“Legoland, here we come”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2010

Fabulous but not fancy hotel. Literally just a 5 minute walk to Legoland. We were in desperate need of clean clothes but had had trouble finding a laundromat on our travels. At Propellan we were able to use the hotel's washing and drying facilities for a very reasonable price. The room was very clean - not huge but fine for 1 night. The food in the restaurant was excellent - plenty of choice and the service was great. We opted for a Legloand package which also meant we didn't need to queue for tickets and also included was a buffet dinner which had heaps of great food for both adults and children.

We stayed at the Propellen for two nights to visit Legoland with our young boys, ages 6 and 7. It was great. We took the bus from Vejle and the bus stop is 200 meters from Propellen's front door. We had a family room with a double bed and a couch that pulled out to a double. Nice large bathroom and minibar. The hotel has Legos for sale in the lobby, a nice (if small) pool and a kids play room in the basement with a ball pit, which our kids loved. We ate both nights at the hotel restaurant and it was fine with a good kids menu and coloring materials provided to help keep the kids occupied The play room is close enough to the restaurant that we let the kids go and play while we finished the wine both nights. Legoland is maybe 400 meters away from the hotel -- an easy walk, even coming back with many bags of Legos from the store in Legoland. I cannot compare the Propellen to the Legoland Hotel, but you will not be disappointed with Propellen if you are visiting Legoland with young kids.

Great hotel within very easy walking distance of Legoland. The rooms are Scandinavian simplicity, clean and in good condition.

Hotel reception staff were faultless and fluent in several languages.

Restaurant and breakfast of high quality and decent size portions.

Only niggle was no Air-Con and the room was warm leading to disturbed sleep.

Only few minutes walking to Legoland and 3 km from the airport. Very old hotel, old decoration of the rooms. Breakfast was quite good. So called Spa was very old, no lockers or even shelves for clothes in shower room. Dinner buffet was quite good - terrace of the restaurant was nice place.

Hotel Propellen is next door to the Legoland Hotel/Legoland Park. It's a great value compared to the Legoland Hotel, and you can walk to the main gate in 5 minutes. I recommend it for that reason. The rooms are on the plain side but have everything you need for a decent night. The front desk was efficient and courteous, and the breakfast buffet was as expected. On the minus side: The restaurant tries to combine a high-end front dining room (with a surprisingly extensive wine list) with a family-style buffet in the back for dinner, but it doesn't work. At least it didn't the night we were there. The wait staff was completely overwhelmed and simply ignored new guests who came in for dinner. The buffet was very expensive (210 kroner) for what was offered. If you want to spend big money on a buffet dinner, go next door to the Legoland Hotel. Besides that, I would return to Hotel Propellen.

My son and I had a pleasant stay at hotel Propelen. It has a perfect location, with only 5 minutes walking to Legoland and Lalandia. Spacious clean room with free Internet use. We will definitely come back to Propelen next time we visit Legoland/Lalandia!

Wanna see Legoland? This hotel covers the needs for both adults and kids. A discrete buildig, resembling an modern version of a traditional big farmbuilding laid out around a big open courtyard on the backside. Just a 3 minutes walk to Leogland or the Lalandia waterland. The hotel provide a generous breakfast buffet to give you strenght to walk for hours in Legoland. A calm atmosphere and serviceminded personell assure your quick recovery after a long day out. Great restaurant, most people are unable to finish the tender and juicy veal cutlet they serve, and I'd like to see anyone ask for extra gravy. Very impressive selection of wines to suit all tastes and pockets.
