The hotel has a perfect 'in the middle of nowhere' setting. There are no lights around to disturb the views of the northern lights (if they are there). Its a little out of Vik. We were on our way back from Jokulsarlon and planned to stay the night in Vik. We checked for the weather/aurora forecast and figured we had... More

We slept in the new wing of the hotel - the room was VERY spacious (we mention it after a few quite small rooms we encountered in Iceland), very nice and modern and comfy with good Wi-Fi. Pay attention that there was no fridge in our room. When we arrived it was cloudy and rainy, so we didn't see much... More

I stayed for 2 nights. The hotel and the room is basic and cozy. It's chosen and included in a 3D2N local tour I joined. Like other guests, I spent little time in this hotel and was busy at the outdoor sightseeing during daytime. The breakfast was nice and the dinner was even better, so tasty. If you are lucky...

Very clean room with underfloor heating, no fridge or microwave but kettle and tea and coffee. We had a room at the rear with a view of the glacier, good choice for breakfast, waiting staff very pleasant. Encountered who I think was the owner 4 times over 3 days, he needs lessons in manners and courtesy toward his customers, saw... More

Nice hotel with a view. Our room was nice and is carpeted. Electric plugs are a little lacking if you need to charge devices. Had dinner at the restaurant and the service and food was quick and delicious.

Stayed here for two nights while visiting the area of Vik. This hotel appears to be popular both for stay and for meals with tourists on the Icelandic circuit. Rooms were basic and clean. The hotel has a unique wooden bar, really large dining room and several seating areas.

The Dyrholaey is located just outside Vik on the south of Iceland. It has a gravel road up to it although once you get there it has a huge tarmac car park. We met the hotel's lovely old dog in the car park and were then warmly welcomed by the folks on the desk as we walked into reception. The... More

For a long while there was no one to answer our repeated telephone calls to confirm our reservation and ask for an extra baby cot. Eventually, an helpful female voice "materialized". The rooms were fine and half of them commanded the fine ocean view. The dinner was a bit disappointing. The roast beef was dry and hard, although the soup... More

This hotel is not far from Vik, located in a beautiful Icelandic area. We stayed in the hotel for one night while touring Iceland. The Beds were comfortable, The bathroom functional, and we had working wifi. Our breakfast was good and plentiful. Unfortunately, our one night there was extremely foggy and we missed the views seen from the hotel.

The hotel is on a hilltop so there is a view but that did not compensate for drab and sad. The rooms were ok and clean and wifi good. But there is no atmosphere. Comparing to a similarly functional and simple hotel like the Hrauneyjar Highland Center, where there is a really lively and fun backpacker/hiker ambiance. The breakfast was... More
