The views from the room and restaurant was phenomenal. The outside is not much to look at, but the inside was really nicely designed in the public spaces. The room was average in size and appearance and the bathrooms were functional and clean. No bathtub. However, a lovely view. And the hottubs were nice. Location for viewing the Gullfoss waterfall is of course great, especially if you are doing the Golden circle clockwise.

I loved that the rooms have doors to walk outside of your bedroom. The staff knocked on our door to view the Northern Lights. The restaurant offers a variety of items on their menu. It was great since we were exhausted and not able to drive around looking for a place to get some food. The staff was very friendly and even let us check in early. The room is spacious enough for 2 people. The bathroom was very clean and plenty of hot water. The room does get a little warm, but we opened our windows. I would definitely recommend this place.

A solid place to stay. Conveniently located. Breakfast was a little sparse, but dinner in the restaurant was good.

Very clean rooms, good food at dinner and. Real fast. Great location close to geysir and gullfoss

Isolated quiet hotel. Food on their restaurant was great. Second time that stayed at this hotel. Like that is really quie. If the sky was clear it would be a great view as there is no light pollution.

Newer hotel. Very nice! Staff was great. Hotel would keep a look out for the Northern Lights and call to your room if they spot them. We had a great view of the Northern Lights right from the Parking lot.

If you want to sleep between the stars this is the location. No light pollution as this is the only place in the area. During the night if cloudy you cannot see a foot in front of you.
