We knew this hotel had very poor reviews and it lived up to them. We used this as an overnight stop between Reykjavik and the Snaefellsbaer peninsula as our flight time meant we could not get there with ease the first night. Arrived to be told there was no restaurant service that night which was a pity as some previous reviews had actually said the fish was excellent. We were recommended a good local restaurant in the Settlement centre in Borganes less than 10 minutes drive. Room was small, not clean, lots of hair in the shower, poor sheets, curtains and carpet, in fact everything was worn and tired. They clealry use geothermal water for hot water hence the very eggy smell. In other locations with geothermal water they all used normal heated water to overcome the smell, clealry a cost saving measure rahter than a eco saving measure. Breakafast was just about acceptable but only had a single 2 slice toaster for all the guests, so there was always a wait. The breakfast laid out was minimal and topped up as used. I got the impression they were trying to keep the quantiy eaten to a minimum. The only good point was it was impossible to miss of Route 1 going north. and the views over the sound were excellent. I simply dfail to understand how some reviewers can give this five stars even when it was the cheapest hotel we stayed in whilst travelling in Iceland.
