This is a review of the restaurant, not the hotel as a whole. The good restaurant experience is a combination of pleasant company, excellent food, great service and comfortable surroundings. Having ensured the first factor by being together, we can attest - after two visits - that the next three are very much present here. The service is pleasant, knowledgeable... More

The four of us enjoyed a delicious dinner. The wine recommendation was spot on. The food was amazing, we will never forget the lamb we had, so tender and tasty. The service was also excellent and the atmosphere was most pleasant. We have already agreed with our friends to return again soon.

We stayed four days during July 2013. We had a prepaid deal with breakfast and dinner and we were overwhelmed at the quality of the food (especially the dinner). Rooms are small and old-fashioned, but as the restaurant is so good, the bar with live-music so much fun and the hotel is set right next to the harbour and beach... More

We had dinner at Ballen restaurant and really enjoyed the setting, the atmosphere and attentif service and humour of the owner of the place, definitly a humorus character. We had fresh fish prepared in a very tasty manner; and although very pricey we highly recommend this special restaurant.

To be honest we were very disappointed and would have left had we not already pre-paid for the room. Many things to criticize - rooms was lousy as was the breakfast and such a shame they cannot be bothered to serve breakfast outdoor on the terrace - even during a spell of "tropical" weather. Also cleaning of rooms was rare... More

I spent 3 days in August in this hotel with my husband and must say that I was deeply disappointed - the worst hotel ever! We payed an over price for a very very small room under the Roof, we banged the head against the wall each time we wanted to sit up or get out of our beds, the... More

In 1991 I was at Ballen Badehotel for a lovely wedding. The food and the service was excellent and I recalled the ocean view from the dining room. When looking for a hotel on Samsø this summer, where I could stay with my family I decided to come back to Ballen Badehotel. Paying $200 (1600 DKK) per night, I expected... More

We came after dinner so we only orderd a nice rose wine and a lovely dessert. We tok the rest of the wine with us to the hotel lounge bar Emil B. There we enjoyed a fine concert with a duo playing easy listening pop music.
