About Melsted badehotel

Experience an authentic seaside hotel…

…at one of Bornholm’s oldest hotels. Melsted badehotel is a completely renovated first class seaside hotel with lovely bright rooms, individually designed and overlooking the ocean. Melsted badehotel is superbly located very close to the beach – a lovely sandy beach, which is unique to the otherwise rocky east coast of Bornholm.

Start the morning with the unparalleled view of a Bornholm sunrise and go for a refreshing morning dip on the small pier. Enjoy the complimentary breakfast buffet in Melsted badehotel’s lovely restaurant overlooking the sea. Later you may enjoy a nice lunch and/or dinner or end the day with a drink on the terrace or in the living room.

Surrounded by the ocean and the scenic view you can relax with a good book in one of the beach chairs, play pétanque and croquet while taking in the beautiful grounds of the hotel.

Melsted badehotel is close to the idyllic village of Melsted, just south of Gudhjem.
