Margret was so nice and helpful during our stay. It’s a clean room with a nice breakfast in the morning. The hotel is on a hillside on the outskirts of town with windows facing the ocean. Great for viewing Northern lights if they are out. I would recommend this hotel while travelling east in Iceland.

A great seven room boutique style hotel, just nestled outside Vik on a hill overlooking the sea. Nice size rooms with a very comfortable bed and the view from our room is beautiful. Ample breakfast selection ranging from eggs, waffles, cold cut meats etc. Would we stay here again? Absolutely. We are still in room 7 until Thursday!

During our week long vacation in Iceland we stayed at a different hotel each night, and the Volcano Hotel was by far our favorite. It was so comfy and clean, and the adorable furnishings made it extra cozy. The staff was friendly and so helpful, they even offer eggs made fresh when you arrive at breakfast (rather than the ones that sit in a tray until they're rubbery). The location is great too in between spectacular sights like Dyrholaey, the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, and black sand beaches; but close enough to Vik to allow convenient access to services and restaurants. Honestly the Volcano Hotel is the one property where I wish we had stayed for multiple days, and especially nights. Because possibly the best thing they do is keep it dark outside at night, which is important when you're hoping to see the Aurora. Every other place we stayed had lights outside every window which made it impossible to see the sky. Our room at the Volcano Hotel had a big beautiful picture window with nothing outside but dark sky at night. There were no Northern Lights that night, but there were sheep grazing right outside in the morning. We hope to return someday and will definitely stay longer next time!

This was a great stop on our first night going counterclockwise on the Ring Road. We were checked in promptly, Margrét at the front desk was very helpful in getting us in and answering our questions about the area. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel is right on the main highway but set back enough that noise was not a problem even with our room facing the road and the windows open. The only noise in the morning were from the sheep in the neighboring property. Breakfast was excellent. It's a bit pricey, but it seems just about everything is in Iceland. Far better value than our hotel in Reykjavik was. If we ever have the opportunity to travel this way again, we'd definitely aim to return to Volcano Hotel.

Not a big hotel but comfort and service it is comprable to a 5 Star Hotel..Quiet and yet on the number 1 highway. Close to many of the tourist sights in the south. Could easily soend a few days here. A hearty breakfast is included and a good start to the day.
