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!
