First off, this hotel was everything i expected and more. My first night there had me worried as there was nothing around to do in the evenings outside of the city center but we soon fell into the relaxing pattern of having a few games of pool while purchasing a few drinks from the bar in the evenings. The nights were taken up by the search for the elusive northern lights. I stayed at this hotel because of the reviews i have read about the lights apprearing above the hotel. I was not disappointed. Having went out on the excursion the night before we were very disappointed to only see a glimmer of the lights. The night after was spent seated under the window in our room from 11pm - 130. We saw the lights 3 times and once in its full glory across the whole sky. That was the only night in 4 that the lights were seen though. U have to have a clear cloudless sky. The Blue lagoon is a must and the lovely staff there can book all the excursions for you. The bus easy to use and going into town was not a problem. Special thanks to Shaun, Nunu and Riato for being so friendly and helpful. Finally, Shaun, as promised: Albert Albert Albert, the loveliest man ever. By the, we got engaged while in Iceland, so the place will forever be special to us, we will definitely return 1 day.
