Gauksmýri Lodge
Lovely stay
Staff couldn't be more helpful, giving us loads of information on nearby attractions and how to find them. Room was modern and comfortable.

Not a great overnight spot
Not a great overnight here. Room was not particularly comfortable. No WiFi in the room (the connection outside the room was a bit better). Security lights right outside the windows were on all night, and the curtains were definitely not enough to block them out. Loud other guests made it clear that the walls were quite thin. Bathroom had no ventilation, and elsewhere in the hotel we could smell that others had a similar issue. The staff were nice enough, but we were pretty unimpressed by this one. Worth finding different accommodations if possible.
