We stayed in this hotel 2 nights out of 4. It was in a beautiful little town. Very out of the way around 15 minutes drive out of the town. Beautiful scenery around the hotel. The staff were very friendly. There is a sauna , swimming pool and a jacuzzi which are naturally heated which is always great! There is... More

A beautiful hotel nestled in quite lap of nature close to golden circle attractions. Rooms were spacious compared to other places in Iceland. Good hospitality value for money. Just loved our stay there.

Popular with school groups but it's spread out and well noise-insulated. Hotel has excellent swimming pools, slide and hot tubs (outdoor but plenty hot enough). Dinner and breakfast are very good - wide range of salad and cold meats, cheeses, etc. One or two hot choices and dessert was pink blancmange. Drinks, as always in Iceland, are very expensive -...

Reasonable hotel close to highway 1 and hiking trails to river and hot vents. Large rooms, good wifi. Has pool (closed for season) , hot tubs and sauna. Breakfast buffet was good. Nice restaurant, however, we ate in town. Some musty smell in the hallways.

We stayed at this hotel overnight and certainly suggest that it be given a miss. Hotel is decaying and needs a major re furbishment. Minimal amenities, rooms that really looked aged and the bathroom needs a major upgrade. Plus is the multilingual multinational staff who are very pleasant and easy to deal with.
