One night stay w/daughter before hiking Hvannadalshnjúkur. Trip postponed 2x bc of weather. Staff extremely accommodating when we had to change booking twice. Allowed us to keep room to rest and shower after hike, no rush to be rid of us so we could just take our time to recover. Incredibly appreciated! Even served "breakfast" from 23.00 till after 01.00 for hikers who were setting out. These people know what their guests need and provide it with a smile. Thank you so much!
Ideally situated close to skaftafell national park, with nice views of the glaciers surrounding us. The staff was really nice and welcoming, and room very comfy.
Great location after a day exploring Skaftafell. Comfortable room and very accommodating staff who allowed us a late checkout after we were stuck in a blizzard. Another wonderful example of Icelandic hospitality!
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious in the restaurant as well as breakfast. It was near the Skaftafell visitor center where were going on a glacier walk.
