...in three historical buildings
At the end of the 19th century Seyðisfjörður was a blooming town thanks to the efforts of Norwegian herring entrepreneurs. Back then a lot of Norwegian wooden houses were erected, "The Old Bank" being one of them. Originally build as a hotel, it was considered to be one of the best in the whole country.

In the summer of 2005 we added Hotel Snæfell into our service. Thru the years the house has served as a post office, hotel and restaurant. It was home to the first jukebox that came to the east of Iceland. It has now been partially restored and now has nine cosy rooms.
Our reception, restaurant and café are situated in one of Iceland’s oldest stores, still treasuring interiors since 1920.
Now more than a century later, these houses have been restored to their former splendour.
