I remeber this hotel before the Thon group bougth it. the hotel was decent and medicre. After new painting and renewal this hotel is cosy and charming. The breakfast was excellent. The only negative aspect was very slow reception service.

This was the beginning of our holiday. Very nice and polite staff in the reception. The room was nice and quiet. Best breakfast EVER ! The evening buffet is also to recommend. Easy to find and location is good for whatever you want.

Nicely recently refurbished hotel in centre of Arendal. Service minded staff and great breakfast. Really comfortable beds and lovely decor.But the evening meal was not a meal. In fact it was indeterminable. Just some kind on non-descriptive fill. It was not worthy of this hotel. I would suggest they either drop the evening meal concept, or if they have to do it based on the same concept at Nordic Choice, at least make it edible. This brings down the overall rating of the hotel that was superb.

Dear Peter B.

Thank you very much for taking your time to give us this review.
We wish to develope our product and service, and we do that the best bylistening to our guests, so thank you giving us your feedback and rating on the evening meal.
The idea behind having this free evening meal, was to have a small light offer for the guests who did not want to go for dinner in the city , or as "kveldsmat" the typical Norweegian small dish, something small to eat before going to bed. We wish of course that the menu and the food should be delicate, so I will take this feed back with me.

Thank you for the 4 star- for these I am very grateful.

I hope we will see you another time when you are in Arendal.

With Kind regard

The room and toilet was a bit small but very clean, comfortable bed. Breakfast on the 6th floor was delicious with many choices of food. Receptionist staffs were all very friendly and supportable. Hotel location was great, walking distances to most of the interesting places of the small city.

I've stayed at Thon Hotel in Arendal several times and like it for it's central location, friendly service and good breakfast. This time I arrived in a newly renovated hotel. The room was great, the breakfast area was moved from the basement to 6th floor with a big terrace with a fantastic view. The restaurant has an open kitchen where the chefs are preparing the breakfast in front of you. The selection is just amazing - fresh fruits, fresh orange juice made in front of you, eggs, salmon, meat, omelets, pancakes, rich choice of breads, cheese in many variations etc. etc. This is the best breakfast I have had in an hotel for years - if ever. AND; they even offer an evening buffet between 18.00 and 21.00!

This is the best choice if you need an hotel in Arendal. This is the first time I was happy that I had to stay two nights in an hotel - I was looking forward to the evening buffet and the breakfast next morning!
