The Old Chestnut Tree in Silkeborg is without doubt the best bed and breakfast that we have ever stayed in. Located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of Silkeborg’s railway station, excellent shops and restaurants and museums, as well as within walking distance of the woods and lakes makes The Old Chestnut Tree a perfect place to stay.
Cecile, the owner, is very welcoming and works hard to ensure that guests are very well looked after. The bedroom we stayed in was very well furnished, clean and comfortable. Coffee and tea are provided in the room and the mini bar is well stocked with a variety drinks. The bathroom, too, is clean and bright and is well stocked with soaps, shampoo, tissues and clean dry towels are provided every day.
Downstairs is a large, beautifully furnished light and airy dining/sitting room which has a fridge, microwave, cutlery and crockery for use by the guests. These facilities are perfect for those wishing to prepare a light evening meal.
To the back of The Old Chestnut Tree there is a lovely garden which Cecile is happy for guests to share.
Breakfasts at The Old Chestnut Tree provide an excellent start to the day with freshly baked rolls, a variety of jams, marmalade, cheeses and cold meats as well as fruit, fruit juice, cereals, yogurt and eggs. Tea and coffee are also provided.
Our stay in August (2019) was our second stay at The Old Chestnut Tree. My partner and I cannot recommend this bed and breakfast highly enough. Definitely 10/10.

We had a wonderful stay at the Old chestnut tree bed and breakfast. It is located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood. There are good restaurants within 500m of walking. The bedroom is equipped with a tv, coffee machine and mini bar. The living room has a nice seating area with a tv and wide collection of books. There is a dining area and also a fireplace.
In the morning we were served a delicious breakfast. There were lots of options and the host could also prepare some scrambled eggs on request. The Croissants were amazing - just like the ones you get in Paris.
Our hosts were hospitable. They are wonderful and kind people. We loved their recommendations for the restaurants and things to do. Cecile, our host, ensured that we were comfortable and enjoying our time.
We had a wonderful stay and we would love to go back to the Old chestnut tree bed and breakfast another time.

Cécile is very welcoming; she ensures that she makes everything as perfect as possible. The Breakfast is a healthy highlight to the beginning of every day. Super and crisp freshly baked rolls and croissants. She is French after all!! Great attention to quality and detail. Nothing is too much trouble. She is forthright with her critic of the local eateries and restaurants and she will be 100% accurate in her summations. Very refreshing!! In a addition to your bedroom, complete with Nespresso and a quiet fridge and bathroom, there is a sitting room with Netflix to end the day with. You cannot go wrong. Jazz is our new friend. Ring Cécile to find who she is!

Room tip: Your are the single guest. Only one room.

We had a fabulous time staying with Cécile. The house is immaculate, and you could not ask for a kinder and more helpful host. There was plenty to do locally from a wander through town to some mini golf down the road to a beautiful day’s kayaking from the centre of town. A really fantastic place to stay.
