We stayed in this hotel as part of a 10-day "Across The Wilderness Tour" from Iceland Travel. The hotel was comfortable and clean. The meals were excellent and the staff friendly. We arrived as an evening rainshower was passing through and we were treated to a complete rainbow framing Hekla. The following day we headed up the Sprengisandur route to...

This house is in the middle of nowhere, just to relax yourself and enjoy the views. The rooms was good and the breakfast service very complete. The staff is good. There is no wife in the room, only at reception.

Now this is an interesting place to spend the night. It's a small hotel with maybe 20 rooms. The rooms are fine, neat n clean. wiFi however the is only available in the lobby n the second floor which is a nicely appointed common area. What is unique is the view of the Hekla volcano from the parking lot of...

We stopped by this hotel to have lunch, having read some favourable reviews about its restaurant (although they were dated to 2015). I guess some major changes must have happened since because nowadays (I don't know if it functions this way at all times) it only has one main course available (in our case, it was Lasagna with salad -...

Hello. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding - the evening menu is bigger and has got 4 main courses, 4 starters and 5 desserts. The lunch menu is usually just set with the dish of the day. I hope you will return to our nice place later on and stay for the dinner menu ;) All the best, Fríða, general manager

We stayed for 2 nights and thought it as a clean comfortable hotel. The restaurant was good. The issue we had was there was no orientation to the hotel when we arrived. We only found out about the pool and hot tubs when we were leaving as they are not visible from the hotel -my kids would have enjoyed them.

Very basic basic room with not much space. Room had some dirty spots, but overal it was clean. Good shower, with steady flow of hot water, that could be closed so not the whole bathroom was getting wet. The main big +++ was that the room could be made absolutely dark. Dinner was quite good actually, shame the second beer...

I booked the Hotel Leirubakki off of Travelocity (I stuck to Gnome-only bookings this trip) and while it was listed in Hella it was more like 30 miles Hella adjacent (LESSON ALERT: always map where your hotel is. Town borders are so large that while you may be “in” a town, you may be 30 miles from the Ring Road.)...

Hey! Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm sorry that you thought our hotel was closer to Hella - but if you look at Icelandic postal codes; 850, 860, 800 etc. - are postal codes for towns or cities, but 851, 861, 801 are postal codes for farms in the neighbourhood; out of the city. We're so glad...

Very nice place, great food and the staff was really friendly and helpful. We arrived on a sunny day and we enjoyed it in one of the three hot tubs they have there. We will defiantly stay there again some day.

The hotel is middle of nowhere and especially in winter months there are hardly any people. There was our group and three other people. We were only people to eat and the medium size restaurant was opened only for us. Food was suprisingly good and the one guy was acting avery staff member. We got also a hot tube ready...
