We made a weekend trip to Iceland to see the Northern Lights but sadly we did not seea Northern Light. We were left with the suspicion that their appearance may not be as frequent as Discover the Worlld or the hotel would have had us believe. Nevertheless the hotel is in a beautiful location and in snow it was a magical setting. The restaurant was excellent and the staff were friendly and efficient. The decor in the public rooms and bedrooms could hardly be described as chic but it was homely. The manageress appeared to be slightly distrait and we were never convinced that she was makng much effort to see if we could see the Northern Lights. Iceland was however magical and we drove 700 kms over snow to wonderful waterfalls and saw fantastic scenery. Will we return? Certainly in the summer to see the volcanoes.
