Small, but enjoyable rooms. Good beds and well working internet connections. Very nice and friendly staff. Good breakfast and ok dinner in the restaurant. Just 100 meters walk and you can find their main street with lot of shops there. Pool area seems to be fantastic, unfortunately I´ve visited there only by business reasons and never had time to try... More

I went here again under the same circumstances as the last time, and it was more or less the same experience. Breakfast very good, rooms could be better and the waterpark is great fun. They should get some small fridges in each room, and the shower doors leaks, so water is all over the floor. The bathroom really needs a... More

Travelling with our elderly mothers we got a room near the elevator. The staff at the front desk was nice. The rooms didn't have fridges, tea-making facilities, toiletries, fan, ac etc. I'm sure it is good for families with small children because of the spa and even our mothers enjoyed the hot pool in the evening. For a romantic getaway... More

This was our second trip to this place, and it was as nice as the first one. To get right to the point: What's special about the hotel is that it is also a water park. Once you're checked in to your room, you take the lift back down past the reception floor and get directly to the water park... More

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.
