We stayed at this hotel for one night and that was fine! We booked the economy room and asked for an upgrade this was possible but for €95 for one night above the economy rate of €270!! That is a bit to much

Room was ok! Clean ,nothing special the dinner was good but also quit expensive

It’s a beautiful location but really expensive

Great hotel, well situated close to the glacier lagoons, with well appointed rooms and very helpful and friendly staff.
The restaurant is excellent as well; do try the fish soup, it is to die for.
Housekeeping dropped the ball, however, and did not clean our room properly during our 2 nights stay, which I found to be unacceptable at this level of hospitality.

Room tip: Watch your head in the room! The coffee is placed under a shelf and one hits ones head pretty hard if one doesn’t watch out!

I loved this hotel - the staff were fantastic, we had an incredible room, the food in the restaurant was amazing. I just never expected such an outstanding place in the middle of the Icelandic coast. This was just an amazing relaxing oasis. I cannot recommend staying here highly enough.

What a lovely hotel. We had a Suite that was absolutely lovely. It was a large room, great shower, a tub you could lay down in, hot water maker, refrigerator, great bed. The photos will tell. The room was very quiet and very comfortable. We were originally given a room on the ocean side but when we arrived the room was very hot from the afternoon sun so we changed to the back of the hotel facing the mountain. Nice bar area and lounge, really good restaurant, great staff. Location is about 10 miles from the Glacier Lagoon. Cost was $513 USD per night.
