Ideal base for an Iceland holiday, especially if you don't have your own transport. Airport bus drops you at the campsite and a free bus every morning at 7.15am takes you to the main bus station where most people take an ownward trip.
24 hour supermarket convenience store five minutes walk away as well as delicious bakery (normal opening hours).
Free botanical gardens with pretty cafe next to the site and swimming pool with warm geothermal waters is two minutes walk away.
Showers and kitchen can get a bit crowded around peak times.
Staff very hepful - they recognised us on our return which felt very welcoming.
You can take a scenic coastal walk of about 30 mins into town or there is a bus.
