Overall was a perfectly fine hotel. I was disappointed that both the Sauna and Hot Tub were out of service. It was the only reason we chose the hotel over others

Small hotel in great location for hiking near skogafoss waterfall. Some rooms are pretty small, others are a bit better sized. Quiet area, and friendly staff, but it seems they’re just getting staffing levels back up to where they were. Restaurant was closed (staffing issues apparently), but the did offer a nice breakfast.

Comfortable beds, nice window view, good breakfast. What I didn’t like is that the room wasn’t tidied up/cleaned, the windows were difficult to open and close, the shower curtain kept falling off the rail, the TV and the wifi didn’t always work well.

This property is in a good location close to some local attractions. It is an interesting design set within its own grounds. However it lets it’s self down on the little things, small jobs that should have all be sorted during the quiet Covid times like the outside shower near the hot tub not working or the hairdryer in the room. Or the Sauna. We arrived 2 hours early for check in which at 16.00 is one of the latest I have come across! We did not plan to arrive early but these things occasionally happen, good hotels normally just deal with it, and even if the room is not ready they find somewhere for you to wait. We went to a local attraction for an hour then returned and sat in the car outside for another hour. The room was fairly clean but there was a bit of an odour from the bathroom. We had to wait an hour to use the hot tub ‘ which had “just been cleaned” however while sitting in it soon realised there were things suspended in the water which suggested the plan was to clean it but they ran out of time. The evening meal was good but the service was very slow. It’s a shame as they could up there game very easily.

We visited this hotel in March 2022.The hotel is in a remote location near the Skogafoss waterfall, which was beautiful. We were privileged to meet the owner since the manager was out sick during our stay. We were treated to fresh cooked dinners with lovely desserts (the lamb medallions with demi glaze were to die for!). Breakfast was a full hot meal with a selection of fresh baked breads and cake. The room was clean and included TV and WiFi. We will definitely stay here again when we return during the summer.
