The old Billund Kro has recently been remodeled and is now called REFBORG. The new design is tastefully done, adding rustic and contemporary elements. It feels fresh and cozy at the same time.
One day after a Connect Billund meeting, I popped in with my colleagues to see what the new place looked like. (I’ve since been back for a couple of meals) On one side of the hotel is a shop, or ‘butik’ in Danish. This butik carries wonderful gift items like food and home accents. The choices are beautiful, and many of the foods are specialty items not found in our local markets.
We enjoyed a nice coffee break and were given samples of some of the shop’s treats.
If you’re in town, definitely pop in and do some shopping. There are great gifts for hosts and hostesses. I’ve done a little shopping there myself.
The restaurant, or spiseri, has also been remodeled, and is a lovely place for a cozy lunch with a friend or a nice dinner out. I’ve had a lovely cheese plate for lunch with a new friend. The cheese plate was beautifully done. Dinner with friends was cozy and service was friendly and helpful. We drank lots of their bubbly and enjoyed a nice dinner together. The atmosphere helps make the night with friends feel more special.
Eating out in Denmark is not inexpensive, so having a place with beautiful decor and nice food makes it feel more worthwhile when heading out to eat. I’m happy we have an aesthetically pleasing place in Billund. I wish them well and am excited for what they have accomplished.
