Location: The Northern Light Inn is located in the middle of nowhere, although just 20 minutes from Keflavik airport. They provide free transfer (except at night) for those who do not have their own car. The man at the reception was very nice. The check-in process was fast, here you are a trusted guest.

We just spent 5 nights in this lovely hotel. The beds are incredibly comfortable, the room is clean (the TV doesn't have great reception but you're not here to watch TV!) and the social areas are lovely. They're cosy, with a fire and there's a chess set. The restaurant does a decent breakfast (sometimes with cake!) and other meals there... More

Northern Light Inn offers spacious, comfortable rooms. There are also a number of very comfortable seating areas including an honesty lounge bar, a chess table and other sofas areas. The restaurant is excellent. Upstairs is a viewing platform where folk gather to see the Northern Lights. It's exciting to have a number of people watching for them, and helping one... More

A lovely little inn with really helpful staff. Breakfast was nice and the room comfortable but it was the extra services that really made this stay fantastic. The hotel offered a free shuttle to the blue lagoon even though we didn't go till the evening, and even though it was out of their usual shuttle hours they told us to... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, we had a very enjoyable stay. The hotel itself comes across as basic but we found it to be very well laid out with some small thoughtful touches here and the re.

This hotel has 2 things going for it - but very little else. It is very close to the Blue Lagoon Iceland's top tourist attraction and about 15 mins drive from Keflavik airport so ideal for either first night or last night on a trip to Iceland and consequently it has this air of being a "one night" hotel and...

We stayed here for the last night of our trip to Iceland as we had an early morning flight out of the country. We found it a bit difficult to find and ended up driving around the geothermal power plant - that could be more the fault of google maps though! It is 20 minutes from the airport which was... More

After three amazing nights at Hotel Ranga, we decided to book somewhere near the airport where we could see the Northern Lights. Alas, no wake up calls, no little luxuries, okay food with strange serving staff, even stranger person on front desk, pathetically small bathroom towels (bit like drying yourself with a stiffened flannel) and the view outside our window...
