We loved this hotel. Our room was spacious and nicely furnished and we had a view of the lake. It is in a rural location but close to the town. The common areas of the hotel are quaint. The buffet breakfast was varied and very good. The only minus is the fact that you have to pay extra to use...

We stopped over here for 1 night travelling across the country, parking was plentiful but the sat nav took us a little in the wrong direction but the hotel is quite distinctive so easy to find. The hotel is nice, modern and large. The rooms are large, comfortable and well appointed. When we stayed I think we were the only...

Hotel overlooks the lake adjacent to a working farm. The staff are friendly and efficient, the room was clean and comfortable. We ate at the restaurant which was excellent - great choice on menu and good service.

We stayed in the newer section of the hotel on the 4th floor. The room was modern and comfortable. Our room did not look towards the lake but over the car park but none the less it was very quiet. Best curtains so far in Iceland to block out the light. Many of these newer hotel rooms can seem a...

I was a bit skeptical when I approached the hotel but when I walked in, I was delighted to see it was modern and quaint. The hotel is undergoing some renovations but I think it should be completed soon. I wouldn't let that deter you. I had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and both meals were fantastic. The bed...

Stunning location, updated, clean and comfortable stay. Friendly service and well kept spacious rooms. Highly recommend to anyone staying in the area, would be the top choice to stay on another visit. One of the best hotels during our entire 8 day trip in Iceland.

We were there for one night but we could have spent an entire week! Big room, clean, comfy bed, nice bathroom and everything modern and new. Also the views from our room were awesome! Well located. The only "bad" thing could be the spa that is not very big, but is really cheap!!

This is a lovely hotel situated right on the lakeside. Built in 1903 it is very Icelandic, cosy, comfortable & pretty. We had a large room at the front of the hotel (not the lakeside) but the view of the small town from there was good too. Being a short distance away from the road we had a very quiet...

Even held my bags to my room. Had all meals there for these days after the first experience. My mouth still waters reflecting on the great food,...
