This is where we saw the magical Northern Light. The staff will alert you if the Light appears.
We found the staff were very friendly, helpful through out. The food was excellent and the hotel was very clean.
However, we found our room was very compact, not enough heating in sub zero temperature ( I had to ask for extra blanket) and there was a strong musty smell in the bathroom even though it was clean. The extractor fan didn’t work so the smell lingers. We were told the hotel normally shuts for winter and only open specially for our big group, may be this was why. TV reception was poor and limited channels.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Highland is a three star hotel situated at the edge of the Iceland’s most impressive and active volcanic area. From here it is a short distance to many of the most beautiful and popular tourist attractions in the highlands. The area is teeming with great sites for adventure and is the perfect base for visiting as many of them as time allows. It also has a great location to try out all the activities the region has to offer. The vastness and lack of human impact on the surrounding area makes it truly one of the last places in Europe where freedom, natural beauty and solitude are combined in a breathtakingly powerful experience. Hotel Highland offers 16 standard rooms and 4 suites, 2 Family suites for up to 6 people and 2 Luxury suites for up to 4 people. In addition Hotel Highland offers a gourmet restaurant, bar, sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi. The hotel is well accessible by paved road all year round and is only 150 km from Reykjavik. We recommend guests that are planning on staying with us during Winter season to have a 4WD. ... more less
