    Sjøgløtt Hotell

    This low-key 15-room hotel in a historic building is run by a lovely young couple. The rooms are small, but have big windows and are well designed, and include extras unusual at this price, such as Nespresso machines. Breakfast, afternoon tea-time waffles and evening pizza and wine are served in an atmospheric basement, or you can relax in the sun in the cute courtyard.

    Scandic Kristiansand Bystranda

    This beachside place is big and brash, but very beautifully designed. It has a warm, textured and relaxed kind of style, and has all the facilities and extras you can expect in a hotel of this size. It's a wonderful spot for families with its beach, park and poolside position.

    Thon Hotel Wergeland

    It doesn't get any more central than this attractive hotel right next to the cathedral. It's all very smart and modern within, although a grand stairwell and a few other lovely old features remind you of the building's history. Rooms have dark hardwood floors and Nespresso machines.

    Clarion Hotel Ernst

    This Clarion is in one of the town's most stately buildings. Inside it's been done out in an urban, contemporary style with huge, pearl-string lampshades, gold and silver throne-like chairs, purple lighting and massive jet-black bedheads.

    Hotel Q42

    This hotel is part of a church conference centre, so doesn't possess as much of a holiday vibe as some of the others in town. The 11 junior suites and suites here are beautifully furnished, calm, spacious and stylish.

    Yess Hotel

    This good-value, 'back-to-basics' hotel chain steps in when B&Bs are in short supply. It does have a corporate sunniness that can be grating, but rooms are pleasant, with wall-to-wall photographs of trees, comfortable beds and pristine bathrooms.
