A new tourist volcano, come and see an amazing sight

A fissure eruption was reported to have begun in an uninhabited area near the last year´s eruption in Fagridalur. As last year it´s expected to have no or little effect on road or air traffic.

There will be a lot of action in Icelandic tourism this summer.

Thanks to all our wonderful guests. Today, we are regarded as one of the best hotels in Iceland. We would like to thank all our wonderful guests for all the positive reviews which no one should take for granted.  You are the promoters of our business. We could not have made this without you.

New cancellation policy. We want to do everything we can to help you book your trip to Iceland with certainty and ease of mind, so we have adjusted our booking terms for reservations for your benefit. Now you may cancel your reservation up to 24 hours before arrival and no fee will be charged.

Remember what our guests say about our chefs: “The food is exceptional! The chef is amazing and we enjoyed every bite from our dinner!!!!! We HIGHLY recommend eating at the restaurant.”

We are a hotel with thermal baths and a sauna, not a SPA hotel. Surrounded by snow and winter, being in a warm outdoor pool or in the sauna room underneath the stars and the northern lights, or during the light summer nights, watching the midnight sun, is a reason enough to visit our hotel. Remember you don’t have to book in advance!

Massage. There is nothing like a massage to relieve stress, promote relaxation and give you a feeling of well-being. Our massages are available for 60 and 90-minute sessions.

We serve a full-course delicious dinner consisting of three dishes: appetiser, main course, and dessert. Every day between 19.00 and 21.00. At dinner, we offer “the catch of the day”. Diners can be seated looking at a presentation kitchen while they are overlooking a panoramic view of south Iceland. The food is served communal style on one long dining table with seats on both sides.  Remember you don’t have to book in advance!

Covid news. We recommend checking in with before you book your trip.

Northern Lights! If you are looking for the best place to watch the northern lights, come and see them from the veranda outside the hotel rooms or even from the comfort of your warm bed.

Stay Small Stay Safe. With just 13 rooms our hotel is able to offer personal service and guidance to secure the safety of our guests.

Our mission statement: To create personal experiences for our guests that they will treasure for a lifetime.

Remember what our guests say about us: „My husband and I actually stayed back in June 2021 and I was reminded to leave a review! We were in Iceland for three weeks and stayed in most of the luxury hotels around the country and I’d have to say this was by far our favourite. The rooms are large and beautiful – this is truly a magical place. Also worth mentioning that breakfast was also the best we had throughout the country. The hosts were absolutely lovely and gave us tons of information before the start of the trip. We hope to return to Iceland for the northern lights and this is where we still stay if we do so.“



We can’t say enough positive things about this hotel experience. This is my fourth trip to Iceland and was a first visit for my Mom and daughter. We’ve been fortunate to stay at some lovely places around the country, but this was by far our favorite. It has the usual amenities in spades… terrific WiFi, huge rooms and bathrooms, a nice modern feel with truly gorgeous furniture and modern, original Icelandic art. We ate dinner and breakfast there and both were outstanding. It’s also a great location with easy access to south Iceland and it’s not far from the Golden Circle. Two things really make this hotel special—the view and the people. The view is stunning in all directions! Like wow! And the people were incredibly kind, authentic, and just lovely. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience & hope to have an opportunity to stay again. Would highly recommend!
