When traveling Norway, we made the experience that hotel prices in the South are even higher than elsewhere in the country. So we decided to look a little bit away from the coast.
The Birkeland Hotell in Birkenes is a nice place, appr. 15min from Lindeness and 30min from Kristiansand. With a price for a double bed room of 1.095 NOK (early June) it is worth traveling the extra Kilometers.
Birkeland / Birkenes is a quiet small town. The hotel is build in a motel-type style, which means you park your car right in front of the rooms. Parking and rooms are on the back side, away from the street. The rooms are of a good size, have modern furniture and come equipped with TV, water cooker, a good fridge and fast free WLAN. Dinner can be had a two places right beside the hotel, of which we recommend the Chinese restaurant on the opposite side of the road.
Birkeland Hotell is highly recommended when you travel southern Norway by car.More
