I stayed in one of the superior rooms with a view of the fjord.

The rooms are showing a bit of their age, but they are classy and comfortable.

I guess it's a bit of a summer hotel, I was there in December and the hotel didn't make a lasting impression.

Sadly I didn't get the chance to try the breakfast.

Room Tip: Get a room with a fjord view

Hello Erlend L

Thank you for your review of our hotel.

In December we started a renovation of the 60 rooms in the oldest part of the hotel. These rooms were finished late January and are now top, up to date rooms.

I hope you wish to return to Arendal and visit our newly renovated hotel. Arendal is amazing in the summer.

Best Regards
Atle W

I really enjoyed this stay, Even though I am not a regular, I was treated like one. I really enjoyed the new menu and I was pleased by a friendly staff. If I were to visit Arendal again this would be the first choice!

Located by the beautiful Arendal harbour. Newly renovated bath room, but the room needs an update. Would prefer hardwood flooring instead of carpets. Great breakfast with a view to die for. Good service from staff.

The hotel is very central, located on the boardwalk. I had a room with a wonderful view from the corner window and a lot of fresh air.
The room size was quite spacey, also had a good shower.
The breakfast was rich and very tasty.
Looking forward to my next stay.

Nice location. New, modern, clean rooms. Excellent breakfast with omelette made on the spot. Not the cheapest in town but money well spent. Suggest to pay a few NOK more a get a room with sea view. Only comment: Funny odor in the stairs, was not able to recognize it, but no odor anywhere else.
