We chose this hotel from Trip Advisor. It is situated about 17km from that disappointing town of Isafjörður, and you reach it via a tunnel, whether you are coming from the Isafjörður or Þingeyri directions. One of the other reviewers has said it is at the ‘end of the world’ an in some ways Sudureyri feels like that. On the other hand it even has one-way streets which makes it a little difficult to find.
It is a fairly new establishment and the young couple who own/run it have been building it up. You get the impression that there is more to do – e.g. TV racks but no TV in rooms, and as yet no Wi-Fi. Rooms are of good size (we were in an annexe over the road), and nicely furnished (natty designs). The hotel was amazingly good value for Iceland. We did not have dinner there, but the breakfast was adequate, with a good selection of bread and cold meats.
There are nice walks round the village with the fishing harbor, market etc. You can drive or walk to the end of the harbor and feel that it going straight out into the Arctic. At the end of July it was light all night, despite being just below the Arctic Circle.
