5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I stayed here for a conference and was very impressed with the hotel, the food, as well as the view which was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great. The rooms were simple but nice.

Have stayed here before on business, and must warn people travelling from other contries. Do not - I repeat Do not expect 4 star aminities. This is a 2 1/2 star hotel with a 3 star spa.
1. I had to work for 30 min in my room, and as the cleaning came during those 30 min, they never returned and my room was not cleaned that day.
2. No coffee and tea facilities or mini bar in the room.
3. Two very narrow beds pushed together is their idea of a double bed.
4. The restaurant on the 3 floor is nice though.
5. The curtain in the bath room was just a gaze style fabric and very see through, when I said this to reception, they dismissed it with The words that the windows were far away from other windows, but I could sit at the toilet seeing people moving around in their living rooms....hmmmm
6. Would I go there if I was to pay for it myself? No vay in ....

The hotel is located on Denmark's most picturesque coastline; and the neighbourhood is where the country's most affluent reside. I suppose this is why it is so pricey?! Huge fancy boats/yatches with red and white flags can be seen going past as one sits at the hotel restaurant or cafe terrace, or from one's hotel room window.

The hotel is a spa and health resort complex, with varied types of accommodation. According to the Danes, the hotel is very important nationally as an accident victims rehabilitation facility; and this perhaps explains the reason for the many medical courses/workshops.

As a functional hotel, it lacks the expected service concept of a 4* hotel. Apart from when we checked in, we saw no one at reception. Rooms remained uncleaned till very late in the day and room service trays were left littering the corridors for longer than I've ever experienced at any hotel I've stayed in. We even made a game out of spotting trays along corridors and betting if they would be there when we returned from our days' outing. They usually were! And when we needed something done from reception, it was obvious from the service we got they were not used to being asked such things, which are the norm at other normal hotels. On our last night, only our bed was made and our used coffee cups and towels were not removed/changed. We just gave up the thought of complaining since it was our last night anyway. Unsure maybe this is normal in Denmark because of the high cost of labour? Did I mention the rooms had no air conditioning?!?! We sweated throughout the warm summer nights.

On the whole. we enjoyed our vacation mainly because the weather was exceptionally nice and the region beautiful. Mattress and beddings were nice and soft but we would have preferred a double bed. Though it seems this concept is alien in Scandinavia, in general.

I score this hotel less than 2.5 over 5.

Room Tip: Ask. Often.

Having stayed in many hotels, this is different - it has kept the spirit of of a classic spa resort from 30-ies in last century. The sea view in breakfast restaurant justifies the high price. I like the focus and information about healthy lifestyle and food. Fitness center is one of the most advanced I have seen and the spa area is fabulous after the renovation.

Stayed here briefly 6 years ago and was not impressed. However after the recent remodeling and new SPA section we decided to do a weekend trip to this Hotel. The location of the hotel is great. Nestled between the train tracks and the sea in Skodsborg. Be sure to get a room on the sea side (Which we did). The property itself was originally a health spa for the wealthy in the late 1800's. However the old original building has seen several series of upgrades and extra buildings added. This results in a very confusing floor plan and varied levels of (dis)repair around the property. Now, its not really fair to complain about building upgrades but it seems to me that everything was done "on the cheap" - and the styles in interior range from early 1900's to 1980's, 1990's and ultra modern - which is actually a pretty bad combination if you like architecture.

We had booked a remodeled sea view room. Upon arrival we quickly checked in and headed to the room. The room was obviously from the *previous* remodel 6-8 years ago. It was quite run down. The cleaning was obviously below par which resulted in very nasty mattress covers (not cleaned in 2012!) hairs in the bed and black mold in every nook around the bathtub. Also note that the rooms do no feature a minibar, do not feature room service, or any other modern 4-5 star amenity. We called reception (constantly busy, they have 2 phone lines, if someones talking you get a busy signal instead of a queue). Reception staff (which seemed nice enough, and the reason for 2 stars and not less...) gave us another room. Now in the older section of the hotel. At best this room is 20-22m2. Bathroom and closets + "hall" takes up half - so imagine a dorm room size and you'll have it right. At least the "newly renovated" room had newer bed which was not totally soft (160cm wide), the tiniest bathroom ever but a nice view - and altogether seemed a lot cleaner that the older rooms. In the older part of the hotel the walls are wafer thin - we spent all evening listening to our neighbors discussions in swedish - down to the word you can hear everything. The bed is a neat 2 piece box squished together to 1 bed. The top mattress is 2x 80cm - which means you have a "hole" in the middle. Yes - that is annoying, I found my self rolling into that all night. Note that there is no air conditioning - so in the summer i'd imagine that it gets very hot. The heating during winter was sufficient.

The SPA (which is the main draw to this place) was sort of nice - looked nicer in pictures and brooches for sure - its quite tiny in real life. When we visited there was maybe 10-12 people in the spa area and it felt borderline crowded. Interestingly enough the nice attendant at the reception area spent a lengthy time iterating the rules and regulations - including specific details as to what parts of your body you needed to was before entering the spa and how to do so. I was at a loss for words. Everything is extra. Even slippers and robes.

The inclusive breakfast was served in the 3'rd floor restaurant. Please note that that even on sundays that ends at 10am. (YES!). Nobody at the reception had bothered telling us that, so we managed a quick 15 minute breakfast. Luckily the food and service was so poor that 15 minutes was more than enough. I seriously doubt that any of the staff we encountered in the restaurant had any formal training. The big polish bloke who was supposed to be a waiter, was stuffing himself with bread from the buffet. The two young early 20's (male and female) was chatting each other up by the juice dispenser (yellow water with sugar and taste added) and that was it basically. The options were simple - to put it nicely and the warm food consisted of eggs, sausage and bacon. Interestingly the 3 hot foods were held in one "heater" with three subdivisions. The utensils were kept in a cup with dirty water - all three types of utensils in the same cup. So say, you were preferring kosher or muslim oriented food, you would be unable to use the utensils that had bacon/pork fat on it. Never seen it done like that before.

Overall the entire experience was below par and not in a million years would I visit again. Price wise its typical danish prices at around $375 for 1 night with breakfast. That was about $300 too much.

Ok, so yes, the location is great, superb view from the restaurant on the last floor, apparently upscale neighborhood, but... I arrived late in the evening when you don't have a view of anything, I was thirsty and slightly hungry and oops, nothing to eat or drink in the room, no room service, even if you want drinking (I don't like to drink tap water in hotels) water you should go downstairs hoping the place is open. Eating options in the evening are limited and you should hope you arrive while the bar is open. The room (at least mine) was a simple room with a bed, a tv, wardrobe (with a safe), desk or so and a bathroom (basic). I should admit that the balcony looked nice if the weather allows you to use. There was even a view to the ocean so yeah, the exterior was nice but some efforts for more comfort would have been nice!
I staid there for business and the facilities are good. I have to acknowledge the free internet and the great gym! Great! If you have time for spa and enjoy the views and don't mind the basic room conditions, then that's the place!
