The location was good for sightseeing itinerary. We splurged for a 5 star hotel, however this property misses the mark in this category. Rooms are nicely decorated, and staff was friendly. Unfortunately our room faced a building under construction. Not something I was expecting at the price. Beds are comfortable, but might be considered way too soft for some. I would have preferred to have paid less to stay somewhere with more local charm.

This is a utilitarian yet comfortable hotel located in the heart of the Golden Circle natural scenic area of Iceland. The rooms are nice, with lovely views of the mountains. Several single story buildings Are set amongst a circular drive-way. While some views are slightly obstructed by the other buildings and new construction, the views are still lovely. No design awards for the architecture, but the modernized bathrooms are nice. Staff is courteous and helpful. Definitely not a “big city” type hotel.

We picked this hotel because it said it was a 5 star accommodation but it was anything but. It felt like a 3 star. We also picked this place because it was VIP access for my gold membership which we didn't receive any of the gold benefits. We had to change rooms from the beginning because the room they first gave us was not correct and then the second room wasn't entirely clean -- hair on the floor, the entire thing freaked me out. The hot tub was nice. Restaurant was just okay in compassion to the other places we stayed in Iceland.
