“Being thoughtfully renovated into a real winner for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

My family, with our three young girls, stayed here for a single night at the end of our Danish holiday. We had previously stayed in a holiday home that was, to say the least, basic, and we were looking for a night of comfort before going to Legoland and then taking the ferry home to England. We found this place at the last minute on the internet and were attracted by the pricing and the fact it is so conveniently located.

This is essentially a traditional inn that is in the process of being thoughtfully and lovingly renovated with a contemporary twist. The aim seems to be to create a cool, upbeat place for families (presumably with Legoland in mind). The work was being carried out (quite sensitively) around us while we were there. This could have been annoying, but actually the cheerful and enthusiastic staff gave the place a good vibe, so we didn't mind.

The rooms were modern and well decorated, if somewhat spartan. They had been completely renovated and were clean and tidy. The beds were very comfortable.

We had a full dinner in the restaurant in the evening and it was excellent. The girls had just the kind of food they had missed from home, all perfectly prepared, while we had modern sophisticated, well cooked and seasonal fare. Highlights included a lovely pork belly and complimentary fresh bread. The breakfast was a bit more pared down, but still very tasty with some nice, thoughtful features such as locally sourced honey and freshly squeezed orange juice.

One particular highlight for families: there is a pool and playground that isn't advertised, and they have a play area indoors next to the restaurant where the kids could play while we enjoyed the proper grown up food. These features, together with the flexible menu and friendly staff, make this place a real winner for families.

A couple of minor comments to help the new owners: you should fix the gates by the pool so that children can be kept out - we were worried about leaving ours in the playground in case they went to the pool on their own. And I wanted tea at breakfast! I'm English!

I wish them all the best with this place, and hope one day to return.
