I reached early and the reception staff let me use the bathroom to freshen up, as well as the use of the luggage room. I booked a single room and it was comfortable (lighting in the room could have been brighter). No wait times to use the restrooms and showers.

If you're heading towards Skaftafell National Park (which is incredibly beautiful), you have very limited options of places to stay. This location is pretty decent as it's <1 hour drive from the park. My husband and I stayed here 1 night as we were making our way around the Ring Road. Compared to the many other hotels we stayed at, this one was a bit more roomy with a larger bathroom, and more modern looking inside. Friendly and accommodating staff and you can book your day excursions, which you can expect at almost all the hotels in general. The hotel restaurant is quite pricey and a reservation is highly encouraged. We ended up walking a few minutes to the only other restaurant in town Systrakaffi that also had traditional Icelandic food which was more normal priced (which meant still quite pricey, but hell it's Iceland!). The hotel has a nice bar/lounge area which really is the only place to truly hang out in the evening. But hey you're far enough from any large city where you could try to see the Northern Lights!
Hotel Laxnes was a great little place to stay. We did so much everyday we slept like babies anyway! It was a little out of the way but a number 15 bus takes you to Reykjavik city centre. I'd much prefer to stay here, we hired a car. Nice little waterfall walk about 15 minutes away and thermal pool. Breakfast was very basic but did the job. Waffles, cereal, toast. There is a great little bakery opposite, a supermarket, dominos, KFC and a sports bar to drink and eat in.
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Iceland.
