The Location

Located in the sleepy little town of Charlottenlund, only 7 kms away from Copenhagen (roughly 20 minutes by bus to city centre), this is a whole world away from the buzz of the city between forest area and sea.  The hotel is in the opulent suburb surrounded by fisherman houses, overlooking the sea.  On a clear day, you can see the Oresund bridge.

Restaurant Skoveshoved

As vegetarian travellers, we found this hotel served amazing and tasty food from the locally grown produce.  The food that we had were absolute tasty, and there’s a signature element that still linger in our mouth.  Be it the Rye bread, or grilled vegetables with fermented sauce, or the tasty dessert. Very few restaurants have made us feel this way, and Skovshoved tops that. Only downside being the portions seemed very less.

Overall it was a very positive experience, the stay being comfortable,  staff members being very friendly and provided attentive service.  It felt like a home away from home, and the convivial environment just added so much more comfort to the stay. 

This is an ideal choice of hotel for those who want to stay close to nature as well as the city.  Although it sounds like a far away place from Copenhagen, the bus that stops right in front of the hotel takes you to the city in less than 30 minutes.   

Where is the best stay you’ve ever had? 

Thanks to Skovshoved Hotel for hosting us. We were not compensated or asked to write a positive review. As always, all the opinions are our own.
