Hotel Ranga is a very cosy hotel, with lovely facilities and an excellent restaurant. We had the standard room and it was great - quite enough room and a lovely big bathroom with a jacuzzi bath.
The restaurant is expensive, but not prohibitively. Wine is expensive wherever you go, so if you're a T-total then your meal will be significantly less. The puffin is delicious, definitely try it if you're not a veggie!
The location is perfect for access to hiking, and all the excursions. And since it's in the middle of nowhere, you won't hear a thing at night so you'll sleep VERY well.
The only thing that could have improved our stay would have been to see the Northern Lights! But the hotel have the courtesy to wake you up if they're showing, which is great.
