Location & Nearby
Hofsstadir Country Hotel boasts spectacular surroundings, overlooking a fjord, rolling countryside and the serene lake of Heradsvotn. Furthermore, it is perfectly situated in north Iceland, not because it is particularly close to one attraction but because it is within comfortable driving distance of many.
To illustrate, it takes less than two hours to reach the Hvitserkur monument when travelling east or to reach Akureyri, the capital of the north, when travelling west. Within the radius of these two popular attractions are a range of other fantastic sites.
Hofsos, for example, is a clifftop village with one of the world’s most spectacular infinity pools; Siglufjordur is a magnificent settlement framed by enormous mountains. Along the shores of Eyjafjordur fjord are villages renowned for their whale-watching opportunities, whereas Varmahlid boasts Icelandic turf houses, rare feats of architecture from past centuries.
Although in a rural setting, Hofsstadir Country Hotel is just 19km from Saudakrokur, a historic town where you can find all services for travellers.
Facilities & Amenities
Each room in the Hofsstadir Country Hotel is a comfortable 26 square metres, with its own bathroom, terrace, flat-screen TV, radio and electric kettle. From the wide windows, you will either be blessed with incredible views over the countryside, ocean, or adjacent lake. The modern, wooden styling makes the ambience clean, comfortable and chic.
The Hofsstadir Country Hotel also boasts a farmhouse with three rooms, each 20 square metres but with otherwise similar facilities, as a perfect choice for those who would appreciate more privacy.
Other than its well-furnished, comfortable rooms, the hotel also boasts a wonderful restaurant that utilises local ingredients in traditional ways to make authentic Icelandic dishes. Breakfast is available for all guests. There is also a tour desk where you can arrange local excursions such as hiking, sightseeing and Northern Lights hunting in winter.
Why Choose Hofsstadir Country Hotel?
The Hofsstadir Country Hotel is a perfect place for travellers embarking on a journey around Iceland’s Ring Road. It puts you in a prime position to have a full day exploring either the north or west, and if incorporating the Westfjords into your holiday, you will also find it well-positioned as a starting or finishing point for that journey.
It is also a fantastic choice for people who want to visit the geothermal wonderland of north Iceland, but would rather stay away from busier areas such as Akureyri and Lake Myvatn. Any, however, who are seeking to experience a comfortable night surrounded by beautiful Icelandic nature will enjoy a stay here; book your experience now.
