This review is for the hotel. This was a beautiful and refreshing change after three days in noisy Reykjavik. The country setting is both beautiful and relaxing. The hotel rooms are big, quiet, and clean. There is a great sun room at the end of the hallway which was fun to hang out and read. You can walk directly from the hotel room to the lobby & restaurant area without going outside. Great for when it's raining. The hotel information explained that the hotel used to be a cow barn. The lobby has a pool table.
Staff was very nice. The hotel is outside of town, so we were skeptical of eating there. We were shocked at how good the food turned out to be (see photos). Dinner was delicious. We were told the restaurant closed at 20:00.
The included breakfast was the usual Icelandic fare, but served in a much bigger area.
The hotel has horsebackriding, but we arrived to late to take advantage. We were able to take walks on the country roads around the area which was very scenic. There are rabbits, sheep, horses, and pigs on the farm you can also visit. There is a hot tub in a secluded location. Would have loved to stay another day here and gone horsebackriding and chilled out.
