I have been staying at this hotel since 1991 - not so long after it first opened. This has always been my favourite hotel in Arendal and is situated overlooking the lake. I always stay in a lake facing room as the view is absolutely delightful. You can watch the ferry come and go or look at the other side...

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and I definitely suggest the double room upgrade with a view of the water. My room was in the old wing with each room named after something nautical. The room was a decent size but the view was amazing. The little boat would pull up every few hours and...

This hotel is tidy has a nice staff, great breakfast and a wonderful view onto the Tromöysundet. Even for holiday, I would come here to explore the nice countryside. The connection to Kjevik (Kristiansand) Airport is good by taxi, with a bus it needs a while, but is pricely quite competitive.

Perfectly located close to everything, but with beautiful view from the room over river with harbor and islands. Very nice hotel in the old wooden style from outside, but equipped with all you need; - even a garage is underneath.

The hotel is at the seaside and from the room, we can have the full sea view. I was there on a sunny day and the sea and mountains view was terrific. The hotel also has a gym for the visitors which is across the street.
