This summer my Friends and I stayed one night in this hotel, the room was good and so was the service provided by the receptionist. The breakfast was the best we had in Iceland. The most amazing waq the special bread baked close to a hot spring.

A quaint hotel outside of Vik with some rooms with wood paneling making it feel that you're in an old ski chalet in Europe. Very clean, food prices are a bit expensive if you're looking for dinner. Breakfast buffet is included in the room price with a standard european selection of meats, cheeses, Icelandic bread and a waffle making station.... More

We were staying at the hotel for the night, arriving late after a long drive from the east, so we weren't expecting much of the restaurant. It turned out to be the best dinner we had in Iceland, beating the expensive offerings in Reykjavik with a juicy lamb fillet with tasty vegetables and excellent wine. The buffet breakfast was also...

This review is really about 2 different meals, Breakfast Buffet and Dinner. We've had breakfast buffet here now for 3 years in a row as we navigate the ring road around Iceland. . We stay in the Hotel Hofoabrekka and include the breakfast buffet as part of our accommodation package. Each year the buffet has proven to be great, lots... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the breakfast buffet at Hotel Hofdabrekka. Yes, yes, it is a tour-group hotel, and we were not with a tour group by any stretch of the imagination, but the facilities were large and quaint inside, and the breakfast was filled with some harder-to-find buffet items that we didn't see at other spots, such as a...

Sweet little place that was packed even for a late lunch. I got the arctic char which the waiter's friend caught just a few hours prior; OMG....so good. Hubby had pizza which he said was great. The desserts looked amazing; my friend had one and she raved about it. Lovely place to fill up before an adventure.

The hotel is popular with tour bus operators. There were three buses there the night we stayed at the hotel. Dinner is buffet style. The dining room is huge. There are many options on the buffet but everything is very bland. The goal seems to be quantity versus quality. We paid over 5000 ISK per person for the meal without... More

breakfast and dinner are buffet style, and are BIG and just very busy. Food is so average. dessert is no choice, just a kind of cake, but for meat eaters there is everything, and at least there was fresh salad. But eating here is not a relaxed affair, so finding a more intimate restaurant in town was a better bet.... More

We had dinner here and sampled many dishes. The food was good and excellent service, all with charm and smiles. We had booked this hotel online, only to find they had been overbooked. Not by us but a tourgroup kept adding folks. We were offered a free dinner if we stayed at a place in town. It was not a... More
