The lakes, hills and forests around Silkeborg and Skanderborg are amongst the most beautiful landscapes in DK. Gl. Rye is right in the middle of it all. Convenient location and very good food in the restaurant.

The advertising said 'renovated' : that must have been in about 1970 , and it hasn't been cleaned properly since. Our shower had no hot water. we told the proprieter and we knew he had been in to try to fix it when we were out by the muddy boot prints he left there. Some animal was running around over the ceiling during the night- much bigger than a mouse ! Food was ok, but don't stay there .

We phoned beforehand and was politely offered a special room rate by the owner as we were attending an event being held there in the evening. When we arrived we looked around for the reception and had to go to the kitchen to find someone to check us in. The room we were offered smelled like smoke mixed with air freshener and we asked the receptionist if there was a chance of a non-smoking room. The owner, who had a very busy day, showed up and let us know that she was quite offended that we would ask for a non-smoking room, since she offered us a discount. The owner then offered us another, higher grade room, presumably, according to the owner, bumping someone else from the fully booked hotel to the smelly room.

The upgraded room we got instead smelled better but had broken furniture, bread crumbs left on the table and almost everything that could break was broken. There was mold in the bathroom. The furniture was ages old and even had an old multi-band radio. The two beds were pushed together and were not very comfortable.

The room did, however, have a newer flat screen television, placed on top of a small piece of MDF, and then taped to a tv-stand designed for old-fashioned tube television sets.

The buffet dinner and wine at the event in the evening was quite good and the service was attentive and efficient. Breakfast in the morning was ok, although some of it was not fresh.

Everything in this place, except the food, bears the mark of management that has simply given up. The worn down entry mats, carpets, the messy outside patio with filled ash trays, and holed makeshift plastic roofing, the 30-50% burned out light bulbs along the hallways, the rooms. This could become a very nice place, if someone put in the effort to do at least the absolutely necessary maintenance and cleaning.

Stayed here for one night at the end of August as the other local hotel was fully booked. When we arrived we thought it was an old charming building, however we soon realised that it was in desperate need of some TLC. There is no recognisable reception we wandered around the corridor until somebody summoned on of the workers to check us in. We were then taken to a rear court yard and pointed to the opposite corner to our rooms.
The courtyard was untidy with chairs and tables of various types scattered around under a makeshift awning. The gardens were unkempt and needed clipping as did the grass.
When I entered the room it was surprisingly large, however it was at the same level as the road outside so not very private. The decor was dominated by woodchip something I have spent my life removing from a number of my own properties due to its 70s connotations. The furniture was also quite dated with the bedside table still having a built in radio.
The best bit was the bathroom which had an avocado coloured suite and matching tiles. Again it was a reasonable size but the extractor fan was hanging out of the roof which revealed a relatively dirty hole in the ceiling.
The room had a damp smell to it which lingered throughout the stay and it was an arachnophobic's worst nightmare there were spiders appearing on a regular basis crawling on the walls and furniture. Admittedly not big fat juicy ones, they tended to be of the long-legged and skinny body type.
The breakfast was quite good, a relatively basic selection of meats, cheeses, fruit, cereals etc but sufficient to keep most people happy. The coffee was hot and strong, always a plus point.
It was strange that throughout our stay we had minimal contact with any staff other than check-in and out and when we ordered a beer. There were no staff at breakfast in the morning, which was fine as everything we needed was there but had you wanted anything different you may have struggled.
Overall left feeling that with some investment it could be a great place, its just under-invested and as a result it looks tired and dated.

We stopped in at the Gammel Ry Kro for lunch on a cycle tour of the area. The dining room was very pleasant, as was the young waiter, and the food delicious and cheap (we had the sild plate). The nasty moment came when we got the bill, to discover that we had been charged almost as much for a flask of tap water as we had for the food.

We met this practice a couple of times in Denmark, including in the cafe of the National Museum in Copenhagen. It seems absurd to us - in Australia it is a legal requirement for any establishment serving food to provide tap water free, and it is strange that in a generally health-aware place like Denmark a similar approach should not be taken. Anyway, we would recommend the Gammel Ry Kro, but if you like water with your meal, be warned.
