We booked this hotel for the last night of our trip as the cost was significantly more than any other place we stayed while in Iceland and we wanted to treat ourselves on our last night of vacation. Even for an expensive country, this hotel was another cost level above everything else. The staff was underwhelming, dinner was average and expensive, and the room was a bit oddly laid out, with the bed up in a loft and the room split essentially on three levels with the bathroom, small sitting room, and then bed. The entire place is a eclectic, with a combination old and new styles. The weather was too windy and chilly for the outdoor hot tub; that would likely be a perk on a nicer day. Overall, this place was clean and comfortable enough but everything fell a bit flat, particularly when the cost was factored in. Maybe worth trying one of the villas. However, given the overall experience, not just the cost, we think there are better places to stay.
