We stayed here for 2 nights as a part of a tour. The rooms are basic but warm and clean as is the rest of the property. The staff were indifferent at best. The dinner was very mediocre and breakfast was poor. Before our stay the had been snow which had turned into sheet ice all around the entrance and...

I was first taken aback when we arrived and had to negotiate 2 feet of snow to get to the reception, but what an incredible place. Completely isolated, with basic rooms but very good breakfast and evening meal and the best place to see the Northern lights. I will never forget this hotel.

We stayed for two nights as part of a party of 13. Lots of snow around in February. Very windy. They said as bad as it usually gets, but it was quiet enough inside. The room was spacious. The shower was lovely. The breakfast was good. My wife enjoyed the dinner. There is a pleasant room to sit for a...

We stayed here for two nights during our 'Discover the World' Northern Lights and Volcanos tour. The hotel was OK, a bit basic but functional. The small rooms had tea and coffee and the en suite was fine. The food was good and everything seemed to be done by the two members of staff, who were very friendly. The best...

This is where we saw the magical Northern Light. The staff will alert you if the Light appears. We found the staff were very friendly, helpful through out. The food was excellent and the hotel was very clean. However, we found our room was very compact, not enough heating in sub zero temperature ( I had to ask for extra...

Let me start by saying that it is important not to be put off by the external appearance of the hotel - or the reception area. This really is a cracker of a hotel! First, depending on which direction you approach the hotel, it is important to leave plenty of time for the trip because this hotel really is rural...

Doesn't look much but rooms were nice, breakfast included and dinners were first rate quality. Like a lot of Iceland, expensive even compared to London ! Good "out there location" providing opportunities for lava field exposure and walking trails. If we hadn't gone that far to stay, unlikely to have travelled into the lava fields, down to landmannalauger ( 35...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Highland is a three star hotel situated at the edge of the Iceland’s most impressive and active volcanic area. From here it is a short distance to many of the most beautiful and popular tourist attractions in the highlands. The area is teeming with great sites for adventure and is the perfect base for visiting as many of them as time allows. It also has a great location to try out all the activities the region has to offer. The vastness and lack of human impact on the surrounding area makes it truly one of the last places in Europe where freedom, natural beauty and solitude are combined in a breathtakingly powerful experience. Hotel Highland offers 16 standard rooms and 4 suites, 2 Family suites for up to 6 people and 2 Luxury suites for up to 4 people. In addition Hotel Highland offers a gourmet restaurant, bar, sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi. The hotel is well accessible by paved road all year round and is only 150 km from Reykjavik. We recommend guests that are planning on staying with us during Winter season to have a 4WD. ... more   less
