It was a pleasant stay at an old castle with a lot of history. The building and surrounds are beautiful. Internally, the decor is quite dated and looking at one of the reviews dating back to 2015, I do not believe the decor has changed at all. Service was friendly however quite haphazard. We had booked as a group requiring 6 rooms. With many written communication confirming our group booking and requirements, upon arrival a few of our room reservations was dropped off. Though the staff at reception was very friendly and corrected the issue straight away. Food was okay with slow service. Rooms are located on the ground, first and second floors. There are no lifts, therefore if you have difficulties going up or down stairs, request for a ground floor room. All in all, it’s a beautiful castle in a beautiful location. With historical buildings no doubt it comes with many stories. We’ve been told spirits roam the castle, room 23 and one of the hallways.
Unfortunately we only had one night here. It was a magnificent setting. We had a room in the main castle building and everything was very comfortable. There were no tea making facilities in the room but they served us tea downstairs. It was lovely to walk around the outskirts of the moat. We sat and watched the numerous swallows flying low over the mown grass. Delicious food in the restaurant and lovely breakfast. The staff were great.
This was our first stop before heading to the south of Denmark. Bringing two small girls to this castle was an amazing experience. Kokkedal has everything you want from a true castle, it is a beautiful building surrounded by a moat and even have an armor welcoming you. The restaurant is how a classic castle restaurant should be with chandeliers and white tableclothes. The room was perfect! We had a family room with a seperate room for the kids with a canopy children bed. The main room had a beautiful canopy bed and a seating area. This hotel is great for a short stopover to experience a castle like we did. It is an exciting experience for kids or a romantic getaway. However the smell of fertilizers was very strong in the evening and the only drawback we had on this stay. We also recommend the hotel to have electricity for car charging at a lower rate, it was the highest we experienced through our trip in Denmark.
An amazing and unique castle hotel in a fairytale wooded park setting. The castle has a full, water-filled moat. Our room was a suite that was outstanding and royally decorated, recently upgraded and restored, and very ideal for families. Upon request I got permission to view other rooms, and found them all to be different and very tastefully decorated, with modern and gleaming plumbing and bathrooms. The castle is close to North Sea swim beaches. Attractive vacation apartments in the side building include kitchenettes, but the castle itself is definitely the most unique and has to be experienced. In my opinion it is such a contrast to big city hotels. We rented a car and drove around to other castles including Gl. Vrå Castle by Aalborg and Hvedholm Castle Hotel on the Island of Funen, driving from one unique castle to another. Surprisingly, The cost is mostly much lower than big city hotels. I 100% recommend this to anybody who is looing for a totally different and unique experience.
I recently stayed at Kokkedal castle and found it very picturesque and with a very romantic atmosphere. My room had a four poster bed and a great outlook over the moat and the surrounding area. The automatic light in the bathroom however, was rather annoying and went on every time I moved.
There is Internet, but due to the castles thick walls, not in my room but available only in the more public areas.
The restaurant had very good service and the food quite gourmet, but not too vegetarian-friendly. This could be improved on seeing many are now eating less meat.
All in all a lovely place, but disappointing to see on my walk that the beautiful woods close to the castle are being used as a dumping ground for both building waste and plant waste.
