This hotel is part of the well known Edda Hotel chain who everyone has been in Iceland knows as the one that use the schools closed in summer period as accomodations for tourist.
Laugarvatn is 15 minutes car ride from the famous attractions of Geysir and Gulfoss. Is a very small town and the hotel is located in the middle of very nice meadows in a peaceful area.
There is a main building with reception and restaurant and two others with the rooms.
Our room was a double adapted as a triple with a mattress on the ground, not the best but an option that you can accept with a child.
Rooms and common spaces are extremely clean, staff smiling and kind. We had just a small argument with a room maid because we found that she had put the sheets for the third "bed" on the hallway ground. We exposed our disappointment and she immediately excused. When we came back to the room after dinner we have found a nice slip of paper with other excuses. It was a small accident well solved.
We had also dinner there. There was a good choice of meals and I have to say that the quality was quite good. Some lacks in the fish (too much bechamel) and in lasagna (too dry) but the soup and the lamb were really excellent.
A very good surprise at breakfast: a huge choice of biscuits, marmalades, breads, yoghurt and cold dishes that you may als not expect in a simple hotel like that.
Of course the 4 points evaluation must be compared with the limited hotel offer in Iceland, but is an accomodation that I can absolutely suggest.
