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

The cabins were absolutely perfect, the comfort, the beds, the jacuzzi, the location, the calm and quiet of the place, everything was perfect! The welcome from the lady at the desk was wonderful! There is a supermarket really nearby to buy some groceries, so it's very convenient. We will go back for sure!! We loved that place!!

There are so many reasons one should choose Brimnes Hotel when traveling in the north of Iceland. It has beautiful cabins in front of a lake, all of them surrounded by mountains. It's a perfect place to see Northern Lights. Each cabin has a private hot tub that you can use anytime of the year. But, I have to say... More

A last minute booking for an overnight stay in the chalets at Olafsfjordur turned out to be a treat. The little row of pine log cabins is administered from the hotel over the road and although the quoted image of a cabin on the waters edge is strictly true, it is misleading because the “water” is a dead-end tail off...

Stayed here as part of a road trip around Iceland. We arrived at the hotel after popping out of the tunnel from the adjacent fjord. We left by popping into the tunnel into the next fjord. Whilst there may be other roads in/out this gave it a nice feeling of being nestled between the mountains and just the right balance... More

We stayed just one night as we were heading west, the cabin was very comfortable and the hot tub was soon put to use as we watched the sunset! Very quiet location and somewhere my wife and I would stay again.

Even we payed for a small cabin they gave us a bigger one. Staying there was comfortable with all equipment we needed. The cabin is just by the lake with a wonderful view on mountains. And the hot tub outside gives you a real Icelandic experince :-)
