We really enjoyed our stay at the Snaefellnes. The location is perfect, with fantastic view and very pleasant walks. We wished we could stay for a longer time. Breakfast was a good spread of slices of cucumber, tomatoes, red pepper, boiled eggs, cold cuts of ham and salami, a few types of fish, freshly baked bread, cereals, juices, coffee and tea. Watching the sunrise as I ate breakfast as it lit up the surroundings was really the highlight of my stay. The air is so fresh and I enjoyed looking at the Icelandic horses at the neighbouring farms. The room (100 Euros for double) with the sea and mountain view is very nice and comfortable, clean and spacious. The bathrooms are nice, with fluffy towels and shower gel and shampoo are provided. We didn't have dinner at the restaurant as we found the prices steep but enjoyed a more affordable meal of delicious fish soup (with chunks of fish, prawns and scallops) and home made bread around the corner at the Kaffihus Hellnam. It does not have a sign so you have to look out for this old building but it is very charming inside. They close at 8 pm so you need to be there early.
