Really nice 2 day stay
We stayed 2 days to celebrate my birthday. I really wanted to do nothing but relax, enjoy Iceland’s beautiful scenery, have a nice meal, float in the hot pool, and possibly see the northern lights. I was able to do most of these things. Having been to this region of Iceland before, we knew that the hotel is in the middle of nowhere. We arrived during a blizzard and the road actually was closed after our arrival. We knew we would be “trapped” at the hotel and planned accordingly. We brought enough food for our breakfasts, lunches and one night’s dinner - we ate all of these in our room. We stored cold items in either our car or on our window sill which was very cold. We were simply not interested in being forced to spend hundreds of dollars in the restaurant for meals, as there is literally no other choice in the winter with closed roads. One cocktail in the bar set us back $21. We did have one dinner in the restaurant and it was delicious and a lovely evening. There were a few things we were disappointed in: we booked the room for 2 people but there was only coffee for 1. Of course when we asked, we were provided supplies, but we should not have had to ask. We wanted to soak in the pool but did not feel that it was warm enough- ironic given that the geothermal plant is within sight. For point of comparison, we did swim at the local outdoor pool in Reykjavik for the 4 prior days. Lastly, when we went to the relaxation room, there was only a pile of dirty cups so no tea for us.

Save your money
We payed for a deluxe room and the view horrible as they don’t tell you it is next to a geothermal power. perhaps if we were on the other sides of the building the view would have been much better as that side faces the mountains. The sauna was locked for some reason. The place is way overpriced. The rooms are clean but very small. I would recommend bringing food as once you are there you have no choice but to dine there as you are in the middle of nowhere but the food is also over priced. The drinks are good though....
