“Alright For Over Night Stay”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Lets say this is not a four star hotel but in saying that this hotel does have some good points. Location is close to the ferry terminals that go from Denmark to Sweden and we used it as a one night stay for that reason. The hotel is set up for families with a indoor water slide which goes into a indoor and outdoor pool. Pool hours stop right on 9.00 pm each night which is good for guests who wish to have an early night. The hotel has a nice restaurant and the included breakfast is good. If you want to eat out there is a full range of places to eat close to the hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. On the down side the rooms are very average. the room we were given was small and uninteresting the bed was comfortable but pillows small. For a one night stay this hotel was OK.

Room Tip: This is a large hotel ask if you can have a look at the room first they may not all be of a low stan...

We had a nice weekend get-away with our kids. Breakfast buffet was great and our room was okay. Our kids enjoyed the extensive indoor waterpark, with a lot of variations. I liked the animated thunder and moonsun rain :)

Room Tip: Nice local restaurant, Jerry's Restaurant & Bryghus.

Rooms are functional and clean but are small with dated decor. Great pool area. Good choice of breakfast. Don,t stay here if you want a quiet hotel. we were awoken by screaming children running up and down the corridors. Also there is poor sound isolation between rooms.

We visited the hotel with our two year old son and were very pleased with the hotel's water park. There were opportunities to swim both outdoors and indoors and several saunas. The water park was also very child friendly with a children's section.

Breakfast was excellent, with a good selection of both hot and cold dishes. There were also a small playroom adjacent to the breakfast room.

The room was functional and simply furnished with two twin beds and two bunk beds. The room was somewhat dated and ventilation system worked badly. This resulted in hot and stale air in the room.

The staff was friendly and we got to check in at 7:30 a.m at arrival, although check in normally start at 3:00 p.m.

This is a good hotel for families as we would like to visit again.

If you have kids this hotel is fantastic since the indoor Water playground with waterslides keep them busy all day. I often use this hotel for business travelling and when I arrive after been driving many hours on the road it is very relaxing to jump into a hot spa bath letting the bubbles loosen up all your tensions. Besides from this I do not agree with the Scandic philosofi and would rather choose another hotel chain for bussines travelling. It might be an environmental philosofi but not my taste.
The restaurant however is very good. They make the best burger I've had for a long time.
The service level by the staff is fantastic. Helpful in any way.
