“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed November 24, 2011

The hotel has a lovely view with a woodland setting. The owners are very straightforward, welcoming and helpful. Modern, comfortable accommodation throughout. Log fire reception and nice touches of art, an internet point for guests to use.
Personally very impressed and grateful to owners and staff for their help during our stay.

After our three night stay, we were surprised that Hotel Natur is considered to be the best hotel in Akureyri (haven't stayed at the others, of course). First, it is at least 10 minutes by car from the town, although it is that much closer to the Lake Myvatn area, if that's on the agenda. It is a very simple but clean accommodation. The breakfast is minimal, particularly if meats aren't your thing. The best aspects are the owners, who are friendly and helpful, and the view of Akureyri across the bay, so ask for a room with a view. The hotel is reasonably priced for Iceland @ $178 per night, since everything in Iceland, except medical care (which we needed after rolling down a mountain!), seems expensive to us Americans.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, even though the parking lot is part of the view

Very clean and well equipped. Price sensible. Location is convenient on route between Myvatn area and Akureyri. Breakfast was only average.

My wife and I stayed here for just one night, but out of the 6 lodgings we stayed in in Iceland this was by far the most welcoming one, and combined with the amazing scenery we wished we had based ourselves here for several nights.
We were greeted by the college aged son of the family who owns the property and he ushered us personally to our room, and then he helped us get a reservation at a premium Akureyri restaurant. On check out we had a nice conversation with the daughter at the front desk and later we chatted with the owner himself, who was doing a little carpentry to get a new room open for use.
The breakfast was terrific and plentiful. In summer the sunset/sunrise is an experience to remember.
We hope to get back to Akureyri someday and we will hopefully have a chance to stay at Hotel Natur.

During an organized bus tour through Iceland, I have stayed at this hotel for one night.

This was the best hotel we had during our trip. The family running the hotel was very nice and accomodating, the food excellent, the rooms quiet, spacious and clean (they could have done with a cupboard instead of just a shelf, but that's my only complaint) and the beds comfortable. Wifi is available in the room and there's also a computer in the lobby.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great stopping point on our way to Huasavik. Room was comfortable and very clean. The owner was gracious and friendly. Breakfast was included in our rate and was standard toast, cereals, yoghurt, cold cuts, cheeses, bread, juices, coffee and tea. Located in a very peaceful surrounding with nice views.
