    beds not very good.

    What is the primary purpose of a hotel: a comfortable night sleep. Eldestar failed miserably. The bed are already small and they put an even smaller pad on top of it. The pillows were as flat as a pancake, maybe an 1" thick. I don't get it. How much does a pillow cost, is this the place to save money. The front desk told me I could have asked for more pillows, but why not do it right ion the first place. I would have needed 3 extra pillows, not the way to go. Staff was by the way friendly, quick and efficient. Dinner was OK, not great. Not the fault of the hotel, but rather of a bunch of rude guests. It was the weekend and 1 AM loud music was started by the bunch of drunks. Did not last, but enough to wake us up.

    Unique Hotel - Great Location - Comfortable Clean

    A unique hotel decorated with horse motif throughout the hotel and rooms. Each room is named after a different horse and outside the room it tells the story of the horse for which your room was named. There are horseshoes to hold the curtains open, horsehead decals on the windows, horse artwork, horse photos and more. The location couldn't be better with major tourist sites located just a short drive away and KEF airport just an hour away. The hotel is actually quite large, even though it doesn't appear that way from outside. Lots and lots of rooms inside. Parking was free right outside the room. The check-in process was okay, just don't arrive early. Check-out process was a breeze. The breakfast was really good and had a lot of options (waffles!). The room was clean and comfortable with lots of storage and room to relax. The bathroom was nice with a fair shower. Would stay here again on next visit to Iceland.

    This hotel is in a ranch, so expect a focus on horses! They offer both horseback riding and hot tubs which we enjoyed. Our room was solid, but it was missing/needing a blackout curtain. It only had a privacy curtain. Beds are firm. Most of all, staff was extremely friendly, communicative, and attentive! They took care of all our needs and wants quickly. Overrall, I would stay here again happily.

    The room was clean and warm. The breakfast was good. The shower was clean, and it was nice that the hot water came out very quickly. Would stay again!

    Charming, clean, delightful

    We were delighted with our stay here! It was right off of the Golden Circle, and the room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff were the friendliest that we encountered in Iceland. We decided to splurge on the expensive dinner, which did not disappoint, and the breakfast, too, was great. We also took advantage of the hot tubs, which have a wonderful view.

    This horse ranch is a convenient and reasonably priced stopover for travelers as well, particularly if you hike to the nearby thermal river. Nice and very helpful staff.

    Nothing to complain

    Well equipped & managed, very clean accommodation. A little bit expensive but worth it. Breakfast was also decent. I will definitely go again.

    Confortable for one night

    the room is large, modern. Friendly staff. Attention, bad sound insulation between the rooms, we heard everything that happened next. The breakfast is ok.

    Great Location and breakfast

    This was a cute property. I stayed in the guesthouse, which is across the field from the main hotel (a 2 minute walk). Everything was clean, beds were comfortable. I loved the location! It was great after driving the Golden Circle and then exploring the South Coast. It's also 10 mins from the amazing Reykjadular thermal river. Breakfast was great! Nice selection of meats, cheese, pastries, yogurt, eggs, bacon, and waffles. My only complaint was the noise and light. The floors are all tile and there is little insulation between rooms. I could fully hear 2 people having a conversation in normal voice in the common area. I also got woken up every morning at 6:30am when people woke up because the doors are very loud constantly opening and closing and rolling luggage. The window shade is also not sufficient for keeping out the nonstop sunlight.
