Stayed here for 6 nights in July with my wife and son. It had its positive and negative sides, but on the whole it looks old and needs an upgrade of some sort.
We had booked this hotel through Faarup Sommerland, originally for 5 nights, but wanted to come a night earlier as the tent in the camping site we stayed at earlier became to "rainy". We proceded to call the hotel directly and they provided us with an additional night at the same rate as our original booking. The front desk provided good service as we checked in, and always tried to answer our questions with a smile on their face.
* The indoor pool area. Especially good for windy or rainy days. Our little son loved the slides!
* Proximity to the beach. We stayed at the A block, and you can almost see the beach from it. You just have to pass the sandhills and you're there. (Unfortunatly for us it was too cold and windy during our stay to spend much time on the beach)
* Kitchen was fully equipped and had fridge, owen and dishwasher. This meant that we could make meals at home and save some money.
* Livingroom/kitchen area seems to have been upgraded since the hotel was built, the sofa bed looked new as did some of the other furniture.
*Variety of activities and closeness to the city.
* The bedroom... What a depressing room. Looks like its from the 60's or whenever the hotel was built. The carpet was awfull, and the room looked dark. Where the window was supposed to be, there is just a wooden "door" and it opens right up to the street/hallway outside. Which basically means you have to have it closed. Which again means that you will have no fresh air in the room. We had two twin beds with just enough space between them for us to squeeze in our baby-crib for my son. We had reserved for 3 people, but I guess the hotel figured our son could sleep on the sofabed? As our son goes to bed around 7-8 in the evening, we decided to give him the bedroom so we could use the living room during the evenings and slept on the sofabed ourselves.
*Its sandy and windy. I know that the hotel is not responsible for this, but it does make everything seem a bit unclean when there is always sand around...
*The whole building, including its playground areas and outdoor swimmingpool seems worn. It's old. It needs an upgrade. They have lots of activities, but most seem ancient. It's great that it has an indoor playarea for kids, but when it smells like someone has chainsmoked there for 20-30 years, it kindof puts you off.
*The fitness center (Don't get me wrong, the center itself holds a high standard). The problem is that you have to pay extra in order to gain access to it. DKK 75,- per session. I feel that when you're a paying hotel guest, the fitness centre should be included.
All in all it is not a hotel I will come back to. It is close to Faarup Sommerland, so if you plan to spend all day there and just need a place to sleep, then this will do. But you can find many places around that are much better. The only thing I would miss is the excellent indoor pool.
