To put this in context, we only stayed at this hotel because our planned hotel ( Fosshotel Skaftafell) cancelled our reservation a week before travelling in favour of a film crew, even though we had booked 11 months previous! Therefore with no other options in the vicinity we had reluctantly agreed to this booking. First impressions are of a youth hostel with accomodation to suit. The room we were given was in a seperate building and was so small that suitcases had to be stored end on in order to move about the room. The room itself was however clean and comfortable. The hotel does have a restaurant but with a single menu that changes daily. The food was piping hot and the lamb dish on second day particularly nice. However had we not have had the meals paid for as part of Fosshotel compensation, we would have considered the cost very expensive and poor value.None of the rooms have tv's (which I like) so everyone tends to congregate with after meal coffee in the reception/lounge area. This made for a much better travelling experience and this was a particularly welcoming and comfortable area, with loads of books on Iceland and the local area to peruse. The big plus here though is the staff - very friendly and welcoming. If in the area again would I stay here - maybe.
