“Comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

We were travelling through Denmark on our way to the Bergen ferry so were only here for one night. I had not noticed the bit about contacting the hotel if you were arriving after 6pm until reviewing the directions on the train 6:15. Fortunately a phone call solved all, clearly it is run with minimal staff, but they were able to recommend a local restaurant.

Stayed June 2014, traveled as a couple

A good location close to the haven; Nice friedly staff; Very clean and tidy room at competative price; Good breakfast served in the early morning; I recommend this hotel for a stay easy to get around the city and other places. I was going to the Danish army camp and staff gave me exact details and directions;

There are a lot of good report on Tripadvisor about this hotel and it is no surprise. The location is first class and the staff are friendly and rooms clean and tidy. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone who wanted a no frills hotel - well worth a visit.

Stayed at the hotel for one night spontaneously. We arrived late in the evening and arranged for the stay via phone. We found the staff to be extremely helpful and very friendly, our room was clean and quite large. Restaurants and stores are in walking distance.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Stayed for four nights for business in August 2013.

Location is great - right Down to the small Yacht harbour and right in the middle of the centre of Fredericia (which is much more charming than I thought). Plenty of restaurants and shopping possibilities few minutes of walk away.

Rooms are 80's style, but comfortable and reasonable of size.

The Hotel will serve a basic breakfast, and there's no evening restaurant.

Staff are very helpful. Note - the reception have limited opening hours, which means that you must enter a pin code to get in if you arrive after 18.00.

The problems I encountered was that my Eiderdown smelt of sweat/smoke (although it's a completely non-smoking place), it contained a lot of allergens, and that the sink in the bathroom is equiped with an annoying hands-on/hands-off water falset.

The Hotel is an old seamens home which means they have a Christian interior theme.

Alcohol is banned on the premises, but it doesn't seem to be enforced at all as long as you mind your own business.

Altogether I would go here again - it's good value for money.

Room Tip: All rooms are reasonable of size, and are all different. There are no "bad" rooms.

My wife and stayed at this hotel in July 2013. The room was quite large , very clean and more than adequate for a couple with a large bed and twin duvets. As previous posters say the breakfast was good with fresh produce.
The receptionist was very helpful even before we booked in as on the previous day to our stay I called in to ask if I could park in the hotel car park early in the morning (10.30 am) of our arrival because the town would be busy because of the Landsoldaten parade. No problem. She also recommended the adjacent Farmor Kokkencafe/restaurant for an authentic meal. The meal was excellent.

Room Tip: I think there is only one room with a balcony. We got it because we booked early
