Everything, from the location to Cécile's friendly welcome, from the delightful room to the fantastic breakfast, was absolutely perfect. We could not have asked for more, and the French-Dutch-Danish Cécile and her Danish husband Peder are to be congratulated for running such an utterly lovely b&b. Merci beaucoup, mange tak and hartelijk bedankt!

I very much enjoyed my short stay at the Old Chestnut Tree in Silkeborg and can recommend it when staying in Silkeborg. The B&B is 5 minutes walking distance to the Train Station and 5 to 10 minutes walking to the city centre. The rooms are very comfortable and cosy with wifi everywhere in the building. Breakfast was delicious. I... More

It struck me that Cécile's room is the room of a seasoned traveller. Someone who, like myself, has lived through countless hotel rooms with all those thousands of things that may - and do - go wrong from sprinkler heads to payments and breakfast timings. At The Old Chestnut Tree nothing goes wrong because Cécile already thought of it. What... More

Fantastically comfortable and welcoming lovely house rather and a B and B. Handily located for the twin of Silkeborg with its old centre and lake / river location. The hosts Cecile and Peder have become friends and are a lovely couple with a great sense of humour. We hope to stay again very soon.

Very nice, clean and friendly B&B with excellent breakfast. It is placed in a very nice location with an app. 5-10 min. walk to the town center, and with access to a lovely garden. Location and overall rating would have been excellent if it had been closer to the water.

Thank you so much, Cecile for our best stay in Denmark summer of 2014! A more friendly, helpful and charming hostess will be hard to find. The rooms and bathroom were so delicate, stylish and lovely that we just wanted to stay in. There were complementary bathroom articles and coffee, sodas and chocolates were included in the price (!)

We were thrilled with this accommodation. Cecile, our hostess, was charming and so helpful with tips on where to go and local restaurants. The bed was extremely comfortable, a coffee machine was provided with all types of coffee, tea as well and also soft drinks and water for free - never had this before. We even had to ask Cecile...

Everything was good or better than good :o) Good location with off-road parking, and handy for a pleasant riverside stroll to the town bars and cafes. Fine building and well-appointed rooms. Excellent hosts and a lovely breakfast. What more could we want? Well some quality beer from a good microbrewery would go down well. Guess what, Silkeborg's cafes came up... More
