This place was so unexpected! You enter a large creatively decorated dining hall furnished with comfortable leather lounges with just a touch of Viking influence. We were given a warm and friendly welcome by the owner/chef who generously answered our many questions about the area and it's history. His wife's family settled in the area 30 generations ago and run an eider down business.
The hotel and outbuildings are only 18 months old and already expansion is underway. The rooms reflect a Scandinavian design in pale wood and white painted walls and interesting artwork. The bed was very comfortable with crisp white linen and soft pillows; we would have appreciated extra pillows. Our room faced the Vogur (inlet) and had a panoramic view of snow-capped mountains; the hotel is in a very peaceful setting.
Dinner was a surprise, our host a qualified gifted chef served succulent local organic lamb perfectly cooked. We even splashed out on a bottle of red, very expensive in Iceland.
This is a hidden gem and worth the detour on the unsealed road.
