Stayed 3 night at this hotel (pronounced Hlith) Outside was nothing special, modern spacious, tasteful and warm inside. Our room was a good size double with en suite, very clean. The bed was comfortable and we had no trouble sleeping at all. Very peaceful location. The hotel manager was really really helpful and pleasant. He even arranged for an earlier... More

The hotel is very simple. Rooms small and not very clean. Dinner was decent but the breakfast was very poor. Staff were pleasant. Nature around is wonderful but I do not recommend this hotel.

Set off the main road and about 7km from nearest Hervagerdi. Very similar in format to Holiday Inn Express or Premier Inn. Rooms ok size wise with two single beds (can be pushed together). Bathroom ok with nice shower and clean towels. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was good with cereals, yoghurt, fruit followed with choice of breads,... More

We stayed for three nights and found it clean with basic needs. It is set at a very quiet location on a very quiet road. Breakfast was basic with a cold selection of foods. Evening meal was good with a variety of home cooked foods to eat. Overall a pleasant experience.

We weren't supposed to be staying here - we were supposed to be at their sister hotel the Hotel Ork, which is of a higher standard, but ebookers messed up and they hadn't booked us a room, even though they confirmed 4 days before my departure that they had! The Hotel Ork sent us to the Hlid as they had... More

We discovered it late, when we were tired of looking for an accomodation and finding uncomfortable rooms. It is an Hotel, not a Guesthouse, so big rooms ensuite, nice staff, a very good and huge breakfast, all for the same price as a Guesthouse. it has hot tube also. Decoration is the best.

I visted with a small group (five in all) and the bookingwas made by agents. The rooms were clean and spacious, with good bathrooms. But the hot water comes from a geo-thermal source a few fields away and so it can take a time before it reaches the hot tap. Although not far from Iceland's Road No 1, the hotel... More

The hotel itself isn't open at this time of year, so we were offered one of the 'cottages; a 'swiss style' wooden building. This had fantastic views and water supplied from the ground next to us. The cottage was cosy and warm and had a good living/cooking area. As we were staying for 3 nights we chose to splurge out... More

First, a quick word on how we got to this hotel. I had originally booked a room for us (myself, my wife, and 6-year old son) at the Hotel Eldhestar based on their glossy website ("An Eco-labelled Countryside Hotel dedicated to the Icelandic Horse"). Well, an hour before arriving, I phoned Eldhestar only to be told that "due to a... More
