Firstly I am gobsmacked that this hotel has received 5* ratings! Absolutely extrordinary!!! The place has the potential to be a really good hotel (being by the roadside - away from built up areas) but good - it is not. It has a depressing run down feeling to it. Very poor decoration (think dirty walls and skirting boards peeling off)
Paper thin walls
Small awkward room with uncomfortable bed
Bad exterior landscaping (kerb appeal)
Eggy smelling taps (geothermal ??)
I did think the breakfast was ok though.
I can only think the place survives through the passing tourist trade (great reviews???!!!!) and (wholly innacurate - which is unusual) mention in the Lonely Planet guide.
If I were the owner I would redecorate the whole place top to bottom - do some works outside and consider restructuring the rooms. Otherwise there will always be a stream of negative reviews that cannot be buried.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated close to the bridge crossing Borgarfjordur bay, across the water from the town of Borgarnes Hotel Bru provides the simple comforts of home in a cozy atmosphere, a place you can sit and chat as the sun turns the bay first golden, then fiery red. Just a few hundred meters from the main road, Hotel Bru has a homey feel to it, whilst providing the facilities expected in a hotel. ... more less
