    Good

    Comfortable family room and very pleasant and helpful staff. Well located for road travel into Reykjavik and also good road access to open countryside and tourist destinations. Close to local fast food outlets, restaurant and shops.

    Guest rating

    The staff were friendly and the hotel was situated well to permit trips to the capital and the country.

    I had requested that the hotel shuttle pick us up at the airport however it did not arrive and so we rented a car at the airport rather than through Procar. The breakfast was adequate but could be better by including a toaster and more fruit. The toilet smelled bad - I suspect the venting is not working properly.

    Nothing

    This hotel is in serious need of an update, from the beds, linens, towels to the breakfast buffet. It has the potential to be so much more than what it is. This hotel was the only disappointing aspect of our second trip to Iceland and we will not return.

    Very good

    Clean and comfortable rooms and a reasonable price for the Reykjavik area.

    One of us has difficulty walking. While the hotel provided handicap- accessible rooms, they used short steep ramps over the door thresholds of the room and the breakfast area to facilitate the use of wheelchairs, and the ramps were made of smooth metal that was extremely slippery when wet. This made it very hazardous for an ambulatory person who has difficulty walking. We almost skipped going to breakfast because of this problem. We would not recommend this hotel for someone with walking difficulty, but for anyone else it is a good value for the money, which is rare in Iceland.

    Superb

    Helpful staff at reception Helpful staff at the kitchen, gave us a kettle to use in our room

    Double bed was actually two single beds pushed against each other. One of the suite rooms that was supposed to have a balcony did not have it, though charges were the same.

    Fabulous

    Good location, view of mountains from room. Good sized room. Reasonable price. Good breakfast choice.

    Could benefit from tea/coffee making facilites and phone in room. Also needs a fan in the bathroom.

    Exceptional

    I chose the hotel as we wanted to spend a few nights out of town for the possibility of seeing the northern lights and we were lucky enough to see them, a spectacular display as we walked to the nearly village (Alafoss) one evening. We enjoyed the village, the bakery and pool which are all in walking distance. The room was spacious and comfortable, the staff friendly and the bar cosy. Very nice.

    Exceptional

    Really helpfull and nice receptionist. Huge room with view to the mountain. Clean. Good bed. Free Wi-Fi in the room. Nice sorroundings at the hotel. Tasteful breakfast! When going to Thingvellir for the day, this is a good place to stay when heading north the next day, because then you avoid the traffic around Reykjavik.

    Superb

    The staff were excellent and friendly, the rooms clean and warm. Breakfast was excellent and because we had to be at locations early in the morning they opened the dining slightly early. The reception staff check bookings for trips and there knowledge is invaluable.

    Location is a bhit out of the city, albeit 15 minutes to city centre by car, it is 45 minutes on the bus. A lot of the coach companies do not pick up from this hotel and this caused some very long days.
