These cabins are some way from anywhere - so to arrive in awful wind and rain to find a lovely warm welcome, cosy and immaculately clean cabins with wonderful large modern wet room bathrooms was just so relaxing. Good range of TV channels/tea tray and large shelf unit as well as a few wall hooks. Couldn't use the hooks over the tea tray though, or all our clothing there would have been gently steaming, and we couldn't move the tea tray. Just a wee point they could note.
The cabins are in three lines and I am guessing some are newer than others. You walk just a few yards to the restaurant block for supper/breakfast.
Supper was amazing - I cannot guess how they produce so much of such quality in such an isolated spot. 4,900 ISK for two of us with a main, coke and wine. Fish, horse steaks and minute steak offered (much thicker than we usually get in UK and melted like butter so well cooked). I think the chef would be the Toti everyone keeps mentioning. Very friendly chap - the blonde lady serving a supper was more reticent. Breakfast was usual contintental selection with a hot 'casserole' option described as bread/cheese and vegetables. Good coffee here. There was a delightful German lady serving at breakfast. We were so pleased we stayed here.
The valley is known for its Icelandic horses which are seen everywhere. There are wonderful views out to the sea from the backs of the cabins, which all have little seating areas outside each back door. No Northern Lights as cloud cover quite thick, but haunting and beautiful all the same. Lots of different birds for the ornithologists out there. They have some home made preserves and craftwork on sale in the little lounge area in the restaurant.
