Very friendly staff, who are happy to speak English and accommodate GF diet requirements. I didn’t have a beer spa and as the snow outside is about a meter deep I avoided the outside hotpots. Definitely stop in here if your in the Dalvik area.

We came for dinner, 4 adults and 3 children.

We have been to the restaurant twice before and had an outstanding experience on both occasions. Unfortunately this was about to change.

One member of the group ordered the horsemeat steak. When asked how he wanted it done, he requested medium rare but got it well done. There was no waiter in sight so he ended up taking it to the reception. Granted, he got a new and very good steak, but not before we heard the same discussion at the next table.

But the next problem turned out more difficult. The children's menu has a rice porridge course with Icelandic liver sausage (lifrarpylsa). Unfortunately each portion was less than a third of a regular children's meal. The porridge was just 1-2 regular spoonfuls and the sausage slice was just 3 tiny cubes.

The children ended up eating their fill of French fries from other plates.

When we left to pay and mentioned the issue with the children's portion we were rudely told that this was more than enough for many children who came there.

We will never come again.

We weren’t sure what to expect from a beer spa experience but we loved it. Nice modern clean facilities and a nice wooden tub with early stage warm beer to soak in. It smelled good not like warm beer. And the beer tap to pour drinks while soaking was excellent!!

We just returned home from a two week tour around the entire island of Iceland including the West Fjords, and while getting to Bjorbodin was a long drive, it was very well worth it.

We had somewhat of a scheduling issue with our original appointment, and the owners bent over backwards to help us make it work out. We were already going into this visit with high regards for our hosts. We also had some luck with gorgeous weather.

We enjoyed a Kaldi black ipa (seasonal) in the hot tub outside overlooking the water, mountains, and sunshine. Then we cooked in the sauna a bit before retiring inside to sit in our vat of beer. The beer spa itself was nice and relaxing, but truly the hot tub outside was just as nice. ALL of the beer was excellent.

After all of this, we relaxed in the relaxation room before using the clean and refreshing shower facilities.

Finally, we enjoyed the burgers... extremely good burgers. We came home with beer soap and lotion.

This whole experience was, in my opinion, better than the tourist infest Blue Lagoon. And to be honest, while the beer tub was unique and the beer was excellent, it was the hospitality of the owners, and sharing the peaceful and relaxing time with my wife that made this my absolute favorite stop along our journey.

I hope one day we get to go back, but for now, I'm thankful for the memories we got to make here!

The moment I found out about this I added it to our trip itinerary. We were driving the entire ring road anyways, what's a little detour? We showed up early as is recommended, checked in, and where given our robes. We showered and went for the outdoor hot tubs and sauna which were a welcome break as our average daily temps were quite cold thus far in our trip. Once summoned my wife and I were taken to our room (clothing optional btw) where a spacious beer wort filled tub awaited with two glasses and a tap ready for the imbibing. After the relaxing soak we were guided upstairs to the relaxation station where we were laid down and swaddled in soft cloths while listening to soothing sounds in the background. I promptly passed out. After heading back downstairs and dressing we decided to have another pint from the bar which led to us having dinner there. The meal was amazing as was the service. I highly recommend trying the horse steak. It was amazing. Our hostess Urđur was so friendly and had great recommendations for our meal and for the rest of our trip.

What a fun experience. Outside in the hot tub first ~ snow all around but warm in the water admiring the views. Then into our bath a warm beer bath with beer on tap. If you know how to pour; lots of lovely cool local beer with just the right amount of head on the beer. Used the beer scrub and hair balsam ~ 30 minutes passed so quickly. Then upstairs to the relaxation room to dry off and relax on the warmed beds. Washed the beer off next morning ~ skin and hair felt fab. I had meant to get my son some beer products but was outside admiring the view before we left. Receptionist was not mega friendly but rest of the staff made up for that. We hired bathrobes ~ which as we did. It get the blankets in the relaxation room was good. Very different and lots of fun ~ would deffo do again

You start off in a lovely hot tub outside. It is only a few cold steps and then nice warm water with a beautiful mountain background. Then you go inside and sit in a wooden beer barrel hot tub filled with unfermented beer. They make sure to tell you its beer that is not fully processed and to not drink it. You know they have to tell you this warning because of Americans. There is a tap right next to the hot tub filled with the final version of beer that you are relaxing in. The tap is part of the experience. After that we ate in their restaurant where I had the Icelandic Horse. It tastes delicious! It is better than beef but tastes similar. It was nice to get some real meat like this, as I feel like your only options in Iceland are lamb, cod, and arctic char. None of my family had the heart to eat horse but they were missing out because it was amazing and I still think about how good it was. My fiancé ordered a beer flight consisting of 8 beers with 6-8 oz pours!
