    Do not recommend staying here

    TV did not work, which they acknowledged, there was barely any toilet paper on the roll with no spare roll and no tissue. Requested a new roll to have on hand and was given a commercial roll of toilet paper! Room was only large enough for a twin bed but they had two twin beds in there. Bathroom was very tiny and had a squeegee on a pole for you to clean up the water mess from taking a shower. I didn’t take a shower because there wasn’t a hairdryer. There was a pot of hot water in the common area for you to make coffee, but there was no coffee in the room, I later found out they ran out. In the morning their coffee machine was broken. We needed to wait for someone to arrive with carafes of coffee. Breakfast was cold continental and minimal. If we wanted anything different we would need to pay for it. This is a popular truck stop. At dinner time there were idling trucks in the front of restaurant, under our room window, this went on for hours. I don’t know who the people are that say this place is a hidden gem but I would definitely tell everyone to keep on driving and stay somewhere else. We also didn’t eat dinner here, had a wonderful dinner in the town of Hvammstangi 16 mins away.

    Nice stopover hotel for long drive

    Convenient hotel along the main road from Akureyri and Reykjavic. Late after hours check-in available upon request. We stayed in a room with a bunk bed. Friendly server at the breakfast.

    This property is close to where Hvitserkur is. The room was a bit tight but the bed was comfortable. The toilet was also tight but decent. Good restaurant located on the property. Just take note that this does not have an elevator and has a spiral staircase leading to the second floor.

    Nice little hotel

    The reception there was nice but they did not pick up the phone nor answer the fb messages we sent. Our room was very small but that worked quite well for our trip as we only slept there. It was quite uncomfortable how much you could hear through the walls, we could hear the whole conversation going on in the next room. But other than that the accomidation was fine and clean. There was no view from our room.

    The only negative aspect of this hotel/restaurant is that it is so far from town. Otherwise, everything was wonderful! Especially loved the breakfast platter (see picture).

    Hotel is above an N1 gas station, but it was quiet except for some occasional road noise outside. At check-in my first impression was the staff would not be too friendly, but then I learned they were from East Europe so probably just a language barrier. The breakfast was great. During breakfast the owner came to our table and was very friendly, making suggestions for our direction of travel. Overall it was a good experience .
