we stayed here just the one night on the icelandair northern lights tour, we got the distinct impression though that if you booked this hotel yourself you got a better deal, we looked at the hotel on the internet and saw the modern decor but that we feel is reserved for private customers as is the "included breakfast" the room we had although warm and comfortable was well past its sell by date.The position of the hotel is perfect if the northern lights happening to be performing as it is miles from anywhere. The night we stayed there were only 3 other couples in the hotel but a couple of things would make think twice about staying there when it was busy, there were quite a number of signs reminding people about quite, i expect people may get a little giddy with drink watching the northern lights late at night in the hot tub the other thing was that there is only one kettle for the use of ALL the guests in the hotel and the only way to fill this kettle is to bring it back to the room and take it back to boil, for us this wasn't a problem as only one other couple wanted to use it but if lots of people are wanting a quick cuppa it could take awhile, i know its a little petty but best to know, still a very comfortable hotel with great views just could do better
