I stayed 1 night during my round trip through Iceland. Let's start with the positive message first - my friend and I were alone in this hotel, that's an awesome experience! Due to this we could choose when we wanted to have breakfast which was delicious. The hotel is very well located and can be a nice base camp to...

Simple, but comfy place to stay when RingRoading Iceland; Fine example of how safe and relaxed Iceland and Icelanders are............lobby was open, no one there upon our arrival; make the phonecall, and Host arrives within 3 minutes; check-in takes 1 minute, done :) Good shower, good bed. Pricing at € 126 is very reasonable; a small fridge in the room...

The drive to the Hotel Varmahlid was gorgeous. However upon entering the community of Laugavegur we quickly realized that the winding river that makes this a popular destination during the warmer months didn't draw anyone in Fall. Not to worry, there is a gas station and store just down the hill which we used because the restaurant doesn't open for...

The hotel's location is easy to find - just off the ring road. The rooms are clean. The bathrooms are fine. The dinner buffet was good - it provided plenty of choices. They also broke down the cost of the buffet as one could have the hot food, or the cold choices or both.

The hotel was very welcoming and clean. The breakfast was good. The only food on offer is the buffet but you can just pick 1, 2 or 3 courses but this is (for English people currently) pretty pricey. There is a supermarket literally next door and that does have a cafe where you can buy budget food (burgers, fish and...

This hotel is just average in comfort, appearance, food. It sits behind a gas station/fast food restaurant and is a stop along the way but nothing memorable. Unless you want to drive to a neighboring town, you are a captive audience at the dinner buffet, which is ok but nothing special. Good craft beer by the bottle, though.

Previous reviews were rather negative, so I was pleasantly surprised here. Room was large and clean, comfortable with tea making equipment. Large bathroom. Lovely evening buffet, friendly helpful staff. Perfect stop on a long drive.

We had a lovely dinner. The buffet includes soup, a nice selection of salads, three main entrees with side dishes and quite a few delicious desserts. Not exactly cheap (6990/person), but it is filling and deliciously prepared food.

We stayed here for 1 night on our journey from Husavik to Reykjavik. The hotel is easy to find being just off the ring road and has a pleasant location up a slight hill with great views across the valley. Unfortunately, that's about as good as it gets. Our room was split in two with a separate double bedroom and...
