The story behind
A BEACH HOTEL BUILT OUT OF LOVE FOR THE CITY
The ideas behind Strandhotellet originated in 2014, and now, 3 years later, we are proud to open up the doors on July 2, 2017.
The hotel is owned by husband and wife Steffen and Marie Louise Ebdrup, who lives in Aarhus, but who has a great deal of love and veneration for Blokhus and Northern Jutland.
With a desire to create a hotel with respect for the location, there was only one option, and that was to build an exclusive beach hotel. Jørgen Ussing from UBN arkitekter has created a classic building that melts into the beautiful architecture and nature in and around Blokhus. The building contains references to the danish beach hotels of the 1920 and 1930s, but it has all the facilities that are expected of an exclusive hotel in 2017.
Strandhotellet was at first designed to have 10 rooms, but the need for more rooms soon became apparent, and so we have expanded it into 38 lovely double rooms and an apartment in the historic Chancellery House.
We want Strandhotellet to become an attractive destination all year round, with a restaurant, orangery, seminar pavilion, wellness, fitness and lounge.
Strandhotellet is located right in the heart of Blokhus. Today, the town is a thriving holiday destination, which has developed into becoming one of the pearls of the Danish west coast. Since the mid-19th century, Blokhus has been a tourist attraction to which Danish holiday guests have flocked in order to enjoy the fresh West Coast air.
The town is still a popular holiday destination throughout the year, as Blokhus’ scenic beauty draws people from near and far. Blokhus is a town that has gradually developed from being a well-known fishing and market town into becoming the centre of one of the most charming holiday destinations of North Jutland.
