The place is very very beautiful. It is in the coutryside not far from the city of Hofn. The floor of the room is particolar made of small black plastic stones. The room Was big and with a beautiful view on the coutryside. Breakfast Was good but there isn't no chocolate food. The personal of the hotel Was Kind. Suggested.

We stayed in Brunnholl for two nights, our room was surprisingly spacious and the beds were comfortable. The hosts were friendly and gave us information about the area, the location was good and we didn't have to travel far to visit nice hiking area by the glacier. We didn't have a chance to dine there but we tasted their home...

Nice setting, rooms cozy enough, functional, but walls very thin. You get to know the neighbors "personally". Breakfast included, but not overly exciting, have had much better at other b&b's. Fair access to Hofn.

We loved our stay. Big rooms. The breakfast was excellent, the dinner as well. My clothes were wet, they had them washed for me! They booked a glacier walk for us, we loved it! Great place to stay. The owner is very present and very nice. The place is far away from any Town, it is a good thing they...

We were greeted by Sigurlaug with a smile and a friendly welcome. She accepted us with a last minute reservation, we were lucky. The room was clean, the rain shower was perfect and the view of the glacier was breathtaking. She has tea and coffee anytime you want, you can sit in little nooks with couches and games while overlooking...

Want to preface the review by saying that the accommodations are adequate, and the good is not bad. It is when you take into account the amounts charged for everything - then it becomes a different ballgame altogether. Yes, after having spent nine days on Ring Road - we are well aware that Iceland is on the expensive side. However...

Decent, clean, efficient - but considering the fact that Iceland offers a breathtaking beauty, this guesthouse makes no special effort to make the best of the surroundings's natural resources. Nothing bad, nothing particularly good. Try to avoid the buffet dinner - (difficulat as there are no special attractions nearby) quite expensive and middle quality.

We stayed one night in a lovely room. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. The room and entire property were spotlessly clean. We had a delicious buffet dinner which offered fish dishes, lamb, ham, beef lasagna and VEGETABLES! We had sweet potatoes, salad, pickled beets, which were heavenly. The Icelandic meat soup and vegetable pie super delicious. My man had chicken...
