Lovely place, decent rooms ( no a/c unfortunately), extremely good service at all fronts ( reception, restaurants, staff in general) and location is probably one of the best in denmark with beautiful parks. Highly recommend!

The hotel is clean, surrounded by beautiful nature. Nice service, Fantastic design! I booked a room with a mix style of the original old castle building and the new material inserted that going well and interesting. I like that the bathroom is separated between the toilet and the rain-shower??✨?‍♂️? The hotel amenities were quite complete and the needs: iron + ironing board, coffee maker, dryer, but if it's better, there should have slippers for walking inside the room, then we could feel relaxation and cleanliness because the hotel has a beautiful garden area to walk around,our shoes used were accompanied by dirt.??? We didn't have the opportunity to eat the hotel's food because the hotel organized an event.Moreover, in terms of breakfast, it is considered good. Especially, the cake (in pictured) is delicious.???

We visited as a dinner company of 13 people. I had a delicious and wellcomposed three-course vegan meal (not on their homepage, but no problem if you call in advance), and the diets of the other guests were also considered very well. Beautiful area, and very friendly staff. The prices are very reasonable considering what you get.

Broch of Gurness

The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village. Settlement here began sometime between 500 and 200 BC. At the centre of the settlement is a stone tower or broch, which once probably reached a height of around 10 metres. Its interior is divided into sections by upright slabs. The tower features two skins of drystone walls, with stone-floored galleries in between. These are accessed by steps. Stone ledges suggest that there was once an upper storey with a timber floor. The roof would have been thatched, surrounded by a wall walk linked by stairs to the ground floor. The broch features two hearths and a subterranean stone cistern with steps leading down into it. It is thought to have some religious significance, relating to an Iron Age cult of the underground.

The remains of the central tower are up to 3.6 metres high, and the stone walls are up to 4.1 metres thick.
