We just stayed 2 nights in Villa Creativity and the villa is amamzing. It had a hot tub kept constant at 38 degrees. view of the fjords were just breath taking. Breakfast selection is huge and very filling. We havent seen the smaller rooms, but i reckon if you can afford it, go with one of the villas available, you wont regret it!
The hotel is about 35km from Borganes and about 24km from Arkanes. We went to both towns and we prefered Arkanes, they have supplies there as well from Bonus supermarket and its a small quaint town, we had a great time just walking around the neighbourhood, its not to be missed.
Dinner was a splendid affair, like what most people mentioned, serving is slightly on the small side, but it still filled you up, quality is very good and it is expensive.
They have the northern lights wake up call but its a pity that we didnt get to see the norhtern lights while we were there. The hot water in the shower does smell strongly of sulphur but you will get used to it after a while. THe floors of the villas were all heated so it felt extremely comfortable.
overall, go for the villas, you wont regret it. THeres a small church at the end of the road of the hotel, go there and have a view of the fjords, its stunning there. On the way back to Rejkavik, instead of turning right towards Arkanes/Borganes, we turned left instead back to Rejkavik, the journey is about 20km longer, but we got to see the other side of the fjords, the view is alot more spectacular compared to the other side.
