We had a "room" with shared facilities. The room was so small that it was unpleasant to even think about spending more than the absolute minimum time there. The hotel is gloomy, the breakfast with low quality food.

Having read just the bad reports on TA was worried about what we were facing so inspected the rooms before paying and was pleasantly surprised. So the majority of reports were much more accurate. The rooms were simple but clean and everything worked (plumbing, shower, fittings) and the free Wifi was ample to stream BBC radio. There were five of... More

We were given the key to our room but no information regarding breakfast etc. On entering our room we thought the decor dated but ok and it was... More

My boyfriend and I did a driving tour of Iceland In March 2014 for my birthday. Due to bad weather we ended up staying at the hotel for two nights. However he and I both agreed this was the best place we stayed at during the whole 10 days of our trip! The service we received from the staff was... More

The hotel is conveniently located: just a couple yards from the Ring Road 1, almost next to a supermarket, gas station, restaurant and the nice thermal swimming pool. Rooms are proper and clean with everything we needed. The rooms have very thick walls, that keeps some noise outside but also the wi-fi connection. That was not a problem for us... More
