Very nice place. Wooden lodge style hotel. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Bathroom is huge and room looked out onto a small river. Restaurant is top-notch - recommend the Iceland Surf and Turf - and they even had my favortie brand of Scotch in the bar upstairs. Will go back.

Stayed: July 2007

We enjoyed our stay at the Ranga. Ok, the rooms are pretty small, but that seems to be normal in Iceland. But the restaurant and the location around the hotel make up for the cosy rooms. Furthermore, the hotel is conveniantly located for most of the major sight in the south of Iceland, including the Westmaenner Islands. Do take a day to go out there!

We stayed at the Hotel Ranga in November for 2 nights and it's a perfect time of year to visit.

Our room was warm and cosy with a great bathroom and although it overlooked the car park turned out not to matter at all beacuse that was the side of the hotel the northern lights were visible from so we could view them in the comfort of our own room.

The hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas and in the evening served a buffet which was delicious.

The staff were really helpful and friendly. They called our car hire company for us when we had a bit of trouble with our car, they took time out in the busy restaurant to explain all the food, the chef came and spoke to us and in the evening they checked the satelitte to show us the best place and time to see the northern light. They even turned off the car park lights to make sure we got the best possible view.

The hot tubs were great fun in the evening with a glass of wine in the freezing temperatures.

If your looking for fresh air, peace and quiet, great food then we'd really reccomed the Hotel Ranga.

This hotel is not all that great actually. They tried to put us in a cheaper, smaller room on check-in despite our written confirmation of the booking in hand and the fact that we had already paid for the room in full prior to arrival via our travel agent (Note: this seems to be a common occurrence in Iceland as it happened at every single hotel we stayed at whilst there) and only after we refused to accept the downgraded room the "unavailable" room suddenly became available. The room itself is mediocre. The breakfast was lovely. The staff was surly. The hot tubs were outside in the middle of no-where exposed to all manner of elements e.g. rain, wind etc. A bit over-rated. Bathroom was nice with a lovely big corner bath.

Stayed here for one night in early August, on arrival we found we had been upgraded(free) to one of their executive suite which was a lovely unexpected surprise. The room was lovely, although the bed rather hard, with plasma tv, dvd, sound system etc a lovely large bathroom with corner bath.
Although it had outdoor hot tubs we didn't use them and as another reviewer stated the small patio area needed chairs to sit out on.
The breakfast buffet was one of the best we had in Iceland. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Stayed: August 2006
