Hotel Framnes, Grundarfjordur

Expedition Image

Type: Hotel

Grade: Standard


Occupying a waterfront spot in the fishing village of Grundarfjordur, this traditional hotel in west Iceland features friendly and excellent service. An area of renowned natural beauty, a holiday in Snaefellsnes gives travellers the opportunity to go on glacier trips, bird watching excursions, ride out on an Icelandic horse and explore the magnificent surrounding scenery on foot.

A hotel that works to share the area's beauty with guests, each room offers marvellous views of the surrounding area. Westerly-facing rooms have a wonderful view of the mountain range of Hell's Gate, which embraces the village itself, while easterly-facing rooms have glorious sea views of the fjord. Bird watchers tend to prefer the latter, as a wide variety of seabirds coast over these indigo waters.


The dining room is bright and cheerful, serving gourmet seafood and sumptuous Icelandic lamb and chicken. The Chef's creative skills are also apparent in the vegetarian meals on offer and the daily breakfast buffet offers an impressive selection with which to start your day.

There are 29 cosy twin/double rooms. The standard rooms have mountain views, while the superior rooms offer sea views. Each room has private facilities but due to the style of the building, storage space may be limited.
