When we first pulled up outside this hotel I was skeptical. It was seemingly in the middle of nowhere next to a power station.
But once we got inside all our preconceptions were blown away.
Our room was a huge and sumptious double overlooking the lava fields, with a very comfortable bed.
There was a lovely restaurant/cafe set within a greenhouse (gorgeous waffles) and a nice sitting room with free tea and coffee and chess sets etc.
The Blue Lagoon was a 10-15 min walk away on a pretty path through the lava fields, and the hotel even provided towels for you to take.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our baggage was lost for the first night and the staff provided us with a toothbrush and toothpaste for free, and were very helpful when it finally arrived at 2am.
