This review is for the Arnarstapi Cottages, not for the sister operation Hótel Arnarstapi. This being the Covid-19 pandemic era, we were the only ones occupying the cottage complex. The cottages are located within short driving distance of the main attractions of the south side of Snæfellsnes. Access to the north side via Fródárheiði is easy. The room design is a mixed bag. The main area features a comfortable bed and a sofa, but no working desk. By the bedside are two cheap looking stools to park your personal effects. There is a fridge and a microwave with a couple of coffee mugs, glasses, and packets of instant coffee. The bathroom was very comfortable. To summarize, the living space is reasonably pleasant but clearly not much was put into the layout. For a night this works out just fine. There is a restaurant nearby within walking distance but it was closed this month (Nov 2020) for obvious reasons.

I went there during the first week of August with my girlfriend. The cottages were great and looked exactly as expected. The only thing that made the stay feel bad and unwelcoming was the woman in the reception. This woman was rude and unhelpful and we paid way to much for burned pizza and bad attitude at this so called “restaurant”. This was not the ending of the trip we wanted since we wanted to treat ourselves and her bad service and rudeness kind of put us in a bad mood. I Would want to stay there again because the scenery is great and the cottages absolutley perfect but this certain employee and her attidue towards her customers kind of ruined the experience with bad food and horrible service.

The cottage is like a larger hotel room. It is nice and well equipped. Large bathroom, large fridge and a sofa in addition to the bed. You cannot prepare food in the cottage, but there is a microwave and you can store things in the fridge. Seemed like a better option tha the more expensive hotel rooms. The bathroom was very cold, and it was not possible to raise the heat. We went there during summer time, expext it to be Very cold during winter.

This place is remote, restaurant options are limited and shops aren't local (tip: take snacks), that's why we booked it! We stayed for two nights and we are glad we did because it gave us a better chance of catching the Northern Lights. We ate our evening meal at Resturant Arnarbaer, the pizzas were delicious and our breakfast in the main building opposite, expensive but sizeable and so so good!! The cabin itself was comfortable and clean, there's no TV, but why would you want one when you're somewhere so incredible? The only negative if I had to find one was the shower, at best you get 15 minutes of warm water, as long as you're aware of it you can hop in and hop out though, no probs! Our stay at Arnarstapi Cottages made our little Icelandic road trip even more amazing than it already was, thankyou for an unforgettable stay!

First of all they have this super nice and welcoming staff on that day. It’s quite a winter snow That day and their reception was closed but luckily I saw the staff changing linens on one of the cabins and was very accommodating to me (us). I wish we could have stayed longer to our beautiful cottage! Best to visit between October and November because it’s restaurants will be closed usually from Dec 1 due to winter storms and not so many tourists coming. Our cottage is beautiful and cozy! We’ve been warmth enough and had very good time staying there! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
