Large rooms, friendly staff
Large spacious rooms, super friendly staff! Studied in the newer rooms and they were really nice. Our favorite hotel on the whole trip. Great breakfast too. This is a couple minutes outside of Vik and if the northern lights are out, you could see them easily here.

New hotel run by very nice people. Not sure all the construction is finished yet. My wife got locked in the bathroom and the door didn't line up so she couldn't get out. There was nowhere to plug in the kettle unless you balanced it on the toilet. But I think it's still a work in progress. Amazing people tho who made us dinner even after they were closing the kitchen.

Storm caused us to stay
We got caught in a storm and had to get a room for the night. The hotel was beautiful, the staff was fantastic. Lucas our bartender was awesome! If we come back to Iceland we will definitely stay there!

It was a wonderful stay
It was a wonderful stay, the room was spacious and comfortable. The location was perfect for our trip between the Vatnajökull glacier and the Keflavik airport. We didn't go into the geothermal "hot tub" since it was so cold outside, but it looked great! Bonus: Netflix on the TVs :)

Good stay in the south of Iceland
We stayed two days visiting two waterfalls (seljandsfoss and skogafoss) as well as the black sand beach on the way from hvergardi and then visited solheimjokull and the plane wreck the following day before continuing to head west. This was the perfect spot to be in between while traveling. Staff was very kind when we had wuestions upon checkin. Breakfast was great since Iceland food is so expensive and there were many options. It was nice to have product in the shower as well. Overall, we had a nice stay and didnt spend too much time hanging around the hotel. The hot tub was not warm enough to sit in during the winter and the sauna was useless. I would also recommend driving to Vik for food if you have the choice. $50 buffet is not worth it when there are more options for similar price about ten minutes drive. We were very grateful for the location and ease of booking and cost for the area.
