Set on Flatey Island in the Breidafjördur Bay, this hotel is a 5-minute walk from the Baldur Ferry Terminal that departs from Stykkishólmur. It's hard to separate the hotel from the larger experience of staying on Flatey- a remote, strange, quiet and beautiful place- but in a word it's wonderful. The hotel isn't very modern, which is part of its charm. You might hit your head once or twice on the slanted ceilings in the bathroom, but there's a snug common reading area, comfortable beds, and from all of the windows you can see birds (so many!) and tides. The staff are friendly and helpful, offering recommendations for things to do not only in Flatey but wherever you're going next. The pre fixe dinner options at the restaurant were delicious and breakfast in the morning was our favorite in Iceland. We were sorry to leave.

Flatey is a charming and tranquil place with a small village consisting of restored and repurposed buildings painted in colorful hues. There are no visitor cars allowed on the island and this adds to the leisurely pace of the island. It is a beautiful place with seaside paths, good birding, an interesting church, the oldest library in Iceland, and a great hotel/restaurant. If you have a car and are going on to West Fjords or Stykkisholmur, you can arrange to have your car taken to the far shore while you stay on the island. If you stay overnight, the hotel has a very friendly staff, rooms full of character and an excellent restaurant.
We loved walking around the island, sitting on the coast, taking photos, and talking with one another. The paintings in the church are not to be missed. The peace and quiet are what are most valuable experiences here...don't expect any nightlife or entertainment. Stay away if that's what you're looking for.
