We really enjoyed staying at this B&B. The Best we have tried so far. The room was a good size with very comfy beds and everything else that you need. Furthermore everything was very clean when we arrived and was also cleaned everyday we stayed there. Every morning a nice breakfast was served with the best coffee I have ever had :) One evening we also enjoyed the lovely garden which was like a private oase. We really loved it here and will definitely comeback back!

We were thrilled with this accommodation. Cecile, our hostess, was charming and so helpful with tips on where to go and local restaurants. The bed was extremely comfortable, a coffee machine was provided with all types of coffee, tea as well and also soft drinks and water for free - never had this before. We even had to ask Cecile to stop filling up the bowl of chocolates provided each day as we feared for our figures! The old house was decorated very stylishly and the bathroom was brand new. We ordered our breakfast each night from a very lengthy list and it was excellent. It was much nicer to stay here than in an impersonal hotel. Highly recommended.

Everything was good or better than good :o)
Good location with off-road parking, and handy for a pleasant riverside stroll to the town bars and cafes. Fine building and well-appointed rooms. Excellent hosts and a lovely breakfast. What more could we want? Well some quality beer from a good microbrewery would go down well. Guess what, Silkeborg's cafes came up with the goods! We really enjoyed our stop-over; thanks Cecile :o)

Everything you need -and a little more! Cécile is an excellent host, the room has anything you could think of, everything is nice and clean, and in a tasteful design. Breakfast is personalize to you needs and wishes. The only minor down side a the noise from the street.

Thank you very much for your review and feedback regarding the street noise issue.

Dear Marie,

Bed & Breakfast The Old Chestnut Tree is not located on a main road, but close to a recreation area. Nevertheless during the spring time and the summer season, groups of young people walk by the street, they can sometimes speak very loudly when passing by. Furthermore, motorcycles can also be a problem. They all do not seem to be aware of the disturbance they cause in our neighborhood.

I understand that this can be a somewhat annoying issue for our guests. It is also the reason why there are earplugs for sleeping in the room to reduce disturbing sounds.

I am very sorry about any inconvenience caused.

Wonderful accomodation, very nicely maintained, excellent design.
Cecile is an excellent host. The Breakfast is outstanding.
The only drawback is the noisy road the bedroom faces.
Otherwise You couldn't ask for more.
