Some friends decided to get married in Iceland and picked the hotel Glymur for their nuptuals as there is a lovely little church just a short walk away. I won't go on about the wedding but the staff at the Glymur did a fantastic job in assisting with their plans and made it a day to remember.
We decided to splash out a bit on a cabin at the Glymur. My word, these are simply gorgeous. Spacious, warm, fantastic views - you could not ask for more. They really have the wow factor and are well worth spending the extra dosh. All are surrounded by decking and have a hot tub outside. This was my first experience of a hot tub - soaking in the warm water drinking champagne and looking out at the fantastic views. Life really does not get much better than this.
Food was also fantastic at the Glymur. Breakfasts were the help yourself kind but with a lot of variety and enough choice for me (vegetarian). Evening meals had been pre-arranged by the wedding party but it was clear some thought had gone into the vegetarian option which was appreciated.
