Ok, yes. This place is off the main path one may take in Southern Iceland but, personally, I'd make the trip again. It is not a fancy hotel; you're not going to be able to book a massage appointment or even get food delivered so...More

Not sure as we were there in October with a Rav 4. Best to ask hotel for advice. We booked everything through Guide to Iceland, incl the car. Great folks to deal with. You will love this hotel!
