Great hotel, shame about some inconsiderate guests
Great stay in Iceland. Exactly what we wanted. A short walk to the Blue Lagoon. Be warned that there is nothing else around, you can’t just pop out anywhere. The walls are quite thin and unfortunately we were next to some pretty inconsiderate people who were screaming loudly at all hours of the night and morning but that’s not the hotels fault. Max’s restaurant food was delicious and breakfast was great too! Scenery is second to none. Staff were helpful and booked trips for us etc and got a call when the Northern Lights came out. Free hot drinks and waffles in the afternoon is a nice touch. All in all a great trip and would recommend this hotel. Thank you!

The staff is friendly. We like their house room, the 24hr coffee/tea corner.

Super relax
Lovely location. Peaceful, like home away from home. Staff very helpful! Shame that the Blue Lagoon was closed and not notified anywhere!!

Great place
Great volcanic surroundings and a short walk to the blue lagoon. Positioned under one of the northern lights view points. Quiet location and hotel. A power plant is close by, but that's about it.
