Stayed two times at the Reef within the space of four days. Rooms are terrible, definitely not up to par with normal Scandic standard. It is evident that the hotel makes money out of luring visitors to the adventure bath (which in fact is quite nice) but leaving the rooms heavily overpriced without any value. First room we got had... More

Lets say this is not a four star hotel but in saying that this hotel does have some good points. Location is close to the ferry terminals that go from Denmark to Sweden and we used it as a one night stay for that reason. The hotel is set up for families with a indoor water slide which goes into... More

We had a nice weekend get-away with our kids. Breakfast buffet was great and our room was okay. Our kids enjoyed the extensive indoor waterpark, with a lot of variations. I liked the animated thunder and moonsun rain :)

Rooms are functional and clean but are small with dated decor. Great pool area. Good choice of breakfast. Don,t stay here if you want a quiet hotel. we were awoken by screaming children running up and down the corridors. Also there is poor sound isolation between rooms.

We visited the hotel with our two year old son and were very pleased with the hotel's water park. There were opportunities to swim both outdoors and indoors and several saunas. The water park was also very child friendly with a children's section. Breakfast was excellent, with a good selection of both hot and cold dishes. There were also a... More

If you have kids this hotel is fantastic since the indoor Water playground with waterslides keep them busy all day. I often use this hotel for business travelling and when I arrive after been driving many hours on the road it is very relaxing to jump into a hot spa bath letting the bubbles loosen up all your tensions.

We visited the reef during the day without staying over at the hotel. It was a christmas gift to my kids. We arrived with the ferry and the reef is only a short walk from the ferries. The indoor reef was really impressive at first sight. The chaning rooms and showers are nice and clean as well. Lot's of hot... More

What a Hotel…. The 4 of us had a family room (my kids 10 and 8, my wife and myself) the room was a typical Scandic Hotel style and quite compact, 2 of the 4 beds where wall mounted, which the kids loved. I have to say however that I was glad that I am the only one in the... More
