    Paid $500 for the rooms and the room is very very small. The curtains are useless and woke everyone up at 6am as there is a 6 inch gap.

    Room too warm. Super noisy hotel...guess it's not necessarily the hotel's fault but still. Room very very small. Cleanliness is so so.

    Check shower before accepting room.

    All perfect except the shower problems: drain plugged and smelly.

    Gorgeous, modern hotel where you wouldn't expect to find one (in a very rural setting outside Hofn). The restaurant and bar was reasonably priced and great views everywhere.

    We were upgraded to a better room by Maciej who was very friendly and knowledgeable. Wonderful reception after driving 3 hours in wind and rain.

    The room is very small. The water temperature is unstable due to the unstable water pressure. The shower room is too small to turn around. The worst part is I don't feel any ventilation in this hotel. Strong restaurant smell is the hall way. After taking shower, the room is very dump but there is no air conditioning available.

    Staff need to learn to be more service oriented. It’s a hotel for leisure not a prison

    Everything was fantastic. We ate dinner here which was also good, but don’t be hungry as the portions are very small
