“Stylish, relaxed hotel by the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2011

We've stayed at Skovshoved Hotel several times over the past few years but never written a review. The first time was for a family wedding and since then we would never consider staying anywhere else. It's stylish, relaxed, comfortable and cosy within easy distance of Copenhagen central. The team who run it are delightful. Get a room with a balcony overlooking the sea.

We just visited skovshoved on our trip to denmark.

It's without any doubt the most cosy hotelI stayed at ever. We stayed for 2 nights.
The staff was very helpfull and friendly.
The breakfast buffet is nice and common with delicious products.
The first night we had dinner in the restaurant and was recommended the 5-course innovation menu. That was outstanding, and the wine menu was a perfect match. Thank you so much for a cosy, relaxed and enjoyable weekend.

Hope to visit you again in the future.

love from carla & steve

I was really looking forward to this out of the way, seaside hotel that seemed so out of the ordinary. It was the most expensive hotel of our two week holiday, and we spent two nights here. I cannot say enough about the wonderful restaurant and gracious staff. However the hotel has rented the first floor to a bar. This might not be a problem during some seasons, but in the summer the locals partied until 3AM on Friday and Saturday night. The windows of course need to be open (no AC and who would want it?) and there was simply no rest for the weary. It was a huge disappointment.

On the road to Louisiana art gallery, this gorgeous boutique hotel would be our choice for a honeymoon destination. Downsides: the seaview rooms are right next to the main road, so a tad noisy at night; and it's quite a way out of the capital, and hard to reach by public transport, though not impossible. Other than that, it can't be faulted; a superb seafood dinner menu, classic Danish breakfast; woodland/parkland nearby for walks; calm, discreet service; beautiful decor and plenty of space in the suites. Would love to return... if only the Danish kroner weren't so strong ;-)

I loved my stay at Skovshoved. We were on our way to Sweden by car so wanted to be located to the north of Copenhagen near Helsingor. You are only 15 minutes from the city centre here and the bus stops right outside the hotel, but that was not important to us.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted and made to feel really welcome. The hotel had a wedding on that day and we were offered a choice of rooms and a promise that if noise was a problem a quick call to reception would sort things out. (Noise was not a problem at all). The receptionsit was really friendly and made us feel right at home, even down to walking us around to the hotel's pub and getting us settled there for dinner later on.

The hotel is located one street back from the beach road. You can opt for a room with a sea view which we did but it was a little disappointing, you are looking out over the houses on the street. However we had a big balcony with chairs and table to enjoy the view there was. The hotel is undoubtedly old and full of history, you get the feeling of walking into a country house. Yet at the sametime it is modern, minimalist and tasteful - very Danish. Our room had some nice touches, sweets, Molten Brown toiletries and free, fast wireless internet.

We decided to eat in the 'pub' which is more of a relaxed restaurant with a bar. You won't find crowds of drinkers here. The pub is part of the hotel, along with a takeway! There is also a lovely restaurant that serves fine dining type food, we didn't eat there although I wish we had it looked superb. The pub served traditional Danish food, burgers and steaks that sort of thing. Dish of the day changes daily and this is what I had. Roast beef with salad and a bakesd potato. The biggest (and typically Danish) serving I've ever had, lots of delicious roast beef and the best bearnaise sauce. May partner had the cheeseburger and rated that highly too.

If you've been to Denmark before you'll know that it is expensive, there really is no point mentioning that this stay was on the expensive side but the quality was superb. I can not wait to go back on anther trip to Sweden. I've had dreams about the place ever since we stayed!

Very nicely decorated & furnished hotel and room. The room was rather expensive for what you get, but thats to be expected at the current GBP FX rate in Denmark. I can't comment on lifts since we used the stairs, or air con since we don't normally use it.

Our room on the top floor at the front was especially nice, being quite spacious with lovely sea views from the french windows or sitting on the balcony. Very clean and modern furnishing.

The hotel restaurant was good and I think good value by local standards.

The hotel and restaurant staff were generally very helpful and pleasant. Notable, because service was very lacking at some other places we visited.

We hired a car & wanted to travel about a bit, so this hotel was the perfect choice. Able to get into town easily (10+min walk to a train/subway) or drive up the coast. Driving around was very straight forward since all the roads are very quiet and uncongested compared to the UK. The only difficulty caused by a minimalist approach to road signs and directions.

Would strongly recommend a drive north to Tisvildeleje & Hornbaek if you want to walk along beautiful and relatively undeveloped North Norfolk style beaches with big natural sand dunes. Of course, the weather is still northern Europe.

We had a great stay here for three nights at the end of a trip around Denmark. Very nice rooms which were simply but very tastefully decorated. The pub food is great (I recommend the ribs). Very simple to catch a bus into town. My only gripe is that it is pretty expensive. That said, we would definitely stay there again.
