We arrived around 5.00pm having leisurely driven from Reyjavik at 10.30am, doing the Golden Circle tour. Reception staff very welcoming and helpful. Signed up on the first night for the "Northern Lights" alert call and sure enough we got 2 calls and had a brilliant display! Didn't experience the hot tubs as it was too cold for us. The food in the restaurant was absolutely fantastic. Over the 2 nights we had smoked puffin, lamb, monkfish, sea perch, chicken and couple of desserts - nothing disappointed. Only slight issue was when I had a glass of house wine and towards then meal asked for another when it was nearly empty - the (slightly grumpy) young waiter came along and topped up my glass which was not even empty and when I said that my glass wasn't even filled as full as he had filled my first one, he just walked away. Not great customer service. this hotel is in a great location for exploring southern Iceland.
