“A good home base!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

We stayed there as accommodation whilst enjoying the Billund amusement parks, only 10 mins away by car.
It's a very family friendly hotel, with each room being a small attached house, very simple but yuu feel more like at home.
The breakfast is very good though sometimes the restaurant is too crowded.
We also had dinner there a few times and the quality is very good (especially the meat!) and at the end ice cream for everyone!

We booked our stay online at Legoland holidays. Hotel is situated 11km from Legoland.

The rooms are bright and ok, just like any other motel... The bathrooms feel like your in a nursing home. I would not have given this hotel 2stars, closer to 3 if it not been for the unbelivable smell in the bathroom. A odour of old septic and pee.
I complained to the front desk the first morning, they told me to relax and that they would fix it ASAP. By the time we had eaten our breakfast the maitnance had done something, because most of the smell was gone. After a day in Legoland, the smell was back, I took a quick shower but had to hold my breath...
Gave the front desk a new message about the smell. OK was the answer.
At check out I did tell them about the smell once again. Ok they replied again...

Thanks for ehhhh.... An OK restaurant and breakfast. OK location and quiet surroundings.
(It's close to the flight path to Billund airport but nothing bad)

Hot hot, did I forget to mention, no AC!

Room Tip: Stay away from room 412 until the smell is gone...

We stayed in this Hotel with a special offer of Legoland. So we didn't spend much time in the hotel, but what we can summarize is: clean, very good breakfast, family friendly with a nice playground. Also our dog was welcome. The Hotel is a little outside of town in a commercial area, so don't expect to much for shopping or dining. But the town is very close by car.
So we would stay again.

This is a 3 star hotel, so the room was functional, clean, average, hence 3 star. There's no fridge in the room, but there's a beer and drinks vending machine outside if you want a cool one. We asked for wine glasses, no problem. Asked for coffee in the room, got a pot of coffee at reception.
After seeing the average room, I was worried about dinner. But it really was very good. Venison, with season veggies, a lovely SA Pinotage and desert. The kids loved their dinner as well.
Breakfast was simple, (no bacon) but nice sausages, REAL scrambled eggs, (which I've never had in a less than 5 star hotel) salami, ham, cereals the usual good quality continental.
Highly recommended as an alternative to the Legoland hotel, 10min drive from Legoland
Also had trampolines, huge sand pit area with climbing frames etc.
Esbjerg is only 40mins away as well for shopping etc.

Stayed here on business. Couldn't wait to leave. Basic basic rooms, uncomfortable small beds , average food . Uncomfortable seating . Ugly collection of external rooms like a Motel so can be a wet and windy walk from the dining room to the rooms. Avoid if you can.

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!
