Bad customer service
The heater was not turned on upon our arrival at night and in winter. There was no one to welcome us, and the guy at the reception the next day told us he doesn’t even want to work there. The breakfast was ok, basic. I forgot a piece of clothing in the room, and I called the hotel after two hours to ask them to keep it so I could pick it up and I was told that they could not find it. I called several times after that and the call was never picked up again. I have sent several emails requesting to have it back and no one has replied to my emails

Clean, great location and view, noisy guests
This place is situated in a beautiful area. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The owner is very hospitable. Free coffee and tea at all times. The biggest downfall was the noise. There were horribly noisy guests arriving late hours and some were rowdy that you can hear them laughing throughout the night. Every time one entered or left the rooms the doors slammed. The walls are also thin so you can hear chitter chatter. Unfortunately, the guests were part of a big group staying there and were rowdy. Seems like a free for all since there is technically no staff in the building or a phone in our room to communicate with them. The staff is located in reception and dinning building. We ended up banging on the wall to make them stop. Needless to say we didn’t sleep well. Not even a tv in the room to put on to try to drown the noise. It’s not the owners fault just inconsiderate people. Maybe if they had signs up to be quiet after a certain time.

A very nice place to stay
We enjoyed our one-night stay here. The room was very comfortable, and the location was beautiful. The breakfast was only cold foods, but had a good variety. The restaurant dinner had a limited menu, but the food was very well prepared and presented. A bonus is that we were able to view the aurora borealis at 8 pm. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it.

Good 6,0
We arrived 9:15 pm (15 minutes after the restaurant closed), and with no other eating options anywhere close, we asked for something small and quick, a sandwich maybe. We were flatly refused. The guy next to me asked for an extra pillow and was told: no extra pillows! The obvious conclusion is that the management doesn't go out of its way to meet clients needs. TV had sign "out of order". The price was by far the highest we paid in Iceland (total of 7 hotels, all highly rated)

Overall great stay!
Overall great stay at this cute little guesthouse! It is a bit of a drive from Glacier Lagoon, and still further to go before you get into the town. But served us well for the night stay we needed before we began our drive back. We are dinner here and the food was delicious! Staff were wonderful and check in was super easy!
