The bungalows are comfortable and well-equipped; having a bath in the hot tub was awesome, and a tour in Canoe in the bay was a great experience. The staff was very friendly and nice. We would highly recommend visitors interested in a stay in that nice place.

Cabins are big and with 3 bedrooms (up to 7 beds). Nevertheless, the two room upstairs are very unpractical. The stair is pretty ridicolous, 59 degrees steep. Dinner and breakfast of very low quality.

The hotel is a simple combination of a hotel and cottages in a small fishing village north of Akureyri. The rooms are quite simple but clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff members are friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant on the first floor of the building which featured very delicious fish dinners. Breakfast the next morning was in the... More

The hotel offers basic rooms with modern furniture and designed in the way it feels cozy and personal. The downstairs is taken over by restaurant. The food at the restaurant was locally sourced and it was one of the most delicious meals we have had on our Icelandic trip. Staff was friendly and welcoming, and gave us time explaining what...

The Photoshopped pictures in the literature for this hotel don't give you the full story. Brimnes is located on the edge of Olafsfjordur, a quiet, working-class fishing village. As you arrive at the hotel, there are tired-looking 1960s buildings surrounding it, and a 24-hour gas station adjoins the main hotel building. We stayed in the hotel (not the cabins), which... More

Dear Brian, Thank you for choosing Brimnes Hotel. I will admit that some of the furniture is out-dated. But the good news is that we are renewing most of it this year. I encourage you to try our cabins next time. More

To have your own cabin with an outdoor hot tub. Small beds, okay breakfast (not included in the cabins) and reasonable price. Nice if you want to do own cooking or just eat a sandwich after a long drive. You can canoo in the waters rigt next to the cabin

It was a pleasant cottage and the kids enjoyed it much. It is a bit far away from the main attractions but it would be a good choice if you want to stay away from the city and have a relaxing trip. The staffs are very helpful and nice.

We stayed at one of the cabins with a porch and hot tub over the water. You could actually fish from the porch. The kitchen had everything we needed. It also had a TV and Wi-Fi. We used it as a base for seeing Akureyri and flying from the Akureyri airport to Grimsey. We stayed there for three nights. There... More
