The Marina takes pride in being off-beat. This shows nowhere more than in the service which is not only friendly but almost neighborly. The staff was sympathetic and genuine in its dealings with me. There was none of the slick, professional attitude found in chain hotels and the graduates of hotel schools. When the bus to the airport was late, hotel employees were concerned and helpful in getting answers to my questions. (The bus showed up when the staff said it would.) The hotel is simply furnished, bright, and clean. The decorations are unusual (e.g., an exhibition of knots) as befits a one-of-a-kind. The bathrooms are minimalist and functional, but there is no marble or granite or any frills in mirrors or cabinetry. The door to our bathroom did not close fully but enough for visual privacy. The restaurant has mostly Icelandic dishes that vary as much as any cuisine does, although if you do not like fish or seafood your choices become more limited. As you might expect, the wine list is adequate but not impressive. The local beer is well worth trying.
