We stayed here as it is billed as a perfect hotel to see the Northern Lights and we did indeed see some. However, it is in a little village and so at night there is still quite a bit of light. It is very thoughtfully built though, with huge plate glass windows in the dining room making viewing the sky very easy, plus the staff are very accommodating to people wondering away from their tables to go outside and see the lights, bashing bits of camera equipment around the hallways and generally causing chaos with the staff happily going about their business. Also, if the lights happen at night they do call round each room to wake you up.
The hotel itself is clean, funcational, a string of chalets around a pebble garden with two hot tubs. The rooms are wood, feel very Icelandic with wet rooms rather than bathrooms, no bathtubs. The food was lovely, which is lucky as there isn't anywhere else nearby for a drink/dinner.
The location is great if you are touring the golden circle, at the far flung edge of the route and near to the spas and sights of the circle.
My tip for the Northern Lights would be though to stay sober and when called, jump in the car, a 10 min drive and you'll be out in the country with no other lights.
