The restaurant opened at 12 and the pulled pork sandwich was delicious. There was a great view from our table and the service was good. A short drive south and you can walk up the Grabrok Volcano, which is essentially a 10 minute stairway to the top.
The rooms are on two floors. We had room 22. It was very small with a tiny bathroom and an undersized wash basin, but it was clean and attractively decorated. Another good shower, as mostly in Iceland. Tea / coffee-making equipment and free wifi. Situated at the base of lava cliffs in a wild and beautiful landscape. Interesting outbuildings, including a traditional house attached to a cow / pig stall. A small shop with pretty local pottery. Good breakfast buffet.
Stayed here for 1 night but wish we had stayed for longer! First impressions of the hotel was good - we walked into the restaurant area to check in and had already liked the look of the place. The check in staff was friendly and quickly checked us in and briefly talked us through the onsite facilities (hot tub, fireplace) before showing us to our room.
The room was a reasonable size - had a comfortable double bed, a coffee table + two chairs, a dressing table with tea/coffee making facilities and bathroom. Inside the room there were also two bathrobes - this was much needed when walking over to the hot tub in the cold!! They have two hot tubs - both are constantly filled by the hot water from the nearby hot spring. We went in the hot tub around 9.30pm, hoping it was dark enough to do some star gazing and spot some northern lights. And sure enough we did!! It was such an amazing experience to lay in a hot tub while tilting your head back to look at the stars, full moon AND northern lights!
They have a large outdoor fireplace too which was nice. Shame the fire was put out by the time we left the hot tub, as we wanted to warm/dry ourselves by the fire - but I do understand that it was late and they couldn't leave the fireplace unattended.
The hotel also has a working farm, so you'll see lots of animals wandering about. During our time there, we managed to see some geese, baby cows, a golden retriever and two little kittens!
To our delight, when we got out of the car at this hotel, a baby cow came running across the parking area to see who we were (then ran back to join the baby pigs). Our room was small but comfortable. The highlight was the hot tubs which face the mountainside, we enjoyed drinks there in the drizzle while watching the animals roam around the farm. We had dinner in the hotel, very tasty but quite expensive. This was probably our favourite spot we stayed in Iceland.
