Stay at a luxurious hotel by a lake, immersed in a beautiful forest, by booking Hotel Hallormsstadur. Travellers to east Iceland who want to wake up surrounded by incredible nature, without missing out on modern amenities and some lavish touches, should not hesitate to book a room here.
Location & Nearby
Hotel Hallormsstadur sits within the largest forest in Iceland, Hallormstadasskogar, a spectacular place renowned for its hiking and biking routes, as well as its abundant population of birds. Furthermore, it also sits against Lake Lagarfljot, a vast, serene body of water steeped in fascinating folklore.
In spite of seeming leagues from any signs of civilisation, the ‘Capital of East Iceland’, Egilsstadir, is just half an hour to the north. Furthermore, it is positioned excellently to explore the magnificent sites that define this region, particularly the Eastfjords. The magical village of Seydisfjordur can be reached in 50 minutes, and the unbelievable fjord of Borgarfjordur Eystri is just an hour and a half away.
Hotel Hallormsstadur also makes somewhat awkward sites such as Mount Snaefell, the country’s tallest freestanding mountain, accessible; reaching it takes just over an hour driving inland.
Facilities & Amenities
Hotel Hallormsstadur has traditional decor, making it fit beautifully within its forest setting. In spite of this, its amenities are all modern; every room has free Wifi and en suite bathrooms, which are complete with hairdryers and showers. Standard single, twin, triple and family rooms for four are the most affordable, though superior double rooms are more spacious and boast better views.
Even so, all rooms either look out on the lake, mountains, or garden.
It is not just the comfy rooms that compel guests to book their stay here. There is also a leisure centre, sauna and hot tub on-site, which can be accessed for a slight extra cost, and a beautiful restaurant bar with enormous windows looking out on the forest. Furthermore, the staff can advise you on fishing and birdwatching in the area, and allow you to borrow bikes.
