This hotel provided everything you would expect of a quality hotel - a warm welcome, clean bedrooms, ample parking, high speed internet & excellent food. I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area.

The old fashion room, the good restaurant and the professional service made this place convenient for my stay in Odense. The only problem was the lack of heating in the room which was quickly solved with a portable heater.

Like many other Scandinavians, we drive to Europe during the summer hoildays. Often, hotels are full between Copenhaguen and Rødbyhavn. An alterantive to the Putgarten-Rødby ferry is then to drive to Germany via Odense. Twice we have done this, and both times we stayed at Hotel Knudsen Gaard. The second time, in August 2015 was even better than the first,... More

My favorite place to stay when visiting Odense for business. The owner is charming and attentive. Breakfast delicious, especially the soft smoked cheese. The rooms are very clean and each are decorated differently. I simply love this location.

Unfortunately we only stayed one night in this lovely hotel. Our room was beautiful, spacious, comfortable and quiet. We had dinner in the hotel which was delicious and the service of all staff was friendly and helpful. Location is probably best if you have your own transport.

Having first visited this hotel in 1973, I continue to enjoy both the old charm that it has retained over the years and the improvements made as time goes by. The rooms are comfortable, light and spacious in comparison to some in the same price range. The views are pleasant no matter which of the rooms you end up in... More

Odense is a pastoral city with the good fortune to have been the home of Hans Christian Anderson. Most of the central city celebrates their most famous son. However, the spirit of HCA is felt in the warmth and hospitality of the Best West Knudsen Gaard. We were most comfortable there and enjoyed the service, setting, and restaurant.

This is a pleasant hotel, but much more typical of a motel than usual. We caught the train and it was a more than 35 minute walk to the hotel from the station. Staff very pleasant, and rooms fine (if a bit small). Noise was fine, and adequate breakfast. Included WiFi also good. Overall, if you have a car then... More

Great environment in the hotel and staff are very friendly and helpful. Peaceful gardens and beautiful countryside style houses. Super nice food in the restaurant, but slightly pricy. Great stay overall! Family and pet friendly. There's a petrol station with convenient store which is very handy!
