Laugarvatn stay
The rooms were quite adequate. Clean and relatively quiet. There was food available for purchase but not what we would want for the price. In Iceland we found out that it is common to ask guests to remove shoes in the foyer, so we had to go in sock feet to the 2nd floor. There is an elevator. Overall good for a one night stay but not where I would want to spend a long visit.

Good size quadruple room with private bathroom, beds are clean and room is easy to access from the back car park, which was quite convenient if you have big luggage to carry. Walls are quite thin though, and the kitchen can get really noisy with other travellers drinking & playing games until midnight or later. If you don't mind that, then it's all good.
