Was in town for business nearby. Used to live in town 15 years ago and this hotel was known to be preferred. As it turned out the charm was still there, breakfast was plentiful and the staff friendly. Chose city view combined with sea view with the bay from the room. I like Arendal!

This is another of the very good hotels in the Clarion range. Stayed only one night and did not have time to use the restaurant, except for a glass of wine in the outdoor bar area. Beautiful area, overviewing the sea and the islands outside Arendal. Summer is of course the best time for a visit, but I'm sure a...

A very charmful place in the middle of the Arendal harbour, Nice breakfast and very friendly staff. Clean rooms and fast service, Perfect! The garage is very narrow, not clean (extremely dirty) and not suited for large vans or SUV's. The bed was really hard and terrible, must be changed if sleep is important.

An quite old, but refreshed hotel with welcoming and friendly service, grate view from the room and proximity to Arendals famous Pollen. Comfortable beds and rooms, but somewhat cowded With four peopla (two adults, two children) in a De Luxe room. Too bad the restaurant was not open during Our short stay. GREAT breakfast!

Stayed one night while on a car trip. Very central location in Arendal, can't beat the view towards the water. High standard room, good bed. Superior breakfast - both the selection of food and the view.
