We had a great three nights here and could have stayed longer. The menu was varied for breakfast and dinner. We had a back room over looking the river, so saw the sunsets. We did do the night drive out to see the Northern lights,...More
As the title suggest, the location of this hotel is very strategic. Located in the south central part of Iceland, it is a good convenient place to base for a few days to cover most of the main sightseeing areas. We stay here 4 nights....More
This property is located about an hour and a half East of Reykjavik on the ring road. Arriving after dusk, the Hotel is a set of Rustic Buildings set off from the road. Entering the Hotel you are greeted by a large stuffed Polar Bear-...More
If you are in Iceland you MUST schedule at least one night here. Not sure where to begin with this review - however I was Wowed at every possible moment.
I have been travelling with a co-worker on this fun girls weekend trip. It was...More
The hotel is beautiful and our room had a very quirky (but awesome) decoration. Great service (the general manager was super attentive and came talk to us every evening), great food at the restaurant (I´m still dreaming of that wild mushroom soup, honest to Thor!)...More

Suites have balcony river view and are lovely. It is difficult to fish in Iceland, if you email the hotel they can send you the name of the outfitter they recommend for fishing. While it looks like it would be easy to just walk to the river and start fishing, they do not have rods for rent and there are many regulations. Enjoy your trip to Iceland!

The hotel does have an observatory with two working telescopes (not sure the type) that are pretty large - they looked a little larger than the type of telescopes that the astronomers use for the star parties in Marfa, TX when they come down from the McDonald Observatory. The third telescope was to be repaired. On clear nights, the hotel hosts an astronomer who operated the telescopes and provided information about the night sky over Iceland. Maybe 10 guests joined the group - so it was like having a very small, personal star party with a host who was a great story teller as well as an astronomer. You'd have to check with the hotel to see if the telescopes were ever available for guest use - but this was one of the most magical parts of our trip to Iceland.
