    Lovely little hotel. Salmon in the restaurant was fantastic. Friendly and helpful staff. I was very pleasantly surprised by the charm of the hotel. It was a nice place to spend the night. The room was nice and comfortable.

    Small "homey" hotel in the south. Perfect base to see the Geysir Hot Spring Area, also close to Thingvellir National Park and Gullfoss. The hotel has two hot tubs and they help you relax after a long day. There is also a small library/bar area.
