This hotel is an older hotel and although clean & comfortable it could do with an update to the rooms in the near future. Meals, dinner & breakfast, whilst we were there were excellent. We were on a group tour so cannot compare the tariff with other accommodation in Iceland. A comfortable stay.

The room was nice, clean and comfortable. The outside looked a little dingy but the inside of our hotel room looked relatively new. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was decent. The hot tub wasn't really a hot tub.... it was more of a giant plastic tub filled with hot water. lol. But we didn't come to the hotel to... More

On the up side, this hotel provided us with certainly the biggest room on our Iceland tour and a great nights sleep. The room was enormous, with two European singles making a large double plus another single, TV, a coffee table and two two seat sofas, a double wardrobe, writing desk and chair, somewhere to place the suitcase, tea and...

We had booked into the Stracta Hotel in Hella but I received a call from Nina at Stracta a few days before to tell me that the Stracta Hotel had experienced a leakage and that the room they had allocated to us was no longer available. She did however book us into the Hvolsvollur Hotel instead and gave us a... More

This hotel is one of the oldest in south Iceland, rooms are OK, possible need renovation, wooden parquet instead of old carpets ? It is a very quiet area, so sleep quality at its best. The restaurant serves traditional icelandicfare, leg of mountain lamb & such. Service is fine, must of the staff is from Poland, only the chef was... More

I can recommend this hotel for good buffet, service and friendly staff. I was guiding a 37 people and the staff did their uttermost to serve customers that had special requests regarding food. Walking us through the buffet and explaining ingredients. Ragnheiður

Upon arrival in the hotel, we had a problem related to the quality of the room. The young lady from the reception, Miss. Roxana, solved the problem with great courtesy, understanding and professionalism. She and the whole team have done everything to make us feel comfortable. Before the departure, she gave us useful advices in connection with places to visit.... More

The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable, nice bathrooms, good space. Dinner was very tasty and excellent breakfast. Most of the workers came from Poland, they were helpful and they did everything to make our stay enjoyable. Unless the manager in the lobby, he seemed frustrated and not enjoying being there. Recommended.

Stayed for 2 nights and it was very nice and the rooms were huge! Good breakfast selection and buffet was great! The hotel also has two hot tubs wich were also very nice. I think this is one of the better hotels I have stayed on in Iceland.

We were on a Southern tour of Iceland so we only stayed here for the one night, however, enjoyed it very much. The rooms were big and spacious and the meals were absolutely delicious. The service was first rate and my only niggle was that even though the Wi-Fi was free, half of our group couldn't connect to it. There... More
