We came for a 2 night stay for my boyfriends 40th birthday. The hotel entrance is fully refurbished and modern. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel room was huge and had great views of the golf course. Only 45 mins from Reykjavik by car. Heated pool and sauna.

Iceland Travel had us stay at this hotel as part of our itinerary. This hotel is old, dated and has a very funny smell to it. The breakfast which is included was absolutely terrible. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and if you are booking with iceland travel make sure they do not put this hotel in your...

The only way to describe this hotel is average. Only because there is nothing special but everything's clean and fine. I am here on a school trip and it's not really the type of hotel I would usually stay in. However I'm a vegan and they made me food specially which I'm very grateful for. The staff are friendly and...

I love travelling. And I love Iceland. I will definitely come back. I usually only write reviews when I have had an extraordinary experience. But this time I was so disappointed I need to let you know. Hotel Örk is without a doubt the hotel in the world where I have paid the most money for the lowest standard. I'm...

Short of Iceland Ring Road trip, I can't think of a better base offering access to so many destinations in Iceland. One day we went to Geysir, Gullfoss, and Thinglevir taking back roads offering unbelievable scenery. Another day we went down Route 1 with stops at waterfalls, black sand beach, glaciers - all the way to Iceberg (Glacier) Lagoon, including...

Stayed for two nights at this hotel. They are currently refurbishing it - but that didn't inconvenience us at all. The hotel caters to school groups - but again that wasn't a problem as they put them up in a different floor. The rooms are basic but clean and the hotel is a good location for driving yourself. Had an...

Hotel Ork is in a good location near to a main road into Reykjavik. Moreover, there is a small shopping complex near to the hotel containing a supermarket and a bank (there is also an earthquake simulator of the earthquake that hit the area in 2008). The hotel itself is immaculately clean and has really friendly and attentive staff. There...

We stayed at the Ork the first night we got to Iceland. It was an easy drive from the airport (and we went to the Blue Lagoon for a couple of hours on the way). Comfortable rooms with helpful staff and probably our best evening meal (of the 4 we had). We didn't use the pool and the Northern Lights...

We stayed at Hotel Ork for 3 nights (after spending 1 in Reykjavik) in order to be closer to the site of our tours. The hotel is clean and comfortable though the rooms are a bit on the small side.
