Stayed here as part of the 'Discover The World' Iceland experience. The building we stayed in was a separate cabin with around 15 rooms our cabin. There are two bunk beds in the room and a table and chair behind the door. Slightly cramped but as there were only three of us we used the spare bunk bed for our bags. Hotel has its own field area where we found a ball for some football in the snow. The farm has many animals including a raven and two very friendly Labradors who loved snow and the company. Dinner was nice but we were in an extra room and not the main restaurant so we had different food. As the hotel is in the countryside, it is a great place to see the Northern Lights. Saw them but not much at around 10:30 bright and amazing around 11:15-11:30 time. Great hotel overall but only stayed here one night.
