On our way through jutland, we stayed one night at Svanfolk B&B -- great location (close to Aalborg, but still out in "the country" with a ton of options for walks or biking) and a warm and friendly welcome.
We stayed in an en-suite double room, at the end of the hall -- it was quiet, meticulously clean, and very comfortable. The decor is very simple (I was a initially a bit put off by the undecorated hall and doors leading to the first-floor room)s, but the simple style of the room is charming, and the sitting room is full of books (about travel, biking, music. A bottle of water in the room, and a radio were welcome touches, too. No tv in the rooms. Free wi-fi worked great, though. In the binder in the room were a number of biking routes in the nearby area, with detailed notes and suggested stops, and a listing of restaurants in nearby towns.
It's often hard to sleep in the summer when the sun seems to never set, but the louvered blinds on the windows dimmed the room dramatically. It was quiet and even though we discovered there were other guests (by the multiple tables set at breakfast) we didn't hear a peep from anyone else, except for the very friendly cat.
Breakfast was simple, but included soft-boiled eggs and fresh rolls with the other 'standard' breakfast items, and my husband appreciated the full pot of french-press coffee.
The whole stay was lovely -- very low key, very homey, very comfortable. I'd definitely recommend it!

Thank you so much for your kind review - it was a pleasure having you stay with us. I would, however, just like to comment on your remarks regarding 'the undecorated hall' - the walls in this hallway are of a brick finish, which have been treated and then painted. This is a very popular and traditional form of decoration here in Scandinavia. There is also a large piece of artwork on the end wall. You also mention that there are no TVs in the rooms and this is correct. As many of our guests are nature lovers and like the tranquility our place has to offer we have no plans to install TVs in the rooms. There is, however, a TV in the guest lounge and our large deluxe double room also has a TV. We really appreciate your constructive views and you will be very welcome again next time you are in Denmark.
