I would recommend this place for its incredible location as well as the service and comfortness. You feel you are in a remote place but at the same time you can make it yours and feel like home. Thank you!

The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. The hot pot on the terrace faces a lake and the staff proposed to lend canoe. It's an ideal place to visit the region from akureyri to olafsfjordur, for it is well located, and it's ideal to rest a little. The cottage is cosy, with 2 separate rooms. We found salt, coffee, chocolate,... More

This accomodation is really wonderful. I was the tour leader of a group of 18 people and when we arrived to this location, we were really exited: the wooden bungalows are very nice and situated in front of the lake. Moreover there is the possibility to use the kayaks for free... Really recommended!

Our stay at the Brimnes Cabins was fantastic. The cabin was well appointed, and the location looked like it was out of a story book. We stayed in a family cabin, which had a bedroom with a full size bed on the first floor and 5 twin beds in a sleeping loft (accessible by a steep staircase). The first floor... More

The cabin was mostly lovely, but the cabins are not as secluded as they appear in the photos online. There are a lot of other buildings, cabins & hotels around them and across the water from them. The inside of the cabin was clean, although some of the cups had been used and placed back into the cupboards without being... More

We rented the middle sized cabin on the water. It was perfect! Clean, charming and had everything we needed. The front desk person stayed late for our arrival, which was very helpful. She was also very kind. The hot tub was great, although its more of a hot bath since there are no jets. We took out the free kayaks... More

The house was clean and comfortable, perfect for 3 people, there was 1 double room, one single rooms and a sofa bed. We had to drive back to the hotel as we thought the door wouldn't lock with the key provided, but it was just a matter or raising the handle while locking (we had no idea!)! The back door... More

The staff was very helpful and nice! The view from the house was amazing. We could take the boat onto the lake which was also really nice. There was plenty of fish, we heared. And we saw little fish in the water from our cabin. The house was a little bit dark. But it was not annoying, also the kitchen... More

we were 4 friends travelling together, and had booked 2 days at Brimnes, which was a fantastic place to stay, quiet, nice and clean, enjoying the view and the mountains from the jacuzzi. We can recommand a daytrip to Siglufjødur and Dalvik, the staff could guide us to museums, sigths and cafes. And even help with the laundry. Go for... More

We found the place very quiet and peaceful and nearlly whales seeing. The hotel was kind and the restaurant was very tasty, specially fishes. The hot spa outside was one of our favorite moments. We left no yips for housekeepers.
