Having planned to stay 2 nights at Hotel Ranga, we eventually left after 4! The hotel is in the south of Icelend, and ideally located to explore the beautiful sights in the surrounding area. I would recommend hiring a car and driving down from Reykjavik - it's an easy drive and there was little traffic on the roads.
The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. Every day they were able to arrange and advise on activities and excursions in the local area.
The food in the restaurant was also great - highly recommend the fish soup!
Also a fabulous bar area with big leather sofas to while away your time drinking expertly mixed cocktails.
Free wireless internet throughout the hotel was an unexpected bonus.
