Hi. Our family stayed only one night at this wonderful hotel located in the Westfijords region of Iceland. We hope to return to Iceland and will definitely stay here again.
It was built in the early 1930's as housing for the women who worked at the Herring Factory located on the grounds. The factory has a rich, short history and the tour of the factory is well worth it.
The rooms are small, cozy and comfortable. Shared bathrooms for men and women are located on the second level - where bedrooms are found. All rooms have views of either the fjord (in front) or the hills (behind). The views are great all around this hotel. The waterfalls from the melting snow above are camera worthy.
The current owners bought the property in 1985 after it had been and are slowly and lovingly restoring the hotel. The large first floor holds the restaurant (exceptional food!!) and sitting room where antiques from days gone by are found everywhere.
Hope to stay here again on our next visit to Iceland and spend more time in this lovely spot.
