We have done our best to restore Hotel Bretagne as it would have been in the heyday of the seaside hotel, when well-off citizens flocked to Hornbæk, a jewel on the North Sealand Riviera – also known as the city of light.
We have reduced the number of rooms slightly, in order to make all bedrooms en suite and make room for some beautiful, spacious deluxe rooms and suites. So today we have 23 beautiful rooms decorated in the best Gustavian style, most offering views of Lake Hornbæk and the sea. We are delighted to welcome you to Hornbæk and our beautiful seaside hotel in North Sealand.
Our restaurant offers a wonderful, panoramic view of Lake Hornbæk. Adjacent to the restaurant is the largest of our three terraces, from which you can enjoy dinner throughout the summer.
Have you ever drunk wine that made your food taste better, and vice versa, so that the various nuances and elements combine in tasteful harmony? This is exactly what we are aiming for every time.
We spend a lot of time and energy on finding the right combination. Sometimes a creative approach is required; at other times we need to adjust the dish very slightly in order to achieve perfection.
The important thing is to create a balance: neither the wine nor the food should be too dominant; instead each should complement the other and help to highlight elements and nuances.
Our wine list is always tailored to our menu, but you also have an opportunity to tailor the wine yourself. Our wine list offers a good selection of wines from all over the world, primarily France and Europe (since we like to uphold tradition to a certain extent!).
We hold regular Winemaker's Dinners during the year, in which we typically invite one producer to show off and talk about their specific wine. We have turned this on its head to some extent, in that our Head Chef, Kasper Larsen, then adapts the food to match the wines. Given that we traditionally start with the food and then add the wine, this is a fun, exciting challenge for us. If you would like to join us for a Winemaker's Dinner, follow us on facebook, where details of events will be posted.
It's like being part of the Danish television programme "Badehotellet" in the real world. Great food, wine, service and atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again

Definitely a beautiful, pleasant place. Hotel Bretagne has been renovated perfectly in the style of a seaside hotel, with beautiful wallpaper and tall panels in the corridors. We were there for a wedding, and it was the perfect setting for a celebration of love. The food and wine were really good, and I would heartily recommend the location for any occasion. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

I have visited a few beautiful hotels both in Denmark and abroad. There's no doubt that Hotel Bretagne is in a class of its own! An extraordinarily high standard of gastronomy, an authentic seaside hotel feel, and service in a class of its own. The fantastic location simply completes the picture of an extremely beautiful hotel. Strongly recommended for romantic weekends, conferences with a difference and atmospheric smaller weddings.

We have just stayed at Hotel Bretagne in Hornbæk. Recently renovated in the most beautiful, cosy style – a true seaside hotel environment. Lovely, good-sized rooms, comfortable beds and a beautiful view of Lake Hornbæk. All staff were friendly and accommodating, and the food was unusually good and came with delicious matching wines. Heartily recommended – we will be back. :-)
Hotel Bretagne is a new jewel. With its good menu and beautiful rooms combined with the personal service and atmosphere – all that remains is to be happy and say, "Until next time". You will enjoy the place and the atmosphere of the place. It is also suitable for smaller meetings.

As soon as you step through the doors of Hotel Bretagne, you sense a genuine interest in giving guests a fantastic experience. The menu was fantastic, and the recommended wines went perfectly with each dish. I could write a whole new chapter on the breakfast. Beautifully laid out in an appetising manner, and unbelievably tasty. I couldn't point a finger at the food, the service or the hotel decor – all were executed with a feel for quality and detail

Tasteful decor inviting peace and harmony surrounded by beautiful nature. A wonderful dinner with good ingredients created with love. The staff were service-minded and focused on the customer, and a feeling of wellbeing topped off our visit. We will be back!

We had no expectations or knowledge of Hotel Bretagne in general, so were greatly surprised when we stepped into a beautifully decorated hotel with a lovely smell of paintwork and new wood. Staff were friendly and service-minded and the food and wine were top quality. Hotel Bretagne is balm for the soul, and a place we intend to return to.
— Max & Birgit
Really lovely, newly renovated hotel in the best "seaside hotel" style. Good service, truly delicious four-course menu, very well-chosen wine list. Fantastic view of the lake and Hornbæk. Certainly not the last time we will visit "Bretagne". Great value for money. Heartily recommended.
— Henrik Røn
Their wine list is wonderful from start to finish ... staff were nice, very friendly and helpful ... overall everything was extremely stylish ... I recommend a tour around the lake ... not the last time we will visit this place

We went for dinner in this newly renovated and newly opened hotel at the end of March with my husband's work. It was wonderful to see how beautifully the new owner has restored this historic Hornbæk hotel. The food and wine were fantastic, and the couple who run it extremely nice and service-minded. Definitely worth a recommendation, and we are already planning our next visit. :)
— Helle KG
Lovely, beautiful place that has just been refurbished. A fantastic, beautiful setting. The three-course meal with matched wine list was FANTASTIC. Heartily recommended, and the location is good in regard to the town of Hornbæk.
— Marco Larsen
The food is top class, the wine list is both high quality and comes in appropriate amounts, and the location with a view of the lake is good for the soul. The quilts were a little warm for this time of year, but otherwise both the room and the rest of the hotel was very tastefully decorated and pleasant. The staff focus on making sure guests have a good experience, so they were attentive to us while we were there.
Fantastic place and food and surroundings. Great service, nice place. Lovely food. Good food. Lively, competent service. Lovely rooms. The surrounding nature is beautiful. Definitely a place worth visiting. To be recommended. Experience this place in spring, summer and autumn.
