    No air condition in the room. But had a fan so at least one got air shifting during night.

    Staff was great, food was great and hotel is near everything one needs. Shops, restaurants, seawater, beach and harbour.

    Rooms from road side need better ventilation system or air conditioning to be mounted. It's terrible hot and stuffy during sunny days. No hotel parking.

    Very helpful personel, no any problem with getting information, document printing or whatever... Tasty breakfast, nice dinner.

    Location, while not far from the absolute centre of the town, was a bit boring. No big problem, though, if you don't expect views from the room window.

    Cosy place, Good location, Friendly staff. No unpleasant surprises. It works. Good value for the price.

    Don't be fooled by offer of evening buffet

    poor offering at supper

    The hotel promises an inclusive evening meal which makes it look great value. In truth it amounts to some soup and a bit of green salad or cold pasta. When queried, the hotel says it is only meant to be a supper which it is barely that. Eating out in Arendal is very expensive and needs to be considered carefully. Hotel is fine though.

    Parking is 'on street' and you can pay the night before for the next day which is good and less expensive than the underground parking next to the hotel.

    My stay was excellent, it was particularly good value especially with the 'light dinner' which was included it suited me perfectly. It would be difficult to know what other options could have been offered for breakfast it was a veritable feast!

    perfect location, central to everything in the town. Outside temperature was 2-5 degrees during my visit but I did not have to turn the room heater on at all. I had an early flight back home so the staff prepared my breakfast at 2am on my departure day. Loved the look and finishes in the hotel, feels like you in a ship. A pleasant variety of cold and hot foods.
