Recently stayed at this hotel for 3 days and I was blown away by how helpful the staff were, particularly Shaun who helped make sure all our tours and transfers were sorted. The rooms were nice, simple but what can you expect for the price? Amazing view of the mountain from room 6, and we were lucky enough to see...

Easy to get to from town, the bus stops right outside. The room was basic but clean (could have done with some extra blankets). Breakfast was great with plenty of choice. Nice little lounge/bar with games and free pool. Best part was the hot tub in the back garden. We sat there under the stars for ages. Not really much...

A quirky (in a good way) hotel set around 30 minutes from Reykjavik.The staff are all very friendly and really helpful - Sean and Nunu on the front desk are the perfect hosts. We asked for their advice on tours before we arrived and got loads of information so if you are unsure just ask and they'll be on hand....

Booked this on LastMinute, short weekend trip for me and the offspring to spend some quality time together. Contacted Shaun before our arrival as they stated on the booking that if we got in after midnight there was a key safe, glad we did as flight was a bit late and didn't get to the hotel until 1.45am! No problems...

A lovely friendly and warm place to stay, about a 30 minute bus journey out of Reykjavik. We preferred being slightly out of the main city, which was peaceful, so if Reykjavik is not something you plan to do all day every day, or if you have tours booked elsewhere, want to go hiking, or mainly self-driving around Iceland yourself,...

Great spot to see the Northern Lights with a little drive into the wilderness. Room is spacious with great views of the surrounding area. Petrol station nearby for any last minute purchases. Waffles for breakfast. Highly recommend!

The staff was very helpful. We got help booking all the tours and that made the whole trip smooth. The room was nice and clean! Breakfast was good and the hotel has a beautiful view outside. Me and my friends had a great time in Iceland!

But glad we were out of...
