Cabins are cosy and comfortable with a hot shower. Kettle, fridge and cooktop with minimal pots and pans. Just what you need for an overnight stop. Plates and cutlery were dirty and needed to be washed but bedding and bathroom was clean.

Seeing some of the reviews here, we expected the worst. But we had a great stay and would probably stay again! The check-in is in the restaurant. When we arrived, the (only) waitress was very busy with the tables, so check-in took some time. Not off to a great start... We stayed for one night in a cottage with private...

We had a nice and cosy cabin close to the water. It was easy to find and the restaurant served really good food. The hostess was really nice. We only stayed one night but would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Booked and cancelled within their policy allowance date, but they charged couple days later, and refused to refund back. Show them their own policy, the confirmation email they sent to me did not work. They are a mugger. After reading all reviews, kind of satisfying our family didn't step into this place!

We were booked here as part of our tour, and having read the reviews knew it would be basic, but there is basic and there is basic. The cabins are old and in need of an upgrade or in my opinion a bull dozer. The setting is lovely next to a river and not far off the main road, it...

Hotel which is a selection of cabins and a main check in/restaurant area. Saw the northern lights here.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Ideal location to explore the southern region of Iceland. Supermarket, petrol station are nearby. Cabin rooms are clean. The best thing in being in this quiet town is that there is less light hence chances to spot the northern light is higher. We spotted one magnificent aurora.
