Overall, the Natura is a very good hotel.
Very large rooms.
Spotless (like the whole country).
Themed rooms. Ours was dedicated to the Guiness Book of Records tallest man record, a turk who visited the hotel. The room has an oversized chair, appropriate for him but good for a gag photo for anyone under 7 feet.
The restaurant. Good buffet breakfast, very good brunch buffet on weekends.
Airplanes taking off/landing after 7AM and before 11PM.
No AC. We were told that no hotel has it - just open a window (and turn off the heat. Icelanders like to use their plentiful geothermal energy).
Location. It's walkable to downtown, but it's a hike. On the other hand, organized tours always pick up at the hotel, and there's plenty of parking if you rent a car.
Odd room layout. In spite of the size, the layout was odd. Few surfaces, lots of open surfaces, a bench seat against the window the only place to sit (other than the gag chair).
The bath. This might be typical of Iceland, but the tub was very narrow by US standards, and was quite rounded on the bottom. When slippery, it felt quite treacherous.
The high review is really driven by the spa. Beautiful. A pool, hot bath, sauna, and steam bath. Spotless. Total indulgence.
