Falsled Kro

Falsled Kro is the only Relais & Chateaux hotel in Scandinavia and I was very excited to see how good it could be.

Falsled is a small Danish town in the island of Fuhen and after a three-hour drive from my home in Thisted, I arrived in this peaceful place to a warm welcome. They gave me a home-made welcome drink before the receptionist escorted me to the room. That’s the first of many details I loved about Falsled. After your welcome drink, you’re escorted directly to the room and no credit card, passport or signature is necessary. Everything is organised before arrival.

I stayed in Suite number 14 and it was lovely with a unique design that gave that local feel of a place. It feels like you’re in the countryside of Denmark and not anywhere else. The welcome amenities couldn’t be better. A bottle of champagne, a taste of the kitchen and finally lovely Summerbird chocolates. Some hotels offer you chocolate you have tasted many times before, but Falsled Kro provided the exclusive Summerbird chocolates, that is quite spectacular. Another detail I loved it. The suite also had it’s own fireplace and the only thing I didn’t like about the suite was the hard bed as I prefer a soft, comfortable one.

The majority of guests in Falsled Kro is Danes. Around 40% is foreigners, but that should be much higher. Falsled Kro is famous in Denmark but deserves to be famous globally as well. One of the problems is that the Michelin guide only covers Copenhagen in Denmark and it’s in my opinion very unfair. My dining experience in Falsled Kro was memorable in many ways and I can only hope Michelin will cover Fuhen as well. What made it memorable was the attention to details. First, a drink and appetisers at the bar before they escort you to the table. I found many details I haven’t seen in many of the fancy hotels around the world and while everything is pricey, I wouldn’t hesitate to call it value for money.

Overall a fantastic experience. I wondered how we could have a Relais&Chateaux in Denmark because the required level is very high, but I’m proud to say this is one of the bests. An experience to remember and visit again and again.
