Very Good 8.0
Quiet hotel with secret bonuses
Overall a nice stay. Had issues at checkin since I used a 3rd party to book the hotel. I paid for the stay but the hotel never got paid so I had to make a couple calls to get things straightened out. Hot tub was a bonus, great place for stargazing!!! Was happy that breakfast was included. Definitely the place to connect with your significant other since there was no TV which was kinda nice :) location was nice for the attractions I wanted to check out.

Lovely stay!
We were between Thingvellir and the south coast and needed a place to stay. We were welcomed by John who couldn’t have been nicer! We were four so we booked a bungalow and it was wonderful. Two large rooms each with a bath connected by a inside door. Fantastic. Beds were great. Nothing in the vacinity so we ate dinner. It was good, service was great, our waitperson even told us about the app to look for northern lights and in line with Icelandic pricing.
