Located just out of the historic town of Horsens at the edge of Nørrestrand nature reserve in central Denmark, this 132-room hotel often draws families and a business-minded crowd. But, it still manages to exude just the right amount of Scandinavian cool, thanks to Kim Utzon Arkitekter’s understated yet discerning design, which starts in the 39-foot lobby atrium. Guestrooms have buttery leather headboards and creature comforts such as flat-screen TVs and free WiFi; some have private balconies. The hotel’s rooftop restaurant serves seasonal bites with a focus on hearty meat-driven dishes and Danish cheese. And like any Scandinavian hotel worth its salt, there’s also an on-site health club that has a sauna and steam room.
In the Area
Lying at the end of Horsens Fjord in Jutland, the 12th-century town of Horsens is a great base for summertime family fun, with activities such as canoeing on the Gudenåen River or riding the (rollercoaster) rails and touring themed “countries” like Mexicoland and Pirateland at Djurs Sommerland. But those amusement parks might pale in comparison to the ultimate kid-pleasing one: Legoland. For more action, head to the Horsens Golf Club, where there’s even a kid’s sandbox club for your budding Tiger Woods’ to practice their swing.
How to Get There
We spent 2 nights here on our travels in Denmark and were most impressed. The setting is very nice and a 25- minute walk brings you to the centre of Horsens with its many restaurants. The rooms are spacious and very clean, the beds comfortable. One small suggestion - it would be good to have a towel rail at basin-level, maybe even 2, so that towels can easily be hung up to dry a little. The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice. I especially liked the scrambled egg - the little dishes on top of the heated counter are wonderful, much better than the bain-marie at most breakfast buffets. The staff were friendly, efficient and spoke wonderful English. I would recommend this hotel highly.
Stayed at the Hotel Horsens late January for a conference then a week of meetings. The facilities are well set up for conferences and business. Free parking. Good WiFi. Good food, meeting rooms, spaces to get away a little. Rooms are very good standard also. Overall one of the better hotels for business, in my view.
Stayed there for 3 nights. Hotel room is clean and comfortable. Room has required toiletries and equipped with electric kettle. Complementary Buffet Breakfast was great with wide spread.
For Dinner, we need to book in advance. Entire hotel ambience is good. Overall a pleasant stay.
The hotel is very spacious in a typical north european style, the breakfast was very good and the rooms were big and clean.
I really enjoyed my staying in this hotel very close to the city center of Horsens.
We had some problems with the restaurant because it is not open 24h and so I had to order an expensive tuna fish sandwich with the room service.
The first day we arrived, during the dinner, we had a wine bottle of our own and we were obliged to pay it as the basic wine in the restaurant menu: this is very strange!
Very nice hotel with great spa-area.
We loved the hotels fresh atmosphere and spacious room. Everything worked perfectly. Our kids loved the breakfast and it's pancakes with nutella. At the evening there is free entry to the hotels spa-area and it was great place to relax after spending the day at the Legoland.
Horsens isa beautiful little village with nice little beach. Make a notice that all the restaurants and shops closes very early (at 18:00ish at the eavening). There is a nice restaurant/cafe at the harbour, where is also a ice-cream bar :)
