We stayed here for 3 nights as part of an organised tour. The room was a decent size for us both and clean and comfortable. The shower was great (apart from the eggy sulphur smell but you get used to that!!) with shampoo, soap etc provided. Don't wear silver jewellery in the shower though as it taints it. The cold water is fine though and can be drunk.
The management were really friendly and helped by booking taxis etc. for us.
The breakfast was pretty decent - good selection of cold meats and cheeses, cereals and breads.
The only negative thing about this place is how far it is from the centre of town. It rained constantly when we were there so we relied on taxis (which cost about ISK 2700 (£13) each way). I imagine if the weather is nice, it'd be totally different with great views over the sea and mountains - apparently the sunsets are amazing from here- and a pleasant 20-30 minute stroll into town.
