    Really comfy but rustic not in a quaint way
    Our family of 5 stayed here for one night. The building with the rooms is separate from the cafe/check-in area. The staff were babysitting 3 orphan lambs that they allowed us to bottle feed in their pen. That was awesome. The beds/pillows were great. The place is set adjacent to disused farm sheds and barns -- rustic. The view is of the Ring Road but there wasn't much road noise. Don't bother with the dinner at the cafe. It was convenient but gross.

    View Matters!
    This hotel is situated not far from a glacier and the view is beautiful! Our accommodations were clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and the food was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
