Just outside the city, so it's a great place for viewing the Northern Lights. The proprietors were so nice! They had a pot of Icelandic meat soup warming in the dining room when we arrived, and it was great!

The hotel offers one of the best views in Iceland. 15 minute drive to Akureyri so quiet surroundings. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Owner was awesome. Friendly and courteous. Only complaint was they ran out of hot food by the time we got to breakfast. No bacon, but they did scramble more eggs. All in all, good place to stay.

A nice hotel by the lake in a beautiful place. There is a room with a telescope for you to see the stars or just to hang out. Breakfast is pretty good. The room is good as well.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and the owners were so nice and helpful. It would have been a great spot to see the Northern lights since it was out of town, but unfortunately it was too cloudy. Our only complaint was the very small bathroom and shower in our room. The breakfast we had was outstanding with so many good choices and warm pastries.

Nice location outside the city of Akureyri. Very nice view of the fjord. Pleasant enclosed porch and outside deck. Difficult lodging for senior citizens—no railing on steps leading to main door. No railing for hot tub—very difficult entry and extremely hot. We had a second floor room and had to climb slippery outside steps with no treds. Breakfast included with a nice variety of food but hot food was not hot. Buffet dinner was very expensive!
