We had the most amazing holiday staying at the Hotel Laxnes.
We booked one of the suites. This was a very large room with sitting area and a balcony that looked out towards the mountains. We had a four year old with us and knew we wouldn't be able to do any of the late night Northern Lights trips, so we hoped we could put him to bed and keep watch. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast, that is included in the price, is basic…but the porridge is delicious!
Shaun, the manager, and all the staff at the hotel are lovely, knowledgeable and helpful. We stayed for a week and hired a car, which enabled us to visit the sights at our leisure. And what sights there were! We say geysers, stunning waterfalls, boiling rivers and mud, huge volcanic craters, hump backed whales breaching and spy hopping... it seemed as though it was a never ending list of must see experiences. After six nights of keeping watch on the balcony and giving up hope seeing the Northern Lights we got a grand finale of them lighting up two nights running.
Thank you Hotel Laxnes, you contributed to such a great holiday and memories.
