We stayed here while exploring the region for two nights. The rooms are pleasant, and the staff is very helpful. I really needed some clothes washed after 2 weeks on the road (and only planning for 10 days clothes...). They offered to wash some for me, and had them back 2 hours later -- at 10PM. Breakfast is very basic,... More

The location of this hotel along the waters edge has beautiful picturesque views. The hotel itself had friendly staff and cosy rooms that were clean, although, rather dated. The restaurant at the hotel offers delicious seafood, done to perfection. The breakfast was adequate, so no real complaints. There is a fish smell due to the fishery next door, but hey…you... More

The positives first: Grundarfjordur is a great location for exploring the Snæfellsnes peninsula. The room was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful even offering to wake us if the Northern Lights became visible. Free wifi was also available. Negatives: Location beside the fish factory. Also breakfast was very basis with a limited selection.

hotel was next to a fishing factory, so it smelled like fish everywhere. rooms weren't clean, the pillows were stained and did not have pillow covers, so we had to put our own clothes on top of the pillow as covers. breakfast is not "scrumptious" as the hotel claims, it's very basic. dinner at the restaurant was good. hotel staff...

We spent two nights in Hotel Framnes when touring round Iceland. Grundarfjordur is a great place to travel round the Snaefellnes peninsula from so Hotel Framnes is an ideal base. We enjoyed the friendly welcome and our room was a cute little L shaped room with a sofa and small desk/dressing table with chair. Bathroom was functional - the shower... More

We enjoyed our brief stay here. The room was clean, the bathroom fine, the breakfast plentiful, and the evening meal we had there was very tasty. Our room faced the water, where gulls were squabbling over the spill-out from the fish factory, while the street side of the hotel has a good view of Kirkjufell. Yes, the hotel is next... More

I stayed here a couple of years ago and returned as it is a lovely place. Comfy rooms, if a little Ikea basic! Rather annoying fixed shower attachment above and draughty shower-curtain blowing over you. Otherwise comfortable and clean. Tasty food in the restaurant (I had a nice fish soup) and reasonable breakfast. When I stayed before in March the... More

We stayed at Hotel Framnes for one night in September, on a brief stopover in Iceland. The hotel is comfortable and very clean, and the room was small. I had a room on the third floor so that was a bit less convenient for hauling my luggage all the way up the stairs. I had a nice supper in the... More

We spent 2 nights here in room 324 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bed was comfortable and the room was a pleasant temperature. Furnishing was simple and the shower a little on the claustrophobic side, but the shower delivered a great flow of water. There was also a small sofa. The best part of the stay was undoubtedly the excellent... More
