    « Comfortable »

    This hotel has small, comfortable rooms with good wifi and breakfast. Good value for money and recommended for short stays. Therestaurant has a very short menu. People with access to a car should probably rather dine out.

    « Amazing Hotel »

    I stayed at this place on the 9th and the 10th of Jan. Its a beautiful place and it is an ideal choice whether you are visiting for holiday or for business trip. It is a pity I visited this place for a very short trip - It was dark most of the time so I couldn't see the full beauty of this place. But will for sure visit the place next time. The single room #25 that I stayed was the best ever till date - It was compact and still had the space I needed. I loved the bathroom and the solid feel of the bathroom and the equipments. Internet was first class - Parking is spacious . Breakfast is OK and could do with some more variety - it is typical breakfast - doesn't stand apart - but the restaurant is a wonderful place has a great ambience.

    « Fantastic yet again! »

    I stayed here again and it is the hotel in Silkeborg that I really prefer over the clinical stereotyped alternatives. Typically Danish with good food and rooms and super friendly staff. Breakfast is a fantastic choice with hot and cold dishes available. Good parking and only a short jaunt to the town itself. Thank you, Merry Christmas and I will be back!

    « Lovely bed, has what you need. »

    Was here on business for one night only. Comfortable room, nice quiet location. The breakfast was good, bread, cold cuts, yoghurt with musli, some sausage, egg and then pancakes and fruit. The decor is slightly old school, but that is part of their charm.

    « Very nice, excellent location »

    A short walk from the city center, in a quiet forrest, with beautiful gardens, this is a lovely place. I had a room in the old "Skovridergaard"-building. Lovely old house, but beautifully restored and very clean. Excellent service, and wonderful outdoor eating area outside the breakfast room. Only disappointment was a little sparse breakfast, it was very nice, but could have given this hotel full score with a little extra for breakfast.

    « Fine hotel in beautiful setting »

    Superb location not far from the city centre, in a beautiful setting in a parc and with a forest close by. Excellent restaurant, but I found the room a bit dull although it had a fine size and was well equipped. Very good breakfast.

    « Fantastic location and very good food »

    Few people know but you can actually just drop in at Gl. Skovriddergaard for lunch or dinner, but they do cater for groups as well so it might be a good idea to book in advance. It has fantastic location in the middle of its own little park and serves very good and up to date food both inside and outside, weather permitting. This is a perfect place for a meeting in central Jutland or just for a relaxed lunch or romantic dinner.

    « Home from home »

    Great stay again and a great welcome. I had room 10 which was like a little apartment and very quiet. It is a pleasure to return as always!

    « Surprising gem with stunning surrounds. »

    This grand old dame was a treasure to discover. Quiet scando. retro rooms with incredibly comfortable beds. Old fashioned service and opulence meets 5 star dinning. The dinner we had was utterly incredible..!!! We wanted to lick the plates, and then beg for more.. (although we were completely full..) The presentation, service, quality and tastes were up there with one of the finest meals i've had. The sauces were heavenly and plentiful... silky.. I could just go on... If you are looking for mini bar style accommodation, there isnt one here. A kettle and tea bags were the extent of it. I don't note this in a negative way, infact quite the opposite. It was quite a nice change. The grounds and general presentation of the entire property was lovely. I would highly recommend this lovely place. My mother and I stayed in 2 separate double bedrooms.

    « A beautiful hotel »

    We stayed here one night. I had requested, in advance, a quiet room overlooking the gardens at the back with possibly a balcony and we got all of them! The staff were really welcoming and helpful. The hotel is within walking distance of the town centre which was also a bonus as we could leave the car in the hotel car park (free). The room was well equipped with tea/coffee making facilities and good WIFi (free). We did eat at the hotel's restaurant but it is a bit pricey and the portions are small. They do for warn you of this, but if this is an issue there are plenty of places to eat in Silkeborg centre. The breakfast was excellent with a plethora of choice. You could eat as much as you liked! There is nothing wrong with this hotel and we would recommend it whole heartedly.

    « Perfect spot for exploring lake district »

    The room was very nice and the breakfast was delicious. The staff was most accommodating and welcoming. We borrowed bikes from their small collection at the hotel and explored the bike trails around the lakes. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the train station and the central downtown area, but if you are driving it's just a few minutes to many local attractions. The hotel is modern and has a more institutional feel of a conference center, and doesn't have the charm of an older hotel. But the grounds are well kept and the rooms are very comfortable.

    « Nice area, good food - but rooms could need an upgrade »

    Stayed for just one night. Really nice garden around the hotel. You can borrow bikes and go around the lakes. Had a surprisingly good dinner in the hotel restaurent and breakfast was also very nice. Room was small and could need an upgrade of colour, furniture and bathroom.

    « Excellent food »

    We had dinner at Gl. Skovriddergaard following a series of meetings. The location is extremely pretty and the meeting facilities very very good and on top they serve absolutely excellent food both for lunch and dinner. The restaurant staff is however not very professional and totally lack wine knowledge. This is however a place that I would happily recommend to anyone that needs a place for a meeting in Jutland.

    « Just perfect »

    I've been on this hotel a couple of times, for business and pleasure. It is a good hotel, nicely placed and in good condition. It is clean, the service is good and the food is great (TRY their cheesecake at lunch, even if you are not normally liking cheesecake!!) If you have time, take a walk in the small forest just next to the hotel. There are free parking with fine amount of parking spots.

    « Simply and quietly first class »

    I have stayed here many times and find the hotel really great and friendly with first class staff who go out of their way to be helpful and welcoming. The location is good for Silkeborg and the outlying area of forests and countryside. I will be back and always look forward to my stays here.

    « So quiet »

    Good and recently renovated hotel, small rooms but everything you need is present. Only thing that comes to mind is that it's so quiet! A little music while having breakfast would not hurt anyone! Besides this everything was perfect.

    « Return to a great hitel »

    It is always a pleasure to return here. Great warm welcome with rooms that have been recently redecorated and friendly and helpful staff. I ate in the restaurant which carries a separate write up and the food was really sublime. Breakfast is included and first class.

    « Cosy quiet hotel »

    I only stayed a single might as I was just passing through. Very nice small hotel, located just outside the town of Silkeborg. Small rooms, good beds, clean bathroom, good wifi. The breakfast is nice, but lacks bacon :-) For a nice view, get a room with a treeline view.

    « Old style hotel in quiet location - move to 60/70s! »

    I was having room in part build in 60s (I guess), rooms with basic furniture in simple Scandinavian style and obviously Bang and Olufsen TV ;-), bathroom bit tired, but clean. I had a room with garden view and balcony very quiet! Breakfast up to Danish standard, could be a bit better.

    « Excellent place to stay as base for daytrips »

    My wife and I stayed here for several nights in mid May and enjoyed it very much. We had a spacious room with a balcony overlooking the landscaped grounds, and it was very quiet for sleeping. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the grounds are attractive, and the breakfast buffet is quite extensive. A car is useful to have since the hotel is on the southern edge of the city, with easy access to parkland. I booked our room through since I found the hotel's English-language website to be lacking in information on room rates (unless it was my website navigation skills that were lacking). I also found the sauna to be overheated (105 degrees Celsius). Those were minor issues, however, and we would not hesitate to stay there again.
