Recent guest reviews

This is a lovely hotel. The staff is friendly, and the rooms are large and clean. THe breakfast is complimentary and excellent, and the dinners are well-prepared and delicious. The hot tub is wonderful and the view is fabulous.

This hotel was a very nice surprise--it's situated on a golf course. The hotel is one long floor with patio doors that open to the outside to see the great view. Sadly, it was pouring rain upon our arrival, so outdoors was off the table. Nicely appointed lobby, lounge & spacious dining room. The room was well-appointed & the bed comfy! Had a cute bathroom with a circular shower. Nice happy hour! Since this was a tour, the meal was pre-arranged but was delicious. Main course was a lush white fish I never heard of but it reminds me of cod. Delish!! Very nice breakfast buffet.

Hamar Icelandair Hotel, at Borgarnes is a very cosy hotel that overlooked the golf course, had comfortable heated rooms. While the outside temperature being 5 deg.c., the rooms were warm. One had to keep a window open for fresh air. One had to draw the thick curtains to prevent the light. As we went at a time (June) when Iceland has 24 hour light. Hotel Hamar, 310 Borgarnes Iceland. A very exotic hotel with a large gold course and the beautiful backdrop of mountains with intermittent snow caped peaks. It has also has a small thermal pool.

This hotel situated in borgarnes, Iceland which is your gateway to snaefellsness peninsula (west side of iceland). Location is beautiful with golf course in pristine conditions. In early June u see snow capped mountains with beautiful river. Rooms are large with good attached bath. Breakfast spread is good and limited but fingerlicking lunch and dinner. Parents were vegetarians and staff did make good vegan pastas. It was the best hotel stay in Iceland (other selfoss spa hotel - selfoss and Hilton - Reykjavik). Go with Iceland air hotel chains as they have best locations in entire Iceland

We were on a 7-day tour of Iceland traveling in a clockwise direction on the ring road and after a busy day, our tour group checked in at the Icelandair Hamar Hotel in Borgarnes. We didn’t interact with the staff during the check-in because the hotel was part of the tour package, so I can’t comment on the check-in procedure. But our room was very clean with comfortable beds and a spotless bathroom with an interesting semi-circular corner shower. I guess you could call the decorating style in the hotel a type of ‘Scandinavian Modern’ which is very pleasant. In addition, I can’t comment on the cost of the accommodation because the overnight hotel stay was part of the tour package. We had a delicious dinner and an excellent hot breakfast. During dinner and afterwards the staff was very courteous, friendly and helpful.

Of the 3 Icleandair hotels I stayed at this was my favorite. Borganes is a sweet little town and the hotel is quaint yet modern and clean. We are a family of 4 and had 2 rooms, each with queen size beds. Good size rooms and an amazing view of mountains and golf course. I would definately request a room on the mountain side. There were 2 outdoor hot tubs steps from our room overlooking the water and mountains, such a great spot. The breakfast was pricy so we ate a the best little cafe up the room which is a flower shop/bakery and was outstanding!! Great little town and nice hotel to stay in.

When i arrived at 5.30pm the room was freezing. I spent most of the night with my coat on. I turned the heat up as high as it would go but i was still shivering most of the night. It finally started to warm up about 2.30am. By the morning it was like an oven. The lighting was poor and there is absolutely no lighting on or near the desk area. I found a long dark hair in my bed along with some cotton and fluff. This is quite concerning. How clean is the room? The bathroom was tiny. You have to shut the door to get to the toilet paper, then leave the door open to shower or it fogs up. Be careful as you dry yourself as the door keeps closing and will bang into you and it's certainly too stuffy to shut it. There are no shelves in the bathroom for your toiletries but there is a good size luggage rack and desk, good storage, and tea and coffee making facilities. The bed seems too low and not very comfortable. Dinner not very nice and breakfast average.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the staff is very helpful and as has been stated, it is nice to look out at the golf course, even if you don’t play. Breakfast was very good with a wide variety of things to eat. We ate dinner the first night in their restaurant and thought it was so good we went back the second night. If you are going to be in the area, this you will not be disappointed if you stay at the Icelandair Hotel Hamar.

Our room had a walk out to a little sitting area. This was a great place to enjoy a glass of wine before dinner. Our room overlooked the golf course but the other side of the building looked out to the water down a green grassy hill of the golf course. We enjoyed this view at breakfast. The dinner here was very good. The breakfast was plentiful also. The eggs were a little wanting for heat and a bit dry but if everything was perfect you wouldn't appreciate the other stuff.

after a quick lunch in the capital city on arrival, we continued on to this hotel in Borgarnes. It was a great place to initiate our trip and to enjoy the icelandic countryside. make sure to get a room on the mountain side as opposed to the parking lot. I also enjoyed an early morning walk in the surrounding countryside before anyone was up. The birds were singing and very territorial guarding their nests. It was a lovely way and place to start an Iceland trip from.
