The location is very accessible and convenient, the room is very big but the food that they provide is not the best we had. It is ok though, considering you are not gonna find any other restaurant in the area. The owner is very trustworthy, we had a big mistake with the credit card charge and he managed to give...

Got off a red eye flight from Canada and drove to this place. This place has everything - gas station, restaurant and ensuite rooms. Room's size is good. Bathroom is a bit small but we are in the middle of no where .. can't expect more. They allowed us to check in at 1pm. Thanks for that. Walking distance to...

This place is right on the HWY 1 and has a gas bar. Double Room $115 Cnd.The rooms are in a separate structure away from the main building. You can only get Wifi in the main building which contains their restaurant. Banged my elbow on the wall fixture as it is too close to the shower. Shower head was broken.

When we first arrived, I thought I had made a mistake booking a night's stay here, as the place looked on first appearance to be a little run down. However I was proved wrong - admittedly the accommodation is no frills - it does what it says on the tin and offers good value for money. What made our stay...

We love pasta and in our opinion this place has the best Pasta in Iceland. Normally when we travel trough or around Iceland we eat local food. The Grabrok Restaurant offers both traditional things and again "THE PASTA". It's home made from the scratch :-) The accommodation was the biggest surprise. From the outside you cannot see what lays inside....

Don't be fooled by the appearance. This hotel is in the middle of nowhere on the side of the road and when we arrived I thought "OMG! I'm not getting a shower today..." The place looked just like an old prefabricated building like the ones they use on building or road works so I was terribly disappointed. Then we entered...

The rooms were quaint and small, but well kept. Food at the restaurant was decent. It was nice to have a friendly stop along the way. Staff was enjoyable. We didn't have the breakfast but it was offered at an additional cost.

I came to dine here. The food was expensive and The Hamburger was overcooked and the bacon slice was too thick. I dont recomment this restaurant for family visit. I payed over 10.000kr for 4 Hamburger and only two of them had cheese on it.
