Pros: Excellent food, absolutely lovely people. Quiet tiled hot tub and nearby raised deck for taking in the water views. Our favorite stay of the trip. Nearby Hofsós pool is a heated, infinity, lap-swimming pool right on water as well.
Cons: Not much to complain about. Bathrooms were clean and plenty of hot water, but could use lights over the showers.
