My spouse and I spent a week in Iceland in September 2021 and knew we had to come back for a longer visit. We did so in August 2023 and dedicated two weeks. We rented a car at KEF airport planning to drive the Ring Road. We are so glad that we included a visit to the WestFjords taking the car ferry from Stykkishólmur to Brjánslækur. (We met a number of wonderful travelers on the ferry that we saw later during the course of our travels.) We spent two nights in a Superior Room at the Fosshotel Westfjords in Patreksfjörður. The accomodations were great and I can highly recommend spending time in the West Fjords at this hotel. The staff were all excellent and very helpful in guiding our travels–takk to them. (We did make the multi-hour drive on the dusty, bumpy road to the Látrabjarg Nesting Cliff and saw the last of the puffins before they head to sea for the winter.) The breakfast buffet, as we found at all the Fosshotels we stayed at on this trip, was excellent. And, what a great peaceful view just stepping outside the hotel. We miss you Iceland, and can't wait to return.

Our first experience at a Fosshotel was very pleasant. The manager provided us with answers - and great suggestions - to our many questions about activities in the area. The place is clean and very nice, and the staff very good in all regards. Our (four) dinners were not outstanding but the breakfast was awesome.
