We visited the Fosshotel Husavik for 2 nights on an organised tour of Iceland and found it by far the most disappointing hotel of what was otherwise an excellent trip. The building is a bit old and tired but lacked even the attention of a good clean and the attitude of the staff was very disappointing.
We know that out tour organiser had requested double rooms for us but almost everyone was put in a twin room, when our guide discovered this 'error' she questioned the receptionist who said that there was nothing he could do and that it was not possible for the beds to be pushed together. What he really meant was that they could not be bothered to do this - in our room there were 4 separate configurations in which the beds could be successfully joined.
The poor attitude to guests continued at dinner when an incorrect number of vegetarian meals had been prepared... one of our party offered to share his starter with one of the unlucky ones and so asked for an empty plate to be brought - but the restaurant manageress simply said that this was ridiculous and flatly refused to bring one!
I can't comment on value or pricing as this was part of a package but the other hotels on our trip were much better and it may be that the Fosshotel is the only place in Husavik that takes groups - I certainly wouldn't book in here if I had a choice.
