We stayed an the vestmannaeyjar island for one night to discover the landscape and the puffins. Once we arrived we were pleased by the beauty of the island and looked for our hotel. The staff was very friendly and your room was really large and clean. We had a good sleep there and the breakfast was alright. The room was a bit old-fashioned but lovely, like everything on this island. I guess this might be the nicest hotel to stay von vestmannaeyjar.

After arriving with Herjólfur at night it was no trouble finding the place. Reception is common with Hotel Vestmannaeyjar, the hostel itself is just around the corner. There was some sort of a building site in the front lawn, it is a good thing that the property is expanding! We were woken up by a sound of a heavy machinery doing the building, however we were about to go explore Heimaey early in the morning in the first place, so what. Common areas are nice, bathroom sufficient and kitchen well equipped. Maybe a bit messy, but as with every facility of this type it's more about other guests than the owners.
All in all I am very satisfied with the service and their friendliness and helpfulness! I definitely would stay again and maybe I will, there is a plan for the future visit and also I am curious how the property will look like after reconstruction!
The only downside may be lack of sockets in the room, however to a place like this you travel light, don't you...

We have checked in ourselves in late night hours in the backhouse of this hotel. I noted that the place looked like construction site. On Saturday morning around 8am the bick truck parked under our windows and concrete-mixing truck started his shift. Construction workers all around, I was just waiting when the wrecking ball will come through our room :-) It was my most interesting morning in all hotels, it was very funny to meet the workers in the restroom,in the kitchen,... I have to give 5 of 5!!!

The Hotel Vestmannaeyjar (also known as the Hotel Thorshammar) is centrally located in Heimaey and an easy walk from the ferry. The hotel has a very good and fairly modern restaurant on the main floor and offers spa services as well. The rooms are a little older, but have a kind of beach hotel feel - a little older, a bit worn down, but clean and perfectly serviceable.

The staff was great, and we did some horseback riding and hiking, all basically accessible right out of the door. The restaurant is definitely worth a meal - it isn't cheap, but probably has the most upscale food on the island and was delicious. All in all, a great hotel.

Just returned from our visit to the Westman Islands. This hotel is centrally located in downtown making it a great choice when looking for accommodations. This hotel also offers an onsite restaurant and spa. Many eateries/activities are located within seconds of the hotel. The hotel staff was very friendly and stand ready to assist you in planning your stay on the island.

Further details on the hotel can be found on their site hotelvestmannaeyjar.is
Activities for the Westman Island go to vikingtours.is

Your trip isn't complete without trying a Rib Safari ribsafari.is

Enjoy your visit!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the harbor so that you can get a view of the harbor/island.
