There were very few buildings in this area. The best-known was the Bryggergård (Brewer’s Yard), which dates back to the 17th century. It housed the families of employees of Kastrup pottery and tile works. At the beginning of the 20th century, Petersen converted the house and made it a permanent residence for himself, his wife and 11 children.
Kastrup Bank was founded in the Master’s Room here in 1903. Banking activities were operated from the house until 1927. The house has had several enterprising owners over the years. In addition to the bank, it has also housed a smithy and a rye bread factory.
When I took ownership on 1 September 2006, the house was inhabited by one small family. Many rooms were not in use and I knew I would have to put my back into refurbishing and refitting the building to meet contemporary hotel standards.
I and my dedicated team of diligent staff have together created a highly professional boutique hotel with a unique atmosphere. We do our utmost to make our guests feel at home and to make their stay at Ocean Hotel unforgettable in every way.
