- this place is rather far away from the next village but truly a nice location on the hill. - the air inside is very dry and the carpets in the hallway are very shabby - the dining room has a cold atmosphere of a canteen in the 80ies - however the food is gorgeous and the wine great -...

We were looking for a place near Vik and had to book at the last minute so we didn't have a lot of options. We were very pleasantly surprised at the property. The hotel was larger than most we saw outside of Reykjavik, but I think because it caters to bus tour groups. Our room was on the backside so...

This place was completely disorganized when I stayed in July 2016. Most of the staff seemed to be temps from Eastern Europe who are novices to the hotel sector. Let's start with the - unfortunately - only positive thing that happened during my stay: Even though I had booked a double room for ISK 26,000, the receptionist only charged me...

We stayed in the brand new section, room 199. The room was very nice and spacious. The door opened up to the parking lot so easy to load and unload. The view from the office and restaurant is gorgeous of the beaches. After not finding a place to eat in Vik, we went to the hotel's restaurant but it was...

Hotel Dyrholaey is set high on a hill - seems like every room has either a mountain or ocean view and both are sensational. The rooms are spotless and overall presentation is excellent. There's a large dining area which usually indicates a place where tour buses stop. And that is the case here. It's certainly not a negative. Meals are...

This is a great hotel out in the country area with beautiful views. Sheep were wandering around in front of mountains at your back door. IT has separate wings and we were in a newer area and walked to the restaurant main reception area for dinner/breakfast.

Nice clean, tidy rooms. Our room had not much view, but the views from the dining room were spectacular. Were really late arriving (10pm) so rang ahead, and they arranged for toasted sandwiches to be made available. Thank you, there are not many alternatives round here!! Breakfast bacon & sausages as well as normal icelandic cold fare.

The room was spacious and comfortable. There was a full bathtub as opposed to most other Icelandic hotels where there is just a shower. The wifi was strong and worked in the room as well as public areas. Breakfast was plentiful and the staff was very friendly.

Stayed here as part of a small tour group. It is a hotel catering for tour groups but one of the better ones in We stayed in Iceland. It is out of Vik which is a disadvantage but the view is spectacular regardless of what side of the complex you stay on. The rooms are large and well appointed with...

We had booked two rooms, well in advance, before our stay. One normal room and one specially designed for wheelchair users. When we arrived the only wheelchair user room were given to another person, and the room we got was not adapted. Which caused some problems during our stay. The staff were friendly and really helpful, and adapted the room...
