Came to Iceland on a fly drive, B&B basis. First thing that gets you it is a good 3/4 hour drive from the airport to Reykjavik this was my first shock as last time we flew into Reykjavik the airport was in the city. The drive in is fine though with good direction signs.
The hotel is about 15 to 20 mins from the city centre traffic depending but should the urge take you, use the no 15 bus into town the stop is outside the hotel. The hotel is well situated to tour the south west corner of Iceland but other areas outside are a bit far for day trips and Pingvillar Is only 3/4 hour drive.
Accommodation is fair to good we had a studio with a fridge, two ring electric hob and TV but this was only on ones or twice as we where not in Iceland to watch TV.
Breakfast is again ok but I would like to see a bit more variety on offer.
Your welcome is fantastic and nothing is a problem to the staff, and I would recommend the little bar to relax after your day out, as the staff go out there way to make you fell like it is your local. But as with all things in Iceland beer is expensive, but there is a pool table and games to keep you occupied.
I ask my self would I stay again well yes I would thanks to the staff for a good holiday.
