We have been staying at variousClarion Hotels throughout Norway and Sweden over the last month. We have now come to expect a different experience at each hotel--the Clarion Management (Nordic Choice Hotel Group) has apparently not come to grips with how to instill consistency across all there hotels. This Hotel was a real downer--not because of the rooms or location, but rather the surly, arrogant and generally unhelpful staff. Somehow, this Hotel Management is not aware of the fact that what makes a memorable stay is not the room, but rather the staff. This hotel advertises on site parking on their website. Yet, when we arrived mid- day on a Thursday no parking was available--All booked up they said. You need a reservation for parking apparently--but of course the website is silent on that fact. Our room, on the 2nd floor in the new section, was situated right above the restaurant area. Consequently we had the pleasure of smelling the leftover fish and seafood lunch buffet all night. Our room was improperly serviced before we arrived. No washcloths, no soap or shampoo. Also, you have to specifically request a robe--they are not provided otherwise (this was the only Clarion we stayed in that DID NOT provide a robe). All in all a poor showing for supposedly a good hotel. If it is the best the town has to offer, then skip this stop.

Room Tip: avoid rooms above restaurant area

Very good service and friendly people made this stay very pleasant. Good breakfast with freshly made omelet and pancakes, centrally located in city and short walk to the shops and the harbor. I can recommend this hotel if you are visiting Kristiansand.

This is a very nice hotel in the city centre of Kristiansand. I stayed here with my boyfriend in a standard room one night in connection with our trip to Denmark, as the hotel is located very close to the Color Line terminal.

The room was perhaps a bit small, but then again it was just a standard room.

The furnishing is very modern and the service is superb. Also, the breakfast in this hotel is excellent!

I will definitely stay here again for my next trip to Kristiansand, there’s no doubt about that. :-)

We had a really nice stay at Ernst hotel, and the breakfast was great. The only minus was a terrible air-condition and no windows to open (inboard room). Exept from this our overall review is that this is a great hotel.
