    The young girl at the front desk was so nice and helpful, she found us both chargers for our phones (weather prevented us from going home) and the free breakfast was great! The available tea 24/7 on a cold winters night was a warm welcome.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Nice place. Room was very nice, comfortable bed and warm duvet. Private bath, shower was great. Restaurant on site was handy. Only complaint was that on our second night there was a crazy storm with high winds and blowing snow. One parking lot was not pliers forcing everyone to park in the smaller lot. Several people ran out of gas getting there and as there was limited parking people had to park one behind the other. Next morning all the cars were snowed in with 4 foot drifts. One snow shovel for the whole place! No one cleared the parking lot. We had to leave early and my son shoveled for better part of an hour with the only contraption given to him being a snow scraper thingy. After digging out our car we discovered the guy behind us was one of the people out of gas. Had to dig him out too and then try to push his car out of the way so we could leave. Considering this is Iceland you would think they could be a little more prepared for bad weather. 2 or 3 shovels, maybe a gas can or two with enough fuel to get someone to a gas station. Plowing our the parking lot and a couple people to help with shoveling guests out. We were booked into tours for 9 am. Got up at 6, it was a 30 minute drive away and we made it with only a few minutes to spare because of the disorganization. Other than that enjoyed our stay.

    Very pleasant hotel on our way to the Glacier Lagoon. The hotel staff was very nice and the rooms were clean. We ended up having dinner at the hotel as well. My husband had the lamb soup and I had the lobster soup. Both were flavorful. Expensive for us, but not expensive for Iceland standards. Breakfast was included with our room and it was delicious.

    The property is very secluded and provides dark skies for viewing the Aurora Borealis which we were lucky to have glimpsed. We booked a triple room in the new building, which was large and comfortable but a little bare, no TV. There was free coffee from an espresso machine in the common area as well as in the restaurant. Staff was friendly and the stay included a very good breakfast.

    We loved Lilja

    Our stay at Lilja was great. We enjoyed the spacious room, amazing views, and excellent vegetarian food selection at their restaurant. Breakfast was fantastic, with great vegetarian options and a self serve coffee machine to enjoy morning cappuccinos.

    We liked that there was a good breakfast included, room was small but bed was very comfortable. Tv was broken and hotel across the parking lot kept lights on during northern lights which was distracting and difficult for the eyes.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Iceland experienced a surge of tourists over 5 yrs and their answer is to build box hotels with no character to meet the demand! This is one of those hotels too often found now in Iceland! View and noise of the main road directly in front and in the distant beauty! No TV, radio, pictures on the wall, amenities, small dinner selection etc Breakfast was the only cold buffet we experienced in 11 nights at this price point ! We would not recommend or rebook this hotel. There are way better!
