I stayed here for two nights and had a very comfortable room which overlooked a mountain. The window would not open so the room got quite hot. There was a long power cut during my stay which the kitchen and serving staff coped with admirably. The refectory style dining room was full and very noisy. There were no candles or...

We spent just one night here but it was a great visit. Our room was in a new building next to the main building. Our room was very new and clean, very comfortable. Great beds and a good shower. We also had dinner in the hotel and eventhough there was a large group of Asian tourists there, we were served...

This modest hotel has world-class staff. The rooms are safe and clean, and the dining room comparable with most I experienced on my mid-budget trip to Iceland. However, the staff were outstanding. The hotel is challenging to find in the dark and located at the top of a small mountain on a dirt road. It is probably a fine drive...

We had a one night stay here while touring Iceland. The website that I booked on didn't offer a family room but I'd requested 2 rooms next to each other. When we arrived the person at the desk asked if we'd prefer a family room, and explained that they'd set up a bigger room and also 2 double rooms for...

Had a winter holiday in Iceland, stayed a night at Hotel Dyrholaey. Didn't really have a day time view, arrived at night, left in the morning while it was still dark. My impression is the hotel is a no frills hotel, ample space for car park, sits on a little hill (not sure what's the view). Rooms are decent, but...

We travelled here as part of our itinerary with a school party via 'Discover the World'. The hotel looks like a concentration camp from the outside, but the views are incredible and this is an excellent place from which you could see the Northern Lights if the conditions are right. We ate well here in the evening (barbecue chicken) and...

The hotel is situated right on the top of the small hill with the open Ocien as the foreground, this is a million dollar view!! The hotel is in a low rise style with a bar at the lobby. I spent long hour at night in a very comfort sofa to drink and chat with my friend in a really...

The hotel is located up a gravel road far above Hwy 1; be on the lookout for the sign or you'll miss it. We were coming from the evening ferry from the Westman Islands and it was less than an hour's drive. Despite the charmless lobby, and the tour groups, the room was cozy, the bed comfortable and the shower...

We had 3 rooms booked. We made it straight from the Airport ahead of check in time.The staff has graciously offered free breakfast while they've rushed to prepare our rooms. Clean and simple, excellent location for volcano, glacier, etc walks.

Hairs (a few, not only one ) on the bed sheet and towel upon arrival. No towel hook in bathroom. Internet signal is good, electricity outlet is well located in room. Location is good, a few munites from Dyholaey.
