So, yes this is on the edge of the village, but still the scenery is remarkable, with beautiful mountains all around. We had a small cabin, which was nice (although other reviews suggest the larger ones are better still). I'd recommend the cabins over the hotel rooms -- we had originally booked the latter, but were put off by the... More

We (2 adults and 2 children, 8 and 10 years old) just got back home, after spending 11 amazing days in Iceland. One night, we stayed at Brimnes cottages in Olafsfjördur. All the cottages are lakeside, surrounded by snowcapped mountains. It is beautiful! Everything you need is there and so is the hot tub on the porch! I would definitely... More

since years we are for 14 days at Brimnes Hotel. We are 4 - 7 fishermen from Switzerland and are very happy to stay there for our fishing-holidays. So we have "our lake" in front of the house and also have the possibility to fish on the sea. We prefer to cook ourself in the cabin but also have sometime... More

The owner was very kind & helpful. The cabin was large with kitchen, and one master bedroom on first floor, with five more beds on the second floor looking outside with a lake and gorgeous mountain view. Such a lovely place !

We stayed in one of the larger cabins and loved it. it was very clean and the hot tub was a highlight. There isn't much to do in this town so keep that in mind. However, there is an awesome swimming pool that kids love just a few minutes walk from the cabins. I would come back here in an... More

The photo didn't really reflect the actual location of the cabin (in the middle of the small town) and the directions to get there weren't very clear. The WiFi was poor. No blackout curtains. But it suited us and the price was reasonable. Great view of the mountains from the hot tub

Such a beautiful location! The cabins were very comfortable. As there were only two of us, we got the smaller cabin. The kitchen had all the appliances we could need, and was very clean. The hot tub was definitely the best part! It was very private, with great views of the water. Nothing beats sitting in a hot tub, watching... More

After a very pleasant greeting and fast check-in by the owner, we were shown to our cabin. Perfectly situated right next to the lake Ólafsfjarðarvatn and with a great mountain view the cabins were very appealing on the out- and inside. The interior was very spacious, cozy and clean. The bathroom could have a little bit bigger though. The kitchen/... More

We stayed here for nine nights in one of the cabins. The manager, Asta, made us feel very welcome and managed to fit us in when we arrived a day early and did everything she could to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Can't wait to go back next year!
