Highlands hotel is one of two hotels in the area, hence there is not much of a choice when you want to break the journey into the interior Highlands.
We stayed in unit 2 which was clean and rather large. There is nothing special to the place, I would say « mediocre» is probably the most accurate word to describe it. There were only two other couples when we were there (in July) and there was not a lot going on.
Food was surprisingly good given the fact that it is so remote.
It was worth it in the sense that the views of the inside country are stunning, probably what we liked best in our entire trip to Iceland with the Myvatn region.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Highland is a three star hotel situated at the edge of the Iceland’s most impressive and active volcanic area. From here it is a short distance to many of the most beautiful and popular tourist attractions in the highlands. The area is teeming with great sites for adventure and is the perfect base for visiting as many of them as time allows. It also has a great location to try out all the activities the region has to offer. The vastness and lack of human impact on the surrounding area makes it truly one of the last places in Europe where freedom, natural beauty and solitude are combined in a breathtakingly powerful experience. Hotel Highland offers 16 standard rooms and 4 suites, 2 Family suites for up to 6 people and 2 Luxury suites for up to 4 people. In addition Hotel Highland offers a gourmet restaurant, bar, sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi. The hotel is well accessible by paved road all year round and is only 150 km from Reykjavik. We recommend guests that are planning on staying with us during Winter season to have a 4WD. ... more less
