A tourist hotel with traditional low buildings set high above the Dyrholaey headland. A walk behind the hotel gives you great views in land. A very well organised hotel providing a well supplied breakfast buffet and a set evening meal with a vegetarian option. The bedrooms were simply furnished but large and comfortable. The beds were also very comfotable. We... More

I went on a photo safari for 6 days and we stopped over for three nights here. wonderful views for photography and placed very well for all you photo enthusiasts. They get lots of groups staying for one or two nights and cope with these changeovers extremely well. The staff don't smile too much but I don't blame them -... More

This hotel is little more than a jumped up hostel run by cheap labour from abroad. We were out of season, so it was quiet and the vast cafeteria style dining room was mostly roped off. There was very little choice for dinner and nothing worth remembering at breakfast. However the room was clean and serviceable.

A good, functional and friendly hotel with good food and service. Good clean bathrooms, great evening meals and the rooms have lots of space and are spotlessly clean. The location is excellent with access to all the geological splendours of the south coast.

The room was nice and the view was great. I was especially appreciative of the hotel staff and especially the manager who was very helpful and accommodating. I... More

The man at reception was very nice, and really went out of his way to help us. In a very cute, maybe a little small, but nice atmosphere. We ate at the hotel restaurant dinner, which was the most expensive and delicious. Breakfast was a wide range of options and very delicious. Somewhat isolated location, but that suited us, just...

This hotel was one of many other hotels/guesthouses booked for us by Icelandic farm Holidays and for me this was the worst of the lot in the terms of experience. The good things were that the view from the front of the hotel was very good and we could escape to Vik for a meal. The hotel is a long... More

The hotel is family run, but almost all staff are from Poland or Russia. This is cheaper for the owners but when you go to Iceland you want to meet the lokals. In this case you get nice service without getting the impression of really staying in the "Saga Island". The rooms are clean, the beds are good but there... More
