    The building is quite old. Needed some updates.

    The price is unbeatable. Bed was really comfortable and the place is in the middle of nowhere (which for us is a good thing). Also the fact that there is a sink in the bathroom is great.

    It is isolated. Other than what the hotel had, there was nothing to do. The hot pool was full of algae and was almost luke warm. It was also very small. The restaurant was disappointing.

    The hotel isn't carpeted so the halls echoed pretty bad. I had earplugs so it didn't bother me too much, but my husband didn't sleep very well.

    The owners are new and very friendly! The breakfast was included and it was amazing! The room was large and the beds were comfy! The campsite was full in town so we had to find last minute accommodations, I am really glad we found this place. I think it would be a GREAT place for someone who is backpacking and/or hiking as there are some great mountains nearby!

    It reminded me of an old hospital at first. The age of this place really shines through! A few updates could really help. Other than extremely noisy doors, it turned out to be OK in the end.

    Housekeeping leaves a little to be desired. Trash is not emptied every day and even if you leave a towel on the floor they do not give you a new towel. Although they did provide clean towels when asked.

    The people were super friendly and helpful and the breakfast was hearty. Location for a country hotel was really good

    This hotel does not have a great standard. It is overpriced and the old hotel rooms should be renovated as soon as possible. The shared bathroom looks like a 70's bathroom and the water from the tap has the most awful smell. Would not recommend staying there unless you cannot find another place to sleep.

    Pool hours were from 1000 until 1900, which excludes anybody that's doing any serious vacationing. The staff is unfriendly and robotic with a bit of an attitude. I never heard a civil greeting or acknowledgement.

    We had a room with a shared bathroom (other options were not available) and in the morning the toilets were very dirty. Of course these are the guests that do it, however, the hotel should clean it more often.

    The hotel was very basic, but the staff was very nice and excellent breakfast included. The swimming pool was definitely a highlight for a very reasonable price.

    The staff were very disinterested in helping, particularly the reception staff who were often wearing earphones. Breakfast was more expensive than anywhere we stayed outside Reykjavik but not that great a spread. The shower alternated between hot and cold - no matter where the thermostat was set - and there was no plug for the sink.

    A comfortable bed and clean room is about all I can say that's positive.

    Wi-Fi was very poor at this hotel, only place where you could get a connection was in the reception area, which also sold drinks etc..maybe a way to sell drinks!!! We had an evening meal at this hotel which was very poor, not much on the plate, had to ask for bread to fill up on. After our evening meal experience there was no way we were going to pay extra for breakfast which was very expensive and if it was the same standard as the evening meal would have been a total waste of money
