Incredible location, beautiful and comfortable hotel. The service was first rate.
The Hotel Budir is located off the main road around the Snaefellsnes Peninsula amid an elf filled lava field, with views of a beautiful beach, a historic black church, and the mountains. As wonderful as the location is, the service and food are even better! We were treated as if we were the only guests, even though the hotel was full, with total attention of the staff at all times. The hotel has its own well stocked bar and several lounges, a gourmet dining room, and a menu to make anyone happy. Try the langoustine appetizer and the Blue Ling Fish entree. When we come back to Iceland, we will stay there again! PS check out the shop behind the hotel as well...
The town of Anastapi is quite beautiful and Guesthouse Snjofell offers an alternative to camping. The restaurant provides delcious lamb but prices are not cheap and there is no grocery store within walking distance. If travelling by bus, it is wise to bring some prepared food since there are no cooking facilities in this guesthouse. There is only one washroom for the whole guesthouse, which created long ques when all of the rooms were being used.
the location is very special: a tiny village, bird colonies and lava, views on the glacier.
staff and food were good, surrounding beautiful, room clean, bed good toilet and bath faccilities are poor for too many guests
The views and the ambiance Too many rooms sharing just obe bathroom (8, I think),
The surrounding area is beautiful. Too bad about the lousy accommodation. Very expensive for what you get. The room was like a youth hostel, but the price was not! The furniture was bottom of the range Ikea. Half the lights in the room were not working, the beds were basic and uncomfortable. The sheets were transparent. Very noisy!! The shower rooms were not very nice with broken light fittings and there was only two showers for over 20 people! The picture for this place is misleading as the nice looking houses that you see are the very overpriced restaurant/reception and not the accommodation, which is very basic. The food was extremely overpriced. The lamb chops were 80% fat. This was by far the worst place of our stay in Iceland. Would not recommend to anybody.
Location next to cliffs Heating was very high; rooms were tiny; could not join beds together; small room; staff seemed rather cold; restaurant overpriced and stuffy, so we at at another hotel nearby, excellent food and service.
The location of Snjofell is amazing. The food was very tasty, local and fresh. The breakfast buffet had everything we liked. Snjofell's restaurant is housed in a beautiful old turf house.
Location - Arnastapi and the Snaefellness peninsula are gorgeous. The staff were really friendly and helpful (only rated good, as the girl who had started the morning arrived got things a little bit wrong, but that was her inexperience, which was quickly resolved) My single room was tiny, and the pricing seemed very expensive compared to elsewhere in Iceland.
