“Peaceful and tranquil escape”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

The photographs of the hotel don't look impressive but driving west you pass a couple of huge headlands and then this vast space opens up, a series of farms strung out under the mountainside. Anything human in this landscape is insignificant. I'm not sure what people want from a hotel but Country Hotel Anna suited me to the ground. The bedroom was roomy and comfortable but the lounge downstairs has a terrific view of the mountains through a huge picture window, in early May the sun sets over these mountains giving some spectacular evening light.
The food is really good, lots of fish and the horse steak was excellent - give it a try. The staff were excellent, friendly and very attentive. I stayed four excellent daysand it was a thoroughly relaxing holiday, I went for the walking and wasn't disappointed, perhaps later in the year when the snow line is a little higher if you want to get high up.
When I go back to Iceland I will be staying here again

This is where we had our first dinner, had our first nights good sleep and first experience with Icelandic breakfast. The Inn was very easy to locate (the first plus), within 30 minutes of the ferry, and had a restaurant. The dinning room was very popular and the fish dinner was very tasty. The beds were comfortable, and I really liked the antique decor. My mom and I were the only two people in the restaurant super early the next morning and we had a great time trying everything! The staff at check in and in the restaurant were friendly and helpful. The gentleman on duty in the morning translated an email I received from the ferry service late the night before. His help was key to our morning running smoothly. I would recommend this very clean, cozy country hotel to anyone looking for a prime location to stay in the south.

Maybe old fashioned but rooms clean and service excellent. Good food in the restaurant. Hot tub in an outbuilding which we had to ourselves when we visited Sept 2013. Good walking nearby, awesome waterfalls.

The Country Hotel Anna is decorated in an antique country style, which is not our taste. The rooms and bathrooms are older. It reminded us of what we think our great grandmothers house was probably like. That said, some people would love it. It was clean and the staff was nice enough. The hot tub is in a little building and doesn't run, they put hot water in it for us, not a very good experience. The restaurant was excellent. The price of the hotel was lower than other hotels we stayed at, so taking that into account it is probably a good value.

Really nice, pretty little hotel. Our rooms were lovely, and we enjoyed a quiet cocktail in the comfortable public sitting room before dinner. Dinner was outstanding - expensive, but honestly our best meal in Iceland. The staff was very nice and very accommodating -- but seemed oddly sort of pressured and stressed out. This would not have been noticeable in, oh say, New York, but was in stark contrast to everywhere else we went in Iceland. It took away from the serenity of the place a bit. The aurora dspay was simply phenomenal the night we were there - I suppose they weren't responsible, but we'll give them credit anyway.

Beautiful Hotel, right under THAT volcano. We stayed two nights on our way back but wish we had stayed longer. Food was great. Rooms & service were very good & loved the small exhibit about the writer & traveller who used to live there.
The only thing which could have been better was the hot tub
