Ring Road travelers or those looking to stay close to some of the country’s most extraordinary sites will find this choice of accommodation very welcoming and excellently located.
Location & Nearby
Hotel Varmaland can be found almost directly between the towns of Borgarnes and Reykholt, both of which are 20 minute drive away.

This site is home to the luxurious Krauma Spa for those seeking to unwind in Iceland’s geothermal waters.
Furthermore, in just an hour, you can reach the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, a region with so much diversity it is nicknamed Iceland in Miniature.
Facilities & Amenities
All the rooms of Hotel Varmaland are comfortable, brightly furnished, and boast flat-screen televisions, free Wifi, and en suite bathrooms with showers and toiletries. They come in several variations for travelers with different budgets, getting increasingly larger and more luxurious.
The economy double is most affordable, followed by the standard double/twin; the deluxe double/twin rooms are even more opulent, whereas the superior double, which sleeps up to three, is the grandest.
All guests are welcome to a lovely breakfast each morning and can dine in the evenings at the beautiful Calor Restaurant for an additional cost. A great bonus of eating here is the spectacular panoramas that can be marveled over from the windows.
