Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 September 2013

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?

Room Tip: It is probably worth exploring the more recently renovated rooms in the two old buildings across the...

Whilst our 4 week trip through France had me in dreamland I almost doubted the ability of Denmark to deliver an equally enthralling experience, however there is one overnight stay that will last forever, Falsed Kro, in the village of Millinge, Denmark. Apparently it started life as a smuggler's Inn (because of its proximity to the ocean) and in 1744 Count Reventlow was granted a royal licence to run a public house. And now in 2013 the bar has been truly raised. The gardens, the ambience, and the gastronomic delights of this wonderful country Inn had us both 'pinching' ourselves.I have never experienced such incredible courtesy and service or for that matter the food, the bar and of course our room had me marking the Falsed Kro Inn 10 out of 10. No point in me saying anymore because you may think I am a 'little over the top!' OK, just put this place on your bucket list and stop dreaming, just do it!

A magical serene inn with food deserving of a Michelin rating. Whether you order the 8 course menu with wine pairings or the moe simple four course menu you are in for a treat, albeit an expensive treat, but one you will never forget. Even the Multi course breakfast is "to die for."

Room Tip: Ask for a garden room

It is no wonder Fyn was the native island of Hans Christian Andersen... staying at Falsled Kro is nothing short of a fairy tale. Many of the "Inn's" buildings date back to the seventeenth century, and are white with characteristic thatched roofs. Falsled Kro is situated in a lush and green part of the Danish countryside. It lies across from a charming port- during the summer it stays light until after 11 pm and from the amazing restaurant you can see the sea, sailboats, and a small unpopulated island. Per Hallundbaek is a world-class chef and we were spoiled by his inventive and delicious dishes (the menus change 8-10 times per year). He is also extremely kind and accommodating. We were lucky enough to stay at Falsled Kro for many days during a combined business/family/pleasure trip (we have stayed there many times before) and they even cooked a range of special dishes off the menu, supplemented by herbs and vegetables grown in their large vegetable garden. The kitchen excels at classic Northern fine cuisine such as (home) smoked salmon and caviar, but more experimental dishes (pigeon with foie gras, oysters with bone marrow and roasted croutons, fried poached egg with local smoked eel etc) were similarly memorable and delicate. The rib-eye we tried was second to none, and so was our specially ordered sole! The French trained sous-chef who cared for us when Per was off is a talented and rising star. His innovative Steak Frites (he made a selection of freshly made chips, fries, and mashed potatoes) and the accompanying sauce Bearnaise with a twist were some of the best we've ever had. The cheese selection is excellent and diverse, featuring a wide array of French and Danish cheeses that even my French stepfather was impressed by. Creme brulee was excellent, and so are the small chocolate truffles and eggs served with coffee/tea from their nearby chocolate factory. The wait staff (many chefs in their own right) are very kind and professional. Christian went out of his way to help when my fiancé and I wanted to visit nearby Faaborg (he drove us and picked us up) and offered to help us arrange sightseeing and kayaks. People at the front desk are nice and helpful, too. The rooms are spacious and light, many with small patios where it is possible to eat breakfast (which includes very delicious fried quail eggs and local organic specialities). The attention to detail is also great- along with chocolates on your pillow you get poetry and Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales. Bathrooms feature a line of high quality (and organic!) products. Some other reviewers have commented on the prices but I think you get a lot for what you pay for (and Scandinavian countries are more expensive than most other countries in Europe.) This is currently the only Relais and Chateau hotel in all of Scandinavia. Sadly, the hotel world in Denmark seems to be trending towards anonymous conference hotels, so charming gems like Falsled Kro are increasingly difficult to find. The only thing the place is lacking is a Michelin star or two.

I should have read more of the reviews. I drove quite a distance to stay at this prestigious property. Rooms are quaint (if you stay here ask for #6), service is competent, food is focused on set menus of very professionally prepared items. Quality is fine but being boxed into what the chef wants to cook today is not my thing. That and and the price of the room requires me not to suggest you stay here.

Room Tip: Room #6 is single story (not double where bath is downstairs from sleeping) and has a lovely patio

Falsled Kro maintains is top level is food experience, great atmosphere and high-level service.
The experience is world class, hard to compare, but their price level is on the very high side, also compared to other similar places.
Unqiue and great, but you need dollars, many dollars.

I was disappointed by the quality and service at this Relais and Chateaux. I expected a lot more out of the big price tag per night. It's not cheap. Over $500/night and does not include breakfast!!! Over-priced for what you got. The setting was nice. Near the water in a very quaint town. But nothing to do. You have to rent a car and go for a drive to see the area and get to a town where there are restaurants and shopping, about 20 min away. The room was okay but not practical. Nowhere to put your stuff in the bathroom and your luggage ends up staying in the middle of the living room cause its loft style with bed and cupboards upstairs but stairs are too narrow to bring your suitcase up. We had room no. 4. We had dinner both nights in the hotel and it was disappointing. You were offered no selection and some of the dishes were repeated the next dinner! They basically told you what you were eating and when. The night before they want to know what time you are having breakfast to make it easier on the kitchen. I'm on holidays, I don't know know what time I will be waking up! Dinner was very expensive and so was breakfast. Not worth the money. Breakfast was the exact same thing both mornings. No choice was offered. There were many little things they could do to raise the standards and thereby make it a better experience. For example, we stayed in early september and it was chilly. They had a fireplace in the lounge and I only saw it lit once and it ended up dying and not relit again. There is a great firepit outside which they could have lit and arranged chairs around so that after dinner you could sit outside. But it was never lit. We had no one to help us with our luggage when we arrived, nor when we checked out. They charged for water and there was no mini bar to speak of and there certainly was no fridge to keep the drinks cold. No movie offerings on tv, which isn't a big deal normally but when you are paying this much money, you want a lot of comfort and services. No spa facility whatsoever.

Room Tip: Try finding a hotel in the neigbouring town of Faaborg. It's a great little town with shops and...
