We stayed as a family for two nights during Feb half term. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Weather unfortunately was not good so did not see Northern Lights. Our bedroom was too small to accommodate the sofa bed and our bed was very uncomfortable. Breakfast was delicious and dinner was good but incredibly overpriced even by Icelandic standards. We...

We booked this hotel on a tour company's recommendation. They got this selection absolutely spot on. The staff were amazing and could not have been more helpful. The room was spotless, even beyond my wife's very exacting standards! The food was expensive, but you don't have to eat in every night. Breakfast was very good indeed. We had to stay... More

We booked our stay with Discover the World tour group, lovely hotel, very clean, staff extremely friendly, food excellent. Unfortunately the Northern lights didn't appear the two nights we stayed, but it didn't spoil our stay too much as we saw so many wonderful things while out and about

I only spent one night here, but it was lovely. The grounds, the room (with heated towel rack – so appreciated in the winter!) – and the common areas were all super comfy. I loved the pool room and the bar (with the bar seats!). Dinner was wonderful and had a great wine selection. Breakfast was included and plentiful. And... More

Food amazing and modern but yet traditional. We tried puffin and fermented shark but still had chicken and lamb dishes. Staff amazing and so friendly. 5* food and pretty restaurant. Telling us the northern lights were showing whilst we were in restaurant was a lovely touch too.

Great venue and brilliant services. Everything is about details here and the hotel's staff really got it. From the reception to the restaurant, everybody is there to make your staying perfect. Even the owner of the hotel comes to greet his guests during dinner and he doesn't mind to bring you anything you might need. The rooms are beautiful, cozy,... More

Ate here for New Year's Eve. Fabulous set menu, very reasonable for Icelandic prices! Great bar staff and restaurant staff. Even got to see the northern lights at 8.45pm on NYE. Staff vet kindly covered our dinners while we had a look at them.

Although rated as a four star hotel I rate the cuisine as five star, excellent quality, varied choice with local specialities especially the fish choices and out of the ordinary food. The complimentary hors d ' oeuvres was a nice touch
