This hotel is located in an idyllic and secluded spot on the south coast of the Sneafellsnes peninsula. The hotel looks great, the food is amazing. The waitstaff were excellent but otherwise the service was a bit cold. Overall very good.

The pictures say it all, the hotel located on an isolated spit on the south side of the Snaefellness peninsular. This is a very high quality hotel and comes at a price but is well worth it. Dinner was excellent but again very expensive as you come to expect in Iceland although we did go for the tasting menu. The... More

We stayed for 2 nights and it was magical. The location is sublime and the countryside is beautiful. The hotel is warm and welcoming and beautifully looked after. My only comment would be that a few more vegetarian options on the menu would be welcomed, however, the food we did have was wonderful!! We will be back for sure.

Absolutely gorgeous landscape frames the entire experience at Hotel Budir, and the beautiful church and vast open spaces creates a heart wrenching, but beautiful, sense of desolation. The hotel itself is quite simple, the lobby/bar area is very picturesque, but the rooms are in need of some improvements (dings and scratches on walls abound, toilet slightly broken). Our room did...

Hotel Budir is a truly beautiful hotel located in an excluded part of Iceland. We arrived on a particularly stormy night and walking into the hotel was as if awakening in a dream. The lobby and bar were so inviting and the staff was friendly and helpful. As we walked to our rooms we noticed a cute living area which... More

We were blessed that our daughter's wedding was held at Budir. 47 guests 'took over' the hotel. Dadi, Marcus and Fanny together with their wonderful staff provided a wonderful wedding reception. What hotel manager would travel 300 miles to collect a bridesmaid! Thank you Dadi. Food was brilliant and service supreme. An experience to remember.

The Hotel Budir is a short ride from the main road on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, sitting in the middle of a lava field, with views of bluffs, beach, and mountains. The Hotel itself has a variety of rooms from suites, to lofts with skylights, and lounges on every floor. The bar is well stocked, and the dining is great. Complete... More

We stayed here during some stormy weather. The hotel is incredibly quaint and cozy. It felt like we were staying in a friend's home. Our room had a strange configuration with a sloped ceiling and an odd shower but it was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed both dinner and breakfast at the hotel and it was very good albeit pricey....

Stayed as the last night of an 8 day tour round Iceland. This was by far the best hotel we stayed in. Despite remote location atmosphere is sophisticated, relaxed and welcoming.
