Is there both a bar and restaurant dinner menu? Has anyone stayed using spg points and if so do you recall how many points were required for a free night?

          Thanks to everyone who has helped me so far, one more question please! Did anyone drive themselves to Klaki Base to go on a snowmobile on Langjokull Glacier? If so was it worth the 2hr40 min drive? Ideally is like a snowmobile trip closer to the hotel so would appreciate any recommendations! Thanks
