“A motel!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Disagree strongly by the critical comments given here. The motel modern, comprises of 4 or 5 buildings, located on a lane adjacent to the highway to/from Aarhus. I hada modest but clean and fairly sized, with a large bath, 2nd floor in the 4th building.
I arrived at 2am and the staff was helpful and quick. Checked out the next day at 6:30am and the breakfast was already on the table, egg and bacon hot and in abundance. The breakfast was otherwise more generous than what is normal in Denmark and Germany at this type of establishment.
And - the price was 1/2 of anything remotely similar in the area; from the ferry at Grenaa to Skanderborg.
It is a motel, not a 5 star hotel. Thus don't expect anything but. That said, it is a good motel as far as I am concerned.

Room Tip: I was happy with 2nd floor in building no. 4. Any better or worse than others, I have no idea. Park...

Yack!
Rooms were awful, dirty and full of spiders. It have never been as awful to take a shower than there, floor was disgusting and full of dirt and the toilet smelled just like [--].
Stay away if possible!

Stayed during a business visit. This is not a very nice hotel. Reception staff was indifferent and in no way service-minded. And the rooms are really really sad. Worn and dirty. If you are a light sleeper, you may be disturbed by highway noise. Breakfast was nothing special. There are so many other and much better options in the Aarhus area, so I suggest you stay away from this one.

I wish I could be more glowing in my review, but I simply can't.

Got a decent rate for the hotel on a travel site, paying $91 total for a single room, which is a good price for Copenhagen, but seems rather steep for a motel out in the hinterlands. Still, this is Denmark, where prices make very little sense, so I considered myself lucky.

The front desk personnel I met were among the kindest front desk people one could expect to meet, particularly in a country where other reviewers have often commented on the rather taciturn nature of employees.

The room itself was small and unfortunately there were some serious problems with cleanliness! The shower tiles were sprayed with mud or maybe black mold, which was pretty disgusting. Moreover, the shower was a typical Danish affair--2 centimeters lowered floor, cloth fabric curtain, and no way of preventing the water from flooding the rest of the bathroom.

The motel has chosen to conserve resources (good for them!) by installing Lux soap dispensers, and unfortunately Kimberly Clark paper products. This is the first hotel I've ever experienced which stocks the bathrooms with those paper squares found normally at train stations. I believe a simple IKEA toilet paper holder would have been a cheaper and more pleasant alternative.

The television didn't work properly and only had 5 stations. Weirdly they were missing DR2, one of the standard stations, but they had DR1.

Instead of glasses in the bathroom, guests received 2 very flimsy white plastic cups. Kimberly Clark's famous product, Kleenex, were absent from the room, despite being represented by their institutional toilet paper squares.

Breakfast buffet was passable, but not outstanding, and the scrambled eggs were extremely salty.

I was pleasantly surprised by how comfy the soft mattress ended up being, so a point in the motel's favor.

Overall this was a disappointing experience. One would hope for more attention to little details of comfort and hygiene, and slightly more value for the money. Having stayed in the motel annex, I'm not sure whether or not a room in the main building would have been a bit nicer.

I didn't try the restaurant, however the menu looked very basic and expensive--typical Danish entrees cost 199-300 kroner which seemed rather steep.
