We booked three rooms at Hotel Laxnes in July. We were given three studio rooms on the ground floor and they were spacious with cooking facilities if you needed them and a splendid view of the hills beyond. The beds were comfortable and the rooms very quiet.
Iceland is a wonderful country to visit and Hotel Laxnes is a great base for a holiday because it is just a short drive from Reykjavik and some of Iceland’s other major attractions. It is unique and amazing country and the people were so friendly and made us feel very welcome.
We hired a car for day trips around the many sights. Driving in Iceland is relatively easy because the roads are uncongested and the other drivers courteous (but get yourself a proper road map).
We contacted the hotel before we left the UK and Shaun the hotel manager organised car hire and a taxi from the airport at very reasonable rates, all the staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. The atmosphere of the hotel is amazingly laid back and understated; we really did feel at home there.
Thank-you Shaun and everyone else whose hard work gave us such a fantastic holiday.
