the bread and jam and hot tub are great. the view is great. there are TWO buses to take to town.
both extremely unreliable, and taxi is $40. The hotel owner overcharged us for food (and would not disclose the cost when asked first) we were vulnerable. i am left with a feeling of being subtly manipulated and played by a very charming fellow. It was an experience i will never forget, of
being in a hotel prison and at the mercy of the manager. really charming, but i end up with
nightmare of a visit to Iceland. when we were lost and terrified at night due to bus mess-ups, owner got us. then charged us for the favor. No way to treat a guest. I seek no revenge,
just a warning to others. I am 70 years old and traveled for over 50 years. Worst experience
ever: due to vulnerability and excessive isolation of so-called hotel.
