Rungstedgaard: Providing service for all, from big to small

Located In North Zealand between wooded parkland and the Øresund, the Rungstedgaard hotel and conference centre is in Rungsted Kyst, just half an hour from Copenhagen. The hotel is based around a former manor house with views over Rungsted Harbour, and has facilities for meetings for two to over 400 people.

Created around a house built in 1917 and renovated in 2011, the Rungstedgaard hotel and conference centre has 60 meeting rooms of all sizes and types, from early 20th century elegance to modern design.
“The meeting rooms have different styles of furniture and lighting, suitable for a variety of types of meetings, and we can accommodate small groups up to conferences of 450 people,” said hotel manager Stine Gregersen Kold.
While all meetings have AV and IT support, food and beverages and all the expected meeting supplies, the hotel also works with a teambuilding company to provide meetings that are as much outdoors as inside.

Support at the right scale
With a focus on staff training, Kold makes sure that all members of staff can provide a professional level of support to clients without having to refer questions up to management: “We make an effort to provide the same levels of service for an informal meeting of two people to a conference for several hundred over a number of days.”
The Rungstedgaard is a large building, but Kold and her team aim to keep it homely and cosy – what she describes as hygge – so that a large group feels looked after but a small group won’t feel swamped.
“We believe we can provide the feel of a boutique hotel but on a large scale,” Kold added.

Staying at Rungstedgaard
Easily accessed from central Copenhagen by road and rail, the hotel has 141 rooms with up to 300 beds, These range from standard and superior single and twin rooms with views over the atrium or the surrounding forest, through forest rooms in a purpose-built wing amongst the trees, to suites with a living room and bedroom and a view over the harbour. Guests have access to the fitness room and spa and can even borrow bicycles to explore the surrounding area.
“We collaborate with other local hotels to provide additional accommodation for larger meetings,” said Kold.
Priding itself on a higher quality of food than at many conference hotels, Rungstedgaard’s team of chefs cook from fresh ingredients. Meals range from breakfast and lunch buffets and Sunday brunches, through evening meals in the restaurant, to banquets and wine tasting events.
