“Warm, clean, and very comfortable”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We had a lovely spacious room in the new building. Nice big bed, (I do hate stingy hotel double beds), plus a seating area, and en suite shower room. Breakfast included a decent range, though we stuck with the self service waffles! Good thing I don't have a waffle iron at home, I'd be eating them every day! Dinner was good, though choices were a bit limited.
Staff were friendly and helpful, all in all, I can't fault the place. A lovely place to return to after a cold day sightseeing in that Icelandic wind.

Rooms in the new building are large, clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and the food is very good, if a little pricey. The breakfast (included in the price of our room) was excellent. As others have pointed out, the menu is a little limited if you're staying for a while: there are only five options of main course. However, alternative food options in Vik are limited and it is worth staying in the area for a while so this is a minor gripe. Would definitely recommend.

The inside of the buildings looked like they were made of wood, very cozy feeling. We had dinner there and the food there was the best I had in Iceland, but was rather expensive. It was buffet style and I think we were charged 80 euros for two people.

My husband and I stayed here during a romantic getaway and loved it. The staff is welcoming, the hotel is clean, updated and cozy. The restaurant was wonderful for dinner and for breakfast in the morning. Wonderful place!

We stayed here as we travelled the southern portion of the country and it was a great experience. Out of the way and isolated against the city of Vik made it a great place to stay. The place was reasonably priced with a great resturaunt with fabulous food. Have the smoked salmon starter. Breakfast was very tasty and the staff was helpful. The rooms were quiet, minus the wind that howled all night, but that just made it better.

The rooms of this hotel are very nice. This is little outside of the Vik town, so perfect for those who want to stay away from city during holidays. The hotel is surrounded by hills and have a very nice landscape all around.

I stayed at this hotel many times, both on vacation and as a tour-guide. As always, the friendly hospitality of Björgvin and Halla was superb! Strategic location and accessibility. Very nice to take a trip to the highlands just behind the hotel, to Þakgil. Or simply relax in the hot-tubs...
