This hotel tries to be very fancy, but that is only on the surface. Behind the facade it is just an ordinary hotel. Nothing wrong with that; comfortable room, nice food, quite good facilities for conferences, all in all good, just a bit boring.

Recently refurbished and now very trendy, with quirky decor. Rooms are good, nice bar and copious selection at the breakfast buffet. Good location near the port. Very good value with reasonable pricing. Live band some nights in the lobby, so be careful if you want a quiet room. Recommended.

We have stayed in a lot of different hotels in Kristiansand over the years, and I think this is my new favorite. Very cool interior, the lobby in particular is memorable. Also one of the best hotel breakfasts I've eaten. We stayed in a "family room", and it had a very spacious bathroom. Some concerns though: 1. Shower curtain was...

I visited the hotel during a business trip to Kristiansand in September 2016. The hotel is modern with a flashy lobby and restaurant. Great breakast! Free wi-fi but requires signing in using credentials. My room was tiny but clean.

I had my doubts after reading the reviews on line but decided to give it a try anyways. My advice is to just go elsewhere. We asked for the most expensive room in the hotel. By Norwegian standards, it was large. But, it was dark inside, cold and next to a nightclub blasting music all night. Not exactly what you...

Had a short business stay and enjoyed the hotelbreakfast but also the bed with really good pillows. Had a friendly welcome eventhough it was way past midnight. I would reccomend this hotel and their location in the middle of the city center.

This hotel is perfectly located in Kristiansand. We stayed there for summer vacation, two adult and two children. The hotel is right in the city, and in walking distance from the sea, with very nice surroundings. Lots of restaurants right outside the doorstep, and the cinema is just around the corner. Nice breakfast with something for everyone. What makes it...

Stayed at the Clarion Hotel Ernst for 4 nights in August.
