Reception guys very helpful and friendly.
Room reasonable size and very warm (opening window as well to help cool it down).
Bed very comfortable and extra pillows produced immediately on request.
Shower/wet room OK but under performing shower!
Biggest problem was the stamp sized towels - which after a quick wipe over had absorbency their total capacity leaving you still wet and wondering what to do.
Warning any large surface area people who visit might wish to take their own towels!
In room safe never worked and despite continued requests...never did work or get repaired. My feeling is it never will.
Buffet breakfast that was adequate but same every day. Would love to have seen more fresh fruit or even defrosted fruit for the cereals or on it's own.
Used the bar only once and the barman seemed far more interested in jiving his hips in time to the music (as he poured the drink) than actually serving us.
Bar area seemed to be the only place where WiFi worked which is seriously bad in Iceland as every coach and every shop/cafe/restaurant we visited had it.
All in all..I think it's a case of what you see is what you get but it's still a very good location and I am sure that we could have done much worse. We would recommend it
Coaches pick up right outside the front door of the hotel albeit a bit of a scrum to get on board and even to find out if it is 'your' coach.
As has been mentioned on here before there is a massive building site at the sided and back of the hotel which I think will continue for months if not years. They start at 0800 at the latest and go on til 1800ish. They worked Saturday morning which was a bit of a blow as we hadn't got back to the hotel til 0230 from seeing the Northern Lights. I am not sure there would be any quiet room here as traffic is around at the front. Try it and see.
