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!

We absolutely loved our stay at Brimnes, brilliant little cabin, with a hot tub!! The cabins are well appointed with great cooking facilities. The location is amazing - we visited over November, and were met with snowcapped fjords, beautiful sunsets and a wonderful view of the northern lights. Amazing!

It was so nice to arrive at night and get into this cozy cabin! We loved the hot tub. In the morning it was a great experience to go out and feel the icy cold temperature, look around and realize you are surrounded by mountains. And the sheep make this place the perfect Icelandic scenario. Bjorg was a very kind... More

So beautiful in October. Snow covered mountains, frozen lake. The cabin was warm and attractive however, hot tub was just a deep, plastic bath and slightly dirty. One ring only worked on the oven and kitchen basics were shabby, dirty. It had a run down feel as out of season. I hate to be petty as the overall experience was... More
