The Hotel Ranga offers an excellent dining experience. From a fully stocked bar that allows you to enjoy a nice drink before dinner (or a great one after) and feel the atmosphere of the place. The place is built right next to a flowing river and can offer some amazing aurora views that would make for an amazing end to... More

We were pleased to meet the owner who introduced himself to us during dinner. He seemed really interested in our travels and experiences in Iceland. We had dinner both nights at the hotel and found the... More

We started with the seafood soup and wild mushroom soup, both very tasty. I had the Arctic char and my wife had the cod. They were probably the best we had on the trip. For dessert, we had the carrot cake which had an unusual presentation, but very good.

Lovely hotel with good facilities, including comfortable bar, good quality restaurant and outdoor hot tubs. The only think that let it down was the room lighting. There didn't seem to be enough lighting once it was dark. This was frustrating for a very short-sighted person!

We stayed three nights and absolutely loved the place. We were there in March so fishing wasn't an option, but they did organise ATV driving and horse riding and gave us some good tips on hiking. Food was tremendous and the staff were great. We'll be back......... in summer !

Everyone who wants a first class hotel in South Iceland goes to the Hotel Ranga; it has a well deserved reputation for luxury and fine dining. The set menu is around $100 without wine, so prices are not cheap. The rooms are a mix of standard twin, deluxe twin, and suites. We had one of each. I suggest not booking... More
