The Hótel Egilsen has been described as the prettiest and most tastefully decorated hotels in Iceland. Its perfect setting is a newly converted house close to the harbour in Stykkishólmur and surrounded by beautiful scenery.
Local attractions include a swimming pool with apparent regenerative powers, endless hiking trails and the nearby Snæfellsjökull National Park.
The warm greeting you receive from Gréta, the hotel owner, makes you feel instantly welcome. She relishes discussing the story of the hotel and passing on tips and advice on how to get the most of your adventure.
Gréta's breakfast is an absolute treat and her fresh and healthy kitchen utilises local and seasonal products to offer her guests a variety of granola, eggs, famous Icelandic yoghurt and locally caught fish.
With only ten rooms, the hotel has a delightfully intimate feel. The rooms are small but bright and comfortable. Additional features such as power showers, iPads and free Wi-Fi all enhance your stay here.
