It is no wonder Fyn was the native island of Hans Christian Andersen... staying at Falsled Kro is nothing short of a fairy tale. Many of the "Inn's" buildings date back to the seventeenth century, and are white with characteristic thatched roofs. Falsled Kro is situated in a lush and green part of the Danish countryside. It lies across from a charming port- during the summer it stays light until after 11 pm and from the amazing restaurant you can see the sea, sailboats, and a small unpopulated island. Per Hallundbaek is a world-class chef and we were spoiled by his inventive and delicious dishes (the menus change 8-10 times per year). He is also extremely kind and accommodating. We were lucky enough to stay at Falsled Kro for many days during a combined business/family/pleasure trip (we have stayed there many times before) and they even cooked a range of special dishes off the menu, supplemented by herbs and vegetables grown in their large vegetable garden. The kitchen excels at classic Northern fine cuisine such as (home) smoked salmon and caviar, but more experimental dishes (pigeon with foie gras, oysters with bone marrow and roasted croutons, fried poached egg with local smoked eel etc) were similarly memorable and delicate. The rib-eye we tried was second to none, and so was our specially ordered sole! The French trained sous-chef who cared for us when Per was off is a talented and rising star. His innovative Steak Frites (he made a selection of freshly made chips, fries, and mashed potatoes) and the accompanying sauce Bearnaise with a twist were some of the best we've ever had. The cheese selection is excellent and diverse, featuring a wide array of French and Danish cheeses that even my French stepfather was impressed by. Creme brulee was excellent, and so are the small chocolate truffles and eggs served with coffee/tea from their nearby chocolate factory. The wait staff (many chefs in their own right) are very kind and professional. Christian went out of his way to help when my fiancé and I wanted to visit nearby Faaborg (he drove us and picked us up) and offered to help us arrange sightseeing and kayaks. People at the front desk are nice and helpful, too. The rooms are spacious and light, many with small patios where it is possible to eat breakfast (which includes very delicious fried quail eggs and local organic specialities). The attention to detail is also great- along with chocolates on your pillow you get poetry and Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales. Bathrooms feature a line of high quality (and organic!) products. Some other reviewers have commented on the prices but I think you get a lot for what you pay for (and Scandinavian countries are more expensive than most other countries in Europe.) This is currently the only Relais and Chateau hotel in all of Scandinavia. Sadly, the hotel world in Denmark seems to be trending towards anonymous conference hotels, so charming gems like Falsled Kro are increasingly difficult to find. The only thing the place is lacking is a Michelin star or two.

I should have read more of the reviews. I drove quite a distance to stay at this prestigious property. Rooms are quaint (if you stay here ask for #6), service is competent, food is focused on set menus of very professionally prepared items. Quality is fine but being boxed into what the chef wants to cook today is not my thing. That and and the price of the room requires me not to suggest you stay here.

Room Tip: Room #6 is single story (not double where bath is downstairs from sleeping) and has a lovely patio

Falsled Kro maintains is top level is food experience, great atmosphere and high-level service.
The experience is world class, hard to compare, but their price level is on the very high side, also compared to other similar places.
Unqiue and great, but you need dollars, many dollars.

I was disappointed by the quality and service at this Relais and Chateaux. I expected a lot more out of the big price tag per night. It's not cheap. Over $500/night and does not include breakfast!!! Over-priced for what you got. The setting was nice. Near the water in a very quaint town. But nothing to do. You have to rent a car and go for a drive to see the area and get to a town where there are restaurants and shopping, about 20 min away. The room was okay but not practical. Nowhere to put your stuff in the bathroom and your luggage ends up staying in the middle of the living room cause its loft style with bed and cupboards upstairs but stairs are too narrow to bring your suitcase up. We had room no. 4. We had dinner both nights in the hotel and it was disappointing. You were offered no selection and some of the dishes were repeated the next dinner! They basically told you what you were eating and when. The night before they want to know what time you are having breakfast to make it easier on the kitchen. I'm on holidays, I don't know know what time I will be waking up! Dinner was very expensive and so was breakfast. Not worth the money. Breakfast was the exact same thing both mornings. No choice was offered. There were many little things they could do to raise the standards and thereby make it a better experience. For example, we stayed in early september and it was chilly. They had a fireplace in the lounge and I only saw it lit once and it ended up dying and not relit again. There is a great firepit outside which they could have lit and arranged chairs around so that after dinner you could sit outside. But it was never lit. We had no one to help us with our luggage when we arrived, nor when we checked out. They charged for water and there was no mini bar to speak of and there certainly was no fridge to keep the drinks cold. No movie offerings on tv, which isn't a big deal normally but when you are paying this much money, you want a lot of comfort and services. No spa facility whatsoever.

Room Tip: Try finding a hotel in the neigbouring town of Faaborg. It's a great little town with shops and...

We stayed 3 nights at Falsled Kro in a suite (17). There are many wonderful things about this place and it must be especially cosy and appealing in the winter when the fires are lit and all about is cold and misty. The grounds of the hotel are appealing (although gardens modestly planted) and the setting close to the sea and marina is charming. Buildings are olde-world cute.

The highlight of our stay was when we dined in the restaurant. The meal was brilliant and we also enjoyed the accompanying wine package which was interesting and generous with great service too. Definitely top marks here.

The rooms are pleasant but dated. I agree with JuneMalmer about the decor being granny-like. Bathrooms tired and seem to be decorated with cheap ceramic tiles (or perhaps expensive ones which look cheap). Shaving mirror was falling off the wall. Curiously the wardrobe was downstairs by the front door in our suite hallway and in the bedroom itself there was no shelf or drawer for clothes. Maybe an example of Danish design minimalism ?

On the upside the bed was big (they should point out the bed sizes on their website as we were told it was a normal double whereas it was actually a good king size) and the bedding etc was high quality. Housekeeping was pretty good although they forgot to service our room one day because apparently we had chosen not to have breakfast (?). They seem to have some process going whereby the housekeeper is notified when the guests arrive for their breakfast - so if you don't then she is not notified. That's a first for me. Moral - if you are heading out for the day - go and tell reception.

The biggest problem we had was with sleep. The rooms are not air-conditioned and so if the weather is warm that is a problem - when we were there the temp was around 28-30c on a couple of the days and the thatched houses seem to retain the heat like an oven - presumably because they are so well insulated. Admittedly Denmark is not often that hot. Associated is that when you open the windows there are mosquitos and bugs about. If you do manage to sleep then you will definitely wake up at dawn as the simple curtains offer absolutely minimal blackout. This seems like an own-goal and one which could be easily fixed.

One seemingly dumb aspect of the hotel's food offer is that it does not offer a more simple menu for its residents. Basically it is the full 4 or 5 course extravaganza or nothing. To be fair the reception staff did say the kitchen could do just 1 course as a sort of favour. However that is not a very comfortable way to dine. Had the place had a more varied choice of dining options from simple to more expensive (lunch brasserie menu looks nice) we may well have stayed to eat there on the evenings we did not want to have a the fine dining experience - but instead felt forced to go elsewhere. That said nearby Faaborg is a gem of a town with lovely high street and delightful port/marina area although disappointing dining options especially in the evening.

Staff at the hotel are all charming and helpful.

This is clearly a lovely place and much loved by its regulars. But for the price of the room (in our case over $500/night) you would expect perfection and this it does not deliver except in the dining room.

Room Tip: Some of the bedrooms are in the main building and have gardens with a view of the sea. These looked...

2nd stay after 6 yrs. First time charming , exterior still as charming but the interior meaning the upholstery needs a drastic change from those old flower power patterns to some contemporary designs. They look tired and worn . For the prices that they are charging and the distance to the hotel , it s only the Danes who can appreciate and designs only grannies will love.
Plumping needs to be fine tuned. Bathrooms need to be overhauled, they are just over used.

Wine menu in resturant is not up to par. Its never rude to inform waiter when the wine on the menu is sour or unpleasant rather than to hush up . That's definitely not posh.

Yes , its my opinion . Falsled Kro has plenty of room for improvement if the management sees beyond the bricks and thatched roof . In fact many of the surrounding houses have removed their thatched roofs in favour of common roof tiles which is killing the beauty and charm of Falsled. I have stayed in better hotels for that price and these hotels are not afraid to move with the times.

The hotel, is stunning without pretense as true exceptional places should be. One feels immediately at home, welcome and appreciated. The grounds and buildings are simply marvellous and the equipment short of nothing. So does the perfect discreet and very efficient housekeeping. Where else is your room done precisely during your breakfast ?

The restaurant is no less great.
Vegetables and fruit from the hotel garden have an exceptional flavour, quail eggs are THE speciality and Per Hallundbaek 's cooking sublimates them perfectly. Very creative, very inspired dishes are a delight, a real blessing. Perfection without useless frills best describes the very kind service. Wine list is incredible, maybe a little too centred on french wines, the heritage of the previous, french, chef.

Perfection of course comes at a price but we think it's worth it.
