Seamen's home

A good cause

"More than a hotel" is more than a slogan to us. It's our goal. We want to be a place where everyone can come by for a cup of coffee, some food and maybe a good talk. Every week we visit then children at the Childrens Home, the inmates in the prison and we arrange  childrens days during summer.
As a Seamen's Home seafares and fishermen has a special place in our heart.Therefore we've hired a sou-chef Simon Søvndal, whos special responsibility is our missional and diaconal work on the harbour as well as in the city. Besides this we're visiting the harbour on a regular basis.
All our profit goes to welfare for seamen and fishermen in Greenland and Denmark.
