My stay at Hotel Ranga (2 nights) was perfect. We had no problems at all, the check in process was easy and swift and although we had one of the cheaper rooms it was spacious, very cosy and the bed was huge! We also had a jacuzzi in the bathroom and one right outside our room. There are also themed rooms available such as the Africa, Australia and Arctic suites which all looked fantastic. Breakfast was excellent, a buffet of fresh bread and spreads, meats, cheese, fruits, fish, a waffle iron with maple syrup, cereals and of course sausage, hash browns, bacon, egg and beans and much more, i had 5 plates of food both mornings! Dinner in the evening is excellent, the soups were delicious and creamy, the chicken and fish were ever so tender and full of flavour and last but not least the skyr cake was fantastic. The hotel offers a wake up call service, if you tick your room number on the sheet at reception they will call you if the northern lights appear, we received 3 of these calls in one night and were very lucky to see the aurora, it was a surreal experience and one that we will never forget. I highly recommend a stay here and you must not leave without having your photo taken with the enormous polar bear in the reception!
