The hotel and it's restaurant are quite impressive, especially given its isolated location. Yes, slightly expensive, but quite frankly, not much more than the rest of Iceland. Luckily stumbled upon this place last minute, as the other hotel we were supposed to stay at was basically closed without amenities due to the off-season. Dinner was amazing, creative, and good wine list. The Mbiance of the sitting room near the bar was a great way to end the evening. Northern lights aplenty at this location too!
