    Individual guest reviews

    • Family with children

      Cleanliness of room and porch really bad. The hotel needs renovation. We had two double rooms, we expected more, considering this is quite an expensive hotel. The restaurant only offered a buffet, not a really good one. The "fitness" room (just a couple of treadmills) were situated in the hall in front of the swimmingpool - humid and + 25 degrees. Not a place you want to work out.

      Some of the reception staff were pleasant and helpful.

      The breakfast was appalling, tables were not laid for breakfast apart from old table cloths and food stains from the night before, there was very little choice food wise and the food that was on offer was overcooked or cheap and processed. The room was tidy enough but the bedspread was worn to the point of having holes in it and also old stains. The bath was very narrow and uncomfortable to take a shower in.

      The wonderful location by the sea and woods, the seaview from the rooms with own balcony, the big terrace and the access to the beach. It was no problem to ask for a late check out, what was kind of important for us.

      We didn't like the cleanliness of our bathroom and the very simple breakfast that doesn't fit to the standard it should be. For us it felt a bit that they did have their high times and that the hotel in general could use some loving and caring hands. In our opinion not good enough for the price.

      Fair price for delivered services. The Location is 100%.

      Things was not 100% - garbadge at the terrasse all the time we stayed there. Badly educated waiters in the restaurant - no "finger spitz gefühl". The hotel is a bit worn out.

      Lovely place- quiet and peaceful- I fell asleep to the sound of waves crashing against the beach every night. I would definately return and this time I would book 60 minutes instead of 45 with the massage therapist, onstaff.

      Nice and quite location near the sea. Rooms were nice and proper.

      Excellent location, spectacular view over the ocean. Perfect location for out-door activities, jogging/running. Good breakfast. I staid during warm days in Aarhus and since no Air Conditioning in the room I was forced to keep the balcony door open during night. Nice listening to the ocean. Definitely a good choice and we had great days staying.

      The cleanliness of the room was very poor, and it is amazing how managers can accept such a poor workmanship of their cleaning staff. The Hotel is in a need for face lift, that is all fair and even has its charm, but keeping things clean is not difficult only a matter of management decision and discipline. Even the cloths of some of the staff in the restaurant were in a screaming need for wash. You can not expect a/c in such an old facility but would be required if it was a new development.

      Two light bulbs had not been replaced. Late one evening we returned to find new towels outside our door but the room had not been made up. When we complained at the front desk the next day, the clerk blamed us for staying in our room until noon so the maid couldn't make it up.
