Came here for lunch an hour before opening, they welcomed us in with open arms and whipped us up a surprisingly delicious burger. Local beef perfectly cooked with slow cooked cherry tomatoes and outstanding bread (often lacking on burgers) served with small potatoes. Likely the best restaurant on route 1 heading north or Snæfellsnes!
We decided to try this hotel for one night for fun, there was an offer of one night with dinner and breakfast included. The main course was very good, lamb with peppersause and mashed potatoes, and the desert, white chocolate brownie with blueberries. Very delicious! The hot tubs shown on the pictures on the web were a big disappointment, one of them was empty and it was not close to be as cozy as on the pics. Rooms were clean and cosy. Staff was ok, there was this one lady serving us all the time of the stay, didnt think she was too friendly she looked like she was not enjoying her job. So i give it 5/10 ⭐️ Will probably not go there again.
We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Bifröst. The hotel rooms were very clean and spacious with a very large shower. The owner is also a trained chief and prepared a delicious meal. I highly recommend this hotel.
I stayed here as part of a tour arranged by a high-end company (i.e. I paid a lot for it!) and was very disappointed by the standard, as it is a student hostel, not a hotel, and seemed to be run by students. It is not true that there is a microwave in every room - ours did not have one - and the facilities were basic and grubby. We were welcomed by an unemptied waste basket and uncleaned shower. Food is served in a college hall, with inexplicably thumping music at breakfast. The toaster was a domestic one, and was, frankly, dangerous. If you book this hotel because you want a cheap holiday you may not be disappointed, but if you are expecting a normal hotel, you are in for a shock.
As I understood it this hotel is in fact student accommodation. As such the bedrooms were huge with a kitchenette as well. The bathroom was a large wet room. The brutalistic architecture was not to my taste - it just looked like untreated breeze blocks to me. When you try to combine student lodgings with a hotel there are always going to be compromises, and the biggest compromise seemed to be the checking in procedure (or lack thereof). We arrived in three coaches and after a very long wait the keys were all brought out to us in a basket to be sorted by our reps. Then we made the mistake of getting off the coach and trying to enter at the same time - only to find a long queue rapidly formed outdoors as there was only one lift in the building. This was probably the fault of our reps, or maybe the management should have told them that this approach would not work well. The dining room consisted of long tables and the buffet food was delicious, however none of it was labelled so nobody knew what they were eating until they tasted it. To get to the dining area from the rooms you had to wander around poorly signposted outdoor areas which resembled tradesmen's entrances - what looked like the front entrance to the "hotel" was always locked. Didn't notice any grounds to talk of here and nowhere to sit outside. On the positive side the staff were delightful and as helpful as they could be and as stated before the food was lovely.…
