overpriced outdated room. with no view to the close by waterfall. as we were somewhat un-politely greeted after ringing the bell a view times. we were asked how we can be helped. "we would like to check in" - "are you sure ?!" - "yes I am" "ohoh yes i see your reservation here ..." "can we dine here tonight ?" - "no, only if you paid for dinner with the reservation, but you can go next door if you go quickly, you can check in when you come back" - "ok" as we came back from dinner, we were told "they thought we wouldn't be showing up (due to a reservation from the US during covid) but they "upgraded" us to a nicer room (which i had booked) and "free" breakfast (which i had paid for too), we did get a creme brulee tho and a bed for the night ... with a different experience it would be probably 3, maybe 4 stars ... but still pricey

Perfect for our trip along the south of Iceland. Just by beautiful Skogafoss waterfall. Great room, hot tub and sauna were great after being in the cold all day and really friendly staff! Definitely recommend!
