Very modern hotel with great staff and great breakfast. Our room wasn’t ready when we arrived so they offered us a free drink. Could use better blackout curtains and needed lotion in the bathroom. Also needed more counter space in the bathroom. My view was of a tractor that seemed to just be sitting there for a planned renovation, but otherwise would have been great.

We stayed here for a night in June 2019, like the modern minimalist design of the hotel. Spacious parking, almost full but not too crowded. Relaxing atmosphere even though there's a tour group. The room has everything you need for a night, including a electronic kettle where you can make coffee and tea. The room is comfortable, clean and quiet, sound proof is good. The breakfast was good and the service was good too. Only complaint is that there are too many insects (midges), we were surrounded by thousands of insects till can't get into the car.

We were there for three nights as part of a tour of Iceland to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. When we left the receptionist asked how our stay was, as they often do. In all those 50 years of marriage I don't think I've ever, ever heard my husband say somewhere was Excellent. This was a first!

The receptionist booked our whale watching trip and we went with his recommendation of the Opal from Husavik which is a silent trip on a sailing schooner. It was perfect. (A hunchback whale right alongside the ship.)

The rooms aren't the biggest we've had but there's a bench seat under the window which was a good spot to watch the swans on the field opposite, the wifi good, the shower hot and generous and the beds comfortable.

There's a bar area with lovely views and some very good 'coffee table' books of the area.

Breakfast is a bit ordinary but we found plenty of choice for three days. They will provide lunch boxes for you to make your own lunch from the breakfast bar at, I think, 300k per sandwich, which was a good idea.

Although it looks a bit austere from the outside, the inside is warm and friendly and we really enjoyed our stay.

Room tip: We had a lake view room. Some standard rooms face a bank with the car park on top. If you can, opt for the lake view.

Stopped here for lunch whilst visiting the attractions of Lake Mytvan , Cauliflower soup , Arctic char , potatoes, salad and a cold glass of beer , what's not to like. This area is popular with tourists, the flies can be a nuisance but were not really a problem.

Pros - 1. Staff were mostly upbeat and friendly.
2. Room was clean.
3. Dinner was of good value, priced reasonably (compared to orher f&b in the area) in terms of taste and portion.
4. Wifi was decent.

Cons - 1. Location isn't great. Hotel is located on secluded side of Lake Myvatn, away from the main town area where other hotels are and far from the nature bath and other sights.
2. The sheets were really scratchy and seemed of low quality. The bed was small.
3. The room appeared grim and cold starting from the color of the door and was cramp with little walking space in front of and between the beds.
4. The bathroom was honestly awful. It was smallband the door kept closing when using the sink due to the towel rack behind. Silly idea to place the rack there.
Water also kept spilling out of the shower area and the soap dispenser was very had to use. You had to push with a lot of effort for a little bit of gel to drip out and the loud sound could be heard from the bed sharing the same wall. The tap was also stiff and hard to move and because the sink was small, water kept splashing out.
5. Room and bathroom floor were cold.
6. Use of old school keys.
7. Power sockets at the bed area were poorly placed. I decided to use my power bank instead.
8. Either the waffle maker at breakfast was crappy or the batter was lousy, the waffles turned out half baked.
The exterior and common areas of the hotel looked better than the room itself which was a shame.
I would say overall the value of this hotel is on the lower end of the spectrum. Don't pay more than $150 for this.
