Badehotellet is the story about the guests and staff at a beach hotel by the North Sea sand dunes. At the heart of the story is the lives of three young people, the chambermaid Fie, the merchant's daughter Amanda, and the local fisherman Morten. Their fates are intertwined, and their stories are about emancipating themselves from the plans other people have made on their behalf, the attempts on social ascent, and about losing and finding oneself on the way. The series is inspired by the way of life at the many seaside hotels of the past, and reflects our own time with its mixture of financial crisis, denial, and dreams of happiness. The story takes place in the years 1928-33 where the world is falling apart. The characters will go through tears and laughter in the captivating journey that takes place as times change from optimism to crisis. It's a multi-plot-series that dynamically shifts between upstairs and downstairs, and between seriousness and humour. Written by Badehotellet

Charming stories set in the 20-30s in a lovely Denmark seaside hotel
18 June 2016 | by maria-ricci-1983See all my reviews

I was introduced into this series by an acquaintance who had me watch it and I loved it instantly.

It is a "light" TV show set in the aftermath of Danish Belle-Epoque, during the 20s, in a charming, little seaside hotel in the middle of nowhere run by a hateful, miser landlord and his struggling, hardworking wife, with a small entourage of country-side chamber maids and parlour maids.

They host the same bunch of guests every year and their stories get intertwined with those of the local villagers, in a very particular period of European history, just before the stock market crash of the 29 and when Hitler was a rising promise in Germany.

There is a half-comedy, half-drama tempo in the show, and perhaps this middle ground is the issue here: either you like this melange or it won't be convincing for you.

If you like the period and enjoy Danish shows, you will probably like it a lot. The screenwriters are very well known and skilled authors, and although it doesn't climb to the top of Nordic programmes and it lacks a little depth, it is well produced and acted, and the stories have interest for all audiences.

It is an 8 for me.
