Good location, friendly service but some weaknesses

An excellent location in central Kristiansand and a warm, helpful welcome when I checked in very late at night. Parking is potentially problematic (I had a colleague who arranged it for me at his hotel nearby) since there are few spaces in the car park. Room was basically sound - comfy bed, fair blackout and a small, but efficient shower-room. However... 1 the light in the shower-room is operated by a motion sensor which can't be switched off. Get up in the night to answer the call of nature, and not only is everywhere floodlit, it remains on for about 10 minutes. Very annoying and completely pointless 2 The hotel allegedly has some form of forced-air ventilation, but not air conditioning. With the windows open, that's mostly OK in Norway (not a country noted for excessive heat...), but my room fronted onto the main road which was noisy Housekeeping was extremely poor; I returned the second evening (of a 4 night stay) to find nothing at all had been done except to leave some cleaning spray in the bathroom. Next evening was better, but all the glasses had been taken away but not replaced no I had to scrounge a couple from the restaurant Breakfast is OK, but nothing special. Would I stay again? I wouldn't flat out refuse to, but it would certainly not be my first choice.

I have visited Ernst Hotel every summer for the last 20 years except for last year. Apart from the excellent central location of this hotel and it’s excellent breakfasts I found the staff always helpful and friendly. I was always remembered and greeted warmly. The general atmosphere now is much more commercial and aimed at saving money on services while trying to make as much money as possible from guests. Bring back some soul to this venerable hotel!

Nice to see this famous old hotel back to its former high standard, back to normal after Covid-9. Given a nice room on the third floor, well equipped, Friendly staff. The best was the restaurant. We ate dinner at the hotel every day and took the waiter's advice to choose - dish of the day "dagens". Superb food, real gourmet. Breakfast was also of a high standard. Nice location a few minutes walk from the city main street and a couple of minutes from the railway station and bus station. Will definitely be back at this hotel in the near future.
