it, and she completely ignored by comment. Her attitude in general was not what we expect from a girl at the front desk.
Location, view from the room, very friendly staff, good breakfast.
Beautiful old fashioned hotel near the idyllic Grimstad harbour. Even the cold Norwegian weather couldn't detract from the pleasures of a walk along the quayside. The hotel food is excellent, the room was well appointed.
I was sorry to leave and look forward to returning.
Exceptional staff, amazing breakfast, beautiful location, deluxe room was wonderful.
No heated pool or complimentary helicopter ride to work.
Grimstad is a small and very cosy town with white wooden houses. Rica hotel is straight in the center. Small shops and cafes are around the hotel. Staff was very friendly, everyone speaks english. Tasty breakfast with good variety. Room was very clean but small. However the size is ok for business traveling alone. Hotel accepts late check out. Downstairs the hotel there's restaurant which gives 15% discount to the hotel guests but still expensive even with the discount. Generally all was fine.
