My wife and I stayed in Liselund Slot Ny for one night last week and it was magical. The manor house/ "castle" would be better called a bed & breakfast than a hotel. It's the type of place for people looking to step into a different, more genteel place and time than a homogenized box of a room from an international hotel chain.
Closely integrated into the grounds of a national park, Liselund opens onto a lush lawn leading into well groomed paths that meander through beautiful woods, finishing at the Baltic's beaches below. The white cliffs of Møns Klint is a nice hike nearby.
The manor home itself has been nicely restored and updated, with an emphasis on preserving the best of the castle's historic past while nicely updating the rooms to a comfortable modernity.
As a sole proprietorship, Liselund's owner was responsive, friendly, and personable and we enjoyed several nice chats. Since this is not a chain hotel, there are no corporately-mandated fake smiles; I imagine that the owner will be friendly to those that are friendly - that was certainly our experience. To others, perhaps you reap what you sow.
I have read the other reviews criticizing the food and it sounds like they went to a completely different place. The food we had was wonderful. The cook, Inga, made incredible fresh bread each day (you have to have the lingonberry/rhubarb jam).
Again, this is not the type of bed & breakfast for someone looking for a standardized, blancmange stay. Rather, it's a wonderful place for a simple, quiet respite from a busy world. I hope it won't be long before my wife and I return!
Make sure to contact the owner in advance to make reservations and to set an arrival time.
