Hotel Laxnes is situated about 8 miles north of Reyjkavik via a dual carriageway so it is ideally placed if you want a quiet area but within very easy reach of the city. We chose it because we guessed we would have a better chance of seeing the Northern Lights away from the glare of the city lights and this proved to be the case. Staff at the hotel were good enough to knock on bedroom doors to let guests know if the Lights appeared, and as we had the bonus of a rental car we were able to jump in it and drive just a few miles onto the highlands away from all forms of light where we had a splendid view of them.
The rooms at the hotel were all of a very decent size, warm, clean and comfortable and the staff appeared more than pleased to help with any information or requests in any way that they could.
There is ample free parking at the hotel for those with transport and the hotel is easy to locate just off the main dual carriageway.
Housekeeping could have been a little better whilst we were there as the rooms did not appear to be cleaned on a daily basis, and the breakfast was a little underwhelming ( apart from the excellent porridge) However, despite these small grumbles the hotel nevertheless provides excellent value for money in a country where hotel rooms are not the cheapest. We would certainly stay here again if we return to Iceland. Recommended
