“A fine stopping off motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Arrived late and was pleasantly surprised with the standard of the room , nice and clean with a decent sized shower room.
Staff were very friendly, evening buffet was plentiful and realistically priced, although wine was a tad pricey.
Great location for visits to Legoland and an ideal stopover for the airport.

We staid with our two children at Lyngheden in July 2012. The hotel is located close to Legoland, however, you will need a car to go there or anywhere else (even though there is also a bus goining to Legoland). The hotel fullfilled our expectations; clean room, friendly stuff and a nice breakfast. The only small minus was the price of the dinner buffee which, in our opinion, was quite high (over 100 eur for two adults and two children, including 2 glasses of wine). The food was, however, of very high quality. Overall, we can recommend the hotel, good value for the money!

Being 10 km from Legoland this hotel was a base for our family trip. It is clean, rooms are OK, and breakfast buffet is wonderful. Staff might smile a little more, but as it rained there all the time I do not blame them that much :) Rooms are in a separate buildings, so if it not raining, you may have a beer outside, which was nice.

Everything was satisfactory except the temperature was a bit high in the room. Perfect place to stay if you are going to Legoland. Our six-year-old enjoyed the playgrounds outside the door.

We stayed at Lyngheden hotel for three nights to visit Legoland with our three children, ages 3, 7 and 9. It was great. We had a family room with a double bed and a couch that pulled out to a double. The room was clean but lacked a minibar. We arrived late and the key was in the door and the beds were made. The bathroom was basic but clean. good breakfast with a nice selection of food. Nice outdoor environment, with playground and trampoline for the children. 15 min drive to Legoland. Overall a great hotel experience.

Great hotel for staying with children. Nice outdoor environment, with playground and trampoline for children and nice seating for adults. It felt safe having the children running around the premisses while we were enjoying a nice glass of wine nearby.

The room was basic, but clean. We arrived late in the evening and had to make 2 of the four beds ourselves. Other than that the room was made everyday.

The food was very good and above the standard expected from a this class of hotels. We ate in the restaurant twice for dinner. The first time they had a la carte with some nice main dishes, and a nice selection of children dishes. The second night they served a buffet with fresh grilled meat and lots of cold assorted dishes.

The internet connection was partly free (for a duration of some hours by registering), but was really of poor/slow quality.

The Lyngheden Hotel is on the outskirts of a village called Grindsted in Denmark. It's in an industrial estate style area, around 15 mins by car to Billund. It's within walking distance of nothing of interest (industry estates), so you need a car. Staff service was poor, and receptionists are the waiters!

The rooms are on one level arranged over paths and grassland with a parking lot out the front. Sadly, there's trampolines outside our room (and rather a few others!) and is very noisy, kids were out being loud and bouncing till around 10:30 pm! Room was basic and more motel like. Two single beds together to form a double and an awkward pull out sofa. Bathroom was big but dead insect on the floor was unpleasant which cleaners failed to notice.

There was a wedding one night of our stay and were very noisy very late. Free wifi was good, ask at reception for password.

Breakfast and dinner were ridden with HUNDREDS and I mean loads of flies. Everyone else failed to notice this and just went on and ate it all as if they were invisible! Serious health issue here!!!!!!! Breakfast and dinner are both buffet, nobody to seat you or serve you and very few to clean up. A dinner ridden with flies for 58 DKK per person?! Pah!

Staff aren't helpful, that is if you can find one around. Made a complaint but no part-refund was offered and person didn't seem to care. STAY AWAY!
