Spent 2 nights here on a recent trip around the island and it can definitely say it was the nicest hotel we stayed in while in Iceland. The hotel was very modern and minimalist and very well appointed. I remember the cost being pretty steep, but sometimes when you spend 10 days hiking and climbing - you deserve to splurge...

After travelling for a few days in iceland without sight of the northern lights, we rewarded with a short but spectacular display of northern light just before dinner time. In fact we almost forgotten about dinner we thought we made reservation for 8.30pm. After checking it we were getting ready for dinner when our guide told us to go outside...

We originally booked a standard room but when we got to the hotel the refrigerator and one of the lights was broken, so we were upgraded to a deluxe room with a glacier view. That room was awesome! Very modern, with heated floors outside the shower area and nice fixtures. Dinner at the restaurant was delicious, and the free breakfast...

This is a beautiful hotel in the middle of all that Iceland has to offer. The rooms are very modern and have an amazing view right out to the night's sky. The rooms were clean and comfy. We also enjoyed dinner at the hotel restaurant - delicious food and very friendly staff.

Stayed one night whilst doing the ring road. We stayed in 12 Hotels whilst in Iceland and this place was our favourite. The location is easy to find from the ring road. We arrived after dark and were checked in very efficiently by a lovely welshman who informed us we had a complimentary upgrade to our room. He was also...

We reserved for a 2 night stay at this hotel because the reviews were so good. The hotel us very nice. We were however extremely disappointed because I believe they bought a load of box springs on sale and forgot to buy mattresses. The bed was as hard as sleeping on the ground in a tent. On the second night...

My husband and I both really liked this hotel. We stayed at 8 hotels during our ring road drive and this was one of the best. We booked the suite and it was worth it. The view from the room was beautiful 180degrees+. The bar in the lobby was great and there were a lot of drink options to choose...

Beautiful setting in the middle of nature with a view of the Glacier. Breakfast with a view was delicious and we enjoyed waking up to the mountain side. Was quiet at night and room was spacious with nice large shower area. Highlight of our trip!

Went there at height of tourist season so it was super expensive and super full capacity. I recommend booking early. Ended up there after few hours drive from Reykjavik along the Ring Road and the hotel provided a welcome rest. Felt sorry for all the people turned away without reservations. BOOK EARLY if you are going there in season. My...
