Hotel Hellnar provides quality food and lodging with convenient access to Arnarstapi and Snæfellsjökull.
Our ocean-view (slightly obstructed; see pic) room was comfortable and adequately-sized for 2 adults. We found the window shade did a great job at stifling the majority of the summertime midnight sun. The bathroom was modern, clean, and included bonuses such as a hairdryer and heated tile floors.
The common area of the hotel had plenty of seating with books and information about the surrounding area and Iceland. The restaurant prepared fresh food that might be tasty, but overachieves in replacing the calories you burned during your day of hiking and exploration (read: lots o' butter; Paula Dean would be proud).
Although there isn't much competition in the area, Hotel Hellnar still delivers quality and service as if there were.
