    The property was well located in that it was close to the Blue Lagoon and the airport. The restaurant was very nice (great views) and well prepared food. I would stay here again in a heart beat!!!!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Property was very quaint and away from EVERYTHING. If you are into that, great. We loved it for the 2 nights. It is like 500 yards from the blue lagoon location. The only drawback to this hotel is the geothermal plant right next door. Just the lights. Staff woke us up to see the northern lights, however once we got dressed and ran out, they never returned. That’s the way it works. Good days and bad days. Overall, the hotel was very nice. Staff was great. Location was fine. Would definitely recommend.

    You’ll see Northern Light from this Inn

    Great hotel with restaurant. You’ll see Northern Lights from this Inn and no need to book a tour to see Northern Lights. It’s 20 minutes from Keflavik Airport, 15 minutes away from Blue Lagoon wherein you can also ride a bus going downtown.

    Our room was clean, available upon arrival, the restaurant was good (albeit expensive), breakfast was good and the wake up call service for the Northern Lights was exactly what we wanted.

    A lovely location walking distance from the Blue Lagoon. If you are traveling in the Winter, its also a spot to view the northern lights. The staff are very welcoming. It's a bit like staying with family!

    Staff was very accommodating especially with our early arrival and late checkout. Free shuttle to and from Blue Lagoon was convenient. Transportation to and from airport was convenient and reasonably priced. We would not hesitate to stay there again and would recommend it to others.
