After a scenic ferry ride to the island of Flatey it was extremely pleasurable to come to the wooden, romantic, country style hotel, the staff were extremely friendly and layed back, rooms very cozy and wonderful to wake up to birds singing outside the window. The food was excellent, service was good, a lot of home made goodies like the bread :D Amazing view and scenery, beautiful church nearby with mural paintings, lots of beautiful places very near the hotel perfect for short walks in the breathtaking landscapes with views of the ocean and nearby islands, photographers paradise don't forget your big zoom lens to capture all the stuning birds, I managed to see Arctic terns, puffins, the Eider, Guillemots, Fullmars, Kittiwake, sandpipers, phaleropes, snipe, whimbrel, redshank, swans, geese and so many more :D
