The hotel

The island's first seaside hotel

Melsted Badehotel is Bornholm's first seaside hotel, founded in 1932. The seaside hotel has a special place in the hearts of Bornholmers and has been considered one of Bornholm's best. Over the years, it has been a local focal point and has undergone a renaissance after the renewal of the bathing hotel in 2022. Today, location, view, gastronomy and hospitality meet each other, and when it all comes together, you have arrived at Melsted Badehotel. Read more about the history of Melsted Badehotel here

In the Best Location

Melsted Badehotel is like something straight out of Badehotellet on TV2, a real seaside hotel and Bornholm's first, in the island's most beautiful location directly on Melsted Strand on the outskirts of Gudhjem. Melsted Strand is a peaceful sandy beach with its own jetty, dunes, wild nature and an idyllic river within walking distance of Gudhjem. This is Bornholm at its best. Here, between the distinctive Bornholm rocks and the wide, white sandy beach, you will be truly pampered. Find more information about the seaside hotel here.

Seaside hotel idyll

Bornholm's first real seaside hotel is steeped in history, and the relaxed, homely cottage atmosphere invites you to come back year after year and meet for a dip on the cozy jetty in true seaside hotel style. Here, classic seaside hotel idyll meets Nordic minimalism in a perfect extension of the heyday of seaside hotels. All rooms at the seaside hotel are individually decorated with beautiful references to the hotel's period of origin with classic Danish design furniture, historic wallpaper and high panels.

The restaurant at the water's edge

The culinary experience in the restaurant is one of the highlights of your stay. Here, gastronomy, atmosphere and hospitality come together. The restaurant has the most beautiful panoramic views of the Baltic Sea both inside and out and is just a few steps from the water's edge. Here, the entire Bornholm pantry comes into play when our experienced team of chefs with Troels Madsen and Daniel Kruse at the helm - and you will experience classic quality craftsmanship at its best. Find more information about Troels Madsen and Daniel Kruse here.


Our restaurant is based on classic cuisine with Danish-French traditions. For lunch you can enjoy Bornholm-inspired dishes with innovative open sandwiches, a menu of the day and a selection of seasonal blackboard dishes. In the evening, you can choose à la carte or one of our wonderful menus - the large signature menu or the water's edge menu, which changes daily based on seasonal ingredients. As a new feature, we have also introduced a hotel menu for overnight guests, which changes daily, because there's nothing better than eating here at the water's edge after a day full of adventures around the island.

Mornings here at the seaside hotel start with our delicious breakfast buffet, which also varies daily with local specialties, fresh fruit, vegetables and berries, small hot dishes and homemade pastries. Read more about the restaurant and menu here.
