Sat on top of a hill, this hotel has magnificent views of Vik. The rooms are comfortable, wifi worked really well and the food was delicious. The staff were most helpful and catered to vegetarians very easily! I can recommend staying here for a few days to explore Vik and nearby areas.

Clean and comfortable rooms. The weather was very cold on the day of my stay. Central heating was on in the hotel - a very cozy feeling. Good breakfast. A wonderful view from the restaurant! Not a central location, but not too far from Vik.

This a great hotel near Dyrhólaey, on top a small hill and really close to the fabulous black beach and the Dyrhólaey peak. This is a very convenient stop on way to or from Vik. Rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is ample. Higlhy recommended.

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
