Very friendly staff, unique hotel, didn't like the light pollution from the street lights for the power plant. Great spot for viewing the Northern Lights and getting around to sites like the geyser and national park. They have a limited menu, but the food was great! I would recommend this hotel

One of the most memorable hotel stays. We stayed for two days in December. It's far enough from Reykjavic (about an hour drive), isolated and remote. Super chill vibes. Picturesque scenery. A winter wonderland retreat. The weather was snowy so we were concerned about driving there. Check road conditions often on It turned out fine though: nothing a small AWD vehicle can't handle, even with moderate snow.

We made a last minute reservation, we booked a deluxe room for 3. Showed up after a long day. Front desk said they showed a reservation only for 2. We asked for a roll away and was told that was only for those 12 and under. My son (over 12) offered to sleep in same bed or on the floor. Front desk said they only allow two people per room. They made us book a second room for $600 for one night. No effort to accomodate in anyway. They knew they had us out in the middle of nowhere at evening time and took advantage of us. Will never go back
