We spent a night at the Hraunsnef Country hotel during our round Iceland trip in March 2013. It is just North of Bifrost and quite close to the famous village of Reykholt, home of Snorri Sturluson, the famous medieval Icelandic poet and politician, who is often credited for writing down many of the Icelandic sagas.
The hotel is really comfortable with spacious well equipped rooms, and the staff are so welcoming.... and the restaurant serves locally sourced products beautifully cooked (for example, the lamb comes from the farm next door and they grow their own salads etc). We had an hour in the outdoor hot tub after dinner watching the stars (even though it was freezing outside) - what an experience. breakfast was also a joy, with home made lamb pate, a gorgeous scrambled egg with bits of bacon, fresh herbs and salad etc, home made jam etc etc.
The lady who looked after reception and served us breakfast looked after us really well. We were on the way to Isafjordur in winter and she looked up the road conditions and advised us on the best route to take.
Oh, and the farm has tame animals - sheep, horses, which is a bonus!
If we pass this way agin we shall definitely go back. And we recommend it to any travellers passing this way.
