This is an ideal location. You can sit in your hot tub and gaze at river and mountainside. The cabin is a great size and very clean with everything you need. Staff are amazing and the food in the restaurant is not to be missed. Wish we have stayed longer!!

A fantastic place to stay for our week of ski touring in the Troll Peninsula. It was a perfect set up for us and I would thoroughly recommend it for others looking to take a similar trip; very friendly and hospitable.

We were from a whale watching excursion in Dalvik and Brimnes was an excellent choice of location, only 15mins north from Dalvik. I booked the small cabin for 3-4 but was given an upgrade to the large cabin by the lovely happy lady. The place was spacious, warm and clean. The kitchen was very well equipped and spacious enough for... More

Chalet and cabin's amenities, hottub, view and location are excellent. Staff is very helpful, lots of activities to do in the environment. We had the large 8 person cabin. Had a magnificent view on the Northern Lights. Lovely, romantic place to stay.

We had booked a cottage at Brimnes but had to cancel last minute due to a medical emergency of one of our travelers and they canceled our reservation with no penalty. It really helped us out in a tough time!!

We had an epic drive from Reykjavik to Olafsfjodur but it was worth it to rest our bones in the lovely cabin. We were offered a large cabin despite only paying for a small one. The cabin was very well kitted out- kitchen had all you needed to cook and a large living/dining area with 2 sofas (one for each... More

Excellent! Petty we could only stay for 2 days. The cabin was clean and very suitable. We spent a day up in the north of Iceland for our honeymoon. I would definitely recommend Brimnes Hotel to anyone who'd like to visit the northern tip of Iceland

Great cabin fully equipped - kitchen, sofa, wi-fi, flat screen tv -with hot pool outside. Since it was in winter, all was covered with snow but the experience was great! I took two bath under the snow at night. Pure bliss. Very kind staff and clean estate. Recommended!

We stayed in the large cabin for several weeks in December. It was very clean, cosy and warm and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Both the town and hotel owners were wonderful and hospitable, but we also had ample privacy for a quiet stay. The hot tub on the verandah is something very special!
