We stayed here as a family of four in September on our trip around Iceland. The cabins are clean, comfortable and well appointed. The views to the glacier were amazing. We arrived at night, so getting up in the morning to that view was a real treat. The breakfast had lots of selections and the owner was very friendly and... More

Although 6km outside Hofn, Arnanes, where you have your own cabin to stay in, offers you a good stay in a beautiful environment. En-suite rooms, with a good bed and bathroom. A nice breakfast in the morning completes your stay.

This was stop #2 on our trip around the Ring Road and yet another charming, country hotel. Gorgeous setting, clean, quiet room and reliable wi-fi. We opted to drive to Hofn for dinner to try the Languistine place (delicious), but enjoyed our breakfast the next morning...standard icelandic breakfast fare, all fresh and plenty of it. Highly recommend if you're journey... More

We had a lovely room/cottage but there was nobody the other morning in the restaurant. We wait there with a few other people to eat breakfast, as promised from 8.00 o'clock.. after an hour we left the hotel, without eating and throw the key through the window. Because nobody was there for checking out. Not a good service!

After a very long drive, we arrived at the charming country hotel, which is situated about a 8 minute drive from hofn. As we were exhausted, we ate at the on-site restaurant. As with most things in iceland, it was pricey-but also delicious and seemed to be locally sourced from nearby. Our room was spacious and cozy. The bathroom was... More

This place deserves to be on the restaurant guide as well as hotel. We stayed there after a long and scenic drive from Myvatn. It is remote and we we didn't fancy driving another minute so chose to eat at the hotel. We were delighted with the food. I had the cod, lovely fresh generous portion and extremely well cooked....

My husband and I stayed here for one night in August, and what an adorable inn! We stayed in a cute little cabin and loved it. Location-wise, it is not very close to major attractions, but is a perfect stop if you are on the way to another destination on the South Coast. The dinner was DELICIOUS! Highly recommend you...

We stayed here for two nights, and we found it to be a very nice country hotel. The rooms are on the smallish side, but was bigger than our hotel in Rejkyavik. It was also clean and well laid out with cubby holes, and places to put luggage. They have a beautiful view that is very much worth staying for.... More

Before booking this Hotel I had read in different websites that the owner had a peculiar humor sense and that the Hotel was managed too focus on revenue side. Even with this previous information, I booked and my experience has been horrible. When we arrived, we were said to go to room 21 in the back of the building 1,5... More
