I spent just one night at Siemsens Gaard. I was looking forward to it. The location looked fantastic - and it is - right in front of the little harbour at Svaneke. From the brochures it looks enchanting but the experience is a disappointment. To say I was greeted at reception is perhaps overstating it. "You are early" - well yes I said would you like me to come back later - perhaps I could just leave my things at reception? "Just wait there". This experience involves standing - there are no seats in reception. After about 20 minutes I was told OK we will see if it is ready. A key was found and we went across the courtyard to the room. There was various shouting at a cleaner in Danish. I could see the cleaner was preparing the room. I said that is fine. If I could just leave my stuff here or at reception I will come back later. But no I had to wait while the cleaner was berated to speed up the process for this room. The room was pleasant enough - a little dated and many of the rooms are very close to the main throughfare down to the harbour - so those on the outside could be quite noisy. I was fortunate to be slightly inside. The gates appear never to be shut and neither do the doors to common areas for the appartments even though there is a separate key so I felt in high season security could be an issue.

My abiding memory of Siemmsens Gaard was staff smoking. Where I parked my bicycle, where I parked my car , outside the restaurant. Whenever and wherever I went staff were having a cigarette break. Two cleaners even remarked on it when I saw them a second or was it a third time - "O we're here again!" indeed they were.

I booked a ticket for a concert that evening elsewhere on the island so I wanted to eat early. I sat and waited the waitress smiled at me but never came to take my order. There were no more than 3 or 4 tables occupied. I continued to wait. Eventually after half an hour the waitress came. I asked to order a meal. The waitress pointed to her watch it is nearly whatever time it was you must wait for 1 hour. I explained I could not and that I had been waiting for over half an hour and I had a concert to attend. I explained that I had seen people come to tables while I was waiting and be served a meal - that was all I wanted too. Rather than be helpful the waitress was rude and told me to go somewhere else, which in the end I did and found a simpler cafe where the service was far more what you would expect from Denmark and Bornholm in particular. Oh yes and who did I see both as I left to find a cafe and on my return in the evening after the concert ? All the kitchen staff having a cigarette break.
With service like that - save your money there are nicer places in Svaneke to stay even if the location cannot be matched.

Siemmensens Gaard Hotel guests can gaze into the lovely little harbor in Svaneke on Bornholm's east shore from their tables on the wide veranda of this old, well-maintained hotel. The restaurant serves Danish fare in elegant portions. The rooms are comfortable, clean and modern. The hotel is close to a variety of galleries and shops.
