#2 of 4 hotels in Borgarnes
Situated close to the bridge crossing Borgarfjordur bay, across the water from the town of Borgarnes Hotel Bru provides the simple comforts of home in a cozy atmosphere, a place you can sit and chat as the sun turns the bay first golden, then fiery red. Just a few hundred meters from the main road, Hotel Bru has a homey feel to it, whilst providing the facilities expected in a hotel.

We arrived at 18:00 but nobody was there and the hotel door was closed. A note informed that you should have received an email with the info to check in but we did not. We had to call twice to get the code of the box and get the key of our room. The surrounding area ("garden"?) was not taken care of and the hot tube was empty, but this could have been because covid limitations. The room was on the ground floor, very small and unfortunately it was dirty, there were plenty of dead flies in the lamp, spots in the walls, dirty carpet, linen broken in the bottom part, burning marks in the toilet floor, and it has a sort of plastic-made shower where we can see hairs of the previous guests. The hotel was practically empty and better rooms were surely available. Since our room was at ground level, we saw other rooms next to ours that looked better. Disappointing that they didvnot offer a better room. There was no staff in the hotel until next morning but using the key we could go inside reception for a coffee. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was ok, not outstanding, but with different options. The hotel is few km driving from the town and you can see the bay, but hardly from our room. It is not an expensive hotel but after 12 days in Iceland, this was definetly the worst accommodation, so not worth what you pay for it.

The hotel is an older property. However the hotel is quite nice. For us the location was convenient, it is a bit outside of town. The room was very spacious and clean. In the bathroom we missed some hooks to hang our towels. The breakfast was very delicious and there were a lot of good items of food to choose from. The staff was very friendly.

The cabin was beautiful, bright and clean. The breakfast was not so good, with sour milk and several other items which looked to have been out too long, or recycled for too many days. Reasonable price and enough to eat without touching the bad milk and hard-cooked eggs.

The locations i very nice! We stayed at one of the cottages they offer and it's location was beautifuk, close to the river and we had Hafnarfjall the mountin straight infront of our cottage! When we arrived we noticed a sign that said restaurant but when we were checking in the women at the front desk said there wasnt any restaurant but all good though! We just drove into Borgarnes to have dinner. The cottage looked very cute on the outside and inside as well but when we actually came in we noticed that it hadn't been cleaned for a while, dust on the night stands, fire extinguisher, the trash can in the bathroom was pretty discusting and some stains on it that might have been pee stains so not very pleasent to see that but all in all the bed was very nice, we slept well, the view was pretty when the sun was setting and the surroundings were nice :)

stayed here for one night, had a cottage down the beach; location is good, directly next to the bridge to borgarnes; the cottages are only a 100 meters next to the beach the only negative thing about the room was a certain smell, but it disappeared after we ventilated the cottage for a several time; the cottages are spacious enough and equipped like an apartment, so you have everything you need, if you want to cook by yourself. the wifi did a good job, the rooms were clean; it was quiet in the night! the breakfast was really good and plenty enough, the staff was very courteous
