Great place. Highly recommended. We had a broken shelf in our bathroom which left no place to put our toiletries, but I’m sure this was an anomaly. Everything else was terrific.

Unique hotel with great breakfast incl. local foods. Rooms are very clean and nicely appointed. Great hotel if you plan to explore Diamond beach, which is a must see!

The hotel was very nice and had a nice free buffet breakfast. We arrived quite late (after the front desk closed) but they were very flexible and gave us intrusions about how to get into our room after hours.

The room was very clean (new) and comfortable. As my trip progressed, I noticed the photos of all the places I stayed don't do them justice. I didn't get a chance to have dinner because I checked in so late. Breakfast was very good in terms of options and plentiful.

We stayed here for three nights. Love everything here: location to diamond beach, staff, best breakfast... dinner is great as well. Only downside: kitchen is a little far away from room, special challenge if bad weather.

We really enjoyed our stay and they went out of their way to help us with our late arrival, which was greatly appreciated. The facility and our room was clean and comfortable, the room spacious. The food in the restaurant was very good. I would love to stay here again.

Nice view of the water & mountain ridge. Clean & modern atmosphere. Will recommend.

Nice beds and facilities. The hotel itself was comfy and clean. The food at the restaurant is great, and free breakfast in the morning is very good. Eat as much as you can to get your money’s worth! Dinner is very expensive (but so is most of Iceland). There is not another restaurant for 30+ minutes so be prepared. Free entry into the little museum with audio tour, but we found it quite boring (others may love to know the history about the writer for whom it’s made).

Good bed, but very weak shower and the photo shown is the lounge and museum, not the hotel rooms

I stayed in the two bedroom apartment with my wife and two daughters while travelling the ring road. The apartment was large with a living room and kitchen. Everything was clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and helpful. We also ate dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and the food was excellent. We enjoyed the view of the water and the sheep roaming the pasture behind our apartment. Highly recommend if you are travelling the ring road or want to visit the black sand beaches.

Easy check-in. Nice comfortable room. Interesting exhibit on site.

We weren't sure what to expect when booking this hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised. The location to the Lagoon is fantastic and it is in a beautiful area out in the country. The room was very clean with a wonderful bathroom. Staff was so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing. Would definitely recommend.

My family stayed in one of the apartments here, not a regular room. There is a small yellow building facing the water, each floor has a sitting area, bedrooms, and bath. I stayed in the lower level. The common area was comfortable, with a pull-out couch, table, chairs and TV. The kitchen is attached to the common room, with a small fridge, stove, sink, electric kettle and coffee maker. Each bedroom has a sink so you don't have to tie up the bathroom to brush your teeth. Overall the apartment was very quiet and comfortable, though if there is someone staying upstairs, you can hear them walking around. The scenery is nice (water in front, mountains in back) and the location is very serene. Note that the building is located next to the barn, so if horse/sheep sounds or smells bother you, it might be an issue. The staff were very helpful, both for lodging and dining. The food at the restaurant was quite good, and there is a large assortment of things at breakfast.

Stayed two nights in the new building which is right next to the water. Room was clean and comfortable. Saw the Northern Lights one night which were incredible. Restaurant is a little on the expensive side but serves good food and is much more convenient than driving to Hofn for dinner. Hotel is in a nice location for visiting attractions such as the lagoon and Diamond Beach.

Spacious conformance rooms, beautiful setting next to the ocean at the base of a mountain. Great food at the restaurant.

I stayed for two nights Nov 10,11, 2017. It was easy to find after a long drive from the airport (400km). The check in was smooth as I had paid through Orbitz. There are two buildings next to the ocean, though I didn't see a direct access. The rooms are really clean. The best part is that it is geothermal temperature regulated. So there is no heating system. The floors are warm, esp in the bathroom -- I was walking around barefoot. The rooms are away from reception but they do have a lobby in the room area. It has hot water, coffee 24 hours and a person during the day till 10 pm. The breakfast buffet is included and is excellent European + Icelandic fish ( i think it is pickled herring). It is simply superb. The dinner is le carte. It is expensive. You can get an arctic char with some salad and bread for 40 bucks. I heard the lamb chops are superb from their own farm, I don't eat red meat. I splurged on a seafood plate - 5 or 6 small lobster tails, arctic char and cod. I was able to finish it. The glacier hike tours start from here. They are the best with guides who are passionate about their work. Learnt a lot during the hike. I was out during the day. I was also out during the night chasing aurora. But I wish I can just stay there for a few days doing nothing.

The bathroom was smelling like pee and the staff was not at all accommodating given that you are in the middle of nowhere.
