Stayed one night and tried tho burger and local beer, they use a lot of material from the farms around and make great local gourmet, meet from the burger from the next farm ecs. We did not try the hot tub but it looked good. I would recommend this place for a short stay the rooms are small but comfortable... More

Hraunsnef is the type of place you either love or hate. My wife and I loved it! This place is a working farm, and if you're lucky, the animals will come over to be petted. The hotel dog, whose name I forget, is more than happy to become your BFF. We saw the Northern Lights here at the end of... More

This hotel was picked for us by our tour company because of it loacation favourable for seeing the Northern Lights. Certainly in this repsect we were not disappointed as we had an amazing display on a very cold clear night in March. The hotel itself however is very basic in terms of decor and furnishing, though everything needed was there... More

Although our towels were not that fresh, this place has very friendly staff and great breakfast and restaurant facilities indeed! There is a small tv in the room with just two tv channels (BBC 2 and an Islandic one). The hotel is next to the Main road no. 1 and located roughly 15 - 20 minutes drive from Borgarnes. From... More

This was our first night in Iceland and we arrived tired and hungry (it is about 20-25 minutes on ring road from Borgarnes heading north) but the couple who ran it could not have been nicer. Our room was small but clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The meal was delicious and a huge choice. In the morning, a... More

The rooms are quite small, but okay to stay for one or two nights. You could see the rooms were refurbished a few years ago, but not with a lot of attention to detail (sloppy painting). I would recommend this hotel for families with young children. They are encouraged to help feeding the animals etc. Conveniently located at the ring... More

When we first walked in, the room looked clean. However, it had a very strong odour and it was quite clear that the mattress had not been cleaned. The sheets that were covering the mattress were clean but in this day and age, a hotel should consider vacuuming hair and other dirt from under the sheets. It just is not... More

We stayed here two nights and used the time to discover the near island Snaefelisnes (about 350 km). It is possible to wander around a vulcano close to the hotel (alongside road 1 in the direction of Reykjavik). It is a good hotel: the rooms are clean, quite and relatively large with a separate bathroom. The restaurant offers good dishes... More

We booked a summer house because there were no hotel rooms left. The house was spacious with a little kitchen and toilet and shower. You can hear cars driving on the ring road but there's little traffic on night. There's a henhouse on the back side of the summer house so you can hear the roosters crowing in the morning.... More
