Room is roomy but really out of date. Bathroom needs update, not very easy to take shower with shower curtain touching and water got everywhere. Breakfast is wonderful.

Nice location
The hotel is much larger than I thought, bus tours stayed there as well. It’s not far from Jökulsárlón lagoon. Our room was clean and warm, which was important because we stayed on a rainy night. The down side, Wi-Fi wasn’t that stable and the walls were thin that we could hear next door. Dinner a la carte menu available, prices were ok. Breakfast buffet included with stay and was very good.

Great South Iceland location.
This is a good place consider for those exploring the southern part of Iceland. Very close to the crashed airplane and the gray “black” sand beaches of Vik. My only complaints are that (1) the showers are separate and (2) breakfast did not include eggs of any kind.

Close to the glacier harbor tours.
Great location within distance to the National Park and the glacier lagoon. Stay here if you have an early trip planned to get close to the glacier. Only 15 minutes away. Great food with an enormous dining room. We were also able to do laundry (actually they did it for a nominal fee). Really nice people (actually haven’t met any that weren’t nice). Clean room and warm and homey like.

Family run hotel with friendly staff and food very good, far better than dated deco.Never judge a book by its cover! Most spacious room in Iceland. Perfect for South Coast and close to special points of interest.

Very average quality and did not worth the price. Breakfast actually was lack of choices and inadequate amount of food.

Sehr ruhig.
Zimmer neu renoviert. Frühstück sehr gut. Restaurant Essen lecker aber leider viel zu kleine Portionen für die Preise. Öffentliche Räume im sehr einfachen typischen isländischen Stil.
