Superb accommodation, with helpful and friendly staff. A group of 10 of us stayed for a couple of nights. We and had the Xmas buffet, which was excellent, however the food on the second night was pricey and ok. The hotel is Ideal for exploring SW Iceland and the golden circle.

During our tour of Southern Iceland (the golden circle) one of our nights was spent at this hotel and was a very splendid surprise. Lovely apartments each with a superb hot tub outside and Ikea style furniture including a really comfortable bed and nice roomy bathroom. The girl in reception was a dream, so helpful and kind, bringing bathrobes for... More

I enjoyed the Xmas feast with my girlfriend and stayed for one night. The food was amazing and the service was even better. The hotel staff and waiters at the restaurant made sure we had a wonderful time and if we needed anything they had taken care of it within minutes and with a big smile! The nature around the...

This time we wanted to spend several nights in one location - and we could not have selected a better place. Our studio was beautiful, well... More

Beautiful location, accommodation and very friendly and helpful staff. Booked a two bedroom apartment with the luxury package and when we got there we discovered they'd upgraded us to a 4 bedroomed house. It was huge and looked like a show home. Couldn't have been happier!
