Hildibrand Hotel is a brand new state of the art apartment hotel in Neskaupstaður, a small fishing village in one of Iceland´s remote Eastfjords. The hotel is located in the town´s old Co-Op store, built in 1948, and has now been completely renovated. It offers both double rooms and luxury apartments, all bright and beautifully decorated in warm colors with classic art and quality furniture. The house sits by the sea and every room has a view over the fjord where whales are spotted almost daily and the surrounding wilderness offers endless opportunities for outdoor activities and exploration.
Local food – tradition meets creativity
Hildibrand is way more than just a pretty package and the hotel restaurant, the Co-Op Bistro, is without a doubt the cherry on top of the cake. The area has a long tradition of fishing and farming and Hildibrand is passionatly dedicated to local products and working in the spirit of the slow-food philosophy. Everything is made from scratch with fresh ingredients, using nature´s treasure trove and the knowledge and skills of past generations to create original dishes of the utmost quality. The bistro serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers fish and wild game in addition to traditional bistro food with Hildibrand´s own personal twist.
Everything you need for a dreamy picnic
Next door to the hotel, in the town’s former dairy plant, Hildibrand runs a local gourmet shop called The Milk Shop. This charming little place is packed with local goods and gourmet food products from all over Iceland and overseas. They offer a variety of fresh delicatessen and takeaway food, from sushi to sandwiches, masterfully handmade Icelandic chocolates and a selection of Icelandic specialities such as dried fish and fermented shark, to name just a few. A visit to The Milk Shop is essential for all food enthusiasts travelling in the area.
Aside from providing guests with an additional option to dining in the restaurant, The Milk Shop specialises in the making of dreamy picnic baskets for travellers who plan to experience the stunning nature in the Eastfjords close up. Ask around in the hotel lobby and they will be sure to assemble a custom picnic basket for you, in addition to providing helpful information on the natural treasures that the Eastfjords are noted for.
The Eastfjords are a magnificent area, in part desolated, rich in wildlife and strikingly beautiful. A stay at Hildibrand is destined to be one of the highlights of your visit to Iceland. During the day you can walk or sail into one of the nearby fjords, fish or go for a horse ride, Hildibrand even runs it´s own catering service and will happily prepare you a pic-nic or a lunch box for your day.
