Hotel Laugarbakki is a beautiful accommodation by Route 1 in northwest Iceland with many amenities for business and leisure travelers. Those exploring the Ring Road or looking for a company getaway will find it to be a great escape, particularly considering its hot tubs and on-site restaurant.
Location & Nearby
Hotel Laugarbakki has a fantastic location by Route 1, between the west, the Westfjords, and the north of the country; despite this, it is away from the major attractions, thus quite off the beaten track! As such, those on an exploration around these regions or the Ring Road will find it to be an excellent pit stop or base.
The most popular sites of the west, for example, can all be reached in less than two hours; this includes the historic village of Reykholt, the waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss, and the hot springs of Deildartunghver, as well as the start of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula sightseeing route. In the same amount of time, you can also access some spectacular villages in the Westfjords, such as Reykholar and Holmavik.
Hotel Laugarbakki is even closer to some sites of the north; the Vatnsnes Peninsula, which is renowned for its seal colonies and rock monolith of Hvitserkur, can be reached in just five minutes! You can find the town of Hvammstangi here, where a wealth of traveler services can be accessed. Continuing east, you’ll eventually come to sites such as Glaumbaer and its turf houses; Hofos and its Infinity Pool; and Akureyri, the region’s capital.
Facilities & Amenities
With 56 rooms of different varieties, all of which have private bathrooms, Hotel Laugarbakki is equipped for a range of traveling groups. There are standard single, double/twin, triple, and family rooms to accommodate one to five, which boast free Wifi, TVs, tea and coffee facilities, bathrooms, and a local mobile phone if required.
There are also superior double rooms with more space and are newly furnished with beautiful hardwood floors and much larger suites with stunning, modern decor.
Business travelers will particularly enjoy Hotel Laugarbakki due to its fantastic conference rooms. Asdisarstofa can seat up to 50, while Grettissalur can seat over 200; while the former is well-equipped for smaller meetings, the latter has a projector and screen, a flipchart, a podium, a sound system, and a stage.
A further bonus is the sound studios at Hotel Laugarbakki, where musicians can record music in professional-level conditions.
On top of all this, guests are welcome to enjoy the hot tubs outside and dinner at Restaurant BAKKI, which has an a la carte menu and bar.
