Arnanes Country Hotel
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Hofn

Reviewed 18 October 2013

Very nice place. Not the Ritz, but as advertized and better than expected.

Very good food. Some of the food was grown on site and we could visit the garden.

EXTREMELY friendly and helpful people. We were on the circle route bus. The owner picked us up at a designated drop off site. The next day owner arranged for the bus to stop and pick us up AT the lodging location. The people were also helpful about things to see between their location and Reykjavik.

I would do this again!

Stayed one night in a cabin. The cabin was ok for a one night stay. The bed was ok as was the shower/bathroom area - small but it served a purpose. It is distance outside of Hofn, but really, it did not bother us. We ate in the town as no food was offered for dinner. Breakfast was excellent and well presented in the small but cosy eating area, which doubles as reception. On our arrival the owner was distant but all you have to do is smile, say hello, shake his hand and ask his name and you will find a nice decent bloke - who cares. For one night Aranes is good value, with an ok cabin.

Room Tip: Cabins are the go.

we went off season so the restaurant wasn't open for dinner, but the rooms were comfortable, warm, with a great view of open meadows with birds. The hotel is located 6 km out of Hofn which was the only disadvantage.
We didn't do the horse riding, but did enjoy the very diverse breakfast spread (chia and flax seeds and 5 different types of cereal? In Iceland?) Overall, great value for money.

We recently stayed in one of the cottages with a private bathroom. It was clean and comfortable and had a lovely rustic feel to it. The wi-fi was a plus but didn't reach all the way to our cabin (the owner did inform me of this during check in). It worked in the guesthouse during breakfast and when I stepped just outside the room, so it wasn't a huge deal. The owners were very nice and accommodating. Had a big window with a clear view, would have been perfect to spot northern lights.

We got a basement room with shared bath. The room was decent sized, a little cramped and seemed quite old. It didn't give me a warm fuzzy clean feeling. The bathroom was large though and shower has nice pressure and hot. Breakfast buffet had a lot of interesting variety. The price was quite a bit more than I have been paying for similar or better rooms in Iceland, but it seemed like a bargain for the Hofn area.

Really nice and in a good location near the city of Hofn. Our room was a in a comfortable prefabricated trusses next to the main building. The owner is friendly and breakfast, included in the cost of our room, was really abundant, with some tipical products and very good.

We had originally booked 1 room with bathroom and 1 without (more were not available at the time of booking). We ended up managing to change for two rooms with a bathroom. The rooms with a bathroom are either outside in several little 'houses', and the shared bathroom ones are in the main house. Please note that some rooms are located 1.5km from the hotel itself. We opted not to go there. (otherwise there are other hotels to stay in if you have to drive somewhere else already). The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the surroundings quiet. (a view of the grasslands from the window). There are horseriding tours available, I didn't take one but went to have a look at the horses and the tour which was about to leave. Horses seemed happy though and were let onto a big paddock during the nights. The tours are organised by the son of the family, and the hotel is run by the father. You feel the family atmosphere everywhere, since the father also does the waitering in the restaurant, and takes care of the breakfast. Wireless worked in the main building and in the rooms as well. The hotel is a short drive from Höfn, which I first found a pity but after seeing Höfn, I didn't mind being outside of it. I would recommend this place!

Room Tip: Make sure your room is at the hotel itself.
