Hótel Skúlagarður

Hotel in Tjörnes Peninsula & Vestursandur

A country hotel behind an unpromising exterior (in a former boarding school), Skúlagarður offers a warm welcome, plus compact, modern, overpriced en suite rooms, and a no-frills restaurant serving good home cooking (oven-baked Arctic char or lamb fillet; mains 3200kr to 4500kr). It’s 13km west of Ásbyrgi. There's a budget wing here too, the River Guesthouse.
