1.6. Membership tier and points
When a membership profile has been created, the member will be given the tier level, ‘Friend’. The member will rise in tier level based on the accumulating number of nights stayed at our hotels. To be upgraded to a higher tier level or keep your current tier level, the following number of qualified stays are required at Guldsmeden Hotels during a 12-month period beginning from the date on which you joined the loyalty program ('personal member year’).
The member can increase from Friend – Best Friend (6 nights), Best Friend – BFF (21 nights), to BFF – Soulmate (50 nights).
If a member is inactive for more than 365 days since signing up, the member will lose their given Friend of the Family status (Friend, Best Friend, BFF, or Soulmate) and move down one tier level. The lowest tier level is Friend, no matter the amount of inactivity.
The membership tier level is valid for the year in which the member qualified as the given tier level and the following personal member year. However, if the member has been inactive for more than 24 months (2 years), the membership profile will be inactive, and all points will be lost.
1.7. Earning points
Members will earn one point per 1 DKK* spent at one of our hotels, except for Eyja Guldsmeden. The hotels included in the loyalty program can be found in the Hotel Appendix List.

Please note that it may take up to 48 hours after check-out for points to be credited to your account balance and visible on your membership profile. A member is individually responsible for one’s own points, and these points cannot be transferred to another member’s profile.
Please be advised that points will not be awarded for any nights spent at our hotels prior to becoming a member. If a member forgets to sign-into their membership profile when booking an online stay, points will not be awarded.
