Borganes is not the nicest town in Iceland, but the Hamar is fortunately 5km away. Take route 1 out of town going north, and look for the red-roofed mansion on the hill, signposted for the golf club. Drive up to the red-roofed mansion, but turn right before you get there to a ghastly-looking motel. That's it. Now, despite the traditionally awful Icelandic architecture, this really isn't bad. The rooms are fine, the restaurant good (but very expensive) and the landlady a real gem - charming, funny, helpful and welcoming. Oh, and the hot tub is great!
