“Legoland Holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Everything worked well, the room was pleasant and the breakfast was ok. The staff working at the breakfast restaurant were helpful and very friendly. The location is great for Legoland visits.
The only downside was the woman working in reception. She seemed to be somehow in charge because she was instructing also another woman working there. She was very cold and arrogant. There was no smile, no welcome neither goodbye-welcome again coming from her mouth. This felt very strange, on a holiday you are used to being warmly welcomed to your hotel.
So, to sum up - a decent hotel with at least one person with an attitude problem.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

I sometimes travel for work and in July of 2012 I attended a supervisor's meeting in Billund. We stayed at the Hotel Propellen and held our meetings in the onsite conference room.

The Sunday before our meetings started I was able to visit a Viking festival in Jelling. I used public transportation and the people at the Propellen were very helpful in getting me on my way. In addition to my visit to Jelling, I was able to visit a manufacturing facility in Give and our company group spent an afternoon in Legoland. From what little bit I was able to see of Denmark, it seems like a very beautiful place.

Across the street from the hotel is Lalandia, a large entertainment / shopping venue. That was convenient because it's about a 30 minute walk to Billund proper so it was nice to walk across the street for snacks and beverages.

I really enjoyed my visit to Billund and many thanks to the people at the Hotel Propellen.

A few minutes drive from the airport, a short walk to Legoland, you would be forgiven to think this hotel noisy and bustling. Far from it. Comfortable, clean rooms with free WiFi are are perfect for the businessman or couple wanting a little peace at the end of a hard day when a good shower followed by feet up with a drink from the minibar calls. However, you're more likely to try the rather good restaurant that concentrates on quality over an extensive menu - although that can be a minus point if you're only after a cheap snack. While the bar serves up mini pizzas it is a long wait for it does not open until 20.30. A range of essentials, sweets and drinks are available from reception but hat's off to the friendly staff who arranged a takeaway to be sent in from town for me to eat while working late at my bedroom desk. There is a lovely, professional and friendly atmosphere to this place that keeps it a step ahead of most business hotels in Denmark and I really do like the intimate nature of the bar once I eventually managed to find time to use it. Still got to try the pool and sauna... The riverside walk through the extensive 'wild' parkland into Billund provides a welcome diversion to work, with sculptures en route. Good size car park, too. Just a quick memo - the large reception is tiled and these can be very slippery when you walk in from the rain.

Room Tip: My last room overlooked the car park at the front of the hotel and it was as quiet as the previous r...

Stayed again at Hotel Propellen, and can only say it's well worth it! Nice rooms, easy parking, a pool, free table tennis, fast (and free) internet, and best of all offering a package to Legoland for the whole family. Food too was very good, with generous danish size portions. Only small quibble was that in pre-ordering dinner for the family, on one of the nights we stayed, the food took a little long to arrive, and the children's main courses were served long before adults. I thought the whole point of pre-ordering meals and time of seating before 12 o´clock would guarantee a swift service? Nevertheless, the stay was stress-free, staff are friendly, and the whole place caters very well for families. If you get a Legoland package here, it works out better value than at Hotel Legoland, since dinners are included. And since it takes about 3 minutes to walk to the main entrance at Legoland, you're in for a treat - especially if you need to have some quiet time, away from Legoland, but know you can come and go there as you please. The hotel is only a stone's throw from Billund town centre, where you can also stock up on cheap snacks and drinks (instead of mini bar prices!). Well worth the stay, and will gladly return!

Room Tip: If you want access to your car, parked round the back - get a ground floor room. Most rooms on the g...

Stayed here twice for business and enjoyed both visits greatly !!

Very clean and efficient and the staff on reception were only too happy to help when I had no phone charger !!

Friendly and clean !!!

Very close to legoland so would definitely be tempted to take the family !

This qualifies as a motel at best in terms of the old furniture, unsmiling service, mediocre restaurant and beow that for the bar. The worst part is the prevalent stench of Chlorine in the rooms which appears to have been overly liberally used to clean everything. The price was WAY too high for a very poor overall experience.
