The location is great, however, its remoteness also limits your options. This was the first stop on our ring road tour and at the time we had nothing to compare it too. A week later, I can say this was the most disappointing stay of our entire trip. The hotel staff is okay but far from helpful. The chef, who was recommended upon check in, overcooked our fish so bad it was barely edible. This was after wiaiting an hour to be served. Because we had just arrived, we were to embarrassed to say anything, however, we would soon learn the Icelanders know how to cook seasfood, unfortunately, it was just this particular chef who did not. The rooms were clean and nice but nothing special. the internet was down during our stay but the hotel did offer us to use their computer. Overall, nothing to write home about and we would not recemmend.
