Arrived with a foot of snow on the ground for a two night stay with a travel party. The rooms were freezing and the radiators were off throughout the hotel. We were the only party staying there, but were locked out of the bar and restaurant area (which we later found out was exceptionally warm!) until dinner was ready to... More

We stayed in an apartment and found it quite comfortable. The bathroom was very small, but it was nice to have a kitchen. The master bedroom was very nice. There was also a small room with a bunk bed (no complaints) and a sofa-bed in the living room (not recommended). The large living room was a great space to hang... More

fantastic location just at the edge of Landmanalugar, the must see wild region of Iceland. A very warm welcome and a nice cooking at the restaurant. Rooms are simple and clean. At the farm which belong to the same owner a few kilometers before, you can receive precious advise for your trip in the region; don't miss it.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a part of a tour. The rooms are basic but warm and clean as is the rest of the property. The staff were indifferent at best. The dinner was very mediocre and breakfast was poor. Before our stay the had been snow which had turned into sheet ice all around the entrance and... More

I was first taken aback when we arrived and had to negotiate 2 feet of snow to get to the reception, but what an incredible place. Completely isolated, with basic rooms but very good breakfast and evening meal and the best place to see the Northern lights. I will never forget this hotel.

this hotel initially appears as a block of portocabins and you will be very afraid as you enter the reception area that your youth hostelling days are back. however dont fret, its warm and cosy inside, set in the middle of absolutely nowhere with a comforting hot tub and sauna out back. the staff are very friendly and the food...

We stayed for two nights as part of a party of 13. Lots of snow around in February. Very windy. They said as bad as it usually gets, but it was quiet enough inside. The room was spacious. The shower was lovely. The breakfast was good. My wife enjoyed the dinner. There is a pleasant room to sit for a... More

We stayed here for two nights during our 'Discover the World' Northern Lights and Volcanos tour. The hotel was OK, a bit basic but functional. The small rooms had tea and coffee and the en suite was fine. The food was good and everything seemed to be done by the two members of staff, who were very friendly. The best... More

This is where we saw the magical Northern Light. The staff will alert you if the Light appears. We found the staff were very friendly, helpful through out. The food was excellent and the hotel was very clean. However, we found our room was very compact, not enough heating in sub zero temperature ( I had to ask for extra... More

Let me start by saying that it is important not to be put off by the external appearance of the hotel - or the reception area. This really is a cracker of a hotel! First, depending on which direction you approach the hotel, it is important to leave plenty of time for the trip because this hotel really is rural... More
