Nice position but not a remote hotel as I expected from the photos. They have done a great job with the photos!! In reality it's on the edge of a nice small village, next to lots of houses but with great views of the lake. Using careful positioning we were also able to get superb views of our cabin! Pleasant...

If you like quiet and private spaces, this home is for you. The view was incredible; sheep grazing by the house; hiking trails next door. . . The home was very clean. Everything we needed was there, though, could have used more towels; only one per person. The owner was very supportive and helped to make our stay memorable.

Nice little cabin to enjoy our stay in the north. Great service and lots to offer. Endless amounts of kayaks/canoes to use. Staff was very helpful. Hot tub was amazing to enjoy in the evening after a day on the trails.

We stayed for two nights in one of the waterfront cabins. The Good: The staff were friendly and accommodating. The cabin had a lovely view and plenty of space. It was a comfortable place to relax. The Bad: The cabins were a bit older than I expected. The hot tub was empty and had black algae growing in the bottom... More

We stopped here as we made our way around the Ring Road. There isn't much to do around the hotel, but the scenery is beautiful. They have free kayaks and rowboats for guests to use. We stayed in the main building. Our room was clean and good-sized. There is a restaurant and game room in the hotel. The cabins didn't... More

Supremely kind and accommodating staff made us feel very welcome to their northern paradise village. We especially enjoyed the breakfast, boating and fast wifi. The surroundings are breathtaking. Hint: take the north road to arrive from the west, and prepare to be astonished.

Our family stayed two nights at one of the fabulous cabins of Brimnes Hotel. The cabin was full equipped with all the utilities we could need, very clean and really quiet. The cabins are located by a lake so it's very nice to take a bath at the hot tube and enjoying the views of the lake and the mountains.... More

The cabin and specially the pool was great. It was also clean. The Restaurant is not open every evening; you should clear this in the morning or the day before. In the Hotel you have free coffee and tea.
