We've walked into this hotel looking for a room after walking 26 km in rain and wind looking for shelter. This means that we are a bit biased in our review :) The room we stayed in was basic and small, but it was clean and had a spacious bathroom. The dinner (not included in the price) was excellent - the chef accommodated our desires and changed the dishes as we asked, the food was great. The breakfast was ok, standard buffet.

This was supposed to be our second stay in Skogar, After completting the Landmannalaugar-Skogar trek. Unfortunately we had to cut short our trek in Thorsmork, and could only notify the hotel about the cancellation 2 days in advance. According to the reservation conditions they could have charged the whole sum, but to our great relief chose to accept our explanation and charge nothing at all. Typical Icelandic decency? Maybe, but nevertheless worth mentioning as a well-appreciated, considerate comportment of an honest establishment.

Location of hotel is close to hiking trail, very good. Check in, check out was efficient and all who work were friendly.

The hot tub was very hot and nobody could use it. The sauna was cold and nobody could use it. My bed was horrible other said OK. TV set didn’t work when we used it. Can be our failure.

The restaurant was acceptable and the breakfast good but coffee was definitely not good. If I will be around I could stay again at the hotel but not more than one night.

I can't comment on value as it was part of a package.
The rooms here were very small (literally 2 feet of space around the double bed) and our room was not new, nor renovated. It was clean basic room but we stayed in other motels that where nicer. There were rumours of renovations but we saw no evidence of that.
Excellent location near Skogafoss waterfall that we walked to before breakfast.
Breakfast was fine, but view from diningroom was nothing special.
I felt it was a little long in the tooth in my opinion.

Beautiful location. Friendly helpful staff. Hot tub needs attention. Small boutique Hotel, no lounge or bar.
Excellent food, well presented. Very attractive dining room. Close to Skogafoss, folk museum and black sands in Vic.

We went in here on a chance. The hotel is fairly new, the rooms are very large and the bathrooms very clean and modern. We just ate dinner, I had lobster and my dad had cod. My lobster was 9 lobster tails with salad (great variety of veggies). It was very fresh and delicious! I would definitely recommend staying here. Its the same price as a guesthouse but much more spacious and includes breakfast.

Loved this hotel-small but modern, super clean, friendly staff, hotel situated right next to waterfall (great hike to top and beyond if you're interested), and restaurant with pretty room, sophisticated fresh food. Enjoyed a glass of wine in their hot tub after a long day of hiking-heaven!
