The room was warm & clean ( in the newer wing, better?), the beds were unusually good, and we were blessed with a choice of pillows. The restaurant was outstanding - included. the owner coming around for a chat and offering good advice re our plans for the next day. And to cap it all we were treated to the Northern Lights ( having ticked the form at reception " wake me if they show"). Overall a great experience.

Very simple and nice. Quality of the room is good value. The non-ocean view rooms face the dirt wall, so that's not very aesthestically pleasing. Instead of a full sized or queen sized bed, it is 2 twin sized beds pushed together.
This is one of the best hotels we stayed on our holidays in Iceland. It is close to the Geysir and some volcanos, it is also close to the valley where tectonic plates meet and it is just a very lovely and beautiful place.
It has amazing rooms with extremely comfortable beds, very professional staff who make you feel in a really luxury hotel, the room for breakfast is sooo beautiful we stayed there for more than 2 hours and the food is delicious.
We want to go back and stay in this hotel again.

Stayed one night in a room for 3. Room was spacious and beds comfortable. Also had a bath in the bathroom as well as a shower. Excellent swimming pool and hot tub outside. Breakfast was poor so recommend finding a local bakery instead.
This is a nice hotel in an area of Iceland that has few. The location is convenient to some very scenic places like the Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon, and is within driving distance of Skaftafell, the major draw in the area. It is a little expensive, but the rooms are nice. Dinner is expensive (though not unduly so by Icelandic standards), and the breakfast is terrific (though it costs extra). Wi-fi was free when we were there, though this may not always be so. The standard rooms do not include a kettle or coffee-maker, but you can get a teapot full of hot water at the restaurant, so bring your own teabags and instant coffee.
I've stayed in this hotel several times in the past and it has always been fine, the rooms were a little basic but that was never a problem.
It has now changed owner and is part of a chain. On arrival there are no reception staff, just a phone number to ring, the person who answered told me someone would be along to check me in (I think if I had prepaid I would have been given the pin number to the room) Half an hour later I rang again and was told it would be another 30 minutes.
When some finely turned up I must admit I was a little annoyed at the unexpected wait, so asked to see the room before I paid, which was the first thing the receptionist wanted done. The room was fairly tidy but there was to much mould in the shower and on the window so I left to find some where else.
Probably if the lady on the phone had mentioned there would be an hours wait and the room had been a little better kept I would have stayed, but not for the three nights I had planned.
I stayed one night with my partner and was very impressed. The hotel had a very modern feel and the sauna/hot tub were excellent. The front desk staff told us about a waterfall about an hour walk (roundtrip) away and it was fantastic. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is exploring the south of iceland.
An affordable option, but also truly an enjoyable one. The hotel was exceptionally clean and orderly. Breakfast, though not American style (warning to all my fellow Americans if you are a picky eater), was more than adequate with a variety of options to meet the needs of guests (meat, cheese, cereal, yogurt, salad, hot drinks, juice). We had plenty to eat. Also, I've seen several reviews that state the staff is not friendly; we did not experience this at all. We were greeted and shown a quick tour. Icelanders are quietly welcoming and don't expect them to probe you with many questions, but they are always polite and helpful. So, if you require some help, just ask!
Very well located, this is a magical, welcoming spot in the middle of the south-western island. The facilities are excellent and the manager (Anias, spelling?) was particularly engaging and accommodating towards us. Situated 18km outside Selfoss, this place is sufficiently close to civilization but well located to create the effect of being in the countryside. Although self-catering, the rooms are warm and clean, and its even possible to book houses with personal hot-spots! The cottages were definitely a highlight for us during our visit to Iceland.
Loved being in the country not the city and found it convenient to access a lot of the drivable sights in west and southern Iceland. Very clean and quiet, comfy and soft cotton sheets and clouds for pillows. Loved the spacious apartment, easy showers and ability to dry hand washing on safe radiant heaters in the rooms.
Terrific views of midnight sun on ice-covered Hecla out the window from Room 204.
Came late the first day (didn't understand it was two hours from the airport when booking) so came without food and found only a tiny grocery store open nearby. I suggest buying food along the way since options once there are limited.
Staff were extremely available and helpful, loved the spacious room and pastoral landscape.
Took some photos but don't see any place to post them here...inside is much nicer than the outside of the buildings suggest (as seems to be the case in all of what we saw in Iceland).
