We stayed at the 'Old English Lodge' for one night on our way to the Snaefellsness peninsula. We stayed upstairs, where rooms have 2 twin beds, a small sink, and a shared bathroom. The rooms were small (we left extra luggage in the car) but clean and comfortable, and the shared bath/shower was nice (the hot water does not smell like sulfur here). They had free wireless internet in the main part of the house.
The main part of the house (dining room, living room, and upstairs bedroom) are original to the house, and have a very charming character & a great history. The hotel rooms w/private bath are newer, and we didn't explore these. The hotel is run by the same family that has owned the house for 3 generations, and they are very good and take pride in their work. The dinner was excellent (I had the fish, my husband had the lamb). I think there was also a vegetarian option. The breakfast buffet was a little more limited than other places, but still quite good, with toast, ham, & cheese, tomatoes & cucumbers, skyr, and a couple different cereals.
The hotel is a 10-15 minute drive from Borgarnes. There is a cute little waterfall within walking distance that we enjoyed after checking in. Overall, we had a great stay.More
