    Very dated. But unfortunately, there was no better options in Hirtshals at the time of booking. Breakfast could have been better. It was hot and the windows had weird way of opening up and kept closing throughout the night.

    Free parking. Good location for taking a ferry. Big rooms, but dated. OK for one night.

    the interior design of the room is awful...the interior design of the entire hotel is dreadful...no concept at all!!! The space itself is fine...so much space in the rooms...so poorly utilized...a shame really.

    close to the ferry port and town center,... oceanarium is across the road ...on site parking, decent jogging possibility nearby

    • Stayed 1 night

    Our room was extremely cold and as soon as we entered, the windows were open and we had to leave our winter jackets on. Bathroom floor was cold. The room was in a good size but lacked ambience and coziness.

    The restaurant had very friendly, service minded staff who were very helpful. We had to wait some time for the food to arrive and they compensated us for this with free drinks on the house, which showed a high service mindedness. The food was excellent with very fresh ingredients - in fact, some of the best we've had in Denmark!

    It is important to consider that the hotel is not so close to Hirtshald. I stay there because I have a meeting just crossing the street. But the hotel is quite comfortable and quiet... and you can rent a bic to go around
