“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013 via mobile

As we drove up the long drive we did not know whst to expect yet were greeted by charming rooms to go along with a charming English waitress at supper. The views are amazing, it's in the middle of nowhere and sitting in the jacuzzi after dinner admiring the view is a must. Overall a good hotel. The best we stayed in on what was otherwise a rather dull trip around Iceland.

We were very nervous driving to this lodge in our small, non-4WD rental car. The road to the lodge is unsealed (gravel road) and long - we were on it at least 30 minutes - and we were concerned about gravel damaging the car. In the end it was fine, and we quickly forgot in any case when we saw just how beautiful a location the lodge is in, with a waterfall just behind. We were greeted by the friendly owner and given a bright, modern, comfortable room looking out towards the sea. Definitely the accommodation highlight of our trip.

We enjoyed two delicious dinners and highly recommend these - we loved the feel of the restaurant (an open lodge type room), the friendly, relaxed and discreet staff, and the food itself, all using fresh, regional produce. We also took a long walk one day, exploring the remote, beautiful nature surrounding the lodge.

Our only criticism was that during our multi-day stay, the room barely seemed to have been cleaned. But this was a detail, and the overall experience was amazing. We would definitely come back.

The Vogur Country Lodge opened fairly recently and is still getting some of the final touches on its building. It is very remote, 1/2 hour's drive along a gravel road from the nearest village, but in a very beautiful location with its own waterfall in back, and very nice and modern facilities. The food was excellent, prepared by professionals with experience in the better hotels in Rekjavik, but our room was not cleaned during our 3-night stay, nor was our table once after we ate there. The lodge serves breakfast and dinner at reasonable extra charges, as well as bag lunches, and the staff are very helpful with ideas about what to do within a reasonable drive. The best experience for me of our entire vacation was a tour, arranged by the chef, of a family farm on the north side of the peninsula where we were able to visit a family church with at 1,000 year history and see how eider down is collected and processed.

Room Tip: We had a wonderful room #16, on the south side of the lodge facing the fjord. It was quiet and room...

Once again my family and I were thrilled to be back staying at Vogur! We stayed two nights in comfort fitting a 5 Star Hotel in the U.S. The bathrooms are large and accommodating, the towels big and soft and the Hotel provides a bathrobe for your enjoyment. It was so nice wrapping up in the robe after the Hot Tub!

The bedding is comfy and the linens crisp and white! Hard to leave for the day when you are tucked in a down filled bed. We enjoyed two dinners at Vogur and the Chef Snorri prepared delicious traditional meals for us...one, a local Cod and the other a delicious lamb. Of course, the extensive breakfast buffet had us thinking about just staying around the Hotel all day...eating! The dining area is extensive and comfortable; a wonderful place to meet other travelers, read a good book or just sit and enjoy the beautiful views.

We will be back soon! Thank you Gudmundur and Solveig for a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: Rooms are available for families staying together, or couples desiring peace and quiet.

We stayed here for one night in May 2013 and it was wonderful. It is located in the beautiful countryside with amazing views. The room was large and very comfortable and the bathroom was huge (which is hard to find!!) After arriving we enjoyed a bottle of wine in the hot tub and enjoyed the peaceful amazing views. The breakfast was delicious and the customer service was exceptional. The main lodge where breakfast is served is a comfortable large room that is another great spot go relax in. I would highly recommend this place and only wish we could have stayed longer.

We had a lovely time at Vogur Country Lodge. The owner is extremely nice and gracious, and went out of his way to help us, whether it be recommendations on where to go or helping us when our car ran out of petrol.

The room and bathroom was very clean, modern and extremely spacious. I found myself missing our room at Vogur when we stayed in other hotels and B&Bs during the rest of our time in Iceland. The bed was huge and very comfortable, and the view outside of our window was gorgeous and a treat to wake up to every morning.

The breakfast is plentiful and delicious. Our dinner was also delicious and used produce from around the area.

I would definitely recommend Vogur Country Lodge.

Beautifull surroundings, silence, unforgettable arctic tranquility - it's a "Iceland standard" for farmhouses. The same we had in Vogur farmhouse. From the terrace You can enjoy Hvammsfjordur panorama with mountains behind it. From the backyard - hills with waterfall not far from the farmhouse.

Although the kitchen is surrounded by guest rooms, it is for stuff use only. It's not typical for Iceland and we don't expected it. The owner kindly makes us an exception and lets us make our meal there.

wi-fi internet is not available here.
