The whole experience was amazing, the hotel felt both cosy and chalet like while also having all modern amenities. A great base to be able to visit more of Iceland than the usual Reykjavik area and a good starting point for the golden circle. We arrived at the end of October

Beautiful hotel in the countryside of Iceland. We had the Deluxe room which was very roomy and comfy. The owner of the hotel is such a wonderful person, greets each and everyone that's coming to the restaurant and is very welcoming.

We stayed for 2 nights and had the best time. We loved the staff, secluded location, and food! We saw an incredible Northern Lights show on our second night. If you’re going to Iceland, staying here is a must!!!

The location was wonderful with a view of mountains and a river. We also saw the northern lights, and the children really enjoyed the astronomy. Booked as part of a larger package so can't comment directly on value for money, and the restaurant did feel expensive in line with

Sorry unfortunately it was cancelled the evening we were going due to cloud / weather. There is a wake up call for the NOrthern Lights - we were lucky to see this on our first night via the wake up call :-). Just an outstanding hotel

Meals were quite expensive at the Hotel Ranga, as in most of Iceland, but the food, ambience, and service were superb. We did not have a car so got a ride to the Lava Center and Saga Center in town which were well worth visiting (especially the Lava Center) and they had more reasonable, simple fare. Have a wonderful time -Iceland was amazing and otherworldly!

Suites have balcony river view and are lovely. It is difficult to fish in Iceland, if you email the hotel they can send you the name of the outfitter they recommend for fishing. While it looks like it would be easy to just walk to the river and start fishing, they do not have rods for rent and there are many regulations. Enjoy your trip to Iceland!
