This hotel is set in the grounds of Bifrost university but is well equipped. The rooms have floor to ceiling windows which if your room is North facing allows a warmer view of the Northern lights. The hotel has a hot tub, and gym and is next to a Samkraup (UK visitors think Co-op and you get the idea). For cooking utensils and such like you need to ask the girls in the Cafe for access to the store. If this is your first visit to the area there is plenty to see, a short walk allows you to climb the volcano Grabrok and you have easy access to the Snaefellsnes peninsula the Glannis waterfall, hraunfossar and Barnafoss.
For a better selection of food you are better off driving to Borganes and using the Bonus supermarket there. Alcoholic drinks are expensive especially considering it is a university.
I would definitely consider staying here again although put your do not disturb sign out as the room cleaners are coming through your door at 9am!
