We went to Iceland in November. Not the best month to see the Northern Lights due to the weather but a spectacular vacation anyway. We stayed at the Hotel Ranga for 3 nights and were very lucky to get a whole hour of the lights one night. All other nights very cloudy. The hotel i

We spent four wonderful days at the hotel. We didn't see the northern lights as it was too cloudy, but we thoroughly enjoyed traveling around and the super jeep tour with Midguard. Staff throughout the hotel are terrific and food in the restaurant is excellent, especially the s

The whole place needs to be thoroughly upgraded so that is has the facilities to match the price. It would be great for the standard of the food to be as good when the manager and Swedish journalists are in as when they are.

How expensive are the meals in the hotel? Are there any cheaper places to eat around it (we will have a car).
Very expensive but worth it we didn’t look elsewhere

Question - not looking to book a specific fishing tour - does the hotel have Rods for use to take outside by the river? Also - if you stayed in a suite - was the view of the river or the parking lot. Thanks!
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!

I saw on one holiday site the hotel has an observatory for star gazing, is that correct and if so what type of telescopes is it equipped with and can guests use?
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.

Are there any buses from the airport to Hella or Hotel ranga?
A hire car is essential for this hotel, do make sure you make best use of it and see at your own pace the South coast and what this wonderful Island has to offer. Do hire a 4 X 4

Wondering whether to drive about or go on organised tripsychology. We want to do the usual stuff like the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon. Is it pretty idiot proof and does anything need booking beforehand?
Dead easy to drive yourself, practically one main road. Organised tours looked hideous! We booked car rental before we arrived in Iceland online with 4x4 rentals who pick you up from airport or hotel and take you to their nearby depot. At worst, sat nav on iPhone gets you about if you don't hire one.

"Royal Suite"
"outstanding hotel - must stay"
"Go for a suite, regular rooms are so so"
"One side facing the main road and the other facing the back, with balcony, where the outdoor hot tubs are located"
"Even nos downstairs near to the outside hot tub. Odd number on North side rooms see the lights from your room"
US$311 - US$1,542 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
