Nice hotel and very friendly staff. Extremely perfect for families with children:) Very short distance to shopping, animal park just across the street, adventure/pirate park, horse trot racingtrack and not that far from the city.

Also there...

A very unplanned trip to Kristiansand took us to this hotel because of membership discounts, and it's proximity to the zoo. The room wasn't bad, didn't enjoy hitting my head in the roof thing that came down in the middle of it, but it was clean, and the bathroom was quite nice, with good water pressure in the shower.

The reception responded that if I wanted, they could change my booking from two deluxe rooms to four standard rooms, made into one room with a double bed and one with bunkbeds - all...

Too much trouble - booking trouble, small room, bad cleaning, they did not change sheets every day. Understaffed restaurant and no good a-la-carte offering. But good buffet food. Elevator outage every day, keycard stopped working a day too early... But excellent kids playground and disco :)

Our room was dusty, dead mosquitos and dirt in the minibar, different type of hair in the bath-tub, dirty bathtub, hairpins on the floor, a lot of dust and an old cocacola box under the bed. And the carpet... Besides that, the hotel was great for children.
