Fantastic hotel in a peaceful location, perfect for exploring the south of Iceland and setting the northern lights. Food in the restaurant is fantastic, with a great wine list to accompany. Well stocked bar also a highlight. On site observatory highly recommended if the sky is clear too.

Over 5 years ago Hotel Ranga helped us plan our wedding at Seljalandsfoss and hosted our welcome and reception for our guests. The staff, hotel, and restaurant were nothing short of amazing. Of course, after our 5-year anniversary and return to Iceland, we had to stay once again. And yet again, the staff and hotel were just as great as they were over 5 years ago. Whenever we are back to the south coast of Iceland, we will always return to Hotel Ranga; they’ve won us over as lifelong devotees.

Beautiful accommodations to visit the south coast of Iceland. Our stay was taken care of before we arrived. Alexandra arranged fabulous adventures for us. The food was amazing and the care and concern the entire hotel staff had for us and all their guests was 5 star. It was a trip my daughter and I will never forget.

Went with teenage children fro 2 nights, and enjoyed our stay. the owner was charming, and let us know the lights were strong during our dinner which was an added bonus. Because we were doing long day tours, did not use all the facilities, and would have been interested to see the observatory for some stargazing. Exceptional food too... never eaten puffin before !!
