We stayed in this hotel in November 2012 having found it online. Two days after the non-refundable immediate payment reservation was made, and one day after payment was taken from my credit card, I received an email from the hotel telling me that they could not accept my credit card and I needed to provide another one.
I had a very similar issue in the Fosshotel Dalvik in Northern Iceland in 2011.
Fosshotel Lind did email me again later in the day to say 'the payment had now gone through', but the payment had actually been taken around 24 hours before the first email, so rather odd that they wanted further card details (in 2011 I was told the Dalvik branch of the chain had LOST my credit card details and i needed to provide them again, but I had forgotten this until I had issues again this time).
The hotel was clean and nice and very quiet although really close to the city centre. There is a public swimming pool close by and the reception staff were helpful in telling me how to reach it (although they did not know the opening times) and equally helpful when leaving luggage on the day we left.
The breakfast staff were less helpful - no coffee (as well as no bacon, no sausages and a few other things) at 09:15 when breakfast is served until 10:00 and no member of staff in sight. Everybody was drinking hot chocolate so we knocked on an unmarked door to discover 3 members of staff in a back room - two of whom immediately ran off. Not really the service one expects.
