“A little gem - will stay here again”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

I stayed here on business for one night. Having read some mixed reviews I was very pleasantly surprised. I asked for a non-smoking room away from the road and the owner responded within a few hours confirming my request. The room was newly-decorated, simply, very clean and everything worked. Fast (and free) internet access. I ate at the Wittrup restaurant which had wholesome food in a pleasant atmosphere served by friendly efficient staff. Breakfast was simple, but ample and also on a par with other hotels I have stayed at in Denmark often at much higher prices.
I encourage the owners to keep up the level of (good) service and continue their restoration programme. Recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room toward the back of the facility (away from the road).

Thank you for your review. Our renovation program will continue in the coming years. Our goal is to give our guests an experience and not just an overnight stay. We will in the coming years continue to renovate the historic buildings so it will be preserved as something unique.

By the way, you should have a car to get there! It`s place between Copenhagen and Roskilde and a nearest shop is 5 minutes by car...nearest supermarket is closer, you can see it, but should drive to in anyway. Easy to find(with gps - navigator, of course) good place to sleep and eat. Price wasn`t reasonable, about 80 euro for double with breakfast. Breakfast was poor(for Denmark, of course). I can`t say to you, that the motel is good or bad, but rooms are big enough, warm and clean and free parking places everywhere :-) Bathrooms were clean and big too. Towels were. Restaurant suggests american steaks and some more. I ate better, but steaks in this one are good enough. Don`t take hungarian gulash soup, especially if you`re from Hungaria...in this place it`s small pot of soup with little pieces of meat between potatos. Pity, i really like gulash.. when it`s like in Hungaria.

This motel is located about 30 minutes from center of Copenhagen. It is very easy to find and
after check-in, which was very quick, I could park my car just outside the room. The room was very well cleaned and equipped with a little tv, no other amenities. I stayed on sunday night, thus
no service in the restaurant. About 10 minutes away was a great piza place, so I did not have to stay hungry. Very few people over the night so I was not disturbed and with the room away from the highway, no noise to speak about. On weekdays breakfast is included, but it was a disappointment, only very limited cold cuts and little fruits to go along with tea or coffee. Have to say that for such a cheap price but my dog and myself enjoyed the stay....

Room Tip: Rooms away from the highway are quieter, and if you travel with your 4-leggd friend only a small fee...

The Wittrup motel is very easy to fins located right nest to the highway with a bright green sign. We arrived quite late, and the reception left a message to tell us which rooms we are in and the keys are in room. Unusual, appreciated, but ultimately a waste of time as I didn't gt the message until I was back in the UK (home). Nonetheless we arrived sometime between the message and keys being left so itall worked well.

Rooms are motel-style so you can park outside. Rooms are basic, good for sleep. Not much on Danish TV! Bathrooms are small, cramped and quite dark - no lighting to the shower.

No facilities immediately around: I think the hotel has a restaurant but it was either closed or we arrived too late to see it open. Its about a 2 mile drive to find an open petrol (gas) station at 11pm for a beer.

Breakfast wasn't great, quite cramped with limited selection. I felt the price deserved more but then hotels in Denmark range from over priced to very expensive.

Competent for a night sleep and no more.

We always try to provide the best possible service and we wonder that the message we had sent the SMS were received later. But good that everyting succeeded after all. Our restaurant closes at. 22:00. We have decided to upgrade our continental breakfast in 2013.

Basic rooms but the beds were comfortable enough. Unfortunately our room absolutely stank of smoke. There is nowhere to buy beer from within 1km after the restaurant closes. The breakfast was reasonable.

Room Tip: Definitely request NO SMOKING if you are a non-smoker, otherwise you may end up with a smoking room...

We stayed here two nights at the end of July. The room we had was large (52) clean with ensuite shower erc. Type rooms are not in one building but in bungalows around the grounds. Which bungalow has two rooms which have an outside door as well as a door to each room ( great for parents and kids). There is a restaurant which sells good wholesome food. The breakfast bar is excellent if you get there early. O the first morning, after a night of travelling, we got there 20 mins before it closed and there s barely much left in terms of choice. The hotel is close to main road, train stations and about 20 mins on the bus to Copenhagen city centre.
Can recommend this for those with cars but if you want the night life, go closer to city.
The beds were not good if you have back problems as far too soft.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back of the complex are better as not near road.

Just spent a couple of nights here whilst working at Copenhagen airport. Had a van and trailer, so staying in some of the other Hotels in Copenhagen was a little tricky. The van is too high for underground car parks, and the trailer doesn't help when trying to locate parking spaces.

Here though, it was great. They have plenty of parking outside of the rooms, and additionally there is plenty of space around the outside to put the stranger vehicles. The room decor is a little 1970's, but that does not detract from the fact that it is great value for money, and close to the motorway network. Albertslund station is 15-20 minutes walk, and from there just a short train journey into Copenhagen central station.

The place is clean, tidy and well kept. The staff are friendly and helpful, and almost all of them speak English. Breakfast is a fine spread if you get there early, otherwise it can be a little spartan. Did not try the restaurant in the evening, but there were always people in there. This I find is usually a good sign.

I would definitely stay here again if returning to Copenhagen. Well done to the team at Witterup Motel.
