To explore the environment of Myvatn with all it's beauty and volcanic curiousities it is nice to have a great base where you can start and end your daily activities. And that is exactly what this hotel was for us during our three night stay here. Although the en-suite rooms are a little outdated (roomdoors are pinching), over all this... More

We stayed there for a couple of days. The hotel is located at walking distance to the lake shore, you could start trekking from there. The people were very friendly and helpful. The rooms seem to be quite different - ours was nice and spacey, with a view of the lake and very clean. Breakfast is OK like everywhere in... More

We had a pleasant couple of nights here. Arrived by private car from Akurieri Airport which took a couple of hours. The hotel is one of the main buildings in the area and we found it easily. It's a three star hotel and I was pleased with the room which was clean, comfortable and quiet! I clearly had a better... More

A pleasant stay. The room was tidy and clean. Breakfast was buffet style with an average selection but dinner is in a separate bistro across car park. The Bistro food was basic. On recommendation went to the Cow Shed restaurant 5 mins down the road by car for dinner on our second night, good move.

I had a good staying at the hotel. Rooms are comfortable even if the furniture is minimal. At the restaurant you could taste the original Icelandic kitchen accompanied by the good local beer Gamli. Close to the hotel there is a scary cemetery. It was amazing to see the northern lights over it!

Almost wanted to give this spot 1 star, but there were 3 saving graces: great location, friendly staff, and a clean and comfortable bed. I do appreciate these things about Hotel Reynihlid. The rest? The most unpleasant and worn out of all 8 accommodations we had during our time in Iceland. Very musty and downright unpleasant smelling bathroom with moldy... More

Small tight room and there is only 2 feet space in front of bed which makes it very hard to move. very thin walls -and neighbors can be heard. Visited by large groups, and breakfast is very busy and noisy. However, food choices is very good. Some staff are friendly and others are unfriendly. phone worked intermittently. A small airport...

We were here in July, 2014. The hotel was excellent, we had a corner room with a lot of light, two beds, and a medium sized bathroom. But two things really made it special. First, the front desk staff couldn't be nicer! No matter who was on duty, they went out of their way to assist. One in particular (I... More

Nice property just near the lake. Rooms are simple, but clean and has free wifi. The restaurant at the hotel is supposed to be very good, but, we did not eat there. Breakfast is included in your room price. Parking is in a lot in front of the property. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Big and very good room and excellant food with a very beautiful landscape..5-10 minutes away are the Geothermal baths which are very relaxing after long day, and very good massages. Great hiking routes around the hotel by the lake.
