A nice lodge with very friendly staff! Rooms are very spacious and modern. Buffet area features coffee | tea available at all times, and seating areas with nice views. The breakfast buffet itself was very nice, with phenomenal croissants to boot! Laundry services are offered, but are not typically available until the late afternoon/evening. Vík is 15 minutes away, with the popular Dyrhólaey and Reynisfjara beaches within close proximity as as well.
We initially booked one of the glamping tents. We do a lot of camping in Colorado and thought this would be fun in Iceland. The glamping didn't work out so well. We arrived about 5PM after a great day of sightseeing. We checked in and were told where to find our tent. It was across a field. No big deal. But when we got to the tent we found water on the floor inside the test. The canvas tent was very faded and had black splotches that looked like mold. The sheets looked really old. So old that it was hard to tell if they had been washed. It had been damp the day we arrived and the sheets also felt a bit damp. We went back to the check-in desk and politely (my wife is the mistress of politeness!) informed the receptionist of our concerns. She said she'd go check. We headed off to dinner in Vik and while there got a text telling us we had the option of a room in one of the lodges. When we returned we checked the room out and immediately decided to move. This room was in a newly renovated addition and it was very swanky: new bed linens; new everything.... It was very quiet and comfortable. Others have mentioned a shared bathroom--this room has its own big, new, clean bathroom. So what could have been a very uncomfortable night turned out to be just fabulous. We had not regrets about giving up the glamping! The buffet breakfast was just fine. Parking is onsite; wifi is free and fast. I gave this an average rating to factor in the bad glamping and the excellent room we eventually got.…
We really enjoyed a day in there. Breakfast was great with freshly baked bread and buns, there was NO shortage of hot water like in the hotel nearby and our room was really clean. If you care about making food yourself, there is also fully equipped kitchen to common use. 10/10, wish we could stay longer.
This place was so grim. It was nothing like the pictures. The beds were dirty and it was very noisy and cold. The breakfast was horrible. The pastries were mouldy and the coffee was stale. I would never stay here again. This was the worst place I have ever stayed. AVOID! AVOID! AVOID!
Very clean, comfortable beds, nice views, decent breakfast…. Breakfast was included with price of room. Location was attractive, close to Vik, beautiful pastoral views and easy access to the ring road. We stayed inside the converted house, but there were many other options including clamping tents. A nice alternative to the standard hotel.
