It's probably the best chain in Scandinavia and the hotel was modern, fresh, and felt very comfortable. The rooms were cleanish (I found some old socks from a previous guest, and the vacuum doesn't always reach the corners), but bright and cherry. It has the expected Scandinavian feel. The children loved the rooms.
I was surprised that not even the "superior" rooms had a Sofa. We had hoped we could have a room where we could sit as a couple while the children slept... but that was not to be.
Breakfast had outstanding quality ingredients, even if the staff looked as though they wished they were somewhere else. And the one day the breakfast room had someone who seemed like she enjoyed her work (and did know what she was doing), she certainly didn't care about her guests.
One receptionist shouldn't have even been employed by a service business (come on Mr Manager... surely you know that)... but then the other receptionist was just wonderful and made all the other issues disappear.
I'd definitely stay again... I liked it overall... but I did feel let down by the staff.
Location was great... we had two days in legoland, and there was plenty to do in Kolding for a family as well.
