After a drive up a very steep mountain we arrived at the hotel. We were situated in the new annex of the building and it was very clean and comfortable. The room was quite large with a nice bathroom. Great location with good views of the ocean from the dining room. We arrived fairy late but we were able to... More

Very comfortable, large room and bathroom. Great location with good views of the ocean from the dining room. We arrived late and had to leave early, but the owner went out of his way to feed us dinner and put out breakfast. We were very appreciative. The dinner of fish and chicken was fantastic. The breakfast was a filling traditional... More

Rather an unusual experience as the hotel is at the top of a fairly long and steep gravel track, however the views are spectacular when you get there. We visited 'off season' (early May) when there were few other guests. The hotel is quite large and presumably caters for large numbers of people, or coach parties, in the main season.... More

The hotel is just off the road, in a hill which gives you great views! The room was in the newest building but furniture didn't seem that new. Breakfast buffet was ok, we took a table by the window to enjoy the views. However, this is not a hotel I would especially recommend.

We stayed here for two nights and were able to travel around Iceland and see the water falls, the geysers, parks do some shopping and go to the magnificent beach that you see from the hotel. The hotel looks like a 1950's barracks - but inside it is clean and rooms perfect. WI-FI was perfect too. We had dinner here... More

We arrived late afternoon to what can only be described as a building site (it reminded me of Carry on Abroad). I thought I had come to the wrong place. The car park was extremely muddy from the building work. We were greeted by a friendly lady who explained that we were the only guests staying in the hotel that... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on our first trip to Iceland. This was our first stop and it was an easy 3 hour drive from Keflavik airport on wintery roads. The rooms are very large and well appointed with a great shower and tea/coffee making facilities. The view to the ocean was fantastic. We were made to feel very welcome... More

A delightful setting this traditional hotel is a perfect fit for travellers staying for one or two nights. Bedrooms warm,spacious with good en suite facilities (showers). Service reasonable if not a little distant, food was fine, simple but hearty. The hotel is located on near Reynishverfi Beach so it is well placed. It is quiet and sits alone on the... More

This is a quiet hotel on a hill a few miles outside Vik. There were very few people there the night we stayed (late September), so it was almost eerily quiet. The front desk staffer was kind and patient with our various requests (extra pillows, printing tour confirmations, etc.). The room was fine -- basic but comfortable, private bath, free... More

The building looks long and low, traditional Icelandic, not pictorials maybe, but very efficient. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable, nice bathroom, good beds. The open view from the windows was nice. Dinner was very tasty and excellent breakfast buffet. Most of the staff came from Poland, they were helpful and they did everything to make our stay... More
