Great stop for those heading to Landmannalaugar
We stayed here for 1 night because the shuttle pickup for Landmannalaugar was right there. The room was nice and clean. The hot tub right outside the building was an unexpected bonus. The included breakfast was good. That was really helpful because there's not much around that area. There is a restaurant on site and they serve great food.

I was expecting a location closer to the mountain with more activities available in the immediate vicinity. That probably could not be helped due to the fact that Hekla is an active volcano, but we did not have much we could do without some driving.

Not as expected - think carefully before booking!
Think carefully before booking your stay here: Whilst on a map this hotel looks well located if you are travelling between the 3 main tourist attractions of Iceland and the South; it is actually quite awkward to get to, having to double-back on yourself for around 60km distance. It took 1.5hours to get there from Gulfoss. Despite the appearances of the double rooms on their website, what we actually got given was a twin room in a basement by the sauna and the shared bathroom facilities, although clean, were reminiscent of those of a public British swimming pool. Only one of the hot tubs was clean for use, although it was a nice facility to have access to. The room itself was very basic and cramped, just the 2 beds, an old chair, a tiny bedside table and a small shelf with a few hangers. Overall a disappointing experience despite the appearances advertised on their website - I'm glad we only stayed there for one night.
