We had been camping on Greenland and had a week in Iceland to pamper ourselves on our return to "civilisation". A good move (as it turned out ) as we ended up being trapped in our tents for days when the heavens opened (in fairness to Greenland, it had been fantastic prior to that). We arrived at the Hotel with heaps of damp (and somewhat muddy) rucksacks but the staff could not have been more pleasant, friendly and helpful,. They did not bat an eyelid and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. They had even upgraded our room booking to a suite (for no obvious reason and at no extra cost) and the room was lovely; very comfortable. It even had a balcony and a view towards the harbour. The library and bar were brilliant - simply designed for lounging around in and the collection of historic maps and etchings were fascinating. Breakfast was very good but we had only booked for 1 night as we were heading north. We didn't try the restaurant as we had arranged to meet up with friends elsewhere (before we knew how good this hotel was) but the menu looked very tempting. If we come back to Reykjavik (and I'm sure we will) we will definitely aim to stay here. Congratulations Hotel Holt - and thank you to all the staff!
