Close enough to hofn and very wonderful stay!! Very comfortable and accommodating. We wish we were staying longer in this town. Definitely a great hotel with beautiful scenery and wonderful staff. Our room was huge and the bedding was extra comfortable

The hotel was located 10 mins from Hofn town & can be reached easily by driving. The rooms are modern, comfortable with all the necessary amenities for comfort, albeit a bit small but the location is truly wonderful with views to the mountain & fields. The breakfast was good and the staff friendly.

The location of the hotel is just a few minutes outside of Hofn. It's easy to go out for dinner in town and return to the hotel for a nice night of sleep! The staff upgraded our room when they saw on my reservation we were on our honeymoon. We got a giant spacious suite, with a big balcony and...

This hotel is located just off highway 1 but well away from the road so that traffic noise is not a problem. It is a modern sleek building that fits well into the beautiful scenery behind it. There are wonderful views of the glacier from the public areas & some of the bedrooms. We were lucky to be treated to...

We were trapped east of Jokulsarlon due to the Ring Road being closed with just a backpack and some hiking gear. Reception went above and beyond with providing insight into the weather conditions, letting us borrow a USB power adapter, and offering to let us stay past the regular check out time should the road not reopen. Restaurant was good,...

Given wrong room (lower standard) on check-in. WHY do hotels do this? Sorted quickly - but pretty inconvenient. Change of rooms meant we didn't get room serviced during the day - we had to ask on return from day-trip. WHY? Not much coffee in room, and no green tea ... got what we wanted after asking... but WHY did we...

We are in the process of changing from...
