This is a modern hotel set within an old country house/mansion which was at one time a sanatorium. Our room was comfortable - with a very comfy large bed. There was also a small balcony, large enough to sit out on, with garden seats provided. The wildlife and sculptures gave plenty to look at. We did wonder at the fly swat hanging on the back of the door, but given the proximity to the woods and lakes, no doubt there can be a need for it. Only one wasp ventured into our room and soon found its way out again.
The hotel is situated close to the main road (Route 52) on the edge of Silkeborg, so you either need to use the (free) bikes, have a car or use the bus to get anywhere. Silkeborg itself has a picturesque centre on a large (long) lake and the town is well-positioned for days out by car to Aarhus, the west coast, the north of Jutland and of course the real Legoland.
Breakfast buffet was excellent with a wide choice of fruit, imaginative home-made bread, cold meat, cheese, cereals, yoghurts, eggs, bacon and pancakes. We were slightly disappointed there was not more choice of food available in the evenings, although the quality of the sandwiches in the lounge and the very upmarket food in the restaurant was all excellent.
All-in-all, wish we could have stayed longer. less
