The DNA: The building that houses the Hótel Búðir was once a 17th-century trading post. It was turned into a hotel in 1948. Today, the hotel is still family run and has a correspondingly intimate and homely feel, with a subtle hunting-lodge aesthetic. There are views of the Snæfellsjökull vulcano (a 20-minute drive) or bay from almost everywhere, vintage-style sofas and lamps in the public areas, plus framed old photos on the wall, a working fireplace and magazines and books to read during your downtime.
