Nice hotel with a long history. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Room (mine was not in the main building) was clean, simple and comfortable. Village is nice and very quite but the whole peninsula is beautiful of course!

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel in one of the smallest rooms I have ever seen with a tiny window. The room was very hot and impossible to cool down due to the small window which only opened a fraction. The staff were very friendly but the service in the restaurant was really slow. The meal in the restaurant... More

The rooms are small but very clean and organized. The restaurant is delicious with excellent seafood, fabulous lobster soup and very nice lamb. Breakfast is standard Icelandic fare. Located right on the harbor. Beautiful views and perfect jumping off point for sea angling. Gorgeous drives to other nearby towns. Breathtaking landscape.

Our room was very simple, but comfortable. Ask for a water view. We heard people say they could see orcas. It was snowing when we were there so we couldn't see much. Decent stay. The best thing was their amazing breakfast. They had teh traditional European fare, but also had some delicious porridge and pancakes. Would defininitely stay here again.

We stayed one night at Framnes - down a side street next to harbour and oil tank - room sparse but clean and beds comfy. Only mildly sulphurous hot water but shower room tiny and bit creaky. Hot tub next to car park at rear of hotel overlooking 'docks'. Lots of touristy books and leaflets on offer in corridors with... More

A one night stay in NW Iceleand. Homely hotel with good dinner. Well placed for this part of Iceland. Saw an orca offshore on our way to our stay. Experienced raw Iceland in the middle of summer - winds so strong it was almost impossible to open the car door and then soaked by the rain within a minute of... More

We had a nice sized bedroom and ensuite which was great as we were on a walking holiday and had lots of kit with us. The room was clean and comfortable and we slept well there. Shame that the radiators didn't work properly. We had one on in the bedroom that we couldn't turn off and one in the bathroom... More

What a spectacular stay at the Hotel Framnes in Grundarfjordur, Iceland. A tiny fishing village on the beautiful Snaefellsnes peninsula, you will be warmly received by the most gracious host and owner, Sheilaandd her staff. Our fishing excursion was exhilarating as I caught a huge cod, which was later cooked for our group, to perfection. The gourmet dinner was extraordinary... More

We spent 4 nights here in March to see the orcas and Northern Lights, what a great choice we made, saw both and felt very privileged to witness natures best. We chose a fly drive option and drive from airport was long but scenery amazing on route, in winter would recommend a 4 wheel drive car as route over mountains... More
