Thon Hotel Kristiansund

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My wife and I stayed here for a night at the end of a week's driving holiday before flying back to Oslo. It was a memorable experience. We got a ground floor room which was like a room on stilts over the water giving an impression of being in the cabin of a cruise ship floating on the sea. Small room though, but adequate for a night. The views over the water overlooking the main town were compensation enough. The dining room too had great views of the bridge and the waters and the service was especially friendly with good food. Just like in most Thon hotels, this hotel too scored on friendly staff, clean rooms and great coffee making for a very pleasant stay. There's free car parking within the hotel premises too. The location seemed fine with a 15 minute drive to the airport.

A comfortable hotel with nice rooms. It is situated right on the waterfront on Innlandet island. The view from the dining room across the water is very pleasant and the food is very good. I stayed in a room in the old part of the hotel that was once used for storing fish - the smell has long gone!

Had a room facing the sea. Nice big windows that could open out. Room was small , bed is almost next to the window so it is like sleeping next to the sea, quite an unusual feeling. Could watch the seagulls flying around from room window. Good breakfast spread. Friendly staff, nice quiet location in the old town area.

we drove from all the fjords here to then fly out next day to Lofoten islands. Interior of hotel and rooms seems new & up to date. Rooms are nice and Very modern with more than you can ask for. $200USD seemed like the avg price for a good stay in norway, but this was better than the other places we had paid that price. Nice beds, TV, carpet & lighting, Bathroom was avg size but great shower pressure. We went to the only Indian restaurant in this city, IT WAS THE HIGHLIGHT called "guru taste of india". Great city Good hotel, wont be disappointed.

Definetly the best hotel in Kristiansund, not too big with lovely rooms, excellent restaurant and very nice service. The only drawback it is quite a distance from the city center, restaurants and shops. But if you are tiered of rush and loud hotels, this is the one! Nearby there is a Dodeladen Cafe and sundbåten (water tram) which will take you to city center in 15 min - a worthy expierience. The hotel is literally placed on water, most of the rooms have amazing view on the bay.

Nice position at the docks. Small room but comfortable. Very nice and kind staff. The food is also good, and especially breakfast has a very wide selection of tasty food. I would come back here. The distance from the airport is not that long and you can get there in 20 minutes drive.

Super friendly staff with good knowledge. The hotel is located on the inmost island of kristiansund so there is a 15 minute walk to the centre but that makes it nice and quiet. The restaurant is located right next to the fjord,with lovely view of the bridge and ththe boat yard. The hotel is in old warehouses and th lovely beams give a very warm and informal feeling . The furniture is all modern and very comfortable.

We spent one night in this hotel during our travels in Norway. Our room was just like the one depicted above, and it was was terrific. We loved hanging right over the water watching the boat traffic. Before checking in we explored a bit of the town on the other side of the harbour, and quite frankly didn't find it very appealing. Of course our feeling was influenced by truly awful, grey and rainy weather. So we were very pleased to hole up in our comfortable and attractive little room for the evening. We would have loved to take advantage of the hotel's water-front patio, but the weather made that a non-starter. Everything was very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. (I sometimes wonder if people posting negative reviews about a hotel like this have stayed in the same place!) We didn't travel in the high season so were lucky enough to get a parking space immediately outside the hotel, which was particularly appreciated because of the rain. We would highly recommend this hotel, particularly if you book a room such as ours.

Love this hotel situated just by the bay. It's in a quiet area where you can see some of the ships docked around the waters. Room is superbly equipped and there's English Premier League on the TV as well!

I've visited the hotel with my boyfriend on September 2016. Our room was in the old part of the hotel that is very characteristic: the building is a stilt house on the water , and inside you can still see the old beams , that I think are still part of the building bearing, and you can still smell the wood. This gives a historical feature to the hotel together with the pictures of the old times hanged on the walls that shows fishermen at work. Our room's window was just in front of the big bridge under which passes the Hurtigruten and, luckily, we saw it! Wonderful! Our room was very big, with a sofa, an armchair, a desk and a chair: it seemed to have a living room with plus the bed, we liked it so much! Breakfast: not so big but with all te necessary for a good start of the day, bread, juices, salt selection and much more. Position: well located, easy to find, 5 minutes from the center of the city with the car. The parking has not so much space. The only negative point is that walls are very thin and we could hear the TV of the next room very well. A part from this it's absolutely recommended!
