Great place, decent rooms, fantastic jacuzzi, warm house, all the things you may need to have a comfortable stay. Easy access to places to eat, and close to nature. Welcoming staff, very helpful, definitely stay there again. Nice and private.

We have spent only one night in Olafsfjordur on our tour around Iceland - and I do regret that. This place would be worth several days stay - to discover the trekking paths in the surrounding, kayaking on the lake (included in the room rate), or just sitting in the hottub and enjoying the evening. Next time, for me obligatory... More

This cabin was just too cute! Our teenage daughters asked if we could get one on a property in the the States. The breakfast in the main hotel was good and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful about the town in general.

I am giving this a 4 for 2 reasons: the view, and the price.Also the person at reception was very friendly and informative. I am in a hotel room as the cabins were all booked, and the room itself has the same view and is a decent, clean room. I was unpleasantly surprised to learn that the advertised restaurant and...

We stayed in the hotel portion, and although both the bedrooms and baths were small, they were clean and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding, the best we had during our entire two week stay, and the breakfast area was big and bright. The staff was extremely helpful, providing directions and suggestions for things to see and do.... More

We rented a 2 person cabin on the water that had a hot tup on the porch. The restaurant was very good. One review said to go up the road for food to the next town. That would be a mistake. The pictures on the web site made the cabins look like they are completely separated from everything which isn't... More

Very welcoming hotel. Staff are really helpful and nice. You can tell they are trying hard- nice new furniture in the rooms and really soft bedsheets! Breakfast was good - the usual Icelandic spread (cereals, bread, meats, yoghurt etc.) and also a huge bowl of fruit. Also ate at the restaurant in the evening, which was good - the chips... More

This was a truly memorable holiday. Stunning lake view from hot tub on verandah, watching the many different water birds dive for fish - quite magical. Extremely relaxed place, close to supermarket and only 15 minutes drive to Dalvik where we went whale watching.

stayed here for one night on the way back to akureyri, the cabins were clean and warm. Hot tub was a nice bonus. Staff were helpful and friendly. Would stay here again. Would be a great place to use as a base for ski touring
