I have stayed here a few times now, and i like the hotel. The room is good sizes and the breakfast is ok. The beds are also OK and it is very close to the city center. Last time i visited Arendal the Hotel was full so i had to book another, but i will come back here next time.

Arendal is a small town in South Norway located on the banks of the see. The place is quite with full of serenity and beautiful view. The hotel is located quite near the center of town and almost everything is in walking distance.
Rooms comfortable with enough space to move around. Big comfortable table with enough sockets and of course free WiFi (as it is standard today in most hotels of this level) provides an adequate environment for the business traveler.
Bathroom is fair and comfortable; all equipment is clean and functioning.
Breakfast was great. All the necessary ingredients (eggs, cheese, fresh vegetables, fruit and more) and a lot of emphasis on healthy food.
Service of staff was with warm welcome. I didn’t need them too much but when ever did they were very pleasant and cooperative.
All in all nice and recommended.

Hotel is located on the water a short walk from the town center. Parking in the area is a problem because you must pay as you go. The parking machine in front of the hotel rejected three of my American credit cards. The hotel has limited parking underneath it. However the spaces are at least 25 cm (10 inches) too narrow for anything but the smallest cars.
Breakfast is excellent with a wide choice of hot and cold foods. We ate dinner at their restaurant one night. The food, when it finally arrived, was good. We were told there had been a "mistake in the kitchen" and, as a result, our main courses came out more than an hour after our appetizers. As compensation we were given free desserts. Not acceptable.
For some reason wash cloths are not provided in the rooms. Otherwise the rooms are fine and properly cleaned.
The area around the elevator (lift) has a terrible chemical smell in the air that is quite cloying.
Probably would not stay there again.

Hello Peter

Thank you for this review of your stay at our hotel.
We have limitied parkingspace connected to the hotel. In total we have 25 parkingspaces. There are many parkingplaces around the hotel. In the places outside the hotel and on the pier it is free to park from 16:00 - 08:00. In the parkinghouse they charge 150,- for 24 hours.
Good to hear that you injoyed the breakfast with its wide variety of choices.
I am sorry to hear about the incident and long waitingtime in the restaurant. You should not have to wait one hour for the main course.

I hope you will give us another chance at your next stay i Arendal.

We stayed for one night.
First the bad things: the room was booked for two-three persons (baby), but it was only prepered for one person (bed and towels). Hotelparking was small and full. BUT the staff came with towels and offered to make the bed for two immediately when I told the frontdesk about the "situation". Parking was also solwed with google maps - public parking just around the corner (free for the weekend).
The room was nice with a wiev over the marina. Kettle in the room and minibar. The breakfast was really nice, and the breakfastroom was tidy and easy to get an overwiev, and nice atmosphere.
Restaurant at the hotel and plenty around the corner.
Thanks for a nice stay!

Hello

I am sorry to hear that your room not was prepared according to your reservation. We should have had this under control.
I am glad that the receptionist solved this quickly and that you found a place to park. We have 25 places for carparking in the hotel and public parking nearby.

We are newly renovated and appreciate your feedback regarding the room, breakfastroom and restaurant.

Welcome back the next time you visit Arendal.

Mvh
Atle W
