Hotel Hafnarfjall
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Borgarnes
Reviewed August 28, 2011

A motel 1 km away from scenic Borgarnes, and a good base for exploring the area or making a stop on the way from Reykjavik to Snaeffelness peninsula. Previously called Venus Hotel, we were a bit wary after booking because we saw not-so-good comments on a couple of guides and sites, saying it was old and worn out. But it must have been renovated as it was clean, new, and sufficient. Spectacular views on the city at sunset. The restaurant offers good local food, even if the menu is a bit short. Buffet breakfast with limited variety (standard one in Iceland). Very helpful staff, made some recommendations for off-the-road sightseeing.

Wow what a fantastic location! The view from the dining room took my breath away the whole way through dinner I kept thinking that I had to take a picture of the sun before it went down over the fjord. Look the other way and there is a huge snow capped mountain guarding the fjord.
Hotel Bru itself was charming, the food in the restaurant was tasty, the service friendly and helpful.
The only reason I gave lower marks for rooms and sleep quality was that I didn't see the rooms (I gave them 4 judging on the quality of the rest of the hotel) because we were camping. We probably would have had a perfect night sleep if we had slept in the hotel but who cares about a little less sleep with that location!
