“cute and clean”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We stayed in one of the larger cabins and loved it. it was very clean and the hot tub was a highlight. There isn't much to do in this town so keep that in mind. However, there is an awesome swimming pool that kids love just a few minutes walk from the cabins. I would come back here in an instant. The cabins were exactly as advertised.

The photo didn't really reflect the actual location of the cabin (in the middle of the small town) and the directions to get there weren't very clear. The WiFi was poor. No blackout curtains. But it suited us and the price was reasonable. Great view of the mountains from the hot tub

Such a beautiful location! The cabins were very comfortable. As there were only two of us, we got the smaller cabin. The kitchen had all the appliances we could need, and was very clean. The hot tub was definitely the best part! It was very private, with great views of the water. Nothing beats sitting in a hot tub, watching the fish jump out of the water right beside you.
The staff were very friendly; the lady who checked us in also showed us our cabin, and told us all about the different activities there were to do around the hotel.
Would definitely stay there again!

After a very pleasant greeting and fast check-in by the owner, we were shown to our cabin.

Perfectly situated right next to the lake Ólafsfjarðarvatn and with a great mountain view the cabins were very appealing on the out- and inside.

The interior was very spacious, cozy and clean. The bathroom could have a little bit bigger though.

The kitchen/ living room area was excellent and had everything you need for preparing dinner or breakfast.

Unfortunately we couldn’t stand to take benefit of the great Whirlpool outside the cabin due to a lack of time but I would definitely recommend you to do so if you choose this Hotel.

The breakfast was good and had everything you need for starting a new day in Iceland

Pro:
-----

- Kindness of the owner
- Condition, coziness, cleanliness and dimension of the cabin
- Location & View
- Excellent WIFI
- Good breakfast

Con:
------

- Tiny bathroom

As you can see our stay was more than pleasant and I would definitely recommend the Brimnes Bungalows.

We stayed here for nine nights in one of the cabins. The manager, Asta, made us feel very welcome and managed to fit us in when we arrived a day early and did everything she could to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Can't wait to go back next year!

Room Tip: Worth paying a bit more for a Medium Cabin

Wooden cottages provide great atmosphere and feel really warm and cosy. Hot tub outside was a winner regardless of cold wind and low temperatures. Surroundings of the hotel great for exploration. Highly recommended.
