Brimnes Hotel & Bungalows

Hotel, cottages in Ólafsfjörður

The real draws at the town’s primary accommodation are the fabulous lakeshore log cabins (varying sizes, sleeping up to seven), with hot tubs built into the verandah and views over the water. There are also 11 bright, fresh en suite rooms, plus a decent restaurant serving the usual soup, fish and burgers (open 6.30pm to 9.30pm June to August).
