Degn Brøndum thought that running water and hot baths were unnecessary, since the hotel was only 200 metres away from the beach. When swimming in the ocean was good enough for him, then why should it not be for others as well?
In the main building, where the oldest parts date back to 1874, you may therefore find showers and toilets outside the rooms while bathrobes and washbasins are in the rooms. All rooms within the main building were thoroughly refurbished in 2008.
Trolles Hus, Finnens House and Anchersvej 8, all of which are small Skagens Houses, are all en suite.
In the Admirals Yard from 1915, built according to the same design as King Christian X and Queen Alexandrines "Klitgården", you will find 11 rooms with bath while the remaining 13 have washbasins.
Televisions may only be found in the Blå Stue (Blue Lounge) and Anchersvej 8. The hotel is generally characterized by Degn Brøndums ascetic lifestyle, where only food and drinks as well as culture were thought to be important.
