“Perfect, but no fresh fruit for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Country Hotel Anna was the perfect distance from Keflavik airport for our first stop on our Iceland adventure. The hotel only has seven rooms and ours was large with a view east as long as no one parked in our view. Since it was our second night in Iceland we were just getting used to the Icelandic hotel. I wouldn't want to stay in room 6 when it was cold. I didn't see any heat except in the bathroom and the ceilings were high. Bring slippers the floors were tile and cold!! But everything but no fresh fruit at breakfast was perfect. The food was very good. I especially enjoyed the duck. There was excellent skyr at breakfast, which wasn't always the case other places. I found it very interesting to read about Anna, the namesake of the hotel and her adventures both in Europe and the US. There is an interesting exhibit about her. I bought an Icelandic sweater there and after checking prices at a number of other (more commercial) venues the price there was very good and the sweater was exactly what I was looking for. Hotel Anna also has a hot tub, but we didn't try it. There are a lot of hikes from the hotel. We stayed two nights, but longer could be enjoyable.Room 6 had three beds and an electric kettle, the only one we had so far come across. Also included were face cloths, and a hair dryer.

Room Tip: Rooms 6 and 7 have views to the west and doors directly outside.

Ok hotel, but had higher expectations. The location was very nice and the hotel was even nicer seen from the outside. Somebody had written you could hear people cough through the thin walls, we had a room in the old part of the building and still could hear a man snoring. Helpful staff. The interior was mildly said original, eclectic mix of furniture and other decorations. Spacious bathroom, but wasn't that fresh. The restaurants food was very good, as was the breakfast. The hotel was easy to find from the main road, set in beautiful surroundings.

Very disappointing. The walls are very thin so can hear every cough from next door. Menu - I had just looke at the horses in surounding fields so particularly upset that horse meat on menu along with minke whale which only dysfuntional people would chose to eat. I suggest boycotting this place until they redo the menu. Also apart from the waitress the other employees were not cosy hosts but young men who did not know how to smile.

We stayed three nights here and found everything perfectly to our satisfaction. We had a large room with three windows looking in two different equally peaceful directions. The staff are all friendly and helpful and the food is very good, particularly the freshly made bread for breakfast, delicious! The location is very good for a variety of attractions on the south coast. The only thing I would suggest is better fitting curtains on the small windows, as it was daylight all night and on that side of the bed the light was disturbing.

The room rate includes diner and the diner is fantastic. The lamb, salmon and artic char were all fantastic. The location is great...it's situated under a volcano. You can see sheep and cows around the hotel. The staff is friendly and the rooms are great. It's very cosy.

The highpoint of our stay here was not only the location(location,location), and the beautiful horses out back ;but the morning we were having breakfast and we looked out the window and saw the cows running down the driveway towards the road. The innkeeper then left the dining room in a hurry, threw on his hat, jumped on his ATV , sped down the driveway to herd the cows back, sped back to the Inn and continued on as host of the lovely breakfast. Welcome to multi tasking in Iceland !
