We have known Falsled Kro since its impressive transformation into a top-rated gourmet hotel-restaurant more than 40 years ago. And we have enjoyed visiting for dinner perhaps half a dozen times over the years. This time was our first overnight stay, in room no. 1 overlooking a small harbour and the sea. We arrived late in the afternoon, on a rainy and windy day, and then enjoyed a couple of hours of relaxation by our own fireplace (just one match was needed to start the fire). More working fireplaces in the bar and the dining room made for a cosy and warm atmosphere throughout the inn. It is easy to imagine how great this place would be in the winter, especially around Christmas, but unfortunately it seems to be closed during much of the Christmas period.
But however much we enjoyed our stay, Falsled Kro does not fully deserve the high ratings and unqualified praise it often gets. The room was awkwardly designed with the bathroom downstairs and the sleeping area upstairs. And for a hotel in this class the furnishing was a bit tired. The wifi is included in the price (as is now standard practice in Denmark), but it was very difficult to catch the signal (apparently a new system had been installed recently).
The gourmet restaurant is Falsled's greatest asset, and the chef does an honest job of presenting you with a number of interesting menus (no a la carte options). But not everything is as refined as you would expect at the steep prices being charged. We enjoyed a smoked cod dish, which was great, but then had duck breast, which compared poorly with the magret de canard served by the average French brasserie.
It is probably difficult to run a top-rate hotel in such a remote area of the country, and there appeared to be only a few other guests when we visited. Might it be because of a disconnect between the high prices and what you get?
