Frustrating stay
This previously family owned property has many things in its favour but still a way to go to offer a consistent experience to its customers. It is located well to visit key local attractions, we were welcomed professionally and liked the times we used the bar area. The dining area décor is good and the evening meal menu ok (but not good enough to be tempted to eat there twice. Unfortunately the quality of the room was well below average. 1970s style work furniture and a small rather musty smelling bathroom really soured the experience, despite there being tea and coffee making facilities which was a bonus compared to other properties we used. The shower temperature was very unreliable too despite supposedly being thermostatically controlled. Breakfast was generally good but if we ate later in the morning some choices were no longer available such as fruit and yogurt. By our third and final day the only fruit on offer was rather brown-coloured apple hacked into chunks! It was a frustrating stay - hopefully, over time, they will address the issues with the hotel as it has so much potential

The property and the surrounding region are both beautiful and great for exploring. The hotel itself was incredible - the staff were friendly, the bed was very comfortable, the ammenities were new, and the hot tub was excellent!

Fair 4.0
paid for 2 nights, left after 1. Do not recommend
This hotel is in a beautiful location along the Golden Circle and close to the bigger town of Selfoss. The hotel itself is in desperate need of renovation and repair. Our room was tiny, with extremely old furniture, no bathroom space to even brush your teeth and a weird shower combination that left the entire bathroom floor wet. Just touching the greasy remote for the television was disgusting. We booked and paid for two nights and we were so unhappy that we left after the first night, losing our second night's payment. For the money, this hotel is well below the standards of any hotel we stayed in Iceland. The pictures on the website depict modern rooms with nice furniture, which was obviously nothing like our room. The breakfast was fine. The staff were not necessarily rude, but were definitely not friendly.

Overall it was good. The remote for the tv did not work. There should really be a phone in the rook, in case for emergencies. This is a great place to stay if you want to stay outside of the city!

Really nice hotel in the country
Stay in the suite; it is fantastic. Hotel staff were super and friendly. Breakfast was very good. Only drawback was it is located far from the main cities in the area.

Very good 8.0
Breakfast was very good. The rest of the stay was rather underwhelming, would have liked to know that the front desk did not have staffing after a certain hour. Also, the pictures of the rooms that were posted did not reflect the actual rooms. Would suggest also posting the rooms that aren’t updated so that guests know what they are getting in to
