Far, far away from everything Sep 20, 2011
It had been a long time since I had been out driving on the countryside in Jutland, but I had a meeting with a vendor far away from my office but back in an area of Denmark that I had come to know and like quite a lot some years back when I lived with a girlfriend from this region of Denmark.
As a Copenhagener this area was known as a place where the crows are turning as we say. I had heard that this place was quite close to the city that I had to be in the following day but quite close means 9 kilometer away and there is absolutely nothing else nearby but fields and cows, but luckily there was also a restaurant, where I could have my dinner.
I parked my car in front of the main building of the large inn and I entered the reception that also served as an entrance for the restaurant. I waited for a short while before the receptionist was there; I got my key at the same time as a couple entered the restaurant. I therefore could not help smiling of being back in this region and the way that they address you here. The man asked the waitress if she had a good steak; she replied very fast that she had so many that she was also selling them.
I took the car and drove to the buildings some 100-meter from the main house. I was given room number 28 and I was able to park just in from of the entrance. The room was not impressive at all; there was nothing wrong with but I don’t think that much has changed since the 80s. When I entered there was a small room where I could leave my suitcase and a small closet. There was also access to the bathroom and this was kept in some colors that had not been popular since the 1980s as well; I could not help laughing at the green toilet and sink.
The main room had a good size but it was a bit dull. There was a large bed but it was two single beds together which is quite common in Denmark but quite annoying. The bed was as such okay. It on of the corners you had a small table and two low leather chairs. There was a small desk and the possibility to buy Wi-Fi access in the reception for 35 dkr or 5 euro. There was a small TV in the corner that only had 7 channels where of 3 were Danish, 2 were German and the 2 last ones were English speaking (Eurosport and CNN).
The hotels restaurant was quite okay but not a gourmet restaurant as they state themselves. They served an okay lobster bisque and a nice fish main dish that was a bit too salty to my taste but the chef might be in love. There is an old saying that if the food is too salt then the chef is in love.
