Wonderful buffet after 3 hours of driving. Good food and wonderful caring wait staff. Left both full and happy.A great stop along the way to the ice fields and the southern shore of Iceland.Parking....not a problem.

Booked a 3 night winter special ~ Good value. Hotel is very comfortable & well run with excellent knowledgeable staff. It's located out in the 'boon docks' but that gives it uninterrupted skies to search for the Lights. When the Lights come the staff get you outside to see them.... and they're stunning. The Chef's special set menu is excellent.... More

Stayed here over New Years with some friends and really enjoyed ourselves. You are a bit secluded but we just wanted to relax & wind down and this was the perfect place to do it. The rooms were small but clean. The staff was very friendly, and the food was delicious.

Not overly close to any famous sites or picturesque towns but a good location for touring the south of the island, isolated for Aurora viewing but still accessible - directly off the major road from Reykjavik and the airport (1.5 and 2 hours drive respectively) - upmarket but still warm and friendly. Just right for us. A wood-panelled lodge with... More

This is an amazing place, a must stay if visiting Iceland, it is literally in the middle of nowhere but is luxurious and very homely. From check-in to check-out you are made to feel welcome. Staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean with great views, the food is too die for, the hot tubs are hot and fantastic... More

A beautiful high-end hotel in a good location. The decor is a bit over- the- top. Shiny pine-paneled walls shout "pretentious". We had a suite, which was excellent, with our own jacuzzi tub, bed and sitting area. Excellent toiletries, including body-butter. There are chocolates in the room, a safe and a stocked mini-fridge. The eponymous Ranga Rver flows behind the... More

This was the only traditionally styled hotel we stayed at in Iceland, but the looks didn't matter when there were so many great things to like. The breakfast buffet is extensive, all good quality. We travelled as a couple with a young child. At dinner the owner came to talk with us, so friendly and made us feel special. The... More

We stayed one night at Hotel Ranga hoping to see the northern lights... and although it ended up being too cloudy to see anything, we did enjoy their excellent restaurant (really great service!) and outdoor hot tubs. The rooms have their own doors directly outside, so you can easily go back and forth between your room and the hot tubs.... More

Hotel Ranga is a high quality hotel with staff who know how to give excellent service. This was our third stay. I have never been back to any other hotel abroad but I love it here. As I have said in one of my other reviews one of my favourite things about the hotel is that it is understated and... More
