Our commitment to local ingredients and organic options is apparent in the breakfast, lunch and dinner we serve. Welcome to our restaurant and bar.


Some consider their hotel breakfast a highlight of their stay, while others want to be in and out as quickly as possible. When you stay with us, we leave it up to you. We offer a wonderful breakfast buffet with a wide selection of cold and warm dishes, including freshly-baked bread from the traditional Dampbageriet bakery right opposite the hotel. If you're looking for that extra touch of luxury, we also serve breakfast in your room.


Our lunch menu features classic and seasonal dishes.


For dinner, we serve a range of lighter dishes including pastas and salads, as well as firm favourites such as fillet of veal, duck and burgers. Room for dessert? Then go ahead and try our popular chocolate fondant!

Club Clarion

Enjoy a glass of wine or a classic cocktail in our Club Clarion bar. The emphasis here is on the music and wonderful atmosphere, and every Saturday from 10pm, we have a DJ.

Palm oil-free food

The Clarion Hotel Ernst is a palm oil-free hotel, which means we've eliminated the use of palm oil in our food. Palm oil is one of the unhealthiest vegetable oils available, and production leads to the destruction of rainforests, which in turn threatens the environment and the animal world. Clarion Hotel Norden is the first hotel chain in Europe to completely eliminate palm oil from its food.
