We drove here straight from the airport and the front desk staff were nice enough to let us check into our room before we were scheduled to. That was a bit of a lifesaver, since we'd arrived very early in the morning and were exhausted. The room was very comfortable though a bit stuffy and the breakfast in the morning... More

This was the best hotel we stayed in while visiting Iceland. The room was quite large and the heated floors were great. The rather expensive buffet dinner had a large selection of meats and salads, all of which were quite good. Having dinner and breakfast in the hotel was very convenient, especially since there are not many places to eat... More

The room we had was fairly basic but what do you expect when it's the last hotel for a couple of hundred kilometres? It was however clean and warm with a pretty view. The restaurant serves an excellent lamb fillet for dinner and the buffer breakfast has plenty of choice. There were some renovations to the reception when we visited... More

Off in the side of the mountain, quite and cozy, The view of the water in the distance was serene . Dinner was good the staff polite. My only draw back was the hot tub,was luke warm but the sauna as steamy.

I didn't want to stay in Vik since I wanted something more remote on the way to Hofn. This place was very cozy. It isn't fancy, but it is warm, cozy, and has steaming hot showers. It is a combination motel/hostel in the sense that there is a shared living room and then an indoor hallway of doors. We didn't... More

Recently stayed at the Hotel Hofdabrekka for a 3 day hiking excursion in southern and southeastern Iceland. Rooms were clean and spacious and modern. Modest overall but perfect for a good night's rest before a day of hiking or trekking. Lots of connections with local tour guides and very convenient location/proximity to almost all of the sites in the area.... More

the hotel is set away from the town of Vik. The rooms are very clean sizable and modern. The meals are good and the staff very polite and helpful. My only gripe was that the hot tub was too cold to go into. OK it's the middle of November, but still. Turn it up guys. Recommend anyone to stay there.

The room is nice. We had a wonderful sleep and a lovely breakfast the next morning. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We got a warm welcome when we checked-in and they are always happy to answer my questions about Iceland. We are happy to find this nice place to stay. Great value for money!

This was far and a way the best hotel experience we had in Iceland. Lovely staff, good rooms, excellent food, facilities. We checked in quickly, relaxed in our room, enjoyed the bar, had a lovely meal and indulged in the Geothermal Bath and Sauna. All around a lovely relaxing night.

Loved this hotel. First place we stayed in Iceland and it was worth it. Enjoyed the outside hot tub, just sitting in the hot water and cold air made me feel great. The restaurant was very nice and tasty. Breakfast is well worth it. Lovely location, and very comfortable.
