We stayed at the Hotel Cabin on our first and last night of a weeks tour of Iceland.
On arrival we were met with friendly reception staff and directed to our deluxe double room.
The double room is two single beds pushed together, but from my experience of Iceland this is the norm. After staying in 5 different hotels, we did not see a double bed, they were all single pushed together.
The deluxe room was very clean and the bathroom had a bath, which as we discovered later on our tour of the country was a rarity. The room was compact to say the least, but it did the job! TV, Fridge and comfy bed, although we only had one pillow, which needed more filling.
We didn't eat at the hotel, apart from breakfast, which consisted of the normal stuff, tea, coffee and juice, cereal, toast, jams, cold meats and eggs and fruit.
There's a N1 service station across the road, which does excellent hot dogs and sandwichs and a 10 11 shop just up the road in which you can get supplies.
On our last night in Iceland we stayed at this hotel again and were upgraded to an executive room, the room was exactly the same as the deluxe room, but we had more window, were a floor higher up and therefore had a better view. You could lie on the bed and see out across the sea. The view was good.
All in all the hotel is clean, the staff very polite. Nothing to rave about, but nothing to complain about. I would recommend you try to retune the tv if you can only find Icelandic channels, I did and found BBC and ITV. I can also recommend the Argentina steak house in Reykjavik, it does the best steaks, they're very pricey but they are fantastic.
