Very quick check in & being shown to our room, was a first for us,so thanks for that. The room was lovely & had everything we needed. We had a 3 course meal both nights, which was very well presented & delicious. You do get very big portions, so try not to eat too much beforehand. The breakfast was very basic but good. The only minus was that the milk & A38 were not cold & the marmelade/jam should have been covered up, as there were little flies about., The staff were very friendly & helpful. The hotel is really charming & has a good welcoming feel about it. Would definitely go there again.

Lovely small in, food almost at the level of gastronomik, everything from a very good chef and he´s hands, wine selection is good, and goes well with the menues of the week. Rooms are available, small but comfortable, beds are good, but if you can, get a room opposite of the road, towards garden side. Location is near Vestas, big factory for powermills, but do not make any disturb to your sleep, near by a lot of nature areas, near fishing places and near the west cost, where you can go fishing, kitesurfing and other fun at the shore,

The hotel proved ideal for our five night stay. Nice en-suite rooms in the annex with comfortable beds. Excellent food both at breakfast and dinner. A pleasant bar and friendly staff who spoke good English. There was a small car park at the rear of the hotel.

Fantastic food and service. In the summer when the windows are open, we have a bit of traffic noise in our room. But a very nice place to stay:) A quiet town, but close to the sea and a lot of attractions.

We stayed at this small hotel with adjoining restaurant in the village of Lem not far from Ringkoebing. We got the keys to a nicely refurbished house opposite the hotel, next to the train station. The house would be ideal for a family as it had three bedrooms, two of them had lounge seating arrangements. Outside small garden with chairs and table. We were not disturbed by the trains since they only run every two hours between 7.00 am and 11.00 pm. The lady at the reception recommended some sites in the area, especially the restored delta of the Skjern river. A beautiful site with lots of bird life. We had a five-course dinner at the restaurant, all very different and very tasty. We enjoyed a bottle of excellent Ripasso wine at a very reasonable price. A very pleasant stay.
