This seasonal hotel is basic but the reason you might consider staying here should not be linked to the hotel facilities but as to where the hotel is. We were on a 4WD winter tour so staying here allowed us to see more of the local sights and not have to rush back to more civilised and crowded locations. The... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as the second of 3 hotels on an organised tour. It was definitely the lowest standard of the 3 hotels, but it was fine. It is very remote, so we weren’t particularly concerned that the TV didn’t work, although others in our group were. We had internet access in our room as the router... More

The lure of this hotel is the lonely vista..that is if you like that sort of thing. Since we were on a private escorted tour, I was a little disoriented when I got there, and wouldn't know how to return.I only stayed one night. It seemed to me to be an oasis in the middle of nowhere. The room was... More

Honestly, this hotel is kind of ridiculous. Beyond super expensive, where the price does not match the accommodations at all. Squeaky doors, building exterior falling apart, etc. Worst is that they nickel and dime and make life difficult by not being able to provide change when you pay them - never heard of this before in all my years travelling....

There is not much choice in the highlands. We preferred to stay 2 nights at this hotel than in the hrauneyjar guesthouse. the hotel is quite pricey and does not look much different than other guesthouses from the outside. Wifi didn't work in our room, tv didn't work in our room. receptionist told us it's because of the bad weather... More

We were upgraded to unit 4 which was an apartment with 2 bedrooms, large lounge and kitchen. Ordinary hot tub out back. Also sauna available. I loved the views from the large windows and even got to see the aurora. Breakfast was fine but the dinner was exceptionally good. I had Arctic Char with Skyr with ice cream for dessert.... More

This hotel with Icelandic Farm Holidays was a pleasant surprise in the middle of lava fields. It was small, clean and quiet. The restaurant was wonderful. There is a hot tub available but we did not use it. This was the only hotel we encountered that had a box of tissues in the room! We would stay again.

Highlands hotel is one of two hotels in the area, hence there is not much of a choice when you want to break the journey into the interior Highlands. We stayed in unit 2 which was clean and rather large. There is nothing special to the place, I would say « mediocre» is probably the most accurate word to describe... More

Arrived with a foot of snow on the ground for a two night stay with a travel party. The rooms were freezing and the radiators were off throughout the hotel.

There was also a small room with a bunk bed (no complaints) and a sofa-bed in the living room (not recommended). The large living room was a great space to hang... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Highland is a three star hotel situated at the edge of the Iceland’s most impressive and active volcanic area. From here it is a short distance to many of the most beautiful and popular tourist attractions in the highlands. The area is teeming with great sites for adventure and is the perfect base for visiting as many of them as time allows. It also has a great location to try out all the activities the region has to offer. The vastness and lack of human impact on the surrounding area makes it truly one of the last places in Europe where freedom, natural beauty and solitude are combined in a breathtakingly powerful experience. Hotel Highland offers 16 standard rooms and 4 suites, 2 Family suites for up to 6 people and 2 Luxury suites for up to 4 people. In addition Hotel Highland offers a gourmet restaurant, bar, sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi. The hotel is well accessible by paved road all year round and is only 150 km from Reykjavik. We recommend guests that are planning on staying with us during Winter season to have a 4WD. ... more   less
