The hotel has a lovely foyer in which you can enjoy a drink and many people can comfortably wait for their excursions. We found there to be plenty of storage for two people for three nights in a 'superior room'.
The breakfast is good, with a special organic food section, coffee pots on each table and lovely hot chocolate in the machine. There's even miso soup if that's your thing.
The bathroom was also lovely with a bath and separate shower. If you know about Iceland you won't be surprised to hear that there's plenty of hot water with good pressure! In our room we had dispensers with shower gel/soap but no other toiletries.
A couple of slight quirks - firstly, the double bed was two singles pushed together and made up as a double, apart from the duvets, of which we had two singles. I imagine if you asked this could be changed but we didn't find this an issue. Secondly, the restaurant didn't have a vegetarian option for the main course - the chef kindly made something for me but I would have liked to have seen something on the menu. Worth noting if you're a fussy vegetarian.
Re the wi-fi: if good connection in the room is a priority it's worth checking it before you unpack as our room didn't have the strongest connection (room 554). This wasn't an issue for us especially however.
