Historic manor house
Built in 1808 by Christian Paul Scheel, a prominent member of the Judiciary, Scheelsminde manor was turned into a small hotel by the current owner Anemette Bühlmann’s grandparents in 1960. Since then, the hotel has been carefully extended, modernized and renovated. Today, the hotel houses a total of 96 modern and cozy rooms, as well as meeting rooms, conference and banquet facilities, swimming pool, spa and an international restaurant. Still, the manor’s special charm and atmosphere has been preserved.
A green oasis
Hotel Scheelsminde is located in a quiet residential area surrounded by a large park which is constantly being developed and updated to ensure that guests can both enjoy their stay while recharging their batteries for a new and effective work day.

“What we try to do is create a small oasis in Aalborg with a quality-orientated service. We have a lot of regulars who tell us that they feel as if this is their second home and that’s exactly the feeling we try to create. We want our guests to feel that they are staying at a family-owned hotel and not just another corporate chain hotel,” says hotel director Anemette Bühlmann.
Several types of stays
The modern conference center can accommodate more than 100 guests and there are all imaginable facilities. However, the hotel offers several types of stays e. g. gourmet stays and golf stays. You have the opportunity to find what suits you. Whether it is to immerse yourself in the hotel’s library or a bike ride, or something else, the manor house offers a lot of exciting experiences.
