small and no equipment room, but expensive
Staff were very helpful in arranging for riding; the food was outstanding for dinner and the dining room very attractive. Guest room had nice furnishings and was roomy.
the dining room was very warm in the evening the the flies, also there at breakfast, took away somewhat from the enjoyment of the excellent food
Excellent staff, perfect dinner, great location and view
hotel is nice and very comfort
internet access is poor. too expensive
Very nice reception and good location; rooms of good size; interesting internal decoration and building. Provided facilities for smokers that were better than at the other hotels in Iceland that we visited. Hospitality and service was better than in the other hotels in Iceland of visit (including First Class hotels)
No (except that smoking rooms were not available - however this is true for all hotels in Iceland and not something special for this hotel)
The location. It was great to be able to get out to the waterfall in the morning before anyone else arrived.
We were disappointed that neither the hot tub nor the sauna were working when we stayed. We also felt that the hotel was overpriced for what it offered, compared with the other accomodation we stayed in in Iceland.
