Hotel Flatey is situated in the centre of the old village on Flatey, in the very heart of Breiðafjörður. The houses in the old centre are timber structures dating from the island’s former times of prosperity, and most of them have been restored in their original style.Nowhere else in Iceland can you find an urban setting where the atmosphere of the past has been so faithfully preserved.

There is actually a small comfy hotel in this small island. The island itself used to be a very busy one in the old days, enough of food in the sea and the air (birds). A great place to stop during the day (between ferries from Stykkisholmur to Brjanslækur) and walk (no cars allowed). Good hotel accommodation if you wand to over night and the restaurant is suburb for local food (mainly fish)

It is wonderful visiting Flatey. The old houses have all been restored in the old fashion way, painted in wonderful colours. The paintings on the walls and ceiling of the local church is a masterpiece. The oldest library in Iceland is behind the church. Birdlife is fantastic. Hotel Flatey ís very nice with very good, old atmosphere. Food at the restaurant outstanding. Worth while spending one night at the hotel. Enough time to discover this tiny island.

We spent 1 night/2 days here last summer. Travelled with 3 kids 18, 8, 6. It was like stepping back in time. Staff was great and accommodations were charming. Great experience. Amazing scenery and bird life. Off the beaten path (if there is such a thing in iceland). Well worth it. Chef in the hotel was very good.

First, you must know if you visit Flatey Island, there is very little to do. The island is very small, you can walk around the entire island in 20 min. The bird watching is fantastic. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful island simply to unwind and catch up on a book then this is the island for you. My husband and I enjoyed sitting in the restaurant, drinking wine and playing cards. The food was delicious, room was really nice and the bed was comfortable.

Some of my most memorable travel experiences have occurred on small islands. Flatey was definitely no exception. From the moment I stepped off the ferry I knew that this would be a special night. The hotel is charming, beautiful, serene. Our room was on the water side and I could lay in bed and watch ducks swim by under the midnight sun just a few meters from my window. The staff was very friendly, and the food in the restaurant was really good. Nothing was inexpensive, but it was completely worth it. Keep in mind, the island itself is very small (you can walk the length of it in less than a half hour). To enjoy your stay here, you need to be content with entertaining yourself by meandering about, watching birds and sheep, reading, or chatting. For those that want to take a break from the world and slow down, this is a magic place to do so.
