This hotel was in a beautiful setting just off the Ring Road near Vik. The high ceiling in our room made my wife feel like a queen. The breakfast was adequate but nothing special. P.S. "ugaworldtraveler" is just a crab.

He spent 1 night in this hotel in July 2014. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was amazing. I would recommend this hotel. Also, there was a hot tub and sauna which were clean and very relaxing. THe room was located in the South bulding and was very quiet.

The hotel, like many in Iceland, caters to the large tour companies. The rooms are unitarian and well worn. The bed was so soft I could hardly stand the next day. We went to the restaurant for diner. All they were offering was the buffet, which was picked over and not being replenished. The dinning room was full of the... More

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel, where we stayed for one night, to anyone: it's warm, clean, and comfortable, the rooms are large, it has a decent number of amenities like a coffee pot and hairdryer, blackout curtains, tv with a fair number of channels, plus laundry service for 40USD per bag (!), and it has a fantastic view...

Look: Vik will be destroyed any day now. Meanwhile, the Hofdabrekka is a lovely place to stay. Easy parking, clean sheets and whatnot… Great breakfast. I wanted to tell the lady at the front desk that

From the moment I contacted them I found the warm welcome atmosphere from the staff that you look for when travelling away from home. Located few km. from the nearest town has disadvantage for those that want to walk around town but for those that like to be in the quiet countryside, this is the place. The rooms were clean... More

The first appearance might be deceiving and often is. Inside the buildings there are comfortable rooms decorated in knotty pine paneling with comfortable beds and a good WIFI. Outside it was rainy and windy. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast was hearty including make it yourself waffles which always involves pouring too much batter into the iron. Even in cold... More

We stayed here after hiking Fimmvordehals - we wanted a hot shower, a hot pot, and a soft bed. We got all three. The highlight was the hot pot for sure, beautifully situated outdoors, and a great place to swap travel tips with other guests. You can have a drink there if you like too. The room we had (#39)...

We chose this because it was one of the more affordable options between Vik and Skaftafell Park, and we enjoyed the onsite hot pots (with a drink from the bar in hand, gazing out at the sea). The dinner and breakfast were excellent, and the rooms were comfortable enough. The only downside to this place is that it's built for... More
