Nominated for Denmark's Best Seaside Hotel

What characterizes a stay at Melsted Badehotel is the true seaside hotel experience on Bornholm. We are the first seaside hotel on the island, we have the best location here and the most beautiful setting - and we have real Bornholmers at the helm, both in the restaurant and at the hotel, with years of experience. That's why we've been nominated for Denmark's best beach hotel for the second year in a row.

The winter island of Bornholm

October 13, 2023

Winter Island

Autumn and winter on Bornholm offer the opportunity to experience nature and city life in a different way. The island changes character and the spectacular nature becomes more raw. On the winter island of Bornholm, you automatically slow down and find time for contemplation and presence. Put on your hiking shoes and explore the cliffs, coastal paths, beaches and forests, such as Ekkodalen along the beautiful plank path that winds through the valley and hear about "Møller drikker øller"... Ekkodalshuset is open for lunch some days and in the kiosk you can buy soups, coffee/tea or Lumumba to warm you up.

Summer is back

August 22, 2023

Island of Sunshine

Summer is back, bathrobes are back and all our guests enjoy starting the day with a swim. It's also nice to think that summer lasts longer here on Bornholm, both because the rocks retain the heat and because we have more hours of sunshine than the rest of the country. So hopefully we can look forward to another good month of summer.

The restaurant is beautiful whatever the weather, where you'll be pampered all day long by our fantastic restaurateurs Troels and Daniel and their skilled kitchen team. It's almost like being in a "sea movie theater" to sit here and enjoy the view.

On the cover of Gastro

Summer is in full swing at Melsted Badehotel, and the hotel is full of happy and expectant summer guests. According to Gastro magazine, the country's historic seaside hotels are back in great shape, which is why the editors have also visited the seaside hotel in the annual summer edition of the magazine. Gastro visits 4 of the country's best seaside hotels, including Melsted Badehotel, which has been given the entire cover of the magazine.

A big part of being at a seaside hotel is the dining experience. We are so happy that Troels Madsen and Daniel Kruse are now working their magic in the kitchen. That's why it's so nice to be recognized by Gastro, who followed Troels Madsen in the kitchen and appreciated our local connection, the importance of good ingredients and the honest, well-prepared food our restaurant offers for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

A great season!

It seems like yesterday, May 1st, when we stood with butterflies in our stomachs, excited to welcome the first season at the new Melsted Badehotel. Because from there it went quickly. We have had lots of happy guests, both staying overnight and in the restaurant. The months flew by with visits from both new and returning guests. We were excited about your feedback and fortunately we received a lot of praise for the renewal the seaside hotel has undergone. You can read a selection of the many fine reviews here in the newsletter.

Now we're just looking forward to welcoming you all back next year.

Autumn is glowing

 Bornholm has just been named Denmark's best holiday destination 2022 at the traditional and prestigious Danish Travel Awards.

Bornholm is beautiful all year round, but in the fall, when calm descends on the island, there's something special about being here. The colors deepen, the blues and golds increase. The beautiful colors of autumn wave over the woods and meadows, and the sea seems to change color every day. If you think the island closes because the temperature drops, you're wrong.

The best of Bornholm

Bornholm has something to offer all year round and late summer is longer on the rocky island, which you can enjoy at Melsted Badehotel. In collaboration with local actors, we have put together an exciting activity program for the autumn, as we are open up to and including the autumn holidays in week 42. Every Wednesday there is a special activity that you as a guest at Melsted Badehotel can sign up for. See the entire program in our Activity Calendar at Melsted Badehotel

Summer smiles on us

We have a house full of happy guests in the rooms and in the restaurant. We are very grateful for the interest you have shown us. Our terrace with sublime views really comes into its own here in the Danish summer, where you can sit overlooking the beach, the water and the cliffs.

After lunch on the terrace, you can retreat to the tranquil garden and soak up the sun in one of our comfortable sun loungers. A large part of the garden has been left "wild on purpose" to create cozy spaces in the garden and give biodiversity a hand.

What a month

On May 1st, we opened the doors to the new Melsted Badehotel with a new tradition, inaugurating the bathing season here at the bathing hotel with the Big Bathing Day. In blazing sunshine, Bornholmers and guests turned out in large numbers for our opening reception. Thank you for the great interest, your good mood and not least your enthusiasm to see what we have been working on all winter. There was a lot of traffic to see the rooms, the garden and visit the restaurant. The tables were fully booked on the first evening and have been more or less ever since.

The countdown has begun

It is with great pleasure that we have entered the last month before we open our doors on May 1st. Spring is budding on Bornholm, the sun is warming and the craftsmen are working hard. A thorough renovation of all rooms, the restaurant and the living room is nearing completion.

The restaurant, the food and the experience

The dining experience is an important part of the stay at Melsted Badehotel, therefore it is with great pleasure that we have been able to gather an experienced team to run the restaurant. Read about the kitchen style, see menus and meet our new restaurateur.

As part of the thorough renovation of Melsted Badehotel, extra attention has been paid to the details in the heart of the hotel, the beautifully situated restaurant. With the unique location at the end of Melsted Strand, overlooking cliffs, sand, sea and forest, you can enjoy gastronomy in the best location at the water's edge. As something new, you can already now book your table in the restaurant online here on our new website.
