Will come again!
A nice hotel by the lake in a beautiful place. There is a room with a telescope for you to see the stars or just to hang out. Breakfast is pretty good. The room is good as well.

Beautiful view
Awesome view. Hotel has a sitting room and deck (if you're brave enough for the weather to sit outside) with amazing view of water and mountains. We got great sunset photos here (at 11:15 pm!) The bathroom was tiny- you literally cannot be overweight to fit in the shower. The desk was very small- could barely fit laptop. Nice breakfast: toast, pecan pastry, chocolate filled pastry, hard boiled eggs, salami, ham, cheese, bacon, cereal, and yogurt. A few tidbits about Iceland hotels in general: Towels are placed on your bed, not in the bathroom so try to remember to take it in with you! They have tiny basin sinks mounted to wall with no countertop for toiletry bag. They do not use top sheets; they have a down like blanket in duvet cover which gets very warm so I recommend turning the radiator down for sleeping. Curtains generally can't block all the light so if you need total darkness to sleep bring an eye mask. No decaf coffee. No washcloths. XL twin beds but not long enough blankets.

Beautiful Setting with Attentive Staff
Nice stay with the owner being very attentive to his guests and helping us with some of our activity plans. The buffet meal was delicious in the evening and breakfast was good as well. We saw the Aurora Borealis from our balcony that evening. It was a very enjoyable stay.

für eine Nacht OK
Eine Nacht stop-over auf dem Weg nach Südisland. Das Hotel hat Jugendherbergscharacter, die Zimmer sind zweckmäßig. Die Betten für meinen Geschmack viel zu weich. Das Frühstück kostenlos und „basic“. Am Abend der Anreise (self check-in) keine Bewirtung oder Getränke im Hotel. Dafür ein Imbiss und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten an der nächsten Tankstelle 2 km entfernt.
