This hotel is situated about 30 minutes from Keflavik and about 15 mins from Reykjavik. Most excursion companies will pick you up so this isn't a problem, but Taxis are expensive and buses are infrequent at the weekends, so the distance out of town could be a problem for some.
The staff at the hotel were excellent and friendly - nothing was too much trouble and they definitely made our stay much easier.
I had a superior single room which was spacious and hade everything... Fridge, small stove, microwave, kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery! More like a small apartment really. The bed was really comfortable, the room was clean and everything worked although the bracket for the shower was broken so I had to hold it by hand.
I was there in June, so it is the season of almost 24 hour sun and the curtains were thin, so they could do with thicker curtains or shutters to block out the light. EIther that or take an eye mask. Rooms were well insulated from sound, either that or the other guests were very considerate.
Breakfast was a "continental" buffet of breads, ham, cheese, preserves etc - nothing special, but certainly enough to get you going for the day. The orange and apple "juice" is best avoided though - not sure what it was but it's far from fruit!
There's a little shop next door - "Snaeland" where you can pick up snacks, sweets, drinks, ice-creams etc, which came in very handy. Bust stops, shops and a few places to eat nearby.
All in all, very happy with my stay. Only real problem was the distance from Reykjavik centre, but this is not insurmountable. Would definitely consider it again,
