2/10 Poor

Fik en lejlighed ( havde booket et værelse) på øverste etage med utroligt dårlige adgangsforhold. Grundet skråvægge slog vi konstant hovederne. Sengene var alt alt for bløde, og der skulle kravles til inderste seng.

Hyggelig opphold og strålende frokost
Vi kom til Grimstad i egen bil og trøbla litt med finne veien fram. Men når vi først var framme, ble vi godt mottatt. Rommet var romslig og greit. Og frokosten må være Sørlandets beste!

Romstadard og pris bør nok samsvare og ikkje holde samme nivå som standarder der alt hokder topp nivå. 1900 pr dobbeltrom der sluken i dusjen var tett og badet ellers ikkje hadde standard til slik pris. Dette uavhengig av topp sesong . Ellers topp seng, mat og betjening.
