Hotel Flatey is situated in the center of the old village on Flatey, in the very heart of Breiðafjörður. The houses in the old center are timber structures dating from the island’s former times of prosperity, and most of them have been restored in their original style. The hotel has a very inviting feel to it and special atmosphere. Nowhere... More

Hotel Flatey is the only hotel on the island of Flatey. The hotel was nice. They had friendly service, cozy rooms and a beautiful view of the island. But what really stood out was the food at the hotel. It was expensive but unlike a lot of restaurants in Iceland, was really worth the price. The dinner was delicious. The... More

Me and my family spent the night at this hotel, and we had a very nice experience. The rooms are beautifully decorated. Althought there was one bathroom on the first floor for 3 rooms to share, it was always kept organized and really clean. The food is really nice, and the staff was really helpfull and very warmfull. I had... More

We ate at the hotel restaurant at Flatey and thoroughly enjoyed it. They had fresh char that day and the chef pan fried it. It was served with a small salad and sweet potatoes...though they tasted more like squash. Regardless, the meal was outstanding and I recommend eating there and getting the fish of the day. The quiche looked really... More

This hotel is full of charm located on a small island of 2 square kilometres with some 20 houses painted in bright colors. There is only one car on the island, i.e. the car of the hotel + some tractors and you are being surrounded by many bird. We stayed there on a sunny week-end and there were many families... More

I spent 3 nights in this lovely little hotel. Some of the rooms are on the small side and facilities are shared, so may not suit everyone, but everywhere was spotless. Views were wonderful. The island of Flatey is tiny, it is very peaceful and very beautiful, perfect for photographers. The food was excellent and plenty of it and the... More

The atmosphere on Flatey is magical, with the village still home to Icelanders and the tourists (mostly day trippers) spread out thinly across the island. Bird life abounds and an eider duck was nesting right under our room window! The rooms are charming (furnished with well chosen solid pine from Ikea) and spotless. Our group of 8 took a house...

Beautiful lodgings, amazing views, and beautiful isolation from the rest of the world. Also a great restaurant. Nice staff, and a very quiet location. Not that there is much selection on Flatey, but the hotel and restaurant were worth the trip by themselves.

Staying on a small car-free island, situated in a large bay on the westside of Iceland is quite an experience. Hotel Flatey offers you a typical Icelandic atmosphere. Nice and well-decorated rooms, dining and breakfast and of course great surroundings. Note that the rooms do not have a bathroom and toilet of their own. These are available in the house... More

My wife and I went to Flatey on a day-trip from Stykkisholmur. We were not able to stay in the hotel for the night, but due to the strong, cold winds and our hunger, we spent a few hours at the hotel restaurant. The evening we were there was a special salt-fish buffet at the restaurant. As the only native... More
