Very Good 8.0
Great property if traveling east of Vik. A little to much light pollution. Dinner was good.

This was a perfectly charming hotel. The views of the lake from the room are beautiful and relaxing (I appreciated the binoculars in the room for bird watching!). The breakfast was delicious and the bistro is adorable. It’s a great, quite location, just minutes from town. It’s also a good halfway point between Vik and Jokularson.

Amazing place to stay!
This was our absolute favorite place we stayed during our trip to Iceland. Every amenity was thought of, the location was beautiful, and the staff were over and above friendly and helpful. We were able to have dinner there as well and the food was fantastic. We would definitely recommend the Magma Hotel!

The property is located near a lake and is very tranquil. The people at the property are really nice. There are twelve cabins which are large, the beds are comfortable and the rooms have a great view. The internet is decent. The only thing is I had to change the settings. The breakfast was good. The property has dinner but it has to be pre-ordered by 5:30 PM. There is ample free parking space. We loved the property.

The rooms at the Magma Hotel are amazing! They have 12 little cottages, and despite being in a row, you can't see your neighbors and all you see is a lake and the countryside - it feels like you're alone! The turf roofs are cute as well. The mattress was comfortable. The service was excellent!

Lovely setting and unique property with exceptional service.

Exceptional 10.0
This was one of the best hotel experiences I’ve ever had. The property was remote, peaceful, and incredibly beautiful. The staff knew us by name and the service was amazing! The dinners at the bistro were a bit on the pricey side but were the best restaurant option in the area by far, and the food was the best I had in Iceland. Highly recommend eating there at least a few nights of your stay! The free breakfast included was also amazing! I wish I could have stayed weeks longer or moved in. The views out the windows of the rooms were stunning, everything exceeded expectations. Roads are well paved in the area so it was easy to drive there by 2WD car. This was the perfect stopping point for us between Vík and Jökulsárlón glacier lake. One of the coolest experiences of our Iceland trip was this hotel - don’t miss out!
